About

We plan to produce an initial pressing of 1,000 CDs of our debut album consisting of surf versions of Nirvana songs entitled Whatever on Participation Trophy Records.

Mechanical rights alone (the royalties paid to the owners of the songs' publishing) to produce these CDs add up to well over $1,000, which is why we're turning to the Kickstarter community for help.

As of this writing, recording of all basic tracks, save bass guitar on "Smells Like Teen Spirit," is complete, and the project has entered postproduction with a projected release date of May 2013, just in time for a Surfana summer.

First-time-ever/one-take demos can be heard at soundcloud.com/surfana . Warning: these are rough, rough, rough (and quite sloppy at points; they were knocked out singlehandedly in an afternoon), but we hope they will give you, as they did us, an idea of the worthiness of this endeavor.

Risks and challenges

The greatest obstacle will be finishing the postproduction processes of editing, mixing, mastering, etc. by our self-imposed deadline. It's time to knuckle down.
