It’s been 4 weeks since we posted our new video on YouTube. Up til now Rewound has received over 15,000 views on our channel, 3,000 more on Blank TV, and if we add the views of the Hungarian version, it totals over 20,000 views. The video will also be included in the roster of German online TV station tape.tv.
Rewound was chosen as video of the day by purerawk.com, Yell Magazine published a nice review about it, and dyingscene.com, fortheloveofpunk.com and a lot of cool music blogs also shared the news. Thanks for everyone who helped us so far!
After 16 DIY videos, our first official music video is out now. It’s for the title song of our recent free EP, Rewound and its Hungarian version, Retro. The video was created by the incredibly talented Orbán brothers, and features Flóra, the dangerously pretty vintage pin-up girl, and Little Heart Jill, the most intelligent pug since Frank from Men in Black. (Special thanks to our pug expert, Zsuzsa from Diamondgloss kennel!)
And now the videos – we recommend watching them in HD (click the cogwheel at the bottom of the video to select the resolution):
Talking Music is an English language radio show on Budapest’s Radio Q. This week’s show will feature Rocco representing Bankrupt. The show’s theme will be revolutionary music. You can listen to it on the radio’s website (or FM99.5 in Budapest) this Thursday from 21:00 CET (GMT+1:00) or this Saturday from 15:00 CET.
On 30 March all Facebook pages will be automatically converted to the new Timeline design. As a result, default landing pages, like the one we’re using to let new fans download the Rewound EP for free, will be gone. We still have to figure out how to rearrange the page, as the change will be a lot more radical than last year’s Facebook page upgrade, but the free download will still be available here on the website.
Of course, not everyone likes Timeline, but there is no way to disable or remove Timeline once you’ve upgraded. (And you’ll be forced to do so soon.) There is a workaround though, in case you want to view Timeline pages with the old design. The FB Purity plugin offers to disguise your browser as IE7, so that Facebook pages will fall back to the old design. But it’s not likely that this hack will continue to work for very long, so better get used to Timeline soon!
