Re: Detonator.tv


This is the "heavy rock" channel that we're hoping to launch in the next couple of months. At this stage we are looking for further investors to top up the £20,000 fund we currently have. Not sure if any of your friends are independently wealthy and might be willing to invest some money. We're looking for another £40,000 from various sources. If you do think of anyone, mention it to them and let me know, then I'll get our investor relations man to discuss it with them.

Anyone spring to mind?


The man behind the music runs the record label Demolition Records. They have the Quireboys and others on their books.

I have just been on a very dull course. I tried to start a row with the instructor but resorted to doodling instead.

Hmm sounds like something my other half would really enjoy. If it does get up and running give us a shout as he may have at least one customer.

I might watch it, if it played plenty of "classic" (read real rock/metal) and The Darkness. And it was on NTL and didn't require an extra subscription charge, of course.

It's a broadand channel - on the net.

That would be given away by the .tv on the end - d'oh! Must be these fresh contacts; I half read your last sentence as you had a doodling contest with your rowing instructor!

Slightly unhelpful I expect...

Dunno if it any use but this from a colleague....

1) How come its costing 60'000, its only an internet station and presumably the lable already has the rights to the music?
2)Why is there no Bank funding since loans are usually agreed on a fifty fifty basis.
3) There are already Heavy rock specific channels and Magazines. How is this going to compete?
4) By heavy rock, what does he specifically mean?
5) Which bands etc are already on board with the project.
6) Is it infact just a way of publicising Demolition records?

Yup I do know independently wealthy people... They said they may be interested, however they are not interested in talking to anyone who claims to be in 'investor relations' because , and I quote " talking to those people is a good way to rapidly become unwealthy". So if you can get a text business plan to me Ill give it to them and they'll peruse it on their own account.

Oh and he'll need to answer the three questions above...

Other than that they said it was unlikely as it was a .tv station and not therefore a safe investment.

Re: Slightly unhelpful I expect...

All look like they might be good points and questions :-)

Pass an email address to me and I'll pass it on.
