It's been a while since the last post, but I've spent quite a bit of time gathering ideas about what Prunkel requires in order to reach the public. I received plenty of input from just about everyone I know who listens to music, had plenty of discussions, and listened to more music than my now bleeding ears should have.
Nevertheless, I had a great time compiling ideas. Here's the first thing Prunkel needs:
An already existing fanbase.
Sounds strange doesn't it? How can something that seemingly ceases to exist have an already existing fanbase? Well, I've come to the conclusion that the genre we're calling Prunkel already has a fanbase. People who enjoy Progressive, Punk and Metal will (or should?) enjoy Prunkel. Sure, there will be those metal heads or punks out there who will refuse to listen to progressive rock. There will be the proggies who can't stand metal, and there will be punks who can't stand anything besides punk. Such is life. But there will always be genuine music lovers, and they're (we're) out there right now waiting for something new.
Due to the fact that Progressive, Metal, and Punk already have immense fanbases, logic would dictate... as it usualy does... that inside those 3 genres exists another, and most likely more than just one. I think it's safe to say that Prunkel is hidden away in there somewhere. Now how do we extract it from our imagination, talent and creativity? That brings us to the next weapon from our arsenal of ideas.
We'll get to this one tomorrow.
