I've been kicking the Idea around of starting a new blog for years. You may be asking yourself why I would start a new blog when I can't even update the one I have on a regular basis. That's a very valid question....... I guess the only answer I can give you is I'm not sure hahaha. I guess the main reason is to post newer music and to give newer bands exposure. I receive requests all the time from current bands asking if I can review their music and I usually shy away feeling like it doesn't fit in with this blog; the new blog will allow me to do it as well as post records from newer bands I'm into. When I started Shotgun Solution, I never meant for it to have a specific format but over the years it just went in that direction. Neoteric Melodies format will be Post 1990 Punk, Powerpop, Pop, Garage, Hardcore etc. Shotgun Solution's format will be Pre 1990 Punk, Powerpop, Pop, Garage, Hardcore etc. Eventually, I plan on transferring all of the post 1990's post's over to the new site. For now on, any request's having to do with any music post 1990; please direct them to the new blog. Please check it out and let me know what you think, I think it turned out pretty cool.
Shotgun Solution's purpose is sharing my passion for pre 1990's records and underground music. If your a band, label, etc. looking for exposure or if you want to contact me about anything to do with post 1990's music; check out my new blog, Neoteric Melodies. For anything else or if your not into having your record featured here, you can contact me here, enjoy!
Unfortunately, all of my pre 2/19/12 online files were lost during the takedown of Megaupload. I hope to eventually fix all of my broken links in time. But until then, if there's something you really want to hear I’ll consider requests.
