Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Bollocks To Capitalism!

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

Overtone has received over 50 albums in the past week from anyone and everyone looking to get involved in the compilation CD deal being offered us by That’s Hot Promotions. We’ve seen some horrible stuff, and some awesome stuff, but so far, we have to give it to Arlyn for a blurb on the back of his CD saying “Bollocks To Capitalism: Copy This CD”. At least there’s one artist in South Africa who’s seen the light.

Stick it to the man, yo. And while you’re at it, stick an Overtone banner in your blog, homepage or Myspace page. Like Arlyn. Grab a banner now.
