We offer “Rare Materials Every Month” to our patrons pledging more than $5.
So what the “rare materials” will look like?
In order to write this I had to look into my HD drive, some old CD-R disks and older archive.
One thing we can offer is “demo version” of the songs.
We usually make demo tracks before working on songs.
Demo version of already released songs, and unreleased songs that you have never heard.
They are often instrumental (without vocals) because I tend to write lyrics later than the song itself.
Also we have some “unreleased songs” that was recorded properly but didn’t end up on finished albums.
There is a reason those songs didn’t make it on the album, maybe the lyrics, maybe some sound issue, maybe performance quality, or maybe just didn’t fit to the album.
But I think they are still good music and it will be a fresh find for you.
Another thing is live recordings and movies.
We have posted some of them on YouTube but we have a lot more.
Some of them are really good and I think you will like it.
There is also materials from my “teenage days”.
Those songs and demo tracks, most of them are lost in the MTR tapes from 1990s, but some of them are still in my head.
I can make them into newly made demo tracks.
There is also photos and flyers that have never been published on the internet.
All those things I can show you with the behind-the-scene stories. I think you will enjoy them.
In anyway we have a long history as an indie band and we have done a lot of “unreleased” projects.
I don’t think we will run out of those “rare materials” in next 5 years!!
(If we do, we can make some new “rare tracks” doing occasional blues jam and abstract sound tracks. I think it will be interesting.)
If it’s a song, it will be posted as an “audio post” with a downloadable mp3 file.
If it’s a video, it will be posted with an exclusive link to YouTube/Vimeo.
You can find those posts with “Rare Materials” tag.
We will dive deep into our vault and find something exciting for you.
So stay tuned.
Let’s listen to the untold story of this one of a kind Japanese Christian band!
