WAS (NOT WAS) – THE NEW ALBUM IS OUT

Posted in Don Was, Wasmopolitan Cavalcade of Recorded Music with tags , , on April 8, 2008 by Rob Barnett

 

Boo! is the brand new album from Was (Not Was).

Quit working for a second & picture this: 

You’re walking down a dark road – there’s a thumping sound ahead somewhere in the distance – you shuffle a little bit faster towards the sound. A light shines in the night to guide the way.

You’re closer – you hear music playing louder. You see a church with a long name that doesn’t sound like it belongs to any particular denomination: “The House of the Happy Redemption”  

Open the door & the preacher’s voice is booming : “If life has left you a little too filled with fear, worry, loneliness, forgetfullness, and despair…..then stand up and let the music back in through the bottom of your feet to the top of your aching head.”

Remember how you used to feel before you had hard times invade your brain? Go get some musical medicine & a long tall glass of some “Crazy Water.”

We’re honored that Don Was decided to reimagine music distribution on My Damn Channel. Checkout the Wasmopolitan Cavalcade of Recorded Music – where Don has produced over 50 NEW tracks and videos – all there for you – for free.

You can tell by the title I’m just not getting enough 07/08 sleep. Pathetic. But heading to ‘church’ tonight for kickoff of the next leg of the Springsteen tour. That & today’s 2 new videos will keep me vertical.

Every Thursday Don Was presents NEW music recorded & produced for you free of charge. Grab the MP3’s & steal the music videos with thanks to a generous grant from our friends at LINCOLN.

Today’s new music premiere is just what the doctor ordered – reggae rock from the band COMMON SENSE. Their first My Damn Channel video is called “STRANGE ONE.”

The band is based in a very important town for our new media mission – LAGUNA BEACH, CA. It’s homebase for Okapi Ventures where Marc Averitt is a lead backer & board member at My Damn Channel. Surf’s most definitely UP. 

If comedy’s your Thursday calling – head to one of newest channels: CARNIVAL of STUFF. Steve Kerper & the mighty men at Asterisk present our first animated series: “INVASION” – episode 3 – SQUIRRELS JUST WANNA HAVE FUN:

WHAT’S UNDER THAT HAT?

Posted in Big Fat Brain, Don Was, Wasmopolitan Cavalcade of Recorded Music on December 6, 2007 by Rob Barnett

Matt & Troy at Big Fat Brain preach a pretty good rule for My Damn Channel: Show Beats Tell. The best way to experience our web experience is to watch it – not to listen to us yak about it. Their rule makes blogging a helluva lot easier and more concise.

But it’s Thursday – and every Thursday – Don Was presents brand new music he produces and films exclusively for My Damn Channel.

Don Was

Don calls our channel: The Wasmopolitan Cavalcade of Recorded Music. We set out on a simple mission together: To rewrite all the broken old rules of the music business. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly get the hell out of the way – and give artists respect, freedom, mass distribution and cash. If you go to Don’s site this afternoon – or spend more time there tonight – or this weekend – you’ll have a rare chance to discover new music made from the heart – with ZERO corporate interference.

Today, Don debuts more music from his recent trip to his native soil – with sound and vision emanating from Detroit, Michigan.

You can also checkout all the new music from Don’s roadtrip to Nashville. These digital albums come with LINER NOTES too.

Last point: All our music is FREE to download – thanks to the hearts & wallets of our friends at Lincoln and from our friends at ASCAP.
