To Capitol Records – Promote The Band HURT

After speaking with J.Loren and asking nakedEric Readers for questions to present in an interview, I received little response.  My goal, the same as J’s, is to speak to the, in the words of J.Loren, “Small but passionate group of HURT fans”.  I began a study of the band’s influence and retrieved some interesting results.

I reached out to approximately 1,200 visitors to nakedEric and asked if they had heard of the band HURT.  As expected, most had not.  427 people responded to my inquiry and 351 did not know the band (but were interested in hearing their music).  The remainder had heard of HURT and, what I find most interesting, ALL LOVED THE BAND PASSIONATELY.  Thus, without any exception, fans of nakedEric who had heard of HURT LOVED THE BAND!  100% of the time.  This is why I am now calling out to all who participated in this study and to all other HURT fans to loudly demand that Capitol Records put a “ten ton brick” of promotional force behind exposing more people to HURT.  What my little study shows is that, if they hear it, they will like it … with passion.

It will begin here as I ask all other fans and newbies to the band to increase the volume on this issue.  Make a blog post or write a letter to a magazine.  Write reviews on iTunes or YouTube.  Let’s make our own promotional powerhouse that wil, in turn, inspire Capitol to follow suit.  We need to battle the pop tart deluge with the best rock band out there.  I want the world to HURT.

It is the only way we can change music for the better…





Thank You To J. Loren From HURT

If you are blind or related to Paris Hilton, you may be rich, but certainly have not the ability to recall that I am a big fan of HURT and their new album. I was poking around for some more morsels about the foursome when I learned about how trying the recording process was for the album “Vol. 2”. If you have not, please check out their extremely cool website. HURT Website – Click Here, Piggies!

This makes it all the more amazing of him to have reached out and offered some of his time to NakedEric for an interview for this blog! Whilst we work on the particulars, please stay tuned (no pun intended) and support the band. I mean, what other band would answer a “shot in the dark” invitation for an interview from a guy named NakedEric? HURT does this for the music, the catharsis of performance, and for the fans. J.Loren’s response is proof that this is more than just rockstar bulldoody.

American Idol (Idle Americans) has NOT killed ALL of the real music! HURT is fun! YAY!


NakedEric Album Review – HURT “Vol. 2”

When you sit down, stand up, or hover and begin to ponder putting words together to express your feelings regarding an album that nips you in places that have no name, it often amounts to quite a daunting task. HURT is the most underrated and unknown great band out right now. That is a fact. Anyone who listens to their previous effort, cleverly named, “Vol. 1” immediately sees this omission of HURT in the gilded halls of super de duper bands of the day. Day! Vol. 2 is not only a “go hump yourself” to the Sophomore Jinx, it is one of the best albums I have heard in ten years (at least). Go to iTunes now and buy it. Go to Best Buy now and Best Buy it. It has a shiny white cover. Ok. Now, as you listen to Sunners Lost and Ten Ton Brick, recall what I am saying here. Come back and comment. Somewhere say, hey nakedE you were right! Why? Well, I am going to campaign actively for an interivew whith the gents from HURT. I want to find out how they pull this together so perfectly and what they are going to do when they inevitaby explode into superstsrdom. So, HURT, if you are reading – contact me so we can plaster this blog with HURTAmerica. I’ll even write the interview clothed in hopes that we can sheathe my pecker. Well, not we, I would never ask HURT to sheathe my penis. I would organize a charitsble event where they could play. I have done this before with a ….

OH MY. I am so tired I am falling asleep at the keyboard here. I have to continue this later, aaeaekkkk

Buy HURT “Vol. 2” and then surf over here. by then we can both go on nd on not capitalizing “By” and leaving the “a” out of “and”.

HURT rhymes with BURT.

HURT Vol.2  = MasterpieceHURT Vol.2  = Masterpiece
