"MULTITUDES"!

The new album by HELLBLINKI is finished. (mostly)
(hear more bits and pieces on SOUNDCLOUD)
https://soundcloud.com/hellblinki/sets/snatches

I need money to make it real... manufacture CDs and vinyl LPs, pay for final mixing and mastering... This only happens if we reach the goal of $7000

Twelve songs of dazzling splendor... Tales of love, war, and dangerous times, can all be yours for ONE DOLLAR, or more! This deal will only be available during the Kickstarter... for a minimum $5 pledge you also get a second digital album, a collection of songs from most of the GUEST ARTISTS who perform on the record... 
UNWOMAN, Regeana of THE CHANGELINGS, Kris from THE JUAN PROPHET ORGANIZATION, Valerie Meiss (who you know from Hellblinki!) and Ian Moore are MISS MOUSIE AND THE RIGAMAROLE, Ian is also MOOLAH TEMPLE, Davis Petterson of THE GHOSTS PROJECT, THE VOODOO ORGANIST, TOCCATA NOSFERATU, BILLIE VACATION, Jon Paul Hess, who has toured with Hellblinki and contributes tracks from RED HONEY and THE SCREAMING Js, Magpie Killjoy author of A STEAMPUNK's GUIDE TO SEX and many other fine publications, Portland, OR drummer JOE HAEGELE, BILLIE VACATION, BOMBS AWAY CABARET, Asheville NC drummer BRIAN FERRAND, Paul Christian Woodall of MAGADOG and THE REBELLES...

This Kickstarter will (fingers crossed) also help pay for a SOLO TOUR...  I want to COME TO YOUR HOME, yes friends, I'm doing a cross country tour in the early spring, solo, all on my lonesome, toting my tiny guitar and tiny accordion.  I want to do a series of house shows, FOR YOU! it's at the $220 level, if you are anywhere in the continental U.S. I will see you this spring!  There's also a reward for a regular show type show, at the $320 level. (email me hellblinki@hellblinki.com if you have questions!)

Stretch Goals!

At THE $9000 LEVEL you'll have helped me cover gas for my spring tour! as a token of gratitude I'll give two digital downloads of the song "No Home" to everyone who has pledged.  One version is an 80s-tastic production featuring TOM COYNE, drummer for 45 GRAVE and THE LAST DANCE along with Me, Valerie, and JP.  The second version is a rootsier version featuring the three of us with amazing Portland, OR drummer JOE HAEGELE.

If we hit the THE $12,000 LEVEL, I'll have "A False Dichotomy" manufactured as a CD and will give a copy to everyone who has pledged at the $20 level or above...

At THE $15,000 LEVEL, The "Assorted Pork Chops" DOUBLE CD will become physical reality and everyone at the $20 level or higher will get a copy!

Earn the "Eye of the Spider"! - this medal created by artist Richard O'Hara is only available through this Kickstarter... you have to earn it! ($50 level)

Now is your chance to OWN HISTORY!  I'm including all sorts of supercool Hellblinki memorabilia, limited and one of a kind items from the vault!

"ACE OF HEARTS HAT-CARD" This is the card I wore in my hat for several tours, originally made for an "Alice in Wonderland" themed burlesque show, where we debuted our "White Rabbit" cover.

 MY BEARD! really... this is the wacky multi-tentacled thing that hung from my chin for a couple of years.  I cut the sucker off after the fall 2012 tour... It can be yours! (it'll be professionally framed in a shadowbox...)

Risks and challenges

"Multitudes" will be my fifth full-length album (8th if you count the digital only ones!) there is no question that I can bring this project to completion!

Art is risk, life is risk. I risk the failure of the Kickstarter, leaving this fantastic album an abandoned orphan. I risk de-valuing art and music by trying out the "Pay what you want" model for the digital album. I risk not being able to fill enough dates for a solo tour. I risk putting my art, my thoughts, my ideas, my feelings out into the great wicked world to fend for themselves...

I stand to gain so much more than I may lose! I will have the honor of sharing my unique vision with more and more people, hopefully the "Pay what you want" model will help gain gobs more listeners. If the tour works out, I'll get to spend time with my beautiful and creative friends all over the country. I will, perhaps, come closer to realizing my dreams of supporting myself and family with music and art! (and thus be able to make more and more music and art!!)
