Band websites

Post by quasarwutwut »

Hey there people with the best taste I know: my band wants to redesign our website and I was wondering if you guys have any suggestions for other sites to completely rip off (just kidding!*). I'm not talking about super crazy fancy sites (read 'expensive'), but just cool sites that you like the layout of a lot, or the way their navigation works or whatever. I've got some ideas, but I wondered if any of y'all have any particular sites that stand out in your head. For example, I really like The Hives' site.

Or if you have web ideas like "don't bother making a site when you could just use Facebook". Or "why not concentrate on not being a shitty band before you worry about a stupid web site?". You know, things like that.

Zach Galifianakis is really taking this messy look too far.

I don't think Shecks intended to do that. It's that site's way of dealing with hotlinking its images. Classy!

Uh...what did I do? The links are turning up okay for me. Did they link to goatse or something? Sorry, all.

Anyway, back to the thread - I don't wanna derail QWW's quest for a cool site. Speaking of which, is Joshua R. still dinking around with web stuff? He does nice work.

When I tried Shecky's link it worked just fine, so I'm kind of upset that I didn't get to see what apparently made everyone else throw up when they looked at it. And thank you buddeehollee, that donerail site was pretty good, definitely things about it I like.

Do you guys like to be able to stream songs as well as be able to download them? And if so is there a streaming doohickey that you prefer and/or hate?

And Shecks, I didn't know Josh R. did webwork. Do you know Patrick Vociferous LaPenna? He's a friend of Josh's (and all that GR crew) and he did our current site and is hopefully going to be making the new one.
