UPDATE: We hit our funding target!
WHY AYE MAN!
We're now trying to fund the full cost of the print - £1200.
Thanks so much for your generosity so far.
So: we need your help to get this record out and start the funeral pyre burning.
Remember all those good times you saw O'Messy Life the band play? opening for Titus Andronicus, or The Vaccines, or Phosphorescent, or Matt Pryor or Ted Leo, or Summer Camp?
It was a long time ago, you probably remember thinking 'well this is really good, I like their life affirming mix of needlessly neurotic and depressing lyrics and guitar shred...but I bet at some point years in the future they'll lose their label, face incredible delays, have some difficult personal issues and then come begging me for money'
...well that time has come. Listen to new track 'Awkward Animals' from the new O'Messy Life EP 'Challenger' * and help us fund the release by pre-ordering:
You can now also hear another track 'For My Widow' here:
This Kickstarter is only to raise SOME of the record printing money. All of the recording, videoing, artworking, mixing, mastering - that's all been done and paid for. Don't sweat it, it cost loads already but that's not your fault and nobody but us pays for that.
We really need £1200.

Thanks so much to all of you that order and have helped us over the years.
* Yes this record is called 'Challenger' as well. Yes the last one was also called 'Challenger'.
Don't call it 'Challenger 2', it's just called 'Challenger' just like the last one was.
Risks and challenges
As we're working with a vinyl pressing plant, there is a chance that the quoted turn around time will take longer. If this occurs, you'll still receive downloads of the music and all other pledges promptly.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
