All Members , Moderated

This is a community dedicated to music, where people can tell everyone about the new band they're in love with, post reviews of albums and gigs or let people know about dates when bands are doing sessions on the radio and just general stuff like that.

The Rules

These are easy enough, just read and follow.

1/ Tolerence is always good; just because a person likes The White Stripes and you happen to think Jack White is a knob, thats no reason to start slagging their music taste off, HOWEVER you can be as mean as you like to emo-kids and fans of Busted, McFly or the eternally evil Maroon 5.

2/ This isn't a rating community and anyone can join but if you can post the Introduction (see below)as your first post, it will be greatly appreciated, you know just so we know what we are dealing with.

3/ Long posts and pictures should be put under a LJ cut, because it's your friends page I'm thinking about here... The name of your LJ cut should also say what is in that link, its just easier that way.

4/ No camara whores, we don't care what you look like, this community isn't about looks its about music and just generally making our geeky music-obsessed selves feel superior to everyone else because we own the albums of bands most people haven't heard of.

5/ Only promote relevent communities, and make sure its under a LJ cut, and only one promo a day, any posts that go against this will just be deleted.

6/ When talking about a band try and include a website or label, just to make it easier for people to track down.

7/ Please try to make a post as soon as you join, even if it's just to say Hi, actually, especially if it's just to say Hi, Random greetings are far too under-rated...

8/ Feel free to post any reviews you have written about albums or post pictures from gigs you have been to. General questions about peoples' opinions on certain bands/albums/songs are also very wecome.

Your Mods- enemies_friends & absolutment

Although this is NOT a rating community, If you want to fill in this introduction questionaire, just so everyone knows what you're into then it will be greatly appreciated!!!
