I'm raising funds to pay for the manufacturing costs of a 12" Vinyl Album. This album is part two or follow up to the previously released EX album. EXII has technically been years in the making as I have sourced and saved to buy analogue instruments from the 1970's to create the sound that is on this record. It's been conceived through years of process of elimination and it's been a journey of searching for a particular sound. The album is the journey itself. Once the journey reached it's end, it was simply a case of recoding it live. The album has been recorded analogue without the use of any computers or plug ins.
Don't buy this record if you want a re-hash of what's gone before or you are looking for another Closer You Get or Love And Peace And Sympathy. Buy this album because you want to go on a journey, a journey that is psychedlic, heavy, melodic and deeply rooted in the spirit of 70's Krautrock. Pledge because you want something that sounds different and adventurous and you want to hear sonic build ups beautifully recorded with thick analogue sounds and great grooves and haunting guitars. For me this record, more than any other goes back to the beginnings of six by seven, the long track which grooves out and builds. If you want Eat Junk Become Junk don't pledge!
I'm only releasing this album on vinyl because I've specifically made it to be listened to on vinyl ie. in two halves and not on the move (how most people listen to music now). Through the medium of vinyl, I would like to coerce the listener to take some time out and chop the world out and treat themselves to two sides of rock music designed to help you forget about the illusion of the everyday and the lies and betrayal of all the politics that goes on around us presently.
On the other hand, this is the free West (apparently) so, not being the complete churl, you will also receive the music as downloads with the album so you can immerse yourselves in it freely, however you want and without having to be forced to buy a record player. (According to my research, you're only putting the inevitable off - it seems weird huh?)
Either way, pledge or no pledge, I love you all; just for stopping by and looking. If you do pledge, remember how you are helping to keep a flickering free spirited candle burning. Surely you've always wanted a credit on a record for that? Nows yer chance. ;-)
