  1. Hey Craig, I thought I'd already explained this so not sure what's baffling about it.
  2. Also, I highly recommend kickstarter. Aside from the negative responses you get for using it,it is a brilliant alternative to traditional funding streams such as creative Scotland or banks,and has led to some amazing experiences and my record reaching people in the states.
  3. Thanks for your post Claire. As I've discussed with Jan and ewan privately, my issue isn't questioning my decisions but questioning my motives. I felt I've been open throughout and it hurt to be accused of defrauding people. That is what I felt was trolling. On the price point, it doesn't just come down to overheads of course and advice was sought and research carried out. I definitely don't ignore criticism and the price took into account someone mentioning on here that setting it far lower would have been unfair on those who backed at the premium reward level. While I disagree with you on the price that doesn't mean I'm ignoring the critique. I don't understand the surprise that a project to release a record then how'd to evolve into a label. Isn't that an obvious thing to do if this record is successful? Anyway,I genuinely appreciate the feedback and I'm sorry this thread has been derailed. Ewan and I have settled our difference,he was joking and I took it to heart. This project has been a rollercoaster and I'm ridiculously happy with the results. Feedback so far is that the record looks and sounds great and hopefully it'll be on sale in art galleries, record shops and other retailers soon. Of course I hope to sell all the copies, just cross those fingers!
  4. mastering and pressing, also most businesses factor in time to their costs, marketing, postage, stationary, other expenses. But I'm not allowed to, I'm clearly profiteering on my wee record that will probably sell to 30 mates and a couple of curious parties. All records must be produced to the same business model as Ewans or else they're not legit right?
  5. Thanks for your contribution ewan.

  7. as our Prime Minister I'd like to see him argue the case for the Union, as would many others. Naturally, this will play into Salmond's hands as Cameron isn't popular in Scotland but by avoiding the debate Cameron is just as guilty of playing upto that. The general consensus (apart from a few stubborn Better Together acolytes) seems to be that Salmond should debate Cameron or Michael Moore as Scottish Secretary in the event of Cameron declining, Sturgeon would debate Clegg/other senior party politicians, Canavan vs Darling, and the two Blairs. Can't this just happen and people stop posturing around the table? Funnily enough the only anti-english thing is you suggesting only Scottish people have a say
  8. Independence is an issue which needs to be debated by everyone, ordinary people and in an accessible way. It certainly shouldn't only be debated seriously by serious people, how awful would that be? yes it's a serious issue, but it certainly needs lighter moments too. My photos obviously reflect the part of the march I was in, the bit with serious politicians was very different and not at all relevant to the majority of people who aren't taking part in this debate. They marched behind a pipe band, in silence, arms folded in front of them. We sang across the North Bridge and made people smile, laugh and ask us questions. National Collective are trying to widen the debate and bring in people from both sides who aren't currently taking part, fair enough if you don't like what we're doing but there's a lot of people who have become more engaged through our work. Very few of us are hip. We just want people to imagine a better Scotland. Anything can happen after Independence, it's our chance to actually change the country! We may never have a chance to do that again. We would have all legislation created and controlled by those accountable to the people in our country, that is not happening now and it isn't on the table to ever happen.
  9. The Scottish Police Federation have since confirmed it was 20k + Also I was there, no way it was 8000. We'll have to disagree on Alan's poem.
  10. That could be said of most politicians surely? (see current immigration policy from most parties) The Royal Mail sell-off is an absolute joke and is opposed by the majority of the public, the majority of Scottish politicians and the majority of Royal Mail staff. There is no mandate for it and it will be of no benefit to the taxpayer or the public. We sell off the profits while keeping the pension liability. It will threaten universal service for anywhere outside of urban centres and lead to job losses across the country. Disaster. I also don't get why the No camp always portray this as a vote against Salmond (like Lamont over the weekend). Polls show he's the most popular politician in the country and the SNP would be elected again with a near landslide majority if the election was tomorrow, so why use that tactic to put people off the referendum? It's a bit strange. Independence isn't about Salmond or the SNP, it's about democracy and having the chance to do things differently. Anyhoo, the march was fun on Saturday. Here's a link to some photographs I took from the day for National Collective: http://nationalcollective.com/2013/09/22/documenting-yes-march-and-rally-for-independence-2013-part-1/ There was lots of great speeches from Patrick Harvie, Denis Canavan and Nicola Sturgeon but I think the highlight was Alan Bissett's poem - Vote Britain. Good fun day with between 20 and 30k people and the National Collective stall did a fine trade in t-shirts and badges all day and had some incredibly positive conversations about the possibilities for an independent Scotland. Seems most people genuinely want a fairer, greener and better country.
  11. hey man, certainly not, and apologies for not updating on here and kickstarter. if you check your emails there should be an update or click the link Neil posted. I've had an apology from the pressing plant but still no sign of the 2nd test pressing. All the money is accounted for and I have my own money put aside to pay for postage and any extra costs so there is no danger of this not happening, it's just out of my hands at the moment I haven't been logging into this site as much recently but if you have any questions just ping me an email david[at]daemonsmusic.co.uk or @davidofficer on twitter. I'll try and check here now and again but it's not the best way of reaching me.
