To celebrate our 10th anniversary, Led Bib will be releasing a new album as well as a limited edition live vinyl on Cuneiform Records.

So....we have actually survived ten years together....hard to believe it's been so long! So....we want to celebrate, and we want to do that by making 2014 a really special year for Led Bib.

So, we really want to make this year a unique one for Led Bib. Our first ever vinyl release, a new approach to making an album for us, and of course touring all over the place and we want you to be part of it! To do this, the expenses are quite high, we need to pay for a quite special studio space to do the recording like we want to, Mark is now generally based in Vienna, so doing everything with Led Bib is that little bit more difficult and expensive, getting the vinyl done properly is expensive and we need your support in order for us to be able to do it all.

We have been out touring new Led Bib material for a while now and it is ready to go into the studio. But, this time we want the studio to be different than before. We are in the process now of searching for the perfect room where we can do everything live with no headphones and really blast off together. Every studio record has been about trying to find the best way to use the studio for a band like us, which isn't easy, and after 4 other attempts, now it is time for a new one and we can't wait to try it. We will be working with Head again on this record, who recorded and mixed the last record as well as Mandy Parnell who has been mastering our records since Sizewell Tea(!)

Alongside the album release we will simultaneously be releasing a limited edition LP of some tracks from one of our shows at the great Vortex Jazz Club in London. We had a great time playing there in February and we were really happy Shaun Crook was on hand to capture one of the nights and we will be mixing and mastering this onto vinyl! People have been asking for years about Led Bib doing a vinyl release and we are happy to say that we will finally do it.

We are also proud and pleased to once again be working with Cuneiform Records on these releases. We have been working with Cuneiform since the release of Sensible Shoes, they are a great label and a great partner and we are sure they will give this record the best chance of success.

So we decided that the best way to be able to get this project going is to ask the people who have supported us through these 10 years to support us in a slightly different way than usual. The money donated towards this will go to all the aspects of making this album a reality, from the studio hire costs, to fees of the designers, to the vinyl test pressings.

We are really excited about making our dreams for next year a reality and we hope you are too. We have lots of fun rewards lined up, from visiting us in the studio to a trip to White Hart Lane with Chris and we hope that you like them. As you may know, this is an all or nothing thing, so unless we reach our goal of £10,000 we will receive nothing, so please be generous and tell your friends. We really want to make this year a special one!

Any money which we earn over this goal will just get plowed into making the releases even better, and if we were to go really over the total(we know you guy are generous!!) then we will put that towards making sure when we tour, we can get to even more places, so that we can play for YOU!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

It is always difficult to make albums of improvised music, so obviously the first challenge for us is making the playing sound good! Hopefully if you are reading this, you think we have achieved that before, so I have no doubt we can do it again.

Also, while there are the constant problems of production delays and other problems, Led Bib and Cuneiform Records have a great relationship and we are fully confident that there will be no problem getting both releases ready for the May 2014 group of Cuneiform releases.

FAQ

  • You can feel safe pledging to this project because unless we reach our target we won't get any of the money and you won't be charged. This of course also means that you won't get all the great rewards you pledged for(!), so make sure you tell all your friends about the campaign :)
