- Sep 18, 2013Dreadnaught should get a bonus. Those guys are/were excellent. And, completely friendly. They sold merch on Sunday, I bought their OOP albums. I mentioned to the bass player that I bought their "Chin Music" double CD but it got lost in the PD Sunday cleanup for last year. He gave me a copy free and the band signed it. These guys have as much respect and love as I can give them. Totally thankful for their fans.If you haven't downloaded Bob's recording, you are missing out.-scottFrom: bob eichler <eichler2@...>

Subject: [ProgAndOther] ProgDay popularity by snatches
Since I've done this for the past few years, here's this year's ProgDay "snatch" data. This is the number of times my audience recording for each band was "snatched" (downloaded), which gives some idea of how popular each band was (at least with Dime users). Of course there could be mitigating circumstances, like sound quality of the recording, size of the torrent, etc. And since I put them up in the order they played, the Sunday bands haven't had as long to build up snatches. But the activity on these torrents has pretty much dried up, so here are the current numbers:
Oblivion Sun - 95 times
Miriodor - 83 times
Corima - 81 times
Morglbl - 73 times
Herd of Instinct - 48 times
3rd Degree - 46 times
Thank You Scientist - 45 times
Out of the Beardspace - 44 times
simakDialog - 42 times
Rob Martino - 42 times
Mavara - 41 times
D readnaught - 39 times
Hephystus - 38 times
- In terms of Dime popularity, Oblivion Sun was the clear winner of the weekend.
- How about the "avant" bands Miriodor and Corima coming in a really strong second and third?
- Not surprised Morglbl drew 73 snatches, but I thought their opening band would garner more interest. Instead Hephystus came in dead last.
- Combining musical quality and recording quality, I thought the Dreadnaught torrent was the best one of the whole weekend, yet it finished second to last. Come on Dimers, you're missing a good one!
- simakDialog was a headliner and only drew 42 downloads. That might be partly due to the set being interrupted by weather. Interesting that first act of the weekend and the last one both had the same number of snatches.
- I'm wondering if Herd of Instinct got so many snatches because I compared them to King Crimson in the description?
