      Are bands that have already been on the compilation series being considered for this special edition, or still just bands which havent been on the comps?

      I'm honored to announce that Stephen Blickenstaff, the iconic artist who did the cover art for the Cramps' Bad Music for Bad People LP (1983) will be designing the cover art for a special Halloween-themed volume of the comp series with a target release date of early October. I'm beyond thrilled! Oh, and Haunted George (aka Uncle Yah-Yah of the Haunted Shack Theater podcast) will be pulling together some b-movie/horror film soundbites to sandwich in between the songs. Muhahaha!! BANDS: Get your creepiest original songs in as soon as you can for this! Deadline will be September 16.

      I thought it was for the last volume. The track "Puppy Dog".
      I'll have a dig around and see what else we have that would be a suitable contender.

      Thanks! :)

      No, they don't need to be resubmitted. I keep them all on file. Although if it's been a few volumes since you submitted, there's not a good chance it'll get used. If that's the case, you're welcome to submit another song.

      Kopper,

      Do tracks submitted for the previous comp get considered for the next one, or do they need to be resubmitted?

      We'll keep you in mind for Vol. 10... currently have artists lined up for the next two.

      If you do it through CD Baby, it's a one time fee. At least it was last time I did it.

      Oh, and one more thing: The TuneCore fees for distribution of the comps to all the major online music retailers (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Spotify, Rhapsody, etc.) costs $50/year per volume.

      Oh, and one more thing: The TuneCore fees for distribution of the comps to all the major online music retailers (iTunes, Amazon, eMusic, Spotify, Rhapsody, etc.) costs $50/year per volume. So, Ning hosting fees aside, that's an extra $350 for the first year of digital distribution for the first seven volumes right there, and that's not counting the first two volumes, which I've just spent another $100 on renewing for another year. Right now, they're selling enough to cover these distribution fees, but at some point in the future they'll stop selling all that well and I'll have to take them down. At that point I'll probably just throw in the towel and make 'em free for everybody.

      The point of the GRGPNK Records group is not to let just anybody who wants the comps have them for free. The reason it's private is so that we can control access to the free downloads. When I first came up with the idea for the comps, I wanted to just give 'em all away for free to anyone who wanted one. But some people thought that was a stupid idea; that we should sell them and use the money to help fund the site and pay for Ning's hosting fees. Others thought they should be free since the bands weren't sharing in any revenue. One of the biggest problems I noticed right away after the release of the first volume was that people started joining the Hideout specifically to get access to the free comps. Aside from that, they didn't really care about the site or being a member of a rock'n'roll community; they just wanted free music. Lame. So I knew I had to do something to fix this, and the compromise I came up with was to use the GRGPNK Records group as a private, members-only area that's used to reward those members who remain actively involved with the site (at least a few times per month)... those who visit regularly, contribute/post often, invite friends, chat, share content... you know, PARTICIPATE! That's what the Hideout is all about. Without active participation from a good chunk of people, this site would be worthless. So we're rewarding those "active members" by letting them download the comps free of charge. The rest of the people (the majority of our members) who do not actively participate will have to pay for them, but at less than $10 per volume, it's not asking a whole lot from them. So I would suggest, if you really want the comps for free, then you should start visiting more often and making more of an effort to be part of the community we've built here over the past decade. If you can't or don't want to make that effort, fine, but you'll have to pay for the comps. Again, they're cheap enough that that shouldn't really be asking too much. Make sense?

      Of course. Nowhere does it say you need a Facebook account. What made you think that, anyway?

      Thanks for another Comp, Kopper. These are handy to have when doing house hold chores or lazing about relaxing with a beer.

      Cheers!

      Well, yeah, the deadline for the next volume. However, you can continue to submit songs for future volumes.

      Thanks.
