Live album in the works! Can you help?!

Hi everyone,

It’s been a long time between drinks here at Chez Gin Club.  After a successful tour in June (thanks Adelaide, Hobart, Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, Toowoomba and Brisbane!) we’ve been a bit quiet, but we’re gearing up for another surge late in 2011.  We have a couple of shows planned for December (check out the gigs sections for more details) and we’ll be using them to launch a new album. And not just any album, a LIVE ALBUM!!    Over the last few years we’ve been recording many of our gigs around Australia, and we’ve accumulated quite the archive of awesome shit, so we’ve finally found time to sit down and go through it all, pick out the choicest cuts and assemble them for your listening pleasure.

‘Awesome’, you say, ‘what can we do to get this masterpiece out there?’  Funny you should ask, because this time around we’re asking for your help to make this happen. Rather than borrow more money from the ever-struggling record industry, we’ve decided to try the crowd-sourcing approach.  Basically you can pre-order the live album (in a range of formats, including VINYL, yes!) and the money you chip in will help us get the project mixed, mastered, manufactured and delivered, right to your hot little hands.  You’ll also get a special ‘thank-you’ in the credits to acknowledge your support, and there’s a range of other merchandise up for grabs as well.

If this sounds like the kind of thing you’d like to be involved in, head over to Indie GoGo and check out the Great Gin Club Live Album Swindle.  We really appreciate the help.

In other news, our very own Ben Salter heads off on tour today to launch his new solo album, The Cat.  If you’re in Sydney, Wollongong, Melbourne, Ballarat or Hobart you can expect him down your way any day now – have a look at his website for more details.

That’s all from us for now.   Thanks for your ongoing support, and hope to see you at a show soon.

Bridget, Conor, Ben, Dan, Gus, Adrian, Scott, Ola & Brad.
