      Think you should put the cover artwork from the comps on the Garagepunk (spreadshirt) store, make a few more bucks for the Hideout.

      I think one of the main (preventative) issues with doing vinyl is each band would want some, and we're talking about 22 bands on the first volume alone. If every band wanted five copies for themselves and then another ten to sell, that would be 15 x 22 = 330 copies right there. Then you'd need at least another couple hundred to sell via brick & mortar stores and mail order. So even a minimum of 500 pressing would be pretty costly, and would mean very little profit for whatever label decided to take this on. 500 copies will cost around $1,300 at United. That's roughly $2.60 each (cost). I guess you could sell the bands their copies at cost (some may not like this, though, and expect their copies for free), which means you *should* (if all the bands actually come through and pay for 15 copies each) make $858 back relatively soon, but then you'd have only 170 copies left over to sell or use as promo and try to make a little profit to make it worthwhile. Even if you sell all 170 for $10 each, that's only $1,258. And I'm not even including packaging costs, postage (including international shipping), and the time it would take to take orders, box them up, invoice them, send them out, track sales at stores, etc. It's more than I would want to take on (especially for multiple volumes), that's for sure.

      This is the reality that all indie record labels face, obviously, but asking a label that had absolutely no hand in compiling the album to take all this on (and again, 5+ volumes' worth) is asking quite a lot!

      just finishing listening to it for the first time. Great job! Lots of cool stuff that I'll be hanging on to. Our band will get around to submitting something in the coming months - working on getting a good enough recording together. Thanks for all the work on the hideout.

      There seems to be something wrong with my page. I can't sign out, leave garage punk to try again, change my profile theme, or find the compilation download. Every time I close the site, and then come back, I'm still signed in. So whatever you can do... I tried sending this through mail and chat, and it still will do nothing. Sorry to do this through a forum, but I can't post anywhere else.

      I'm having my first listen to Volume One... it's excellent! Much more variety in 'style department' than I expected. A wide range of Garage Punk, something for every lover of FUZZ.

      Hats off to Kopper, so far so good!

      Just wanted to say thanks for including my band, Undercover Bonobos, on the series. I think we're on #3, or was it 4? Can't find the email. But, thanks! Going to grab #1 now.

      Big Bonobo love,
      G. Wood

      hey, kopper...

      can you let us know about how many new members since this morning?

      guess many people joined to download the record for free! :)

      Hell yeah! Did I say this before? Hipping people in America and Europe to buy it (and review it...).


      km: Hey, thank you! All I did is smear some ink on the cover :)

      Well, kopper, I did listen to it, and I did find some tracks that I really liked.  They were 1, 2, 4, 16, 17 (Love the song title, BTW), 19, 20, 21 and 22.  I especially appreciate the Cynics being included in the first compilation, since they're now my favorite home town band (Most of my other favorite local bands are now defunct).

       

      I'm looking forward to all the subsequent compilations.

      Found it on Amazon! It'd be cool if some people could review it there (wink, wink):
