"The Dark Side Of The Turd" will be the final full-length release by The Bassturd.
UPDATE - 3-23 -2011
So, the initial goal of $1000 was met. Thanks so much for your support! Now, I have an even more exciting prospect for everyone! If, by the end of this campaign on April 11th, we can raise $2500, I'm going to be able to release a split 7-inch single with the legendary, and extremely awesome Joe Jack Talcum of The Dead Milkmen! What's even more exciting is that if this goal is met, EVERYONE THAT HAS CONTRIBUTED TO THIS CAMPAIGN will get a copy of the single along with their other gifts!!! That means if you pledged $10 for the full-length cd and the one-of-a-kind song, you'll also get the single.
Note that this will only be able to happen if we can raise $2500 by the end of the campaign! Please help spread the word to everyone you know! Thanks again for your continued support.
For the past 2 years I have been busy working on what will ultimately be the final full-length album by The Bassturd. It will feature over 20 brand new songs.
I am hoping, through this fund-raising campaign, to make $1000 to put toward pressing costs, mastering costs, and album artwork. I will only be able to make this happen with your help.
I am offering some very unique rewards at even the lowest level of support. My goal is to not only raise enough money to put out the new album, but to also give people that support this project something very unique and fun in return.
Please help The Bassturd go out with a bang! I don't have a label, manager, or any other type of corporate backing. Your continued support is the only thing that will allow this project to move forward.
Thanks for looking, and thanks for supporting independent music and art!!!

For a $1000 contribution, you'll get everything mentioned above, as well as my very own MicroKORG-XL synthesizer. I used this synth a LOT in the recording of the new full-length. Many of the patches on the synth were programmed by me. Since I only have one of these, I can only accept one contribution at this level. You'll get tons of stuff for this level of support. I'll even give you hugs and kisses, (optional).
