Get over to http://magicship.wordpress.com/2009/07/23/popping-my-broadcast-cherry/ to read about Magic ship on the radio.
The website says "On Sky Digital and around the world on the Internet – this is Radio Caroline." And for two weeks starting this Friday 24th July between 1400 hours and 1800 hours GMT Radio Caroline presenter Jim Ross will play various tracks from the Magic Ship album 'LoveTel Motel' on his afternoon show.
So if you want to support Magic Ship, why not send Jim an email - firstname.lastname@example.org – and request your favorite track off the album? He'd get a huge buzz out of hearing from you with your requests and dedications.
We're also being played on Tim Charles' Thursday evening 'Magic Carpet Ride' show which has a classic rock slant. Tim is also a DJ on European Klassic Rock and is playing our album on his 'Durrango Blues' midnight show.
About 247 years ago, Col posted our song 'Fly!' on we7.com. We got some reviews and passed the Tastemaker Challenge. That sounds like a good thing to me! You can download "Fly!" from iTunes. You can also buy the CD with that song on. The album's called 'LoveTel Motel' and you can get it from CDBaby.com and Amazon.
Let the reviews commence!
"A good driving track with an infectious guitar riff. The production is good as is the quality of the vocal and backing. The only thing sightly lacking is any form of variation or light and shade. The song could do with a middle 8 or something contrasting to break it up a bit and to give the track structure, otherwise it can tend to be a bit bland after several listens. At 2:42 it could also do with a bit of lengthening."
"Fantastic lyrics, I love the name "Magic Ship" and i think this song could be very sucessful! Well Done!!"
"Bar Band grade. Not suckful. Would even tip."
"Magic Ship has a potential! sounds like old school rock what is great to car and so. But i dont know if I let to you to my mp3 player... but nice work!"
"This song kicks off with a solid riff and, even though it feels a little '90s, it is quite catchy. Vocal style is similar to Stereophonics, and lead guitar is similar to Oasis. 'Fly' is quite short, but is probably worth a look if you are a britpop fan."
"this songs rather cool to be honest :)"
"like it realy cheerfull lifting"
"up beat, rocky live feel, good voice."
"WRONG GENRE! THIS IS NOT CLASSICAL MUSIC! THIS IS ROCK FOR GOD SAKE!"
"this song is a very unique style of pop music very good"
You can still buy our debut CD from there. You can download the entire album in MP3 format from there. Now they have added the ability to download individual MP3 tracks. Great!
If you haven't already. Get yourself over to www.cdbaby.com/cd/magicship and treat yourself to a copy of our album. You can download it. We'd be happy if you bought a real CD from them. We get less money, but you get the real deal. We spent a long time working on making a great product, so treat yourself and make the band happy.
Be sure to leave us a review too!
Thanks to TC for providing, installing and breaking down the PA too. Excellent.
Dave has had his skin for about a year now and everytime the bass drum comes out of its case we know it's business time. Check it out in the gallery (http://www.magic-ship.com/photos.html) and at the Customskins official website:
