We are scraping every possible source for the dosh to make the Video for Afraid of the Dark and in the process opening up our production books so that you, the awesome ones, get to work with us... The Contagious!!
You can contribute for t-shirts and CD's if you want, but the gold, the REAL GOLD (Jerry!) is the opportunity to write and record with us!
Our production team had a "d'OH!" moment and realised this is what you guys really want so we're making it happen
Get Together and Pool Party!!
There are 24 hrs left to help us across the line!!!
What you guys dont know when you buy our music is that we dont see a single cent from the online stores for at least 3 months, and they have usually taken a more than generous sum out of the little that we get so we decided to solve this (with your help) -
ANNOUNCING THE DOWNLOAD 2 TRACKS FOR $1 SO WE CAN MAKE A MUSIC VIDEO WITH THE MONEY WE MAKE AND PUT IT DIRECTLY TOWARDS IT
What We Need & What You GetWe need enough money to make the awesomest shoestring budget music video for you the fans! So besides the rubber chickens, well need;
$2500aud for a videographer
$500 for tech, food; and
$1000 for flames and explosions!!
(and maybe $3.50 for the loch ness monster... nm)
So besides the awesome perks thattaway ------------------------------------>
Im including SUPER MEGA BONUS LEVEL AWESOMENESS (ess... ess..)
If we reach the $2,000, I will get the Contagious double-chi symbol tattooed onto my shoulder/arm!
At $4,000 I will get it done over my entire back! Permanent, and awesome. Imagine little ole me with a full back tattoo? Crazy shiznit.
And in the event we reach 10,000... um i'll have to get back to you...
All joking aside, we are a mainly privately funded concept that doesnt gig live; in fact most of us are rarely in the same room at the same time. Since I blew my tax cheque on boring things like the mortgage and food I dont really have enough to make this happen.
Like Waiting for the Rain, Afraid of the Dark is something ive kept locked in the vault like a crazy short 80's act in Paisely Park so taking it out and dusting it off is going to be one of the highlights of my writing career.
Tim is back, and so are Adam and Myself, and friends from all over are contributing bits and pieces everywhere.
