Pledge to get a GBC record

March 11, 2010

Kickstarter is a funding platform for all kinds of projects. Anyone who wants to raise money for a project can use it to fund the project, and usually get cool rewards.

Get Busy Committee is making a vinyl picture disc for “I Don’t Care About You” / “Say Whaaat?” From anywhere in the world, if you pledge money to the project (AKA help pay to get it made), you’ll get cool stuff (including the picture disc with the songs). The top 100 people to pledge $50 get a phone call from GBC.

What makes this special, you say? It contains three unreleased tracks including one written/recorded for this promotion ABOUT one of the purchasers. It was a pledge of $1000 to get that special prize…and someone bought it immediately. Pretty cool…but only if the project gets fully funded. In other words, they need GBC fans to pledge to get the project done.

If you’re a GBC fan, go to the link below to pledge (it’s not like you don’t get anything–it seems like everyone will get something, I think).  I hope this thing goes all the way…I want to hear what kind of song these guys will write about their “biggest fan.” HA

Go here to pledge.

And BTW, if you’re going to SXSW, Get Busy committee is playing.

    Mike the last studio update was cool! I was wondering if you guys can shoot more of that and let us see more of the band, not to mention to press any buttons and leak anything. =P

    word, I copped it. I just busted out my Dad’s old school 70’s Pioneer deck today and it still works. Hopefully this project gets funded. Thanks for the heads up.

    Got an email about SXSW in every account. Sorta hoping it was gonna say ‘…and we’ll pay for your ticket’. No chance. I wonder if the room is made out of a velveteen bear. or cheese? Maybe. I’d pledge but I think I have a dime and three pennys to my name. …and despite popular belief (I guess) I’m not kidding. When I get money* I would be happy to contribute.

    It’s nice to see some musicians out there who are just as gracious to fans as LP. But, just wondering, what ever happened to Tak and Skully? I know that there were issues regarding Machine Shop and all, but, are the Styles of Beyond guys really disbanded for good? It’s a shame if that’s the case, because they have tons of potential together. Tak is the only rapper I know of who can make the phrase “cut the crap” sound badass.

  15. Frannie on March 11, 2010 at 12:47 pm

    You should do the “pledge” thing too. Your a big fan of GBC right?

  16. TheGlueLpFan on March 11, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    OMLP!!! I read about it yesterday! I’m so freaking excited! Its soooo cool😀 I love those guys and I wish I can see ’em live one day too. Although it’s higly unlikely they’ll ever come to Greece:/

    PS. You like the art of Alexandros Vasmoulakis, right? I remember you posted about him a couple months ago. Well, here’s the thing: A movie (greek movie) is about to come out in cinemas here about the story of his art. It’s called “Art Therapy”. I think you might like it. Check it out🙂

  23. Calliope on March 11, 2010 at 9:33 am

    Well, I say that you should give $1000!!!😀 You are a huge fan and it will be easy for the guys to write a song about you and people would like to hear it too!😉 What do you think?😛
