Jitterz - Debut EP!

£900

37

Hello. We are Jitterz. Nice to meet you.

With your help, we'd like to record a 4-track EP.

We are a 2piece punky rock and roll band from Leicester. We like to think we're like The White Stripes on a bad day, after not sleeping for 20 days because we've been listening to The Clash and chatting to Andy Warhol. Rather than us blabbing on, why not see for yourself what we're about. Here is our debut single One Good Song:

 

Are you an actual band though?

Well we have big dreamzz and write songs together and gig a lot and sometimes accidentally wear matching outfits. So we like to think so.

In all seriousness, other people have validated our strange life choices too. One Good Song got played on our local BBC Introducing (Derby, Leicester, Notingham) by the lovely Dean Jackson. By some kind of miracle Tom Robinson also gave us a spin on BBC Radio 6 Music. Also, people other than our Mum's said something nice about our music:

Chunky and choppy, Jitterz’s “One Good Song” speeds through it’s 2 minutes in a blink of an eye, and makes you wish they had at least one other song, if it was even half as good it’d still be better than whatever you listened to today. - Pop Occulture

If you're going to have one good song then make it an absolute killer and that's exactly what Jitterz have done. It's contagious, it's infectious, it's noisy, it's brash, it's bold and it's on track to being one of my favourite songs of 2016. - The Devil Has The Best Tuna

Why are you on Kickstarter?

Here at Jitterz we have DIY in our blood and under our skin and anywhere else you can think of in the body. That's why we hope Kickstarter will be our friend. What better way to fund shiny CD's and weird tshirts, than asking the lovely folk who hopefully like the noises we make? 

Where does the money go?

Your kind contributions will basically cover everything to make this EP possible. Studio and production costs, CD manufacture, merch costs, etc. With your help we can take a huge step closer to being an actual band. We'll have amazing merch to sell at gigs, shiny CD's to send to Simon Cowell (please sense 987987% sarcasm here)... the possibilities are endless and glittery. 

Are you going to stop talking now?

Yes. Well, almost. Thanks for reading this far. If you can spare a couple of quid or share our campaign page on the interwebs we'll give you a huge big virtual hug right NOW! 

You can make 2017 the best year ever for us and its barely started. What a lovely thing to do, eh?

Risks and challenges

TIMINGZ - We hope to get your rewards to you in early April. However, there are only 2 of us and we have an EP to make, blogs to pester, gigs to go to, a launch gig to arrange, jobs to go to, breakfast to eat and cats to cuddle. We promise to keep you in the loop if things are running a bit behind schedule. You'll definitely be able to look sexy in one of our tshirts by Summer though. Don't fret!

Please do contact us via here/ our facebook / in person if you know us, if you ever have any questions about our kickstarter, our rewards, and what our favourite colours are etc.
