Project for 100th Free Album from WM Recordings!

WM Recordings is about to reach their 100th free album, and YOU are invited to be a part of it! Here's info directly from WM Recordings:

Submit your cover version for our 100th free album!

The release of the 100th free album download on our label is rapidly approaching. We have lots of activities coming up to celebrate this milestone. One of the projects surrounding our 100th free album will be the release of an album of cover version of tracks from the WM Recordings catalog.

Pick your favorite WM Recordings track from www.wmrecordings.com and... cover it!

We'll post submission guidelines on our site very soon, but you're already invited to start submitting your cover versions.

The rules are simple: the track(s) must have been released by WM Recordings and your version should not be longer than 5 minutes. Also keep in mind that a remix does not count as a cover version. Mail info @ wmrecordings.com if you have any questions or if you have more great ideas to celebrate our 100th free album!

To inspire you to create a cover for WM Recordings, here are some covers collections.

A diagnosed schizophrenic, he gained a sizeable cult following in the 1990s after releasing several hundred songs of unique but simple music, with emphasis on his humorous, bizarre, and very obscene lyrics.
