Getting Popular

…is difficult. I was listening to my iPod Mini two nights ago in Squaw Valley and the album that was playing was Caesars‘ “Paper Tigers”. I love every single song from that album, and that’s a feat because I am mostly a “singles” person rather than an “albums” person. Overall, it’s a great album. And yet, they are not well known, even after Apple used their song for one of their iPod ads. Caesars tried to make it big in USA but they failed. They severed their ties with their label and PR person who were responsible for them here, their main web site went dead and they returned to Sweden.

And that made me think. If Caesars with label support and good-enough music couldn’t make it big, what does drive all these small Indie bands out there that live with the dream?

Samples of Caesar’s music at YouTube, let me know what you think of their music.

They are good. I saw them on YouTube last night performing on… Tower Records in LA, like if they were a local garage band in need for 20 bucks. That’s what they had to do when they came over to US, while they are already known in other parts of the world and let’s face it, they have amazing songs. Sucked big time seeing them like this, no wonder they left the American dream.

Aahhh! Thanks, I’ve heard “jerk it out’ somewhere and I liked it a lot, now I know their name.

Did the Arctic Monkey’s iPod advert ever get a lot of play in the states? I know Jobs played it at one of the conferences and mentioned them by name, just don’t know if it made it into the mainstream.
