Everyone knows that success has more to do with your promotional budget than the goodness of your pop, but putting an actual price on fame is tricky. Unless you’ve got an actual price list. Like this one. This is just for “presenting” records to shops – as you can see, we’d still have needed to guarantee airplay and media coverage. And, no, we didn’t sign up. We didn’t even use press agents – well, we did once, but it didn’t do much good, so we went back to our old system of posting records to journalists with notes telling them to fuck off. Oh, and we briefly used a gig agent, but they booked Brighter for a Young Farmers hop at an agricultural college near Ipswich at which the promoter encouragingly told the band beforehand it “could go either way”, so we stopped doing that too.
