ok. so i want to get this backlog of music released, and then get going on the new eps etc. i have just ordered an album by an artist called color cassette. the album is 8 tracks long. what interests me most about it is that it uses the old vinyl idea of side a and side b, but in a new light. the album comes as two 3" cds - 1 cd is 'side a' and the other cd is 'side b'. i like this idea. so, a proposal....
for those in england - have a listen through again to the tracks for 'i saw this and thought of you'. choose the two you like least and discard them. of the remaining 8 tracks, decide upon a running order, 4 tracks per 'side'. this then becomes our album. the packaging still remains simple but good, so we can sell the album relatively cheaply - say $10. maybe an insert with a single colour screenprint plus black photocopy at a3 size - a poster on one side with info on the other? the two cds are stuck one on either side of a piece of card, sitting on a foam dot each - so they are literally two sides. the whole thing could maybe be put into an envelope.
the other two tracks can be put out as an e-single, or saved and worked on for later ep use or something like that.
