Q: How do you get your songs on the web?
A: All our digital distribution has been done through http://www.tunecore.com - they're a portal where an artist can upload his / her / its original music to the web (iTunes, Amazon, Spotify etc) for a very small yearly fee.
Q: I illegally downloaded your music, what can I do to make this right?
A: Please consider making a donation via Paypal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Q: Can I use / license your songs/sound clips?
A: Sure, but please contact us first with details.
Q: How much does an average license cost? Will you write a song for my cool project?
A: It depends on the song, and the use. Cost ranges from the equivalent of a few beers, to a few dinners at the Ritz. There's a difference between a film student needing a song for a project, and an ad company looking for a jingle. Please contact us with your project and we'll work something out!
Q: Do you have a presence on other sites?
A: As an independent band you, our listeners, are our biggest asset. Big record companies pay a lot of money to hype product, and we're incredibly grateful fo you who have gotten the word out to their friends about us, not because we paid you, but because you liked something we did.
Q: That's, uh, great, but do you have a presence on other sites?
A: Right, sorry. we have a page on MySpace and on Facebook The Facebook one is the one most up to date. Also, a cool person made a last.fm page for us.
Q: How do you get your sound in [insert song name]?
A: We try to list as much information on each song in the site's music section, including choice of gear Generally, you'll hear a Danelectro baritone guitar from the 1950s played through blackface Fender amps (a Pro Reverb and Deluxe Reverb.) As far as keyboards, one usual suspect is the Moog Opus 3 usually played through distortion or overdrive pedals and also recorded through an amp.
Q: I'm trying to play [insert song name] on my guitar, but it doesn't sound quite right, what gives?
A: For the songs that have open strings used, you really need a baritone guitar. Depending on the song, the baritone tuning used is either a perfect fourth or fifth below a regular guitar with the bottom string dropped a whole step. So A E A D F♯ B for a perfect fourth below, and G D G C E A for a perfect fifth.
Q: Where can I find the tabs to your songs?
A: You can find tabs to the intro to Blood Gulch Blues and A Girl Named Tex here and here
Q: But I want the tabs to a different song :(
A: The tabs were made by fans -- if you make a tab which you think is correct, please email it to Nico
