Who Would You Sign To Your Fake Record Label?

Posted by - 01:28 PM on 04/13/12
Say that you were going to start a record label ... today. You've got 5 spots to fill, and they've got to be filled up with bands that you could reasonably get on your label. That means, they're either unsigned or on a relatively small record label that you could probably buy out to get them to come on over (it's a hypothetical, have fun with it). You're not getting Bruce Springsteen, you're not gonna convince Thrice to come back, and you're not getting Brand New on your label. Gotta think harder than that. So, who do you put on your roster? Who are the 5 bands you sign?

My Fake Record Label Signings
1) Daybreaker
2) David Wazeter
3) Andy Burrows
4) House of Heroes
5) Cary Brothers

Who makes your list?

1. Courtney Marie Andrews
2. Lydia
3. The Naked + Famous (Might be too big)
4. School of Seven Bells
5. Club 75 (Would be awesome to see them get a proper release)

It'd be fun to do this with more rules set up (Label budget, some way to determine how much it would cost to buy out a band, etc. Kind of like one of those projects you'd do in an econ class. Maybe see who on AP could come up with the most financially successful label.)

I love the "Godzilla Records" name. Does that actually exist?
