Rock Control is encouraging the global public to launch and manage a band from scratch, from deciding who they want to be in the final line-up, deciding the look and feel of the band and choosing which media opportunities they want to take.
Ultimately, one song will be created and simultaneously released into every chart around the world with the intention of gaining that Global number one slot. It aims to be the ultimate rock and roll experience putting the public in control of a rock band hell bent on global domination.
Rock Control was part of the first round of The Difference Engine, incubator/accelerator programme for digital start ups.
My notes: These guys are fun. Figures at six weeks of launch:– 5000 band managers signed up– 330 auditions– across 33 countriesFacebook page:
