We superheroes turned supervillains turned musicians at CRIME and the Forces of Evil have recorded our first full-length CD, Dick Tracy Must Die! It's with the mastering engineer right now, and will be back in the near future - if he knows what's good for him, anyway. XD Very soon, we'll need to make copies!

Solarbird the Lightbringer has already built the little studio where we recorded the album; now she wants a CD duplicator, so we can keep our band's DIY aesthetic going and finish the project ourselves. Specifically, we want an Acronova Nimbie LightScribe auto-publisher, which is not expensive, but has the capabilities we need; it offers LightScribe labelling - we've designed for that, you can see an example above - and bulk duplication.

We do a lot of experimental CDs, too - samples, sponsor copies, minicollections, limited live pressings of experimental tracks, things like that - and the duplicator will make all that much easier.

Please check out our music at http://crimeandtheforcesofevil.com - we have 128k streaming mp3s of the first album up at the website, as well as a couple of side projects, and we're getting ready to add more. Thank you very much for your consideration!

Holy cow, we hit the funding target! Thanks so much, backers! But if you're coming by and the project hasn't closed yet, you can still back us - we'll have a lot of expenses not included in the basic project, like printing the (paper) lyrics booklet for the jewel case front panel, and things like that! Anything above target will still go to the same cause: getting this CD out!

    Two signed copies of the finished album, and Solarbird will produce your single in her ministudio. PLEASE BE AWARE that this is a very small studio, suitable for one musician at a time, without even room for a proper drumkit. But this is where she recorded and produced Dick Tracy Must Die, Twelve Good Measures's vocal recording, "Nothin' But a Song," and a couple of other projects. Listen to those at our website!
