"Down & Dirty" (and my 1st Taxi Deal!)

Post by dpenn » Fri Dec 19, 2008 6:37 am

And it all happened so quickly! I submitted one song to the "Down and Dirty" dispatch listing below, and a few days later I was notified of the forward. Then - on the first day of the Rally, I checked my email and there it was...the deal offer from the company! I must say that it was a great way to start off the Rally!!!I waited until now to post because I don't count anything as 100% until I have the signed contract in my hands...and it arrived yesterday. Signed, sealed and delivered!!! So - to any prospective TAXI members or doubters - I can honestly say that TAXI is for real. You just have to work your ass off - hit the listings right - and a lil bit of luck never hurt. But it CAN happen! You just can't give up.DaveHere's the tune:http://www.taximusic.com/song.php?song_ ... m=trueDOWN AND DIRTY/HIGH ENERGY HARD ROCK/PUNK SONGS AND INSTRUMENTALS are needed by the Music Supervisor for a few new reality shows by the creators of “Jackass” and “Rob and Big”. While he’ll need a variety of song styles over time, he has an urgent need for really wacky, frantic, adrenaline-pumping, left of center and fun uptempo Rock/Punk/Metal songs. Musically, you can think in the range of Suicidal Tendencies, Social Distortion, System of a Down, Slipknot, Tiger Army, Nekromantix, Nine Inch Nails, Demented Are Go!, etc. Lyrically, there are no limitations but the tone should be off the wall and a little twisted for this one. Instrumentals will be considered as well as songs with vocals. Performances need to be great and the tempo/energy needs to race. Recordings must be at Broadcast Quality, though excellent home recordings should be just fine. We’ll need to be pretty selective here, so make sure to send in your BEST 1-3 songs online or per CD - include lyrics if applicable. All submissions will be screened on a YES/NO BASIS - NO CRITIQUES FROM TAXI - and must be received no later than Noon PST on Thursday, October 30, 2008. TAXI #D081030RK

Getting the Funk pack!!! I already have Vintage Rock, Nashville and Latin Perc, so I thought that would be the next logical step. My wife is away this week - so I'll have all the time in the world to play with my new toy (well, all the time minus that thing called the day job )Dave
