Since my last solo CD in late 2008, I've stockpiled quite a few new recordings, and I've been unsure, in this ever-shifting musical landscape, of how I should release them. After a few months' reflection, I've finally come up with a plan: A RECORD CLUB! I will send out 4 distinct and lovely 7" records to subscribers throughout 2012 -- in February, May, August and November.
BUT THAT'S NOT, as they say, ALL! COMPACT DISC and DOWNLOAD packages are also on offer -- so even if you're not a vinyl junkie, you can still get the music in a format you prefer.
The video above explains it well, but in the name of transparency, I've also posted the rough budget below, as well as three songs for you to preview. You might also want to take a stroll through my back catalogue on my Bandcamp page: http://zapruderpoint.bandcamp.com/
And feel free to keep up with all the latest Zapruderland news on the main blog/site here: http://www.zapruderpoint.com/wp/
Thanks again for checking out the Club, and I do hope you consider participating.
Here is a rough budget, for your consideration.
A video of me talking about all the reward/subscription levels.
Finally, if you REALLY like my talking head, here's an earlier, longer version of the story behind this whole hare-brained scheme:
Actually, Amazon and Kickstarter take somewhere around 10% combined off the top, so I'm really looking at $2900 for a project that, if you check the budget, is projected to cost around $3500. So anything up to $3500 gross will break me even. Anything above that, I should be so lucky. But I think I would look into better packaging for both the records and the CDs. In short, rest assured that I would share the wealth. Because I'm a filthy Socialist.
