    My band\'s first site, comments please?

    My band\'s official site is now up and running. I had some problems with the design but they are all worked out now.

    If you have a minute, I\'d like to know what you think so we can keep it in mind for future redesigns.

    Our first single should be available for download in the next month or so. Thanks!

    Nice..really slick design!

    Word of warning: be cautious about putting email addresses on your web site. Spam bots scour the web looking for them, and add them to their mailing lists.. you\'ll get junk mail soon enough. It\'s best to have a \"contact us\" form that users can fill out to send you a message. The down side of this is that you probably need someone to program you an application to handle the form and e-mail it to you. I\'m sure there are free ones out there.. I just don\'t know of any.

    Great site.. good luck with your first album! What kind of music is it? Can we hear anything as a preview?

    Musical genre? Rock, emo, punk, alittle from coloumn A, little from coloumn B...

    A Preview?

    Keep in mind this is a very rough scratch-track that we laid down just to get a feel for the sound of it on tape (or the sound of it on HDD that is [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] ). It\'s still missing the drums and bass and backing vox, this was just my guitar and a little GPO. I posted the track a couple weeks ago, the discussion thread for it is here: http://www.northernsounds.com/ubb/NonCGI/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=3;t=006808

    Thanks again,

    Ok, here\'s the feedback.

    Intro\'s a bit on the slow side, and I couldn\'t tell when it was done.

    You could use a few roll overs, I had a hard time at first figuring out what was clickable.

    No background music? No background sound? What\'s up? You\'re a band!

    Ok, the good news is that it looks good.

    One comment: The naked chick needs to be in the band.

    If the chick is *not* in the band, clothes or otherwise, then there may be a riot at your first gig -- which may be the very thing to get you noticed...

    I am going to put in some extra action-scripting so after about 4 seconds of the band photo the Flash file will jump automatically to the home page, but should the whole file be sped up also?

    A dead chick and a noose on a mostly black background. Cool!

    Who is the Naked Chick anyway? Is she single?
