This is going to be reeeeeally limited. As in limited to the people who pre-ordered it....No mas!
Tim Larson shot this and put his thumb over the mic. But I thought it was worth posting. The entire show is posted in the live music section...as ONE large file....of course there is about two minutes of music playing before I come on. You can hear the audience HARRANGUING me too.
I kind of wouldn't mind playings some shows like THIS, laid back, acoustic oriented, with people who came to see music. If it hadn't been freezing there might have even been more people.
The snow....scotched tomorrow's show (details below). Make it Feb 9...same otherwise.
I do not do a lot of these but I am playing first on a four person bill at Beat Kitchen in Chicago on February 2 , 2011 (Wed). I play at 830. If you are late I will be done!
Acoustic performances by all acts.
The $10 deal for the advance of the last Thanatos PHYSICAL release (which, despite the picture above is not from Projekt..who are awesome but not putting out this record) is about to end. The reason for this is that it is going to be limited to 100 and be MUCH more of an art project than initially was the case. AND it is gonna cost a lot more than friggin $10.
For one thing, everyone who buys a copy before Dec 1 can send me a list of three cover songs and I will record ONE of them ONLY for the person making the request (ie I will send you a disc with the one song of the three I choose). Is that clear? Send me a list of three songs if you have bought, or do advance buy the new CD, and I will record a specific cover song JUST for you.
Someone asked me, when I brought up this clever concept, if I would write a song instead. Yeah, fuck you. I haven't written a new song for 3 or 4 years. Send me a list of covers!
Shoot me an email at patrick (at) thanatos (dot) biz if you have bought one and want to send me a list. I will inform all the pre-orderers of this new thing in case they do not regularly check the site.
AND the December 1 date is firm. Cause this is gonna be a huuuuge money loser anyway...Details soooooon.
I know, it has taken a load of time to get the last CD out. And I am really not totally close to getting enough orders to finish it up. But I do plan to get the discs themselves done in the next month or so.
The art I am still debating. It is likely to be a limited run of 1o0 copies, signed by me and the artist....
After than I plan to record some new songs- covers and originals-and post them here for your perusal....free of course. That will be the new Thanatos ethos, music for the people. Of course, you won't be able to download it but that is really just because of my current server.
Hope all is well with everyone.
Which should not be shocking. I am stalled on getting this disc out cause I am not getting enough orders. Not a big deal, may just revamp the thing to be a more artistic piece, with packaging expanded and numbers reduced.
Working on it, thinking about it! Let me know what you all think.
For the few, the brave, the non-thrifty, who purchased the advance of the Exterminating Angel CD, I am thinking I might post the complete record, and then some. on here with a password. It is slowly progressing but I feel kind of bad you paid for something but cannot HEAR it. The recording is obviously done therefore , sometime soon, I am going to put the record up here for you payee types (and only you) to listen to. I am also going to include the outtakes that were going to be on the digital only version of the record that will not now exist as such.
I may even add some other stuff. In fact. I am so grateful to all of you I may put some new music up here that only you all can get too.
$122. Not exactly Jill Sobule #s but what do you want? I figure this is about 20 percent of what I need to get this done. Earlier I had a smaller number but that was because I am dimwit and did the math wrong. I toyed with the idea of dispensing with the digipack and going with something cheaper but then the art would have to be redone and since I haven't paid the ARTIST yet I don't think that is likely.
I am hoping I do not have to refund money!!! Keep your fingers crossed! Do you think I should stream the music here and sell it that way? Or does that just make people figure it is FREEEEEE....Which it ain't!
Yes yes yes. I have been neglecting this site. I just haven't had much new to write. We are chugging along with collecting money to get The Exterminating Angel out. SLOWLY but surely. Our friends at Projekt and Musictap have been helping to spread the word. I am guessing I am about 20 percent of the way to having it together to get the record out.
And I want to be clear. It isn't JUST about money. It is about--if there are not enough people who WANT a CD..why DO a CD? I do not need boxes of CDs to make a coffee table out of. The music exists either way...but if you order that you will have one of a very few! Of this I assure you!
