About this project
What Is "Uncle Sam and Aunt Pharm"?
"Uncle Sam and Aunt Pharm" is the title of Null Factor's 7th studio album. The album is going to be a 2-disc concept album. The concept for the first disc ("Uncle Sam") revolves around a corrupt government that keeps its people in the dark through the use of mass media and, as it is revealed, pharmaceuticals.. This leads to the second disc, "Aunt Pharm" and centers on the rampant use of legally prescribed drugs to help keep the general public blissfully unaware of their government's shadowy actions.
Who Is Null Factor?
Null Factor is the Electronic Industrial / EBM project developed by Dan Harvell. Null Factor formed in 1999 as a result of the dissolution of Harvell's first band, MiLLENNiA. Since 1999, Null Factor has released 6 studio albums.
For What Will the Funds Be Used?
Previous Null Factor releases have been completely self-released. While this has helped in keeping the budgets at a minimum, quality has suffered, due to the lack of proper mastering. The funds raised during this Kickstarter campaign will go for professional mastering. This album is a large undertaking - a 2-disc concept album. Our goal is to produce this album in the most professional manner possible. Loud and proud!
Is "Uncle Sam and Aunt Pharm" Going To Be Released On a Big Name Label?
The album is going to be released under Checksum Recordings, which happens to be a recording label owned and operated by yours truly. However, Checksum Recordings is expanding to encompass more acts. We're not a big name label, but we're growing!
Risks and challenges
Currently, the only risk is knowing whether all the tracks to be included on the album will be written and recorded in time to reach the December 2013 deadline. Right now, writing is almost completely finished, leaving only the recording aspect. Since 2013 has just begun, I see no reason why this project cannot be recorded, ready for mastering in time to reach our projected release date. However, if recording does go long, I will keep all investors well informed and updated. I will be completely transparent throughout the entire process.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
