DOWNLOADS - Good news! Our licensing agreement with Frontline has been updated to include the ability to offer downloads for sale during the campaign. There are now 2 new reward tiers offering a standalone download + bonus tracks, and a T-Shirt plus download + bonus tracks.

CDs + Downloads - More Good News! CD pledges will now include one complimentary download to accompany your pledge. (If you are pledging for a vinyl, you already get the download. If you are pledging for vinyl + CD, you already get the download.)

International Shipping - We have also opened the campaign to international shipping...with a couple caveats. If you are pledging from outside of the USA, Lo-Fidelity Records, Frontline Records, and Poor Old Lu are not responsible for lost or damaged orders once they are in the hands of the USPS and International Postal Carriers. We will make every effort to professionally package your order, but international shipping is "buyer beware" as their is no tracking or shipping insurance offered with regular USPS international mail. Reward levels containing multiple vinyl are automatically bumped to International Priority (due to weight) which is quite expensive - but automatically includes tracking and $100 insurance.

In the fall of 1993, 'Mindsize' was released nationally with little fanfare. Although Poor Old Lu had developed a devoted following in the Seattle area, their presence was otherwise fairly unknown outside of the Pacific Northwest scene. What began as a slow burn, would eventually become a well-known and highly-regarded debut album from a group of guys who had yet to even reach the age of  20. The maturity of their first major release belied their age and experience, displaying a surprising variety of musical styles and lyrical content. Now, just in time for it's 25th anniversary, 'Mindsize' will be remastered and released on deluxe CD, and for the first time ever, vinyl! Please join us in making this happen...

You have questions - we have answers!

Is Kickstarter a store? ~ No! For those unfamiliar with Kickstarter ~ this is an "all or nothing" fundraising platform.  You pledge the level that you want, and if we make our financial goal we use those funds to make the project a reality!  Yes, Kickstarter rewards tend to cost a bit more than normal retail, but project supporters are part of making something happen that probably otherwise wouldn't. If we don't make the fundraising goal, your cards aren't charged and the album goes back into limbo.

Is the band involved with this reissue? ~ Yes! Besides giving their blessing to have this campaign and reissue happen, they have been involved with choosing everything from the vinyl colors being pressed, handling the remastering, graphic design, and providing archival photos and promotion. Without them, this wouldn't be happening. 

What formats are being offered in the Kickstarter? ~ We are offering Deluxe CDs, and limited edition 180g Vinyl + downloads in this campaign. Due to licensing agreements, we are unable to offer downloads without the purchase of a vinyl record. ***Please note, if you are pledging for vinyl, we ship via USPS Media Mail using the Bags Unlimited heavy duty "Mighty Mailer". 99% of shipments arrive without issue. That said, unless your record arrives broken, torn, or in some way unplayable, we (Lo-Fidelity Records & Poor Old Lu) cannot exchange or accept returns for vinyl damaged by the USPS during shipping. If you have questions regarding this policy, please contact kickstarter@lo-fidelity.com before making your pledge. 

Will there be bonus tracks on the deluxe CD & download? ~ Yes! The band is planning to include at least 6 previously unreleased tracks from the 'Mindsize' era on both the CD and the download that will accompany every vinyl pledge.

Is this campaign available to pledges worldwide? ~ Unfortunately, no. Due to exorbitant international shipping costs, and unreliable postal services causing both loss and damage, we are only able to offer this campaign to fans in the USA. All remaining CDs & Vinyl will be available for purchase by domestic and international fans at the conclusion of the campaign via the Lo-Fidelity Bandcamp store in 2019. 

What kind/size of T-Shirts are being used in the campaign? ~ Our manufacturer will use BLACK pre-shrunk, 100% cotton, heavyweight Fruit Of The Loom shirts in mens sizes Small through 5XL. We will also produce the design on "Ladies Cut" t-shirts in sizes X-Small through XL.

If we meet the goal, how long will it be before you get my album? ~ June 2019 is the projected shipping date we have listed on this campaign. This could change based on manufacturing times, unforeseen delays, etc. It will hopefully ship much sooner. June 2019 is simply a projected "worst case scenario" date - not carved in stone. If waiting is something you're not wild about, this Kickstarter might not be for you... (Just sayin')

Risks and challenges

As always, the risk is not hitting the goal. If we hit the goal, you get "Mindsize"...
