nooooooooo...............not a chance - you would lose so much money by
trying to TV advertise a single, you'd be out of your mind to try. The
record companies mostly lose money on singles as it is - why else the
headlong rush to make everyone download the things!! - and spending money on
one just to get it to chart would surely mean a visit from the men in the
white coats!!!!
TV advertising the album is a different matter - but then you've got to have
the money - and even a label like SPV would not have THAT sort of money, let
alone Voiceprint - and the companies who DO have the money, wouldn't sign
Catch 22!!
