This is the first .357 Lover album to be listened to on vinyl record.  We've finished the recording and we're very proud of it.  The next step is mastering, which will be done for vinyl from quarter-inch tape.  At this point, we've run out of money.  What we plan to do next in addition to mastering, is making the packaging more than just a container for the record.  In addition to the cover art, there will be a board game that will reference the songs on the album through a journey of time travel.  It will be playable, although just looking at it may suffice in enjoyment.The title, The Purchase of the North Pole, is based on the Jules Verne novel of the same name.  The goal of the game is to reach Danzig in the year 2050 in order to prevent an explosion that will tilt the earth's axis from the poles to the equator.  The traveler will follow an alternate line of time, hitting a 70's American circus, the house of a werewolf in the year 1906, a Rush show in the year 1986, the Columbian Expo in the year 1893 and a mall in north Texas in the year 1995.  There is more that awaits the traveler and the dice will admit him to the next level and the next, the last being the preventing the destruction of the earth's current poles.This album is inspired by the art of 20th Century science fiction magazine covers, the movies of Sergio Leone, the American circus, 19th Century mechanics and girls.There was a lot of passionate arguing and a lot of personal and collective triumphs. We really want to see this record become what we've envisioned.
