Barely legal?


I got this e-mail Monday from the Echo & The Bunnymen mailing list.

Now is your chance to get Echo & The Bunnymen back into the top 10 (UK Charts).

If you pre order the new Echo & The Bunnymen single ‘Stormy Weather’ today via the link below you will be adding extra sales toward’s the Bunnymen’s UK chart position.

Even though ‘Stormy Weather’ is not released until September 5th, by placing a pre order today you are not just helping the Bunnymen get back into the top 20 or even top 10 you are putting the Bunnymen back where they belong. At the top.

Don’t panic. If you live in the UK you will still receive ‘Stormy Weather’ via post on the morning of release.

It’s not just UK fans who can have an influence on the UK charts, if you live in the USA, Japan, Brazil even Peru in fact any country in the world you can also pre order ‘Stormy Weather’ as well & receive it via post just a couple of days after the official release date.

You don’t have to just purchase one copy feel free to purchase 10 or 20 & give them as gifts to mates.

So let’s get Echo & The Bunnymen back at the top.

I have two questions:
1) Does this fall within the limits of permitted promotion?
2) Is it any wonder people don’t trust the UK singles charts anymore?

    Surely this minor infraction can be overlooked; after all they’ve been diddled out of their rightful glory on more than one occasion. Good luck to them I say.

    Received the same e-mail…

    Really thought the marketing scheme was beneath a band of such quality — seems a bit desperate — no?!?…they should have opted for a “free” Ipod endorsement (lol)…
