MUSICBLITZ INKS PRODUCTION AND A&R DEAL WITH INCENDIARY MC5 GUITARIST & SONGWRITER WAYNE KRAMER

Kramer Brings MUSICBLITZ Exclusive New Singles from Dee Dee Ramone, Pere Ubu, Stan Ridgway (Wall of Voodoo) and Mother Superior (Rollins Band)

Los Angeles, CA-April 4, 2000- MUSICBLITZ, a consumer-oriented music company that is redefining the relationships between consumers, artists and record labels, today announced it has signed a production and A&R deal with former MC5 guitarist Wayne Kramer. Under this arrangement, Kramer will target and recruit established and up-and-coming artists to record new singles for MUSICBLITZ. He will also work with select MUSICBLITZ artists in the recording studio producing their songs.

Kramer has already secured several respected artists to record new material for MUSICBLITZ. Among these are Dee Dee Ramone and Pere Ubu. Besides Ramone and Pere Ubu, Kramer has also produced MUSICBLITZ exclusives from Mother Superior (Rollins band), Chris Spedding (guitar virtuoso and respected producer who worked on the original Sex Pistols demos), Stan Ridgway (Wall of Voodoo) and The Streetwalking Cheetahs. Additionally, Kramer has recorded a new song, entitled "Crawling Outta the Jungle," which is currently available for free download on MUSICBLITZ's Web site, http://www.musicblitz.com.

"MUSICBLITZ's top priorities are to give music fans the best free music that they can't find anywhere else and to empower artists to create new music without the constraints of a traditional recording contract," stated Mike Mena, vice president of artist development at MUSICBLITZ. "Wayne is an artist of uncompromising integrity who is well respected in the music community. Our relationship with him adds a tremendous amount of muscle behind MUSICBLITZ's efforts to attract quality musicians and record their new songs."

"MUSICBLITZ is taking a completely different approach to connecting music fans and artists," commented Kramer. "Not only do they compensate the artists for downloads, they also provide a budget and resources for the songs to be created. MUSICBLITZ has opened a door for artists who might not have otherwise gotten a chance to be heard in this merger-mad industry climate. MUSICBLITZ also provides a great service to music fans by letting them download these exclusive tracks for free."
