Super Best Friends Club is an ecstatic dance band based in London.
We make music to celebrate the big things outside ourselves and the little bits we feel embarrassed about. We are a collection of people who love music and love giving in to the complex beauty of being alive.
Our first album received very nice opinions. Here are some of them.
- "Album of the Month" - Music Tech magazine
- "8/10. A truly distinct first record" - Clash Magazine -
- "A magnificent piece of work" Clive Bell - The Wire (listed as one of their top albums for 2013)
Above you can see a video of a tune from the first record, and then us performing live a couple of months ago. And here you can listen to one of our singles.
Our second album is sounding so delicious I can't believe it! It's going to be so tasty! We'll all be able to dance around and feel fantastic when it's finished, but we are in need of support to make it happen.
- We need to pay for studio time.
- We need to feed our producer, Capitol K (who is a breathtaking wizard of magic and sound).
- We then need to send it off to the masterer who makes it sound beautiful wherever you are,
- then we need to design the artwork and print the CDs.
- and then we need to pay the PR people! It's crazy i know!
Our target amount will not cover all that, but it will be enough for us to finish the record and bring it to your ears, with anything above the target amount serving to make other business steps more feasible. For me this is the most exciting piece of work I've ever been involved with. It's crazy and hilarious and wild. It might not be for people who only listen to Beyonce and Bach, but they have Beyonce and Bach. For all the weirdos and wanderers and spiritual beasts seeking solace in the wilderness, this is going to be such a ride!
We have interest from several organisations with big pockets who might take us on if we get this thing finished, so this little push could just send us on a roller coaster to who-knows-where.
Righteous people, devious shocking people. Glorious complicated people, dip into your pockets and help us get this album made!
Risks and challenges
This is our second album. We know how complex a task it is, but we're doing it. We're waist deep in recordings already. The music is there. The main tasks are simply getting into the studio and making it happen. I have never had such an experience of simple exquisite creativity before. The only setbacks could be if we all go broke. If that happens we'll have to delay a few months while we scrape together some more pennies. The record will come out at the end of the year, rather than in September.
