Yet Another Opportunity

O2 last night unveiled its very own unsigned band search - O2 Undiscovered.Aspiring bands are being encouraged to upload tracks to the O2 website or,for the less net savvy, to take a CD into an O2 shop. Tracks will then be reviewed by a team of music types - namely former Mean Fiddler owner VincePower, Times music critic Lisa Verrico, Music Week man Ajax Scott, Xfm presenter Lucio, Polydor Head Of A&R Simon Gavin, and former Elastica guitarist Paul Jonze.

The best bands picked out by that bunch will then receive a range of support and opportunities - including studio and producer time, a digital release of a track, the chance to play at an industry showcase, and a slot at the O2 sponsored Wireless festival.
