1. be fuzzy/lo-fi, even if you record yourself on computer you MUST make it sound like it was recorded on an old cassette.

2. release a cassette.

3. when naming your band/album/song, use words like: beach, surf, sun, tropical and so on.

4. your album cover should be a blurry picture, vaguely nostalgic, preferably actually taken with a polaroid or some kind of holga type thing.

*being featured on some blogs.

**so what? exactly!

That sounds like it would have worked any time in the last 30 years. It's timeless advice. Gazzer and the surf sun tropics are go!

get a drummer!
haha that's for the rock rock band. There's already a drummer in our punk rock band.

I think Gazzy has that trademarked.

Suppose we'll just have to stick with the indie rock steps and see how it goes. We've got step one sorted anyways.
