Thanks to some hard sleuthing I have found some of the best tutorials on the net when it comes to myspace design for your band site.

Whether its hiding sections, adding entirely new sections, modifying them or just generally making the layout look different and obscure, these tutorials can help you…

My band You and What Army has been through a lot lately, so I thought I’d bring you up to speed!

We have recorded our first single and are in talks with organising signing to a new record label, since babycakes has proved notoriously difficult to keep in contact with.

Unfortunately, some of the members won’t be able to see the rewards from this, as the mormons Darren and Joe have decided to part ways with the rest of the band and go forth to their Mormon mission/ Tesco customer service desk callings in life.

We are on the lookout for a new bassist and a new guitarist, so if you are in the midlands (Near Telford) and play guitar/bass and are interested in being in a Rock Rap Rave band that will soon have it’s first single released, then send a message to our myspace or even just comment here!

- Out from Animals
- Silent Descent
- Spectrum 7
- Celldweller

What else?   Let’s get this list off the ground!
