About this project

$2,207

We here, at Vultures United Inc. want to release a covers 7" record but would like to see if people would want to see something like this created, by putting their money where their mouths are.

AKA: We're hoping you want this to happen and will therefore pay for it to become a reality.

The 7" is to be titled "GIRLS" and feature 5 to 6 tracks of cover songs, originally performed or sang by girls in bands or solo artists who are, you know......girls.

Although we're not ready to reveal the whole set of songs, you're more than likely going to hear rippers from the likes of:

X-Ray Spex, Sonic Youth, Bikini Kill, Nico and a few more that are random and may make heads explode.You can decide if that's a good thing or not.

Some are from punk type groups. Most are not.

What songs? No one knows yet. But that's part of the fun, isn't it?

The $2,200 we would like to raise, will cover a 500 piece press of the record on 3 different colors of vinyl with a unique UK style pop out label. The pressing would be with United Record Pressing in Nashville, TN. The $2,200 would also cover the recording, to be done at Buzz Bomb Labs with Paul Miner. And finally, it would help cover the price to ship the records to you (free of charge so to speak), along  with the awesome things we're willing to give you for helping us out on this wild money raising expedition.  

The idea of the record came to us one day in an insomniatic dream, and is intended to be a tribute to our mothers, wives, fiancees, female friends and female performers who inspire us every day. Also.....we like chicks. Cool?

Some of the songs we chose in original form are beautiful, but ours will more than likely not be. We plan to try some really different things with these set of songs, and promise some interesting and loud ideas along with some collaborations with others musicians.

The pressing of the record will be a 1 time pressing (of 500 records). Any pledge that reaches $50 or more, will get the regular version of the 7", along with a CDR version of the record (for you MP3 player lovers), ALONG WITH A FREE TEST PRESSING OF THE RECORD COURTESY OF UNITED RECORD PRESSING, which will have a different album cover than the regular version and your name printed in the artwork of the official release (and more than likely, the test pressing artwork as well).

The 3 colors of vinyl have not been dedided yet. But one more than likely will be pink.

The colors will be randomly distributed. Early backers (and higher paying backers) to this project will have the best probability of receiving shorter run colors.

Once the target funds are raised, the recording of the record will begin, followed by the manufacturing. We're guessing, maybe 2 to 3 months after funds are collected on our end. Patience is a virtue. 

Note* the picture above is NOT the album cover or the test pressing album cover. We just like girls and balloons a whole lot.
