yo. i have spoken to a few folk in forest records. i have.
myself and maybe 12 other musical artists have formed a thing called little lamp records. its like saying we are a record label and then homegrowing our own records. our first release is nearly ready in thatwe have nearly got all the track listings. it will be a cd full or songs. like 20. it will be good. we will hand make/screen print/strencil all the covers.
then the artists featured on the cd buy them from us at cost price. and sell them for there own money. its like a sampler. the small time artists make small moneys. people hear them at gigs, dig them, buy a cd for cheap (£3/4). it is then brimming with music and the poeple dig it and come to other gigs/ know other cool shit. its also about getting our home recordings heard.
we would like as much support as forest will give for this.
1)can we use (particulaly if i buy it (some one pm the place to get it from)) the multitrack cd burner.
2) we would like to use the cd printer.
3) we would like some moneyso as the cd can be mastered (around £50? maybe more less, the more money the more time spent on it = it sounds better)
4)we are more than happy to make it a forest records official release. that is infact cooler. forest can sell it and make the fucking money off it.
5) we will have a sweet launch party at forest with loads of sweet acts.
i feel forest should support this as much as possible as it is good and forest is good and in doing so will hopefully draw in some of my friends/other artisits to the forest sweet honey hive.
dig artists like (i love you too gorman)
(check "the ship that sailed")
many more cool shit also
if you want me to give you a cd of this i will.but i wait for the last few track listings to a come come my p.c
