I dont live in Boston area. But compared to the local (unsigned) bands where I live here, Machinae is much bigger. That's all i can say.

... who cares? They're as big as we make them, in our minds, and that's fucking huge.

Well, at least for me.

Machinae is bigger than any US band!......talent wise anyway.

Id imagine if they came to the US they wouldnt be that popular because they use more instruments than just bass.

Yeah, I notice that for some people it takes a bit for them to get into MaSu, or at least the people I've introduced the band too...

But of course, after a while, nobody can deny that it's great stuff

I doubt it, people. They've not even started touring much outside of Sweden, it seems. I'm hoping to get them to come to Trondheim, Norway, but that even seems difficult (mainly because those I try to book them at got an upper limit on band costs (for concerts with non-paying concert goers) slightly below what it would take to get MaSu here...(it's really the transport that does that, though))

Yeah it would be great to see over in England. I could get them into my mums hotel free (free food, and beds for all) as well as being able to perform in the function room (capable of holding 130 people i believe). Not like its going to happen, bit it would be fun :D

Post by: Vullcan on May 11, 2005, 11:44:23 pm
Well, i can give 25% discount on food, rooms, and beer for all "friends", aka "fans" :D
Theres only 40-odd rooms though. I could put about 5 up in the flat though, and shove 2 in my houses spare room. That should push us up to 50 lol. umm then maybe another 20 could sleep in the bar area on the couches and then maybe 50 or so on the function room floor :P
Title: Re: Popularity Contest
Post by: Smeagol on May 12, 2005, 12:26:47 am
40 rooms? I think they should be able to hold at least 3 people, they can rotate who stays on the floor...
Title: Re: Popularity Contest
Post by: Vullcan on May 12, 2005, 01:14:45 am
Well actually most of them have double beds (maybe them all) :D
And im sure 2, maybe 3 could fit on the floor in each room :D

Maybe we can get over 200-300 down here after all :D Not that 200-300 fans will be able to make it to England and into this village hehe

Technically yeah. They were the orignal ones (Along with Torp, VisionThing and Wintress, and maybe a few others) so they're the First Age Gods (or FAGS, not intentional ::)). Then along came the so-called Smeagol or Silver age, a period of turmoil. Then you get the Third Age or whatever you wish to call it.

And for some unknown reason we now have the Second age.

You almost managed to stay on topic for twelve or so posts. Way to go team!

X different people have listened to this artist:
113,347 Radiohead (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Radiohead)
76,335 Metallica (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Metallica)
42,517 Evanescence (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Evanescence) (about same as Nightwish)
30,237 In Flames (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/In+Flames)
5,707 Pain of Salvation (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Pain+of+Salvation)
4,456 Machinae Supremacy (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Machinae+Supremacy) (about same as Pain (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Pain), who's been on TV/charts)
1,395 Dia Psalma (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Dia+Psalma)
31 Östblocket (http://www.audioscrobbler.com/music/Östblocket)

So Machinae Supremacy isn't very large, and they're probably over-represented on Audioscrobbler.
