So last year, I released a compilation CD for promotion purposes for my radio show, Generic Insight Radio.
The comp has 23 bands including The Gaslight Anthem, Jena Berlin, Capital, The Arsons, Dear Tonight and OnGuard... yes, Jason Shevchuk's OnGuard.
Aside from the Johnny Cash tribute soon, my comp is the ONLY official release of any sort of recorded OnGuard material. Jason was awesome enough to give me an exclusive song ("It's Like Blaming Cupcakes") and it became even more-so after he disbanded the OnGuard project shortly after he sent the song to me/the comp went off to press.
So here's the deal. Right now I'm working on releasing GIR Vol. 2 which will be hopefully released early next year. That said, I still have a bunch of leftover copies of Vol. 1 sitting in my closet collecting dust.
I brought a bunch down to the Fest last year and unsuccessfully tried to sell it. Apparently, hocking CD's to random people at shows is harder than it looks... most folks don't even care how cheap it is or who is on it. I had a number of people brush me off and walk away the second I pulled a cd out.
So that said, I'm gonna bring some more down this year and try something a bit different. I'm posting this info here, and if this comp is interesting to you and you want to purchase one from me, reply here or shoot me a PM. I will then PM you with my cell phone number and at ANY point during Fest weekend, you can call or text me and just let me know if you would like to meet up with me somewhere and buy a CD.
THE CD IS ONLY 3-5 DOLLARS, SLIDING SCALE! Pay what you can afford!
^Go there for the track listing.
If you are interested in one, reply here or PM! Help me clear these things out of my basement and get ready for volume 2! I will also have free stickers promoting my radio show!
