I rarely receive PR pitches from music publicists that are truly original. Most often they are uninvolved broadcast emails that simply demand coverage on this blog (like Steve noted earlier). But yesterday I got a note from from an L.A. band called Your Horrible Smile that is so original and fun that it made me smile. Here it is verbatim:
Subject: Does it require astonishing style to be reviewed on your page?
We might not have Brandon Flowers impeccable grooming BUT we do have numerous other high "points'" We're Your Horrible Smile out of gritty Downtown LA. Our site at www.yourhorriblesmile.com will shed light on our mission and mantra. And our lack of Flowers-esque cha cha. (But, with our bi-friendly drummer sporting his Melrose chic suits in our new video perhaps we can ignite a spark with he scene?). Check out the site, listen to "Shot at the Title" and tell me you arent reminded of Chris Cornell wailing toward QOTSA's practice space with a penchant for post-grunge boogie.
My response: Killer or not, Melrose chic sure can go a long way.
