Hey pit, i havent been around in a while, just lurking here and there.

IDK how long this is going to be, so if it looks long, there will be a TL;DR at the end.

but this arguement came up with the a member in the band I am in. he kind of deemed himself "frontman" and leader. it gets anoying at times. anyway.
He has been wanting to get promos done for a while. Im all done for some nice promos. and he put this on us today that we NEED to get promos, but since the person we were gonna have take pictures, whos is pretty good, we are not going professional or anything, cant do them, we are having our friend take pictures witha digital camera. my fellow band member feels this

"But without any promos at all we look like we don't really care about the music we play at all."

i personally think this is crazy. I need your opinion on the importantance of promos, how you view a band with cheap crappy promos to having no promos, and if it shows how a band feels about thier music if they dont have them


TL;DR Band member thinks we NEED promos(read bolded statement^^) how do you feel about promos.

If you want to make it big and don't do promos, I think it would look like you don't care. But, if you're doing it for fun, who cares?

well im not saying we are not going to do promos, but we have a 2 song demo out, we dont even have a full set written, and i want to do the promos in maybe a few weeks when we can, but he feels if we dont do it NOW we wont get anywhere.

If you want to make it you need as much of everything as you can. Someone has to be a bit of a twat sometimes to get stuff done. Listen to the guy
Ok waiting a couple of weeks dont matter

I totally read the thread title as band pornos.

OT, usually when I see a band with poor promos I think A. they don't know what they're doing or B. they just don't care. If you're trying to get yourself out in the world, a bad promo certainly isn't going to help you but if you guys are just playing to have some fun, I don't really think they're necessary at all.

Yeah, not necessary. If anything they make you look pretentious ...................or hilarious!
