This amazed us. We actually have the video of Pete Jones on Amazon prime worldwide. See USA above and Japan below for example. Now families can sit together round the fire in their mansions, 2 up/2 downs or mud huts and enjoy 4 minutes of Granny prog! It's a brave new world!
In case you aren't an Amazon subscriber, then we would say the Yellowstone is almost as nice as the Amazon
Steve Pilkington has written a brilliant review of our album for The Classic Rock Society.
Classic Rock Society is one of the most admired Classic rock magazines in the world. Unfortunately, this issue sold out in under a week, so I have grabbed the review to post but you may want to visit CRS. www.classicrocksociety.co.uk/
I do deliver all over the world, as you can see in the short professionally made video above.
Hair is a winner! No strings attached.
Hair in a G-String ended 2016 on a big high. Number 1 on Progarchives and that was never expected. I even wondered if it was "Prog enough" to be accepted by the experts there. Tho', I have a very high regard for the people that run it. Now PROG mag has maybe gone forever, we need guys like this to keep the flag flying. We spent many weeks at number 1 on bandcamp in Prog and Peter Jones was the next guy to be at number 1 there for weeks. We have hogged that spot between us for longer than I've ever seen on there before. We have made top 10s all over the place and of course, sold a few albums. In the end, it is supporters (and many of you we have grown to consider as friends now), who made this work. I guess we did our bit by making an album people seem to like. I have decided to try and learn to play guitar next. It is only fair!
Music seems to be the best way to collaborate with people in a very real way. The sum of the parts is unique and that really is something!
Amazon Reseller Tricks
I have been looking at what these strange sellers of stuff on Amazon actually do. Unique place and Emporer online are just 2 of many of these people. Look at the image. Or this link
List of Sellers of Hair in a G-String Amazon UK
They advertise our album a cent or two below our price but they stock nothing. When they sell one, they then order it from CDbaby as a wholesaler, direct to the buyer. They end up with a cut of maybe a dollar. Fine BUT.. They say 8 to 14 days delivery because they confirm the sale, take the money and then get around to ordering from CDbaby a few days later. This is fact. I have been watching.
NET RESULT: The Amazon price is forced down, the band get noticably less money and the customer get slow delivery and still pay the same price all but a couple of cents. I post the same day, as most bands would do.
What to do?
Don't offer the 20% discount on CDbaby to wholesalers (CDbaby suggest you do). Offer 10% or none at all.
The resellers don't advertise our albums, so they get paid for nothing and reduce customer service.
Don't drop your Amazon price. The reseller will instantly drop below it again. You drop $1, Reseller loses 10c. They will go as low as you dare and not care.
As for someone who wants a CD (Ours for example), get it from the band unless there is a MUCH cheaper price somewhere.
The games that get played!!
Is this song representative of the whole album? Melodic, simple, memorable, grows on you?
Yes I believe so.
Is this song just like the rest of the album?
Each song or piece, is it's own world. The album is a collection of little worlds.
The result? Music without borders.
Some call it "Prog"
We call it "Hair in a G-String"!
We can officially announce that Hair in G-String has been reviewed and that review will appear in Classic Rock UKs PROG MAG on 7th December 2016
All thanks to Prog expert, Steve Pilkington. We are in your debt Steve!!!
The CDs are spreading round the planet fast. Mums have been waiting for this.
"Why is there no Prog for us any more?" Says Betty from Bournemouth.
"I am sick of Dad Prog and X-Factor" Says Deirdre from Death Valley Springs
"I miss Queen Prog" Says Says Princess Anne of Buck Palace.
"My ears are very slow. I like slow prog" Says Tracy of Southend
The Colin Tench Project have, at last, filled that hole that so many prog mums like having filled.
Never again will you be alone in your G-String. Yes we are scratching that itch you have had for 30 years now.
The CDs are in and even on their way to the really early birds already. It takes quite a bit of work to get to this for any band. Our band is rather a big one!
Colin will talk as little as possible about it with Tony this Saturday and maybe others will join us too.
he album will get played of course!
If there are any free albums knocking around, that will happen only in the chat room of course
You can just listen in instead if you're shy like me.
The reviews and reaction to the album have been so completely positive but have thrown up some questions. Funny ones! We will try and avoid those on the show.
IMPORTANT NUDES FLASH
Why didn't we advertise this? Because we are prog!
We have added a guitar plectrum to be sent with all the orders of CDs that have been placed so far.
There are just a few left. ONLY through bandcamp or email/message me.
I am guessing 10 more only. If we ever make more, they will be a new design, so there will only ever be 100 of these.
That would be 8th at 1am uk and 2am EU http://houseofprog.com/the-chat/
In less than 3 hours, House of Prog will play most of Hair in a G-String and that's not all! Peter Jones, Colin Tench; Gordo bennett. Maybe even Phil Naro will turn up on air to talk about really deep and worrying things. On top of that, there may be a couple of free albums knocking around BUT if you know stuff.
If you know the album, that should be easy.
An example would be this: What the hell is this song below about? Who? How many who's? Get it perfect and that's a CD. Closest but not perfect = Digital!
There will be easier chances too but it may be worth checking the album a bit.
All of the music is now available to listen to or even buy!
Find a song that grabs you fast, then try others. That is how prog works.
