WHAT’S HOT & WHAT’S NOT ON THE ‘TWANG

One of the benefits of using “Box.net” as the hosting provider for the mp3s I post here is I get to see numbers on what all y’all are downloading. A few clear winners have emerged in the year-plus since I started putting up songs for the taking. The winner, by a figurative mile, was that first Bangs/Bangles single we gave to you back in September. Those CHURCH MICE tracks rang some bells as well. Others were not so lucky – I shall refrain from posting their numbers, but fellow CURSE OF THE BIRTHMARK fans, we need to work a little harder to get the word out – apparently posting an entire EP for free isn’t sufficient to rally the base. Here, just for kicks, are the Top 20 most downloaded songs on Detailed Twang:

1. THE BANGS – Getting Out Of Hand (910 downloads)
2. CHURCH MICE – College Psychology On Love (802)
3. THE BANGS – Call On Me (696)
