"Well, That About Wraps It Up For The Sea" is a compilation CD of the world's finest Experimental Surf Bands. You can hear some of them in the video. It will be packaged in a little cardboard gate-fold sleeve. It will look nice. There is a little girl and a bear on the front.

The 16 bands on the CD are: The Kettering Vampires, Marie Harel and The Cheese, Brane World, The Conrad Gessners, The Tessellations, The Pterodactyls, Ronnie and The Cardboard, The Winding Numbers, The End of Recorded Time, Non-Human Footwear, Aaaaaaaaxb, The Bosonics, Culpho Dog Gymkhana, The French, The Melamine Division Plates and Five Nightmare Fishing Scenarios.

This CD is the fourth in a series that also includes "Beyond the Sea", "Further Beyond the Sea" and "Considerably Further Beyond the Sea". The original idea was to encourage surf instrumental bands to explore new territory and, in fact, the series is becoming progressively stranger. Just wait till you hear this new one.

The other "rewards", as they call them on here, are mostly other CDs released by Cordelia Records. This is basically an opportunity to get them cheaper than usual.

These are the other CDs in the "Beyond the Sea" series:

 

 

Then there are these three compilations of surf instrumental covers of tunes by Frank Zappa, David Bowie and The Rolling Stones...

 

 

 ...and there are five CDs of bands (not necessarily surf instrumental ones) performing the music of Franz Zappa....

 

 

 

 

 ...and there are six albums by my old band The Thurston Lava Tube...

 

 

 

 

 

 ...there's also this T-shirt. You can choose a small, medium, large, XL or an XXL one...

 There are probably more details about many of these at the Cordelia Records web site

Risks and challenges

Nothing can stop this project going ahead except for the zombie apocalypse. You never know what the pressing plant might do but I'm hoping the CD will be ready right after the end of ths kickstarter.
