The Butcher is my friend...
Millions of years ago Dinosaurs ruled the Earth.
Today the Jazz Butcher and Max Eider announce their intention to make a new album of original songs, Last of the Gentleman Adventurers.
We've got a bunch of new songs which we plan to record at Richard Formby's studio in Leeds for that full-fat, big-tape, Bakelite sound.
Today we're launching an appeal for funds to record the album with Pledgemusic, a brilliant site where, by pre-ordering the album, you help us raise the funds to make it.
There is, in fact, a lot more to it than that: check out our page on Pledgemusic and you will see that there are all manner of strangely diverting things available to those of you who choose to support us.
Pledgemusic is an international company which has successfully funded projects for the likes of Cornershop, Viv Albertine, Amanda Palmer and Ian McCullough. They can deal with international payments, exchange rates and all that stuff. Your money is safe with them and, if for any reason the album doesn't go ahead, you will get it back. The fundraising project runs until the beginning of September.
Please help us out with this one. Check out our page here or click the picture.
