We Want You!

Marionette’s Manifesto is looking for a small group of artists who make Rock (Art, Alternative, Folk, Indie, Blues) music.

Marionette’s Manifesto is looking for a small group of artists who make Rock (Art, Alternative, Folk, Indie, Blues) music.


Are you inspired by bands such as Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, King Crimson, Genesis, Radiohead or Soundgarden?

Then send us some demos today to contact.marionettesmanifesto@gmail.com (please see our demo policy before sending anything). Marionette’s Manifesto is less of a label and more to be a collective of like minded musicians who make similar music. We would be working together to promote each others releases whilst retaining the rights and income from the music we make.


Goals:

  • To Network with like minded independent bands and solo artists and promote each other’s music, helping each other grow our fan base
  • To promote the music of said artists through the website and social media. The artists music is actually distributed by them through an online store (i.e. bandcamp), they retain all the rights and income from the music.
  • To release periodic label compilations compiled and released by the artists themselves. We all choose our favourite songs released on the label to go onto the compilation. This is then shared by each member so they will not only be promoting their own music but also the music of the other artists.

What i am offering to the artists:

  • Each artist will receive a free CD tray inlay to be included in their album download. An optional Cassette J-Card can be created for them also. These would be included in the album downloads as extra so that fans can burn or record their own CD or cassette copy.
  • Free optional mastering of their music.
  • A Facebook group and discord server to congregate with the other artists in, sharing demos of works in progress, finding other label artists to collaborate with on new projects etc…

If you think your music would fit in here or you want to learn more then please drop me an email or message me through the new Facebook page.

I look forward to hearing your music,

Joseph Bagwell

Recluse’s Handbook out Now !!!

My new album “Recluse’s Handbook” is now available for free on Soundcloud and Youtube, and is purchasable for £1 on my Bandcamp.

It’s taken a while to actually get this project finished and i am hoping that you all enjoy the music. Subsequently the album will be available on Spotify, Apple Music and various other online stores from 7th November, and CD copies of the album will eventually be available soon aswell from upcoming gigs.




My debut venture into the world of Rock music. This album is a good introduction to my musical style, drawn from influences including Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues and Jethro Tull to name a few.

So start the record, sit back and enjoy the ride that is “Recluses Handbook”

Check out the event on Facebook

Opening artist Christelle has an EP you should check out from April, thanks to the support of fans, friends, family and through crowdfunding. You can purchase the EP from iTunes here.

Funkzilla have also been busy writing with some new songs being added to the library, you can here their stuff on their Soundcloud page.


I just had to get my baby niece as she started crying. Now i have here sitting listening to Funkzilla’s Pre Jam which is awesome. Seriously check these guys out.

Anyway…

I have a few recording projects lined up. First being with Phantom of Eden. I have a few original songs for Phantom which not only we will play at the next gig but also hope to record as an EP or album. Also i hope to record my solo stuff soon as well!

In other new i have plans to start doing YouTube videos. I have been planning to re try my music review series Sound Scope of which three original episodes were recorded and were very shit. Thus i am re inventing it and hopefully it will be of interest to anyone. i may also plan some other videos to offer a better range of content.


 

Andy and the Echoes @ Bar 42

i’ve just run out of things to say really. Before summer the gigs were part of my college assignment and so i needed to evaluate them but don’t need to so here are the photos.

Rock for Research [Part 1]: Cascades @ Bar 42


Tuesday may not be the best night for a gig at Bar 42. Tonight was quite dead for the most part though we did make a nice £35 on the door in support of cancer research. I feel that the main problem with this one was the promotional aspect of the gig.

One major item i forgot to do at the beginning was contact Cancer Research and notify them to the fact that i was hosting two fundraising gigs for their charity. This is something that should have been done straight from the start when i decided on the charity to raise money for as they may have seen this and thought “hey, this guy is hosting a couple of gigs to raise money for our charity, may be in our interest to give some sort of coverage to boost the event”. Another floor was the fact that it was on Tuesday night which after talking to Mark Knowles, owner of Bar 42, i discovered that actually they don’t usually host gigs on a Tuesday and that is something i really should have looked into was the best dates where he usually gets the most customers.
Another thing to address was my set… actually let’s not talk about that

Lineup:


 

Rock for Research!!!

I am pleased to announce two charity gigs coming up in June on 7th and 14th at Bar 42. Both gigs will be in support of Cancer Research. The first evening will feature music from myself and our own Luke Amor along with some other soft rock and folk/acoustic acts. The second will feature music from our Red Shores along with other metal type bands. More info coming soon!!!

Andy and the Echoes @ The Smugglers Return


This has probably been the most interesting gig to say the least…

We started out by going to college to grab the pa equipment required for the gig, we managed to get everything together quickly and also all the stuff to the venue in one trip with two cars. Once we had arrived at the venue we unpacked the stuff into the stage area and began setting up. Originally my sound guy had planned to get there at 7 so i was too sound check the bands and ring the system out.

We encountered our first problem when we realized the technicians had forgotten a few bits from our list which we should have checked before heading over to the venue, this unfortunately was too late to get the bits from college as the music block was closed. We got round it however by cutting certain things out of the pa such as the multi fx lexicon unit and compressor. The only effects unit we used in the end was the graphic EQ for fold back and so did not need the effects rack they lent us for the gig.

Our second problem was that the headline band Andy and the Echoes who were providing the kit for the gig were unable to arrive for 4:30 setup due to still being at work which is understandable. We got around this by setting up their kit and bass quickly and then beginning sound checks immediately. I had a problem sound checking Andy and the Echoes and The Red Smoke as i am not the best tech however had some help from student teacher Neil Allison who knew a few things about sound tech and got me through the first two. After this my sound technician turned up and sound checked Ellie and her backing band as she was first on.

As the night went on things seemed to be going smoothly, the sound technician didn’t encounter any problems he could not fix. I feel though that maybe the mix of artists wasn’t quite right for the venue though, maybe myself and Andy and the Echoes would work but Ellie’s set and The Red Smoke i feel were out of place somewhat. Also we could have either started slightly later or maybe had an extra artist as the gig ended a bit early i feel, even though we ran late with sound check.

I think the main problems i faced with this gig were a lack of promotion which is one of my biggest flaws i must work on certainly. Maybe by contacting loads of music magazines, local blogs and such within the area to get some sort of press coverage for gigs.
Despite these problems it was still an enjoyable night, all the bands were good and people did seem to enjoy the music they heard. One thing that the landlady at Smugglers suggested is that friday is not the best day to have a gig, especially one starting with covers of classic rock and heavy metal music, this is because people coming back from work won’t want to hear ace of spades as soon as they get to the pub. This is some good advice which i will take into account for future events in pub type environments.
