Much unlike Dartz who arranged a fee to play TMA...
I have a stall [thank you kindly paul x] at stockton fringe and refuse to charge anything to sell band merchandise and will even make lo-fi tees for you for a 1.20 each if necessary. Let me know and I'll happily sell your goods free of charge [well a cheap drink will go well but I dont really give a fuck as long as you have a price list]

What's wrong with getting paid to do what you do? how is a band supposed to exist and pay the bills if they don't charge a fee?

Being a musician, in their case at least, is a full-time job I believe ?

You wouldn't expect any other line of work to do their job/pay the bills/feed a family/whatever by doing your work for free just because it's local.


Great work on the clothes/merch stall though.

Cracking idea.

do the bands not get paid like?

Can't imagine Echo and the Bunnymen doing it for a couple of cans of warm lager and some crisps. Am i missing something here?

Aye, apparently we are the only band in the whole world who agree fees before they play gigs.

What's your point?

I assume you only say things like that to try and wind me up Luke, but that in itself is beyond bizarre considering you've never actually properly met me and don't know me at all.

Hopefully we can have a nice chat at the Fringe Festival and I can discover if you're as much of a childish, pathetic, jealous, bitter little cunt in real life as you are on the internet.

Bigger fool you.
So tell me, as I'm intrigued as to why exactly you'd want to do that? Now maybe it's me being greedy and selfish but I don't get what you're going to get out of that other than being able to arselick bands? (which you're doing a pretty bad job of at the moment hahaha)

Oh, and also, won't every band that's getting paid have agreed a fee? Like, surely there's an amount they have to give to bands so whoever's putting it on know how much they are giving each band in advance? It's not like they have to wait to see how many people turn up before they can.

Eeeee local band politics!

can we just leave this they are getting more money than me crap
please the last thing we want is an oasis vs blur style war here
anyone else worred about not getting paid look at your email from tma asking for your adress and who to make a cheque out to that sound clear things up
ok  can just leave this tread for the merch stail rather than a slagging off dartz for asking an  for a set amount
i was useing the couple of bears thing as a nice way of not talking about set amounts which is not the resason we write and perform music.

sorry for the rant but it`s kinda geting out of hand now

so can we stop talking about it now and just about merch

Fuck Dartz!, their a satchel of small time chomps.

I'm getting 25 million quid for doing the afterparty on Saturday, plus expenses, and 6 biznitches so I can sit there like Snoop Dogg while I shot on a pre-mixed essential mix from 2 years ago.

Trees, wild flowers, birds.

just another week then  ;D plus i get to go and do durham for 24 million quid and some well chilled bears (polar beers).
my burns roks t-shirt still hasnt arrived yet, im gonna get on to your merch people.

why singe out DARTZ! for getting a pre arranged fee? its a natural progresion to have an agent at the level they are at on the national gigging circuit.. agents get well itchy if you do a show over their heads, even for mates/local. good on em, gets more gigs and they dont have to worry about haggling.

i could be your agent, 50/50 plus expenses?
