A-Communication is the website for the London, UK based rock band "A". In this instance, this is for the website that we built for the promotion of their final album "Teen Dance Ordinance.
We've handled all their websites since their early days, way back in 1995. Of course the first sites were pretty rudimentary, as was the internet, but we've steadily moved it on since then making small improvements along the way.
There were some pretty basic websites made for the first 2 albums, "How Ace Are Buildings" and "Monkey Kong" but we made a Flash based site for their breakthrough album "Hi-fi Serious in 2001. With the delay in release of their final 4th album we stripped it all down to a simple blog-based site.
Since the early days, this website has always been about it's community and the "A" forum has always been the lynchpin for the fans. Since 2001, we've been using a nifty datacapture system for all our downloads and as a result we've built them a massive mailing list.
The band members have now gone their separate ways but we still get involved in some of their individual projects from time to time.
The site is now closed. If you are after "A" merchandise, this site is still selling some stuff: www.toughshed.com
