Are you tired of singing for your aging dogs and cats? Had enough of getting your parents to be your biggest groupies? Have you got some music that you reckon will rock the world? Well then best you keep reading folks, because Converse is proud to announce the return of its hugely successful campaign, Get Out of the Garage. The brand is giving you – the unsigned talent – the opportunity to record a track at Rubber Tracks Studio in Brooklyn, New York City (I’d enter just for that). Plus you’ll get to perform a gig at Rocking the Daisies, as well as at the iconic 100 Club in London.
Interested? Good. The competition opened last week and will remain so until the 8th of August. Judges, Jon Savage, Catherine Grenfell and Reason will then narrow the field down to just 10. It’s then up to you to decide who walks away with this awesome prize. The bands and artists will have their songs showcased on the Converse Facebook page ( www.facebook.com/converse ). If you vote and your band is announced as the winner on the 16th of September, you could be off to London to see them perform… You see with Converse you win, they win… we all win- and we love #Winning.
Last year a guy by the name of Matthew Mole walked off with this title. I’d heard his name, but I never actually put two and two together until I saw this video below. I then realised he was the guy who sang that song (you know what I mean), and I immediately became a fan. Check out his clip below:
