A COFFEE shop barista is positive today will be the day a customer notices he is playing his band’s demo.
Martin Bishop has been playing the demo every day for the last three months without a single person asking what they were listening to.
He said: “One of the good things about working here is that I get to pick the music. So I slip our demo on about once every 90 minutes.
“We’re kind of post-rock, so we don’t use choruses or any of that bollocks. So the demo’s about 45 minutes long.”
He added: “It would be kind of okay if someone asked ‘who’s this?’ because then I would just say ‘oh, yeah this is kind of my band – we’re not on Twitter or any of that shit’.
“It’s not like I’m expecting a record company guy to come in and ask who it is or anything.
“And I would only sign if I had complete creative control.”
