  • HMV到1000獨立、未簽約樂隊:來我們店裏表演


    ◎Doug Putman和HMV宣布,著名的英國音樂零售連鎖店正為發展中藝人和未簽約樂團,敞開店內表演大門。此舉展現HMV恢復和創建音樂零售社區中心的雄心,類似於Putman在加拿大的Sunrise Records。
    ◎HMV音樂主管John Hirst表示,店內表演過去通常被保留用於較知名的演出,但該公司正在超越這項傳統,將在周末邀請嶄露頭角的藝術家到當地的HMV表演,並將其庫存放在貨架上。


    Doug Putman and HMV have announced that the famed UK music retail chain is opening its doors to developing artists and unsigned bands for in-store performances.
    The move is in line with the chain’s ambitions to restore its specialist credentials and create a music retail community hub, similar to Putman’s Sunrise Records in Canada.
    While in the past, in-store performances have typically been reserved for bigger name acts, HMV head of music, John Hirst, recently told Music Week that the company is moving beyond this tired tradition and inviting up-and-coming artists to perform at local HMV locations and have their stock put on the shelves.
    “We’re doing a lot more of that,” says HMV head of music John Hirst. “We used to be really good at that back in the day, but we had to move away from it in the wake of the previous administration. We’re really embracing that again, it’s something Sunrise in Canada do an awful lot of. So if somebody wants to come in, play a few songs and flog 20 CDs we’ve got the ability to do that for them now at the weekends.”
    Weekday activity will reportedly remain reserved for more established acts and album launches, however, Hirts says HMV plans to give the program a “big push” and that while the chain did approximately 250 in-stores last year, its goal is to increase that number to a thousand throughout the year ahead.
