About this project

£3,302

99

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. ;-)

Thanks CHRIS

    VINYL ALBUM + PHOTOBOOK

    Some of you will know that I studied Photography for 4 years full time and have a degree in Photography. I also worked as a colour hand printer (not digital, but with film and chemicals!!) and have released a book of football stadium photographs called 92 stadiums.

    This book will be a personal insight into my life and ideas and feature 10 large photographs printed onto high quality archival 260gsm pearl photo paper. The pictures will each have a sheet of 120gsm translucent paper interleaving them and the whole thing will be case bound with chrome binding posts.

    Each book will be signed and numbered and only available limited edition through this Kickstarter campaign.

    With the book you will receive an album (with or without your name credited as executive producer - I will email you asking your preference)

    DAY RECORDING IN CHRIS' STUDIO

    Come to my house and spend a day recording with me. Don't worry if you can't play an instrument or you can and think you're shit! Doesn't matter. This album was made in a very specific way and here is your chance to join in the process and co-write a track with me in my studio and learn a thing or two about recording and songwriting.

    The day would start with a bagel and coffee in my dining room around midday and then we would spend at least 4 hours in the studio and I can show you how I made the music and the processes involved. We will also have a laugh and I promise to keep you entertained as I am a well known raconteur and bon-viveur!

    This reward also includes an album with a producer credit on it.

    You can come anytime, any day of your choosing.
