Razor Blazers endeavor to raise $2000 to master and release a 7" vinyl record adorned with handmade artwork by 50 artists. 500 records.
Razor Blazers, a world music sextet, endeavor to raise $2,000 to master and release a vinyl 7" of their songs, 'I'm Sick' & 'Linear Rerun'. In total, the ensemble aim to press 500 records.
All profits from the record will be donated to Kusi Kawsay, an elementary school in the Andes in Peru, which offers 92 children from economically challenged backgrounds an affirming and holistic education. Fredrica and Michael made a short documentary about the school that you can view here:
Unlike most record releases, Razor Blazers have commissioned 50 artists to design 10 covers each. Hence, there will be 500 unique pieces of artwork. Records will be sold for $10/pop and all money will go to Kusi Kawsay. Any additional money raised will be donated to Kusi Kawsay. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Kusi Kawsay. Crazy? Maybe. Possible? Indeed.
The project will culminate with a record release party/exhibition in early 2012 where all of the 500 records will be on display and Razor Blazers will perform.
Please, give. Your ears and eyes will thank you...plus, you will be doing a great service to the children of Pisaq, Peru.
We love you madly,

Stakes is high. For the seventy five dollar package, the donator will receive a copy of the record and get this, a date with the Razor Blazer of your choice! First off, sorry boys and girls but this excludes drummer Luke Crossman. He’s taken. That sucks, right? He’s probably the hottest of the bunch. However, the rest of us are available! That includes vocalist Fredrica Vilardi, guitarists Andrew Murphy and Michael Lucio Sternbach, bassist Adam Vaccarelli and keyboardist Jill Locascio. Please note the following: 1) All dates will only transpire in Monmouth County, New Jersey. However, Michael is willing to accept dates throughout the city of New York. What a champ. 2) Dates do not guarantee any kind of physical and/or emotional intimacy with the donor. 3) Donor must pay for everything on the date. For example, if the donor wants to go out to Applebee’s, he/she must pay for all. That includes drinks and dessert too. Got it? The fact that you’ll be possibly spending an evening with one of these gals/guys, will make your year. Trust me. 4) In some cases, for the safety of all, the Razor Blazer of your choice may be accompanied by security. There are some crazy people out there, ya know?Estimated delivery: Apr 2012
