This may be early, but nothing like pre-planning and to get you all thinking! With 2009 being a MASSIVE year for Nick with both the Spring Tour and a new album, it is vital to get in live gig reviews and album reviews. This is where YOU can help. If Nick is playing in your area, could you get your local paper interested in doing a preview piece or live review? You could even offer to pitch something yourself. If Critch can be drawn away from his yacht - ! - he could perhaps post here with his experience of how he went about writing an article for his paper when Nick played in St Helens, and any advice on how he went about selling the idea to them and copy length and style. If you already write for a publication or online site and are interested, please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org I already have a number of online zines on my list who are geared up for the album, so it's looking good so far. Don't forget you can also spread the Harpic name around other forums including local community ones in the catchment areas Nick will have a gig in (some have already started to appear!) and of course MSpace, Facebook et al.
