Please, if you will now let me entice and excite you with the
launching of “Eldorado”. What is it you ask? Well, if you stop your blood
doping for a sec I’ll tell you. It’s some kinda car, I think, and/or a lost city of
gold, but for our purposes it’s what we’re calling the new subscription
service, (by we I mostly mean me).
See I really like making songs for you, and with you, and also covering
your favorite songs, Clem Snide and otherwise. But I can’t launch a
Kickstarter campaign every month and I know many of you don’t have $200
to spend so ephemerally. If you subscribe to “Eldorado” and pay the meager
$8 US a month you will receive, as well as inspire, a new and exclusive 3-5
song EP emailed monthly right to your door.
I don’t just want to peddle some tepid live recordings, or t-shirts, or
whatever. I want to make something new and weird and fun. So to join
Eldorado is not just to be a passive consumer of music but an active
participant in its creation. There will be a special email address to which you
will send your thoughts, ideas, words, lyrics, pictures, unfinished tracks,
anything really, so long as it’s fits in an email.
I will then tenderly scour these emails, randomly choose a few, and get
crackin’. Also it’s safe to say that there wont be many members, at first, so
there’s a good shot your email will be honored, at some point (I would try
and hold out for at least a year to see where it can go). I will send along
update emails to you as well. Now I realize this is mostly unchartered
territory, so as we swing our machetes through the underbrush I welcome
any and all of your questions and suggestions; and if nothing else you can
p.s You also get (for free) every new Eef/Snide release plus 2 tickets to a
show of your choosing. And big big thanks to Black2Red (formerly Go Hero!)
for making this actually possibly real.
