Jobcentre Rejects - Ultra Rare NWOBHM 1978-1982
"larger than life music made by larger than life people"
A super deluxe reissue of rare NWOBHM singles originally released between 1978-82. Remastered and restored sound, extensive linernotes, rare photos and memorabilia, gatefold sleeve and absolutely no expenses saved when it comes to make a first class reissue.
The Kickstarter funds will be used to set up a label -On The Dole Records- and to cover part of the license right fees for original recordings/advance royalties for featured artists, research, remastering, artwork/layout, pressing of vinyl, printing of cover, marketing, promotion, setting up distribution channels and more.
Featured artists on this initial volume of Jobcentre Rejects include: Predatür, Stray, Metal Mirror, Overdrive, Spider, The Next Band and Frenzy.
12 tracks and 45 minutes playing time in total.
The original 45s were privately released, issued in extremely small quantities and are nowadays highly collectable and some of them fetch sums in the range 400-600 USD each when (if...) they ever shows up on Discogs, eBay or similar.
Extensive liner notes by renowned UK writer Kieron Tyler (Mojo, The Guardian and more)
The release date is scheduled for April 19th 2019
If this release reach break even, we have plans to make many further volumes of Jobcentre Rejects and also other reissues of highly collectable musical treasures.
It's a part of (British) music history that has been almost criminally overlooked until now.
It's music that deserve to be heard by many fans and it is also music of historical value that should be preserved for today's and for future generations.
Risks and challenges
Realeasing deluxe reissues is risky business. We don't do this to get rich. We do it because we love the music and think it must be done. Hopefully people will notice the time, love and effort we put into this and will support us and we'll get the money we invest back in the end.
It's strange no-one have tried to reissue these rare recordings before. They are incredibly great records. Anyone into any form of rock'n'roll music will without doubt agree.
No matter if anyone decides to back us up or not we will still go ahead and do the Jobcentre Rejects anyhow (nobody have ever been able to tell us what to do or not). But with your back-up to lean on we'll get bigger financial muscles = bigger chance to reach more listeners. This is music that deserve to be heard by many and it's also music that has to be documented properly for historical reasons.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
