We're looking for a little support to help us finish up production of a 12" vinyl record. We are a Los Angeles DIY band that's been playing for 8 years--we are unsigned and have put out all of our records, since 2002, completely unassisted, funding everything by ourselves. The only financial support we ever get is from people buying copies of our records.

Our most recent record, which we're trying to put out this November, is recorded and mixed; but we are short of funds to finish it up. So, in effect, we're asking people to pre-order a copy, which will help us get it mastered and pressed to vinyl. We're going to cover all the other costs, and we'll silkscreen the record covers ourselves, as we've done on past projects.

    Pledge $100 or more About $100

    This is the Song Poem option. It gets you a copy of the record PLUS a unique, custom 7" record of us performing 2 songs based on your submitted lyrics/poetry. In true song-poem tradition, you will send us 2 short poems and we will set them to music. We'll perform the songs on our 4 track and record them to a custom 7" record. You will get the only copy of this record--we'll post the results as mp3's on our blog. Includes shipping for both records.

    NOTE: we reserve the right to edit down extremely long poems to a manageable size (we have to fit this on a 45 rpm single, after all). If you prefer to submit one longer poem and have us split it into 2 songs, that's okay. We also reserve the right to edit profanity/sexist/racist lyrics if necessary.

    The pillow pledge. This will get you a copy of the record plus a small pillow, hand-sewn by our drummer, and filled with our dog's hair. We have a very fluffy dog and he grows a lot of hair all the time; we have to constantly shave it off to keep it from getting matted. Trust us, he's not gonna miss this hair. Includes shipping for the record and pillow.
