PLEASE CONTINUE TO READ BELOW FOR MORE DETAIL AS TO THE CAMPAIGN

********************************************************************************************

Over the years, one thing Electric Six has discovered is that the appetite of its fans for more music is unending, unyielding, and insatiable.  In interactions with fans, the band is asked most often about two types of potential releases (beyond the yearly album of new material, of course): covers and rarities. Electric Six has enough cover ideas thrown at it by fans to fill up 20 albums, and ever since the release of the rarities compilation "Sexy Trash," we've had people clamoring for more obscurities and unheard gems.

So, we've decided to do them both. The purpose of this project is to make real the release of a two disc set (sorry, it'll be CD-only, no vinyl), to be entitled "Mimicry And Memories." The "Mimicry" disc will contain 12 covers, 8 of which have been selected by the band, with the remaining 4 cuts hopefully chosen by pledgers as part of this campaign. The "Memories" disc is a successor to "Sexy Trash," as a collection of outtakes and rarities from the full scope of the band's career. Included on this disc are THREE songs which were just recorded as part of the sessions for the band's forthcoming album on Metropolis Records, "Human Zoo." Thus, the sound quality of songs on this disc will vary from track to track, much as it did on "Sexy Trash."  However, everything on the "Memories" disc is absolutely listenable and enjoyable. As those who own "Sexy Trash" will know, the nature and construction of Electric Six songs often shifts dramatically during the course of development, so demo versions of songs which did make it to albums which are  included on this disc are different (sometimes radically so) than the "final" version. For the true Crazy, it's fascinating to see how the songs develop from embryonic version to their final state.

In keeping with the special nature of this project,  these discs will only be available as part of this Kickstarter campaign. We won't be selling them at shows, they won't every be available at retail or via mailorder through the band's webshop, etc. 

To whet your appetite, here's what we can tell you about the tracks to be included in this groundbreaking, culture-shaping, life-changing 2 disc set:

MIMICRY

1. One (Harry Nilsson)

2. The Warrior (Patty Smyth and Scandal)

3. The Look (Roxette) - Smorgasbord selection

4. Ah Leah (Donnie Iris) - Dick Valentine selection

5. Buckingham Green (Ween) - DaVe selection

6. I Got The Six (ZZ Top) - Tait Nucleus? selection

7. Do You Love Me? (Kiss) - Percussion World selection

8. Girls Want To Be With The Girls (Talking Heads) - Johnny Na$hinal selection

9. Everywhere (Fleetwood Mac) - Crazies' selection

10. Easy Lover (Phil Collins and Phillip Bailey) - Crazies' selection

PLUS up to 4 additional songs to be determined by pledgers.

MEMORIES

1. Intro from "Exterminate" Tour

2. Dance Epidemic (XFM Session)

3. Typical Sagittarius

4. The Shiek Don't Lie

5. Taxi To Nowhere Piano/Vocal demo

6. Short Love

7. Night Vision Demo

8.  I Don't Speak French Demo

9. I Can Translate Demo

10. My Struggle With Heroin

11. Free Samples Demo

12. Bad Ass

13. Gay Bar (Live at Manumission)

14. Dancing Like An Idiot - Valentine Demo

15. Technical Difficulties

16. Slices Of You - Nash Demo

17. Turn It Up - Nash Demo

18. Strike While The Iron Is Hot - Nash Demo

19. Ziggy (ADDED AS OF 6/9/14)

PLUS three songs recorded as part of the 2014 "Human Zoo" album sessions. We'll reveal those track titles at some point during the campaign.

Deep Crazies may want to know why certain songs aren't included here, such as those which were part of the online Machinima series "Bite Me" or songs from the California Milk Producer's "White Gold" advertising campaign. The simple answer is that we don't own the rights to that material. Electric Six was compensated for that work, just the same as if it had been done for a record company. What that means is we have no control over when, if ever, those songs are given a public release, and we can't include them here.  Everything else, though, is fair game...the "Memories" disc really is the final clear out of unreleased E6 material worth hearing, so unless Electric Six is still around in 2030, this is probably the last "rarities and outtakes" release we'll ever be in position to do.

Much as with the "Absolute Treasure" project, this isn't entirely about the core product, though. We've tried to give you, the Crazies, a mix of new ideas and another shot at some of the more popular ones from the last campaign in the way of packages. Looking for a personally autographed (complete with individualized message) hardcover version of Dick Valentine's recent psycho-sexual noir thriller "Chinatown Reacharound?" We've got that.  How about a 10 minute backrub for man, woman or indeterminate Third Gender? Step up, Crazy. Ever wanted Valentine to play in your living room? It's now possible.

Thus, the idea is this with regard to the "Mimicry And Memories" project: give fans the two things Electric SIx is asked for most often, covers and unreleased recordings in one package. Additionally, provide those fans who wish to participate interesting and unique options beyond the 2 disc set. We think we've done that with this project.

Risks and challenges

Risks are virtually nil, as E6 has all resources (once the project is funded successfully) on hand to drive it to completion.

Challenges, such as they are, mostly surround fulfillment. Having mounted a successful campaign in 2013, we are confident that the project will be similarly successful. A certain percentage of pledgers from outside the US (almost exclusively in the United Kingdom) faced issues with customs charges attaching to their rewards and that may occur again in this campaign. See the project FAQs for further discussion of this issue for non-US pledgers. Beyond that, we had right around 1% of pledgers not receive their package upon initial mailout and in all cases we are aware of, replacements were shipped ASAP and pledgers received their packages on the second attempt.

These are to be collected in a 6" X 9" paperback called "Propaganda." This will be a no-frills production...we can't reproduce the photos used to accompany the previews because securing rights would be expensive and ridiculous. So it's just the text, but oh, what text it is, Crazies. We're only producing this one for Kickstarter and it's being offered by popular demand (or the requests of a handful of people on Facebook...you be the judge). Who knows, we might even fix the typos!

    A copy of "Mimicry And Memories" PLUS a copy of "Sexy Trash" PLUS Smorgasbord's bass! See the picture we've included elsewhere on this page. This is a Fender Jazz bass used by Smorgasbord during most of his tenure in the band. This bass has seen a lot, Crazies. Fair warning: the neck is a little bowed from the rigors of full throttle touring, which can affect the tuning a bit. However, in terms of a piece of E6 memorabilia, few items pack the punch this one does. Important note regarding this package; because shipping costs can vary wildly on this one, we're not including a shipping price in this package. Instead, upon closure of this campaign, we will provide the pledger with a statement as to shipping costs and that will need to be sent to us via our Paypal account before the item can be shipped (details on that to be provided as needed. As a rough guide, if you reside outside of North American, you can expect this item will cost several hundred dollars in shipping costs (likely anywhere from $2-400 in our experience).

If you'd like them to create an entirely new, mind-bending version of any E6 song from "Exterminate"-on in the band's catalogue, that'll work as well. Your choice.

    E6 WRITES YOU A SONG - A copy of "Mimicry And Memories" PLUS a copy of "Sexy Trash" PLUS Electric Six will write you a song about the subject matter of your choice (within reason, of course. Valentine has final approval, same as it ever was). We had a lot of fun doing a couple of these as part of the "Treasure" project and are bringing it back for one lucky pledger. You pick the subject and themes and Valentine and Co. deliver you an aural jem for you and you alone.

    DICK VALENTINE ACOUSTIC GIG IN YOUR HOUSE - A copy of "Mimicry And Memories" PLUS a copy of "Sexy Trash" PLUS a very special acoustic performance in YOUR home or other venue you provide by Dick Valentine. Mr. Valentine will come to your chosen locaton and perform the songs you've been dying to hear, right in front of you, your good time buddies, and anybody else you want to witness it. Want to charge people money to see it to cover your expenses? WE DON'T CARE! Want to throw the party of your lifetime for you and all your friends with DV as the main attraction? That's cool too, brah or brahette. We'll work out the date for this together, just you and us.

    Here are the parameters on this one: The $2000 price will cover a performance anywhere in the US or UK. If you reside somewhere other than those three nations and you're interested in pledging for this package, you MUST contact us at electricsixofficial@gmail.com BEFORE pledging in order for us to be able to determine a reasonable amount to add onto the pledge to cover travel and lodging expenses for Mr. Valentine. The two countries mentioned are the ones where travel costs for Mr.Valentine are fairly reasonable and/or where E6 tours frequently enough to be able to work this into an itinerary. NOTE: Most parts of Canada will also be do-able for the $2K, but contact us BEFORE pledging to confirm that your Canadian city qualifies.

    I WAS THERE BOOK - A copy of "Mimicry And Memories" PLUS a copy of "Sexy Trash" PLUS a one of a kind book from E6's own DaVe. Last year's "Backstage Dicks" book project was an unqualified success if we do say so ourselves, but DaVe is looking to outdo himself this time around. This book is entitled "I Was There." DaVe is going to document the back stage scenes, the endless hours in the van, the nights in a Red Roof Inn, the flights overseas, the endless hours in Russian trains, the visits to services chippies in England, ALL OF IT. Here's the best part, though...YOU will be Photoshopped into the photos, as if YOU WERE THERE. This is going to be a high caliber work, executed by design professionals assisting Mr. Ve. The book will be printed on high quality photo book paper, so the winning pledger will be getting a truly one of a kind, memorable end product. The price tag is admittedly high on this one but the costs and man hours involved are staggering...of course, so will be your level of joy when you own the only copy ever produced of this monumental work.
