“Instant Spam Response” is the name of this week’s episode of The TrainWreckers Podcast, hosted by Uncommon Sense, KidLogic, Slurgeon, Lurky, & Ghostmode. It’s a fun episode, and I would expect nothing less from these crazy Portland Muhfuckaz. They talk about self-promotion, the importance of being original in music, and they do a book report on StrangeFlow’s “Guerilla Blueprints for Creative Passive Income” (available now, on the right scroll bar of Bassadelic.com, or in the ‘store’ tab) and go into detail about my favorite chapter of the book, about greyhacking.
Greyhacking is about finding the grey and uncharted territory in between two different niches, and exploiting it. Basically, carving out your own little area, musically and conceptually, and owning it. One good example is making an “unofficial soundtrack” for a comic book. Who knows, maybe you can get some fans or actual artists/writers of the comic book to take notice, and maybe they’ll mention you in their next comic. That’s just one example to get you started, but there are tons of different ideas in the ‘Guerilla Blueprints’ book to help electronic musicians get going on creating something truly unique, fun, entertaining (and profitable).
Anyway, I’m really fucking stoked that the TrainWreckers Podcast mentioned the site and the book. Those guys rock! Check out their newest episode here or here.
