That interview I did with the ladies at on10.net is online here.

I did an interview with the Lodebearing podcast where we talked about some things. I got Skype working for this interview but then they couldn’t record it. So now I have a Skype account with like three people in it who are never online. Welcome to the future.

Winner of the “most unexpected award I’ve been given this year”: Brad Sucks was the Small Business Blog of the Day over at Pajama Market the other day and there’s a nice little write-up. Crazy stuff.

Update: I answered some follow-up questions that are now posted here.

I’m doing an interview on on10.net tomorrow talking with Laura Foy and Tina Wood about music, remixing and uh how I’m not totally boring. It’ll be my first combination webcam + voip interview so I’m sure it’ll go great and not be completely awkward. Anyway I’ll update here when it’s online, I have no idea how quick the turnaround is on these things or if it’s live or whatever the hell.

Update: interview’s done, it went all right I think. Laura and Tina were real nice and didn’t ask me to take my top off on cam so I’m relieved I wasn’t sexually exploited. I’m told the segment should be up in a week or so.

I like being in press releases. Podcast Network Releases Indie Album by Brad Sucks:

TAMPA, Fla., April 18 /PRNewswire/ — Release of the indie album, “I Don’t Know What I’m Doing” by Brad Sucks, marks the debut of Slo-Monkey, the music label behind the Emergency Podcast System (http://www.emergencypodcastsystem.com). The quirky, witty album’s release is backed by a TV campaign on Former Vice President Al Gore’s cable network, Current TV. Current TV serves over 20 million households nationwide and has an energetic youth audience.

Smart lyrics and danceable tunes made indie band Brad Sucks an obvious choice for the Slo-Monkey label. Says music contract guy Lil’ Dawgg, “If we find ourselves singing the tunes around the office, we know we have a winner.”

Here’s the ad that’ll be running: (.MOV) Looks like they paid that girl to dance to my music. Right on.

Anyway it’s a non-exclusive deal and they seem like nice dudes over there. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

My music gets compared to Beck a fair amount. Sometimes it’s kind of a drag because everybody wants to be original of course. Anyway this Seattle Times article doesn’t call me the “poor man’s Beck”, it literally says I’m more affordable to license than Beck:

If your neighbor’s daughter’s garage band isn’t quite the sound you were seeking, you can explore rights-cleared music on sites like Magnatune (magnatune.com), which offers speedy commercial licensing for music in a variety of genres. You may not be able to afford the Beck tune you were hoping for, but you might find a serviceable “ironic electro-pop” substitute in a one-man band called “Brad Sucks” for a significantly reduced cost (depending on the type and scope of the project, this could be as low as 50 bucks).

Guess I’ll add that to the ol’ press kit: “A serviceable [Beck] substitute” – The Seattle Times

I did an email interview with Teo Zilla a while back and the article is online now: Brad Sucks, harbinger of a dark-age? Mom always said I’d be a harbinger of a dark age. (Part 2 is here.)

Zach wrote in to tell me that he heard a version of my song Dirtbag in a Fark.com trailer mashup contest. The entry is by Mike Hindes and called Toy Story 2 Requiem. It’s a hilarious mash-up trailer of the movies Toy Story 2 and Requiem for a Dream.

(15mb WMV) (Warning: there’s some R-rated language.) Very awesome. It almost makes me glad I sat through 90% of Requiem for a Dream so I could find this extra funny. Almost. I’ll never forgive that movie.

I also like how absurd the level of mashup-ness is getting on my music. “Hey, an Israeli remix of your song was used in a movie trailer mashup!” Say what now?

I’ll be on the “Blog-Rolling” panel at Canadian Music Week in Toronto on Saturday, March 4th. So if you happen to be there, feel free to throw something at me.

I’ve never been to one of these fancy music conferences so it’ll be interesting. I have so much great, great advice for other independent musicians I don’t know if an hour will be long enough. I also hope I can go the entire hour without saying the phrase “whore yourself out”. We’ll see how I do!

Victor sends word that I’m the 2nd most remixed artist on ccMixter. Because being number one would be uncool
