About The British IBM

Who are The British IBM?
The British IBM is a band and a labour of love that combines an interest in retro computing and indie rock. The band has been around since 2012, played lots of gigs, recorded 3 albums and had music used in various retro gaming related projects such as the 'From Bedrooms to Billions' documentaries, various YouTube channels and even some video games.

Why are we here?
The band generally runs at a loss due to the amount of money it costs to record music, make music videos (the decent ones at least), distribute music, host a website, drive to gigs, stay in hotels, book rehearsal rooms and all the other fun stuff that's required to do what we do. Which is all well and good as, like I said, it is a labour of love.

But! It would be cool to have a few coins coming in to help out and to make recording and playing live a bit easier and something that could happen more often.

What's in it for you?
Good question! Well imagine not having to wait three or more years between albums, that would be pretty cool right? Of course it would! We could be creative in a slightly more iterative way, recording songs throughout the year for you to listen to as soon as they're ready. We can give you access to behind the scenes antics, lyrics, demos, stream live performances and anything else that we can think of if things progress and the interest is there.

We know there are a few dedicated British IBM fans out there that send us nice emails, buy merch and help out from time to time, so hopefully this will be something that a few of you will be interested in and if it is then we promise to make it worth your while!
Goals
$108.19 of $200 per month
That's enough to help out with some studio time and record a song every month or two. We'll also start to perform a monthly "live streamed internet gig" where we'll play new material, along with some older stuff.
