Last. FM has announced that they want to help you kick start your music career by using all the amazing resources of this Web 2.0 world by launching their Now Form a Band initiative as part of their A Campaign For Better Music.
According to their manifesto,
We’re going to show you how to produce, promote and distribute your music, without spending a load of money, and without lots of other people getting involved.
The cool thing about this campaign is they high lite free software and websites that you can utilize to get your music heard. Sounds like a worthwhile time investment to me. I am just getting into the whole Last.Fm thing and I must admit it is pretty cool. So far it looks like CBS in buying the site hasn’t screwed it up too much.
