I'm going to be designing a new portfolio and a multi-band related site soon, and want to be geared towards music and bands as I have been on here already. Now what would you guys like to see in term of graphical look of something like that? As fellow musicians, you're the guys I need, and the ones it needs to appeal to. So what kind of things you lookin for?

If you can, answer in this form if it matters, put each thing on 1-10 scale.

Logo: __
Flashiness: ___
Cool Text: ___
Organized: ___

Which do you prefer? Myspace bandsite vs. Purevolume bandsite (features and design)

Any other comments can go here.

Logo: 8 - Needs to attract
Flashiness: 0 - Who cares? Its the music, right?
Cool Text: 5 - Agian, needs to attract with the logo
Organized:10 - The most important. If you appear unorganised, it wont look as professional.

Definately Purevolume. Myspace isnt as good as everyone thinks these days, espeically when it comes to promotion. And its programmers are probabaly 12 years old or something.

Thanks guys for your comments! Anybody else?

Also: By Design of Myspace vs. PureVolume, I also mean the graphical interfaces given, which are liked more. As in the somewhat tech-ish feel to purevolume as opposed to well, i can't quite describe exactly...

I like the idea of PureVolume because Myspace has really been shot to hell with all the people going around "whoring" themselves
plus, the purevolume layout is band friendly, since that site is still about the music
its just that there aren't that many fans on purevolume so make sure it appeals to both i guess

Personally, I'm not sure I understand what "cool text" is.

Myspace and purevolume are different sites. Myspace is a lot more customizable from what I've seen, and much more popular.

As for "whoring" on myspace, you can monitor your own site...and having a fan base of 80,000 fans who don't listen to even one second of your music and use your page as a spam-dump for their ads, will not help you get your music out. So, monitoring it is essential - if they leave spam, delete the comment and delete them.

But, bottom line, there's no reason why you can't have a myspace and a purevolume and an isound account - so make em all if you want?

see I don't think it needs to be the band's job to figure out who does and doesn't listen to the music
on a site like myspace, it is very possible that people are going around spamming comments and stuff
on PureVolume, it is truly dedicated to music and its not as easy for people to go around doing that
