Sound Investment?

Date 17 Sep 2006

Fans of a UK Indie band don’t just hope their idols do well to see them on MTV – they also want a return on their investment. BBC News Online reports that Leeds-based Four Day Hombre asked fans to help them fund the music by buying shares, after several record label deals fell through. Ben Denison, a 28-year-old IT manager from Leeds, is one such fan, putting £2,400 into Four Day Hombre. "I thought it was an opportunity I couldn't really miss," he says. "I had to get it past the girlfriend first - it was a new kitchen or a share in an indie record label." Four Day Hombre have been described as sounding ‘between Coldplay and Radiohead.’
