News : Buyer beware

strahany writes"saw this note from Venue music (SYDNEY) - thought the MELBAND community could benefit:

I AM GETTING WORRIED ABOUT THE AUCTION RIP OFFS

AUCTION SITES as you know I have written about auction

sites before but in the last few months the number
of FAKE guitars has been showing up is really alarming
They must think we in Australia are a lot of really stupid
people

GIBSON’S EPIPHONES FENDERS all the TOP guitar
brands. Its bad enough to get ripped off with a NO-NAME
brand but to get cheated and disappointed when you thought
you had purchased the real thing are actually criminal.
Now these guys who are selling this crap are usually in
CHINA and Hong Kong. Hiding behind e mail address
That they change often and the chance of getting any thing
likes a refund is ZERO

How can any body believe you can buy a Gibson or Fender
for starting price of .99 cents, But wait check the freight $400
usually what crap!!!!!

More importantly this is a blatant rip off and when the
lump of wood they call a guitar arrives there is nothing you
can do. You have done your dough, Also worse there are now Australian people buying the
rubbish and then reselling them on to the public on the
same auction site. Shame on them .Why don’t they go rob a
bank or something that takes more guts than stealing the
hard earned dollars from honest folk like this.


Be careful folks, no one with 1/2 a brain and 2 seconds
thought can believe you can buy a Gibson or Fender etc
for something like $3/400. It is B/S and you will be the loser
I saw an ad for a "BRAND NEW STANDARD
STRATOCASTER MADE IN MEXICO" "BUT the idiot put
PRODUCT OF CHINA in the ad
HOW DOES THAT WORK ? MADE IN MEXICO;
PRODUCT OF CHINA? DUH !!!!!!!!!!
STUPID YES BUT NOT AS STUPID AS THE POOR
DUMMY WHO BUYS ONE AND FINDS OUT ITS NOT REAL.

And cannot do anything about it
You have NO PROTECTION OR RIGHTS ON THE
AUCTION SITE AS THE SAY. BUYER BEWARE!!!!!
AND THEN WHEN I DID COMPLAIN TO THE AUCTION
SITE PEOPLE THAT THIS STUFF WAS FAKE ETC THERE
REPLY TO ME WAS
"WE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THE PRODUCTS
WE ARE NOT EXPERTS AND WE JUST HOST THE ADS"
IN OTHER WORDS, TOUGH LUCK DUMMY !
BE CAREFUL BUY FROM AN AUTHORIZED FENDER OR
GIBSON EPIPHONE ETC! STORE THAT YOU CAN GET
SERVICE AND THINGS FIXED IF THEY NEED IT AND KNOW
YOU ARE GETTING THE REAL THING. PLUS THE GUITAR
COMPANIES STAND BEHIND THEIR DEALERS
THE FINE BRAND NAME GUITARS GO TO A HUGE
AMOUNT OF TROUBLE TO BRING THE BEST TO THE
MARKET .THE HIGHEST QUALITY THEY CAN AND EVERY
DAY THERE REPUTATION RIDES ON THERE PRODUCTS.

DON’T LET THIS CLEARLY ILLEGAL FAKE B/S COPY
BUSINESS RUIN 100"S OF YEARS OF GOOD GUITAR
MAKING .YOU WILL BE REWARDED BUY INCREASING
VALUE AND MORE IMPORTANT THE PLEASURE OF
PLAYING A FINE INSTRUMENT.

TAKE CARE BUY CAREFULLY DON’T LOSE YOUR HARD
EARNED MONEY TO PEOPLE WHO DON’T CARE AND WILL
RIP YOU OFF IN A FLASH KNOWING THEY ARE
PROTECTED AND HIDDEN BEHIND THE AUCTION SITEWEB
AND A BUNCH OF B/S NAMES THAT CHANGE ALL THE
TIME ANY TIME YOU SEE AN AD FOR SOME THING THAT
MAY BE A RIP OFF FEEL FREE TO ASK US WE HAVE 25

YEARS OF UNBLEMISHED SERVICE AND 100'S OF
1000’S SATISFIED CUSTOMERS .WE WILL TELL YOU THE
TRUTH. IF IT’S REAL NO PROBLEM
IF ITS A RIP OFF WE WILL TELL YOU QUICK SMART
MUSICIANS AND MUSIC FIRST HAS BEEN OUR THING
FOR 25 YEARS"

News : Record YR MusicOZ Awards entry LIVE in Melbourne!

VicMUSIC writes"The Musicoz Awards are open and what better way to enter than record your entry live! There’s limited places to record your entry live at the Noise bar in Brunswick every Thursday night in July & at Zudio Studio in Clayton on Sunday the 16th & 23rd July!

In partnership with VicMUSIC, NoiseTV and Zudio Studio, Musicoz is excited to announce that Melbourne’s unsigned artists have the opportunity to lay down their tracks to enter the annual Musicoz Awards – Australia’s biggest Awards for unsigned artists.

Recording in a professional studio can produce excellent results for bands but there are those bands and solo artists who are currently either just starting off and can’t afford studio time or haven’t got home recording facilities. Not only that, but some performers tend to play better live and so what better way to get your songs on a CD and enter the Musicoz Awards at the same time?

“It’s cheap means of recording and it’s a great way to hear how you sound live,” said Kimberley Hopkins, Publicist for Musicoz. “It costs $25 per song to enter the Musicoz Awards and like all entries, if you record a fourth song at Noise bar, it’s for free. So in a nutshell, the recording is free and you enter those songs into the Musicoz Awards. It’s that easy!”

By entering the Musicoz Awards, artists are in the running to win over a hundred thousand dollars in cash and prizes and industry opportunities including instruments from Turramurra Music, mastering at Turtlerock, production deals with Faultline Records, Tone Market and Central Station Records (to name just a few). Plus other awesome prizes like recording time at Trackdown, Velvet Studios, Mainstreet and Studio 301. Check out the website for the humongous list.

Julie Kilpatrick, President of VicMUSIC heard about the Musicoz live recordings that were happening in Sydney and wanted to offer the service to musicians in Melbourne. “I thought it was a great idea and VicMUSIC wanted to get involved. Our aim is promote the growth and development of original contemporary music in Victoria, both as an art form and as an industry, so it was a perfect fit,” said Julie.
So get ready! Contact VicMUSIC now to make a booking on a particular date. Remember, it’s first in, first recorded for this amazing opportunity.

Entries for the Musicoz Awards are open until July 31 and the Awards are held on December 7th in Wollongong, NSW and broadcast on national television.

Performance Bookings: VicMusic: 0410 564 364 (between 9am - 7pm) or info@vicmusic.org.au
www.musicoz.org for rules and regulations on entering Musicoz

With thanks and support from VicMUSIC, NoiseTV and Zudio Studio."

News : Public Revolution launches world first Video Gig Guide for indie artists.

founder writes"See before you go is the is message from new Australian 100% indie showcase site and online store www.publicrevolution.com. Just launched, the Video Gig Guide allows indie fans, labels and venues to preview artist's live gigs before going. The idea was the brainchild of Public Revolution's IT Director Ini Nam, who also co-designed Public Revolution's impressive 100% flash site. For fans it's free to use but only artists/labels that register with the site as members can gain access to placing their gigs in the guide due to the complimentary video editing done by PR. Current artists with videos to preview include The Winnie Coopers, The Kentinos, 8 Ball Aitken, Elation, Sydonia, and Men In Blues.Other impressive features for indie artists and fans on the PR site include 24/7 streaming radio, backstage pics gallery, indie ringtones, reviews, plus the site features other forms of independent art such as short film previews, animation and a mini-digital art gallery, and heaps more. See it for yourself at http://www.publicrevolution.com ."

News : Public Revolution get exclusive release of new songs by 26.

founder writes"Melbourne rockers 26 and online indie portal www.publicrevolution.com have announced new songs Let Down and Friendly Fire to be released exclusively through Public Revolution.com. The agreement comes in the wake of their successful first album The King Must Die which received widespread acclaim and airplay on JJJ, and netted the band thousands of myspace fans. Self managed, 26 are one of the smart new breed of bands taking full advantage of the internet to DIY their success to retain full ownership and control of their songs, image, career and ultimately all profit.
"The internet now allows bands/managers to do their own marketing and advertising which is really where Public Revolution shines." commented founder Terry Church, "We designed the site to be much more than just a free online store 'plug-in' for indie artists/managers, it's true purpose is an advertising portal with streaming radio, video, gig guide, and many places for artists to be featured." Church said.
Singer and manager Nick O'donnell agreed as to the internet's advantages by saying "Sites like myspace and Public Revolution allowed us to organise our whole tour and sales online. We chose Public Revolution because they're all about quality... their mp3's are the highest at 192kbps and sell for 99cents, and they don't allow just anyone to upload and join - you have to submit your music and be invited." He said. "It's also nice to see some financial reward for a change rather than give our songs away."
The songs Let Down and Friendly Fire will be available exclusively through www.publicrevolution.com for the entire month of July following their coming tour which starts in Adelaide on the 13th of July and finishes in Brisbane on the 20th July. For full details go to www.26theband.com or www.myspace.com/26theband or look for them on www.publicrevolution.com."
