Help fund the Voodoo Organist's 7th album - Organeddon - just in time for Armageddon!
The Voodoo Organist's 7th album, Organeddon, will feature 11 new VO songs, including the lead track "Here Comes Armageddon!" As usual, VO snakes and slithers thru various musical styles including waltzes, mambos, punk jazz, and even krautrock. The result sounds something like Barry Adamson meets LCD Soundsystem with Captain Beefheart at the mic. Or maybe something like Foetus meets Screamin' Jay Hawkins. Organeddon was recorded and mixed at the Voodoo Studio between 12.25.11 - 1.01.12,, and Scott Wexton wrote and performed everything. As a bonus, the cd will include the Voodoo Synthesist album, The Form Destroyer, which is currently only available digitally. New artwork by Aimee Watters will complete the package. It will be a very limited run of 300, and all cds will be hand numbered. These will be real-deal cds - NOT cdrs. Just in time for Armageddon - here comes Organeddon!
In addition to what's already mentioned, you'll get a second new cd, and burned copy of the Screamin' Demons (my band prior to the VO), and i've got a few 7 inches and cassettes from other previous projects. And speaking of cassettes, if my cassette deck still works, i'll even transfer my SAW Music tape to cd (SAW was my experimental solo synth 4 track stuff i did when i was a teenager). So basically the Whole Enchilada is everything that has ever been released that i have been a part of in my entire life.
Frankly, i really don't know. I think my stuff sounds like the Voodoo Organist. But while i was working on mixes, my wife said it kinda sounded like LCD meets Barry, so there you go. Artists that have been in heavy rotation in my stereo in the last year or so include LCD, Fad Gadget, Barry Adamson, Frog Eyes, HEALTH, the Units, Suicide, Can, as well as all time faves like Captain Beefheart, Alien Sex Fiend, the Stranglers, Mort Garson, Sir Julian and Foetus.
Around 600 - 800 to manufacture the cds; 100 for layout; 100 for shipping; a couple hundred for mastering, art, Kickstarter and Amazon takes 10% of the final amount, and shipping all the rewards. As you can see, its a tight budget. If i make anything substantially over the budget, i will invest into other goodies which i will pass on to you - new posters, stickers, shirts, etc.
Yes - when i ride my magic unicorn.
I want in on the $25 deal, but i already have Darwin Dance Hall Days. Can i substitue for another cd?
Sure!---while supplies last. I am sold out of Exotic Demonic Blues, and very very low on The Return of and the Serpent Dance.
Sure! Pledge rewards are minimums - you can choose the $10 reward and pledge as much as you'd like!
As you probably know, i am completely DIY. I've booked the vast majority of the 800 nationwide shows myself; the 200 press articles i have on myself were gotten without the help of a publicist. And i have never had funding from a record label. I have already self-funded 6 cds and 2 tour vans (not to mention gear, repairs, etc etc), and now i'm very very broke. I just don't have the money to self fund another cd - but i do have the tunes; so i thought i'd see if you - my fans and friends - could help fund the cd.
Actually no. Some of these songs were written/being worked on for years now. If you've seen me live in the last couple of years, you may have heard songs like Here Comes Armageddon!, Not Far Behind and You're a Zombie.
1. Here Comes Armageddon!
2. Lying Machine
4. Goddamn That Man
5. Not Far Behind
7. You're a Zombie
8. Mambo Mambo
9. So Long Sucker
10. Raise Your Glass High
Yes!--and i already transferred some of the SAW Music cassette to digital mp3s. So that will be included in the Whole Enchilada.
