Ian McCulloch Online Today

Ever wanted to find out how to make it in the music industry?

Well, today's your chance as Echo & The Bunnymen front-man Ian McCulloch will be hosting a live webchat in the quest to help bands release music.

As previously reported on Uncut.co.uk, McCulloch is searching for music’s next big thing as part of a new unsigned bands competition, Pringlesunsung, along with ex-Island Records Managing Director Marc Marot, Radio 2 contributor Paul Sexton and award-winning producers Bacon & Quarmby.

McCulloch says his aim is “to encourage diversity in music, and campaigns like this are exactly the sort of thing that could uncover the next big thing in the music world."

To enter Pringlesunsung, all bands have to do is post a song online along with a few details – so everyone can listen and rate what they hear.

The winners of the search campaign will get the chance to record a demo produced by Bacon & Quarmby as well as receive important management advice.

The winning artists will potentially release a download single, too.

Join Ian McCulloch for a special live webchat at 2pm today (November 24) when he will dispense advice on how to get a foot in the musical door and dole out as many tips on how avoid pitfalls as possible!
