This is one of those programs that I "stumbled" across late night TV on my FOX station in NY, right after "Mad TV" was over and before the onslaught of late night infomercial TV. The premise is simple: unsigned bands are given their one shot at recording a demo song/video at the Sam Ash studios (Sam Ash being the huge music retailer that has a large presence in the NJ/NY area), and viewers are encouraged to rate the songs via the show's website. I can't tell you how overjoyed I am at how good ol' rock n' roll music is still here. A majority of the bands play music that is a hybrid of modern rock/punk imbibed with twinge of angst, so sorry, no bubble gum Britney Spears or cutesy boy bands are permitted (and the world heaves a collective sigh of relief)! I for, one, voted for bands such as Earl Greyhound and Sloan as their music is definitely worthy at being looked at by the major record labels. It's a rockin' 30 minutes of audio pleasure....good luck to all the bands that appear on the show, may you make it big in the huge landscape of the slanted world of music.
