So, we have clearance from MCPS, the tracks and album are registered and cleared with PPL so if by any chance they get played on the radio or telly, everyone gets their cut and if I sell loads of copies I am eligible to chart. (haha).
Grant has finished the pre-final final so all I need to do now is listen to it a few more times and hopefully there will be no more changes required. Stuart has just about finished the artwork and is compig round with a copy for final adjustments. So with any luck I’ll be sending it off to the duplicators very soon, maybe by the end of the week!
When they get it, it’s two weeks to manufacture and then I will have an awful lot of selling to do. It’s been a long old road, and I’ve learned so much.
I just hope you like it, I hope it achieves some success, not least so I can get some money back.

But to be honest, the most important thing in all of this is that I have finally made the album I wanted to hear, that has been in my head for so long, and that I found so hard to explain. Ad soon you’ll hear it too.

To paraphrase Tim Minchin : “This is my album, and it’s fine, it’s where I’ve spent the vast majority of my time. It’s not perfect. But it’s mine”.

It’s been another while. Not really even sure who reads this, to be honest but here goes. I now have my notification of no claim from MCPS, I have registered my “record label” with PPL and got ISRC codes for the songs. I’m now in the process of assigning the musicians to the songs so that if by some miracle any of this ends up on the radio or tv or whatever, everyone gets their dues. It’s taking time as it is fiddly and annoying but it will be worth it and it has to be done.
I have my barcode and am very nearly done with the artwork. Stuart is just putting some finishing touches to the text and then we are about set. Hopefully will hear from Grant soon that the mastering is complete and then the whole lot will be sent off for duplication. So we’re talking weeks now not months.
Samples of some tunes will be made available on Myspace soon.

Go ahead and buy please!!
