About

Hi! We are Echo Room, an art project and music label founded by the friends and family of Fergus Miller (aka Bored Nothing, Wedding Ring Bells, and one half of Revenge Surgery, Pansy). 

As some may know, Fergus tragically lost his battle with depression in 2016. He left behind a huge and prolific back-catalogue of music. Some of it has already been released on vinyl (Bored Nothing - Bored Nothing and Some Songs), but the majority was only released digitally through Bandcamp, or not at all. One of the aims of our label is to immortalise Ferg's work in a format that people can treasure. Wedding Ring Bells is our favourite project of Ferg's outside of Bored Nothing, so we've chosen that as our first physical release, but we're hoping to release his full back catalogue slowly, over time. 

Our funding goal is based on a run of 150 records, pressed at Zenith in Melbourne, which will go into production once funding completes, in March. If demand exceeds this, we'll increase the run to compensate - so everyone who orders a record during the Kickstarter will get one in May. The limited edition pink swirl vinyl will be capped at 50 records (otherwise it wouldn't be limited!).

We also have Ferg's original artwork and CD-R covers from his Wedding Ring Bells period - we're turning these into stickers and high quality art prints. A very limited number of his CD-R covers is also available for those who are looking for a little something extra to remember Ferg by.

Any money we make over our funding goal with go towards funding future releases of Ferg's music through Echo Room. 10% of this will go towards SupportAct, a charity dedicated to supporting arists with mental illness.

Risks and challenges

The main risk with pressing vinyl is issues in the initial acetate creation phase - this is when the initial "master" record is made, which all the other pressings will be copies of. If the test pressings come back with issues (clicks, pops, skips, distortion) the factory will need to cut a new acetate. This takes about a week per revision, and multiple revisions may be required until we get it just right. This means the pressing may be delayed by up to a month.

We'll be giving you regular updates on how it's all going, so you'll know straight away if we need to request a new test pressing, and how long it should take.
