About this project
PEPPI MARCHELLO: SONGWRITER
On July 10th, the rock & roll world lost one of its great unsung heroes--the founder, leader and frontman of THE GOOD RATS, the group Rolling Stone Magazine called "the world's greatest unknown band." Peppi Marchello may not have received the international notoriety that fans, critics and fellow musicians believed he'd achieve, but his legion of dedicated fans regard him as one of the finest vocalists, performers, and songwriters of his generation.
In conjunction with the Marchello family, Aardwolf Publishing is proud to present PEPPI MARCHELLO: SONGWRITER, a beautiful book that will collect Peppi's beloved lyrics. For the first time, you'll see his words on page surrounded by intimate photos of Peppi from his family archives. Not only that, you'll also find never-recorded songs, including some Peppi was working on just before he left us. A limited printing of this memorable book will also include memories from Peppi's dedicated fans. It's a book every Good Rats fan will cherish.
Don't miss this special opportunity to participate with Peppi's family in publishing PEPPI MARCHELLO: SONGWRITER. Let's continue putting Peppi's name in lights where it belongs.
Note: Now that we've reached our funding goal, the book is definitely coming out. Now we will be announcing stretch goals:
Stretch Goal #1
If we hit $10,000 – Everyone who has pledged $75 or more will not only receive everything at that perk level, but will also receive a signed copy of one of Clifford Meth’s fiction collections (where Peppi frequently makes appearances, in one way or another). Yes, we know you didn’t ask for the extra book, but you can also use it as a door-stopper.
More importantly, if we hit $10,000, the book will have an extra 30 pages—even more songs and stories and photos!
Note: This book is scheduled to ship in March, 2014. Only 1000 numbered copies will constitute the first printing of this limited-edition book. We also plan to have copies available at the Good Rats Reunion Show at BB King's in New York City in March, 2014.
Risks and challenges
Aardwolf Publishing--and Clifford Meth--were proud to have a relationship with Peppi Marchello & The Good Rats for nearly two decades. As such, we are delighted to work with his family to bring you this special book. As all of the songs were already written, it is just a question of bringing our publishing and marketing expertise to this project. The only challenge is time--we want to have everything complete before the Good Rats Reunion Show / Peppi Marchello Tribute at BB Kings in New York City this coming March. And we will!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
Then your credit card will not even get charged. And, sadly, this book will not come out. :(
So let's not let that happen! Tell fellow Rat fans about this book and ask them to reserve a copy or, better yet, participate!
