I know you're spamming, but you would be a little more legit if the bands you covered were actually pop punk, like not Sparks.
just like absolutepunk would be a little more legit by not covering anything but punk? let them do their stuff, my friend.
i'm afraid as to what could happen to STR now. i don't think they'll be unsigned for long, but it would be nice for them to reach a comfort zone quickly.
edit: i'm not familiar with kickstarter, but holy fuck they're offering everything in exchange for a little help. i feel really bad not being able to help.
