To Whom It May Concern:
With all our writers having moved on to bigger and better things (and in one case moved to another country) it seems the right time to call an end to Slutty Fringe.
There’ll be no over-thought dissection of the current state of MP3 blogging, nor any grand justification of this decision – just a thank you to all the artists who sent us their music (and their favourite haircuts) and played at our parties, all the people that read our words and partied with us and all the PR companies who put up with our acerbic responses to their enquiries over the six years the site was active.
We’d also like to specially thank Emma, our designer, whose redesign of the site, posters, flyers and record sleeves consistently made us look more professional than we ever were.
Slutty Fringe will remain free to browse as a footnote in the ongoing battle of wits between the internet and the music industry, but the email for submissions will be closed which is probably a good thing as it’s currently creaking under the weight of some 25,000 unread messages.
You can find out what we’re all up to here…
