Young Blood Merch - New business launch!

THREE ambitious students are launching an online merchandise firm this month.
The business will be aimed at unsigned bands, or those on independent record labels.
The site will not only link indie bands cartel together for customers to view in one destination, it will also have a bio and music sample from every band signed up.
Co-founder of the company, and student at the University of Gloucestershire Aidan Rossiter, 21, said; “There are three of us and we are all in a band called Ciaro, through which we realised the difficulties of selling merchandise from gig to gig and on such sites as Myspace. The idea was to link all of us bands together, both to get exposure for the bands and to allow the customer to come across similar music that might interest them.”
Ashley Baker, 21, and Ben Crutch, 22, both students in Redditch will be running the site alongside Aidan.
The three are also in the process of setting up their own cartel to be able to ship the merchandise from their location. As well as the main site, there will also be a Facebook and Myspace profile.
“The company currently has many bands signed up but until contracts are drawn up and finalised I unfortunately can’t say who,” Aidan added. 
The official launch party will be held at Subtone on 22 April. Doors open at 9pm with free entry all night.
