Jules -

I love you man - but I don't know about this.

1) how many people are going to spend $100 per band?

2) without sales verification I think these numbers could be highly suspect (they are from Chicago afterall LOL!).

as much as I appreciate your enthusiasm for new models, and DIY - and - as much as I respect this band/dude for the effort (good for them) I just don't know how sustainable a model like that is...

what I do think is smart about it however, is giving the early adopters something special - like they're angel financiers... that part is cool, the rest seems suspect.

It looks interesting, but in a big scale means that if you like 10 bands you need to spend in advance 1000 $. And what if i dont like the second album?

I think a band needs to keep updating the story during the years, as Chris Blackwell from island records said. You need to motivate people every month and every year.

I found it very interesting, this guys are reading the music 2.0 thing. I'm not saying is the ultimate method, but a great example of what can be done.

i suspect another "band makes X thousand dollars" marketing campaign backed by something like Icebreaker.... why do these things turn up every few months?

well - time will tell. Hope its real.

Just a news item!

As usual look behind hype for substance and worth!

It's working for them. I just watched this band with a major label A&R who loved the band and the show. They have a strong niche fan base and they put on a show synced with a nintendo controller. It's completely bizarre and unique and it attracts a unique crowd of loyal fans.
