Song & Half Page Advertisement In The Continental Magazine - Issue #21
If you are in a band or run a label that produces surf, instro, garage, rockabilly or exotic music, you can have your song on the next Continental Magazine CD for only $80 per song. In exchange you will receive:
♦ 12 copies of the finished magazine with CD (these retail for $6.95, so if you sell all 12 magazines you will make $83.40).
♦ 1 half page advertisement in the upcoming issue (measuring 5.0 inches wide x 4.0 inches tall)
If you have sent a CD for review in the last 6 months we probably have your CD and can just take a song from it. If not, then you to send a CD or CD-R with the track or tracks you’d like to submit. Payment can be sent with your CD (cash/check/money order), you can send a Paypal payment for $80 to: firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can pay with your credit card through our website.
This is only available for songs that are surf, instro, garage, rockabilly or exotic music. There are probably some songs that are outside these genres that will be acceptable too. However, we don’t want songs that are obviously outside these genres – no techno, modern/alternative rock, modern country, folk, classical, etc.
Issue #21 will be out Spring 2013 and will feature an in-depth interview with legendary Australian surf combo The Atlantics (celebrating their 50th anniversary this year), plus tons of CD and DVD reviews, and much more. The 20+ song CD sampler will include cuts from many great surf, garage, lounge and rockabilly combos!
If you would like to send music for review in The Continental, please get it to us by February 28, 2013. Deadline for ads/songs for the compilation CD is March 31, 2013.
Please send your music/ads/payments to:
