Allo Folks

I have been recording with Jeremy Paul Carroll and I think this is the best thing I’ve recorded as a solo performer. Its Just me, with a guitar, stomp box and voice. I wanted to make a recording of what I have been doing live. It is being mastered as I type this and I am very excited to show you what I have done. I have also brought in Bang Graphics to put the artwork for the album together and this is all underway too. This is the first time I have taken a serious and professional approach to releasing my work at the best quality possible as a musician. I’d like to be able to share this and celebrate my new album with as many of you as possible this year, especially at my album launch.

Why am I doing a kickstarter then?

I wanted to do something special for this album release, so I have gone and done something really really scary… I have booked The Fiddler’s Elbow in Camden, London on 18th June and I plan to Sell It Out. It is Limited to just 100 tickets and you can only get the tickets through here. If your name is not on the list you’re not coming in… Now I didn’t just wanna do a normal boring gig, so you will all get a Goody Bag PACKED with LOADS of limited edition merchandise, which you can only get if you come to the gig.

So Why do I need £2000 then?

The reason for £2000 goal is to pay for manufacturing of the CDs, the merch Goody Bags, and for putting on the night. The breakdown of costs is as follows:

100 x Eco Tote Bags (Goody bags) = £135
100 x A3 Heavyweight Posters = £42
1,000 x CD's = £800
100 x T-Shirts = £330
100 x 2 Badge set = £75
Support/Crew/Venue costs = £438
Kickstarter + Transaction Fees (estimated) = £180

Now I know there’s loads of people who live nowhere near London, so I have put in option for the PRE ORDER, its simple, you get the CD before anyone else (except for people at the launch party), and it will be posted out on 17th June, which means you will also be able to hear it before the digital release which will be at the beginning of August.

Thanks for reading this,

Doozer McDooze

Risks and challenges

All of the artwork is already underway for this CD, I've already recorded it in a Studio and it's already been mastered before this Kickstarter is even launched, so... here's my risks...

- If I don't sell 100 tickets there will not be an Album Launch Party.
- More importantly, I will not be able to buy my CD's.
- Even more importantly, I won't be able to get you all lots of really cool merchandise.

Most important of all...
... If I don't sell this out, then I will look really silly, and wont talk to any of you again and it will be YOUR FAULT my career is dead.

To be honest the worst thing that would happen is, I will cancel the launch night, and save up the money to get the CDs made, which means it will not be out till 2017

**Disclaimer: You will not really be responsible for the death of my career, I will not really ignore you, I'll still be your friend, I will actually look like a knob though, that will still be your fault**
