MySpace clutter, begone!

by Cosmo Lee

MySpace band pages have become practically unusable. Now bands are sticking huge images at the top and Twitter feeds, videos, widgets, flashing banners, instrument endorsement logos (seriously, who cares about those?), and other nonsense everywhere else. I’ll never like a band for its MySpace design, but I’ll dislike a band for it.

Here’s a way to cut through the clutter.

Go to this page. (Thanks to reader shep for the tip.) Find the “Music-Only” button halfway down. Bookmark that link (hint: use right click). Then, when you open a band’s MySpace, click on that bookmark while the page loads. It will eliminate the clutter, leaving the only component that matters: the music player.

Try it. Life will be better. I’ve been using it, and my life has been better. Now “Music-Only” is at the top of my bookmarks.

While you’re at it, check out The Endless Blockade. We reviewed them here. Sweet live footage of them from last weekend is here. They have a split with Bastard Noise out here, and a split with Unearthly Trance forthcoming. One of them keeps a blog here.
