We should all e-mail Virgin records and tell them to spend more money promoting the UBs and less on the likes of the Billie, Atomic Kitten and the Spice Girls!!!!!!!!

Excellent Idea SAAD,

I've been on about Virgin lack of promotion of UB40's material for ages. Virgin UK's promotion seems to be limited to posting out a few CD Single promos to various areas. The USA market seems to be getting all the promotional material as there seems to be alot listed on e-bay etc...Are the radio stations not using this material????? Why????
I think Virgin UK needs to get the finger out and help establish UB40 as thee greatest UK Band ever, or is it the case that UB40 has made Virgin all the money they require???

virgin work for ub40
virgin are a joke
we dont need them
let them go and promote the boy bands their 5 to 10 year old audiance will soon be teenagers and due to the lack of talent will go through the trap door look out five a1 sclub7 and the rest oh yes westlife,but then the ubs will be back on the airways to pull virgin out of the s--t

Well all i can say is if virgin are getting paid to do a job then its up to them to promote the ubs.They work at producing the music,doing interviews, touring etc.Where are virgin then sitting in Holland Park enjoying their percetage for work they havnt done.So o,m sorry jari but i dont agree with you.Its ubs job to produce the music virgin job to provide the promtion.

Sorry Jari, got to disagree with you there!!

It IS Virgin's job to promote UB40 properly as they in the BUSINESS of making money and not someones idea of a hobby.

Virgin Records will only make money if they SPEND some money and spend it promoting and marketing the UBs in the right way.

They should use someone who is interested MORE in the pushing the UBs into the public eye than in PROMOTING their own career.

If Virgin had done things properly then 'Guns In The Ghetto' would have done far better all round as it DESERVED to!!!!!!!


So Big Up 'Cover Up'!!!!!!!!

Spend that Dosh Virgin.

Yes saad thats what i said & can you believe this i just finished reading richard bransons autobiography & there is NOT ONE SINGLE WORD about ub40.Lots of other bands get rtecognised such as the stones,spice girls,boy george & mike oldfield(whos is credited for making virgin their first million!).So i agree virgin need to get off their butts & get some promting done instead of sitting back & letting our fav band do all the work.

Don't blame Richard Branston he hasn't owned the record company since 1992 - he's in a pickle over the trains anyway!!!!!

Virgin Records is part of the EMI Group - Nuff said really...........

Just read on the Eden/Virgin site that they've just signed Mariah Carey......... which just goes to prove my point!!!!!!!!

Maybe if the UBs flaunt their wobbly bits like her that Virgin will spend more money promoting the guys.
