Absorb the knowledge. (seriously, ffs).

Luke Penman is a man of many things in the local SA music scene. From previous work on Play Pause Play, helping hand at Music SA and host on Radio Adelaide, he kinda knows a thing or two. But mostly we just want to address how hilarious his social media game is and how frustrating being in media can get trying to work with bands. Without further ado:
12. Why would you even..
It's cool if you only have a Facey B page, and all the links we need are there. We have enough to do without the loop around. Bonus Tip: Just make a proper website.
11. Don't forget about community radio!
Also, ease of access for all things - all the time. We actually really want to share your music around, but half the time we can't get our hands on it (and it make us want to MURDER YOU. Kinda).
10. Again, eaaaaaaseeeee.
9. Be as helpful and nice as possible.
Thanks + smiley face = ily.
8. You should just know.
7. F.... F..... S......
6. Branding is great, but so is being able to read.
5. Leave your inner 13yo at home.
email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, ASL etc etc.. nope.
4 . Don't be a wanker. *instant delete*
3. If you don't take your band seriously, then why the fuck would anyone else?
There is no excuse this modern day-in-age for a shitty band photo. YOU WILL NEED IT. GET ONE.
