MySpace Snatches Established Url From Indie Rock Band "Bones" In Favor Of Fox Television Show "Bones"

Bookmark and Share

With no advance notice or explanation, Baton Rouge indie rockers Bones have lost their long-established Myspace URL (www.myspace.com/bones) to the FOX Television show of the same name. Bones, the band, has used www.myspace.com/bones for nearly 2 years, racking up close to 20,000 profile views, over 21,000 song plays and over 2100 Myspace friends.
 
"Losing our URL was a complete surprise to us," said Michael Miller (upright/electric bass, vox). "We logged on one day and found David Boreantz staring back at us. It sucks because we've used that URL for almost 2 years to build our band name and fan base, and it's on all of our product and posters. We're as indie as it gets and can't afford to reprint everything."
 
"The crazy thing is, once you pick your Myspace URL you are warned repeatedly by Mypace that you can never change it," said Scott Campbell (drums/synth bass/graphic designer). "I guess someone bigger came along and wanted the URL we've been promoting for 2 years. No one from Myspace will get back to us about how this could have happened, and they've now stuck us with www.myspace.com/7483383 which we can not change."
 
Bones hits the road tomorrow for the East Coast leg of its Disconnected tour, in support of their self-released CD which is available via Insound.com, BonesTheBand.com and their newly dubbed Myspace page - www.myspace.com/7483383.
 
Bones was born of a lie in 2002 when Michael Miller wrote "some weird songs" and sang them to his new neighbor, Scott Campbell. "He looked just like this drummer I knew, so I said 'You still playing drums?' He said yes but he was lying and did not have any drums. Luckily our neighbor had a set, which Scott still plays today."

Miller writes low-life hymns for the casual sinner, lyrical and frank, about down and out people, sex, and the devil. "I have a 16-years-old's fascination with words," Miller says of his sometimes shocking lyrics. "I'm interested in saying something and getting your attention and playing with it. It's designed to make you crack a smile."

When not playing in Bones, Miller and Campbell tour in support of the legendary New Orleans Preservation Hall Jazz Band with the alternative cabaret New Orleans Bingo! Show (which was recently featured in a Jane Magazine pictorial).
