Bogus Slogan Poster Series

Every band that lasts more than a few years, will finally succumb to a ‘Cash Money Tour.’ Take all the money they can get. Promote the merch until the no one likes the stuff. Squeeze the costs so that the profit margin, if public known, would catch an investor’s interest. Promise everybody that there will be another tour, another record.

Underneath, behind the scenes, most bands will be just lucky enough to get a single done before resentment and hostilities resume. Management buys so much goodwill, the people who cover the music industry get suspicious. A ‘best of…’ album with two new tracks is released, tour booked and interviews with talking points are given.

Bogus Slogan decided to cut straight to the third act. The code name for their cash money tour was “Stand By For Crime.” Only they did not clue in the media. Instead management and band members talked only of the monetary motives. Refusing to call it a farewell tour, the group continually told anyone who would listen to buy more records and t-shirts. It was the group’s time to cash in.

Since the band was late getting the new record done, the tour was delayed to mid July. Industry flacks happily announced the group’s demise. Opening date was on the riverboat, Maybelle’s Bayou Queen docked at Natchez, Mississippi. For the next night’s concert the Maybelle’s cruised down to New Orleans. That’s where the band picked up their private train, heading to East coast for the next set of shows.

When less than a year later, the band released new singles, new album, new tour; the entertainment media got all choked up inside their collective resentment. No one ever reads the fine print…

Bogus Slogan has been rockin’ the world for over  half a century. Springing from the Surf, Psychedelic, Garage of the Southern California 60s, the band has released over 3 dozen albums and toured America & the World extensively.
