About this project
Hello, and welcome to the Matt Angus Thing's Kickstarter page. As many of you who will visit this page know, it is hard for an independent band to get it's release made, let alone heard. For almost 20 years, both solo and with his bands, Matt Angus has continued to make records, all on his own and with some of the biggest names in the industry. This Kickstarter page is set up to not only help with cost for finishing the overdubs and studio production for the soundtrack of the documentary "Demand Your Independents", but to also help with mastering, the pressing and promotion. $10,000 is our goal, but our hope is to reach much higher than that and help fund some tour support as well.
"Stay", The Matt Angus Thing - Live at Black Potatoe
During the last 6 years Matt has concentrated his efforts on promoting other independents acts and the job that he calls "the best job he has ever had", being a dad. Although they have not had a heavy touring schedule, The Matt Angus Thing has continued to play festivals, choice dates (mostly benefits) and they have been fortunate enough to record with musicians that have not only influenced them, but entire generations. As the production of "Demand Your Independents!" went forward, it was clear that the Matt Angus Thing was the obvious choice for the soundtrack.
Our hope with this project is to raise money to get these recordings to as many music fans as possible. All we are looking for is a fraction of the support for this project that Matt has given to other artists during his 20 years plus touring and promoting independent artists from all over the world. Thank you for your time and thanks for checking us out.
The Matt Angus Thing is proud to present the soundtrack to the documentary on Black Potatoe Records and it's festival called "Demand Your Independents!". The Album is made up primarily of music by The Matt Angus Thing (both live from the Black Potatoe Music Festival and studio tracks), but also includes tracks from the Matt Angus solo project and some tracks from the band Angus.

With hundreds of unreleased live tracks and dozens of unreleased studio tracks, this album will serve as a vehicle to not only support the film, but as both a live album and retrospective of the Matt Angus Thing's first 10 years and the previous 10 years with Matt Angus' other projects.
Your support will get this record mixed, overdubs finished, mastered, printed and promoted. As well as getting most of the unreleased material archived and ready for future projects.
