Last fall Margot & The Nuclear So And So's found a new home with Epic Records. We've been watching the little band grow up a lot, and even had them come to our HQ for an acoustic performance back in 2006.
This morning vocalist Richard Edwards posted an interesting MySpace bulletin, asking for contributions and help on the band's upcoming project; three albums made about three specific people. If you think your life needs some spice, and want Margot & The Nuclear So And So's to write about you, then peep the message below for information on how to apply.
Here's the rub...
I'm planning to compose, and record, a collection of three albums about three specific people. I'd like to take applications from people who would like to have an album composed about them. The application must be...
1. 500 words about yourself and your background.
I'm searching out people on my own as well.
If I feel like I'd like to use you in some way, you will need to be available for MANY more questions, as well as be able to provide alot of material about yourself.
Old school photos
old love letters
etc, etc. etc......
This will probably take me four years. The first one should be ready in 2009/2010.
Even if your application doesn't make the final cut, no doubt through lack of vision on my part, I have a great project for all of the applications. And EVERYONE will be involved.
This is VERY important to me. It's the future of margot recordings, and a major undertaking for the next few years of my life. I hope you will be involved. I will be in contact with any of you who decide to participate.
