OK, have you been taking notes? Here’s a summary: write a great song, record it well, put it on MySpace, send it to Unearthed, then wait for the world to come to you. And get out of Melbourne, at least for a while. Simple, no? The reality, of course, is that you could do all this and get nowhere. Your chances of achieving pop superstardom and worldwide adulation are still one in a million, just as they’ve always been. It’s just that the way it happens is changing quickly.
