Forest Records meeting minutes,

Present – Jane, Dai, Dan

Agenda:
• Distribution – who will send what where?
• Inner sleeves
• Future Releases

Distribution:
The purpose of the record is for promotion of us and our artists, not necessarily money making. We should send out to as many people as possible.

When stocking in shops, see if they take a cut and make sure we get $5 back from each sale.

SHOPS

Dan will take 5 records to Avalanche and poster from bb
Jane will take 5 to Mono in Glasgow, and a poster
Dai will take 10 copies home to Wales, giving 5 to Spills and 5 to My KungFu records

FAMOUS FOLKS

Dai will send a copy to Andy Kershaw
Dan to that guy in Lewis
Jori Kim
5 Branahuie
Stornoway
Isle of Lewis
HS2 0BB
Julian Cope - Dai
Sunburned Hand of Man - Dan

REVIEWERS

The Wire - Dai
The Skinny - Jane
NME – Jane
The List – Dai
Edinburgh Seven for a fox themed review - Dan
All UK social centres – Jane will ask Shannon for a list of addresses

FRIENDS

Dan sends 5 copies to American friends who have contacts
Dan sends 5 copies to Macheney
Jane to send 10 to Dirk
Jane will contact her London people and see if they know distribution places, and send them.

Golden Hour on tour will take some records with (Jane)

Dai will source envelopes ASAP so we can start sending.

***Post on the distro sticky if you have addresses. Post anything you do on the sticky sales and distrob xxx*****

Inner Sleeves:
Need doing. We will instigate a weekly funday of colouring in things. Mondays at 5. Jane will make a poster to advertise, and bb it, etc. You should all come and immortalize your good selves

Future Releases:
Forest Records is interested to hear about the planned make-an-ep-in-a-night party. Perhaps we will support you with benevolent guidance and love. Perhaps not. Xxx

I'm on top of the make an ep in a night thing, but I'm also uber busy hectic mental at the moment so it may not happen for another few weeks or so. Any help you wanna give is much appreciated (or perhaps not) and I shall organise a meeting once I've got the idea down properly. Good list of musicans are lined up so far which is good. Don't worry it will happen. Promise, just wish there were more hours in the day. :cry:
Nix is helping out with this.

did we ever make a press release, it might be an idea to have this fixed,
otherwise I'm just going to reprint the lyrics to Aerosmith - Big Ten Inch Record

got me the strangest woman
believe me this trick's no cinch
but I really get her going
when I whip out my big 10 inch

record of a band that plays the blues
well a band that plays its blues
she just love my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues

last night I tried to tease her
I gave my love a little pinch
she said now stop that jivin'
now whip out your big 10 inch

record of a band that plays those blues
well a band that plays the blues
she just loves my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues

I, I, I cover her with kisses
and when we're in a lover's clinch
she gets all excited
when she begs for my big 10 inch

record of a band that plays those blues
well a band that plays the blues
she just love my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues

my girl don't go for smokin'
and liquor just make her flinch
seems she don't go for nothin'
'cept for my big 10 inch

record of a band that plays the blues
band that play the blues
she just love my big 10 inch
record of her favorite blues

it would be good to do a regular forest records event. not sure how this would take shape really but it's the kind of thing that really helps shift records. obviously many of the people on the record are not there but there may be a creative way to make a forest record event? maybe?
