We all listen to records or artists that we think are under-rated. For some it's even a kind of strange pleasure to know that you like something undeniably awesome that is underappreciated. This podcast was born from that pleasure.

www.unsungpod.net

In 2017 we (that is, Mark Fraser, Chris Cusack and David Weaver - three music obsessed men from Glasgow, Scotland) started this podcast to create a discography of records we felt were unsung classics. At the time, we were in a very fortunate position with regards to things like recording equipment and studio space. But times have changed, and now we've been recording in a living room, using gear that we purchased out of our own pocket and with some helpful contributions from some very generous people. 

Which is absolutely fine - we know we ain't gonna get our money back, and that's cool. We're eternally thankful to those of you who have been gracious enough to gift us some cash - but we do want to expand, and in order to do that we need a little bit of capital.

We have plans to grow this podcast beyond just the three of us sitting in a room talking nonsense about records we think are unsung. We'd love to make some merch, do some videos on YouTube, expand into short documentary films that explore some of the genres we cover in more depth, and to maybe, just maybe, break even.

So far we've been incredibly fortunate to have picked up some fans along the way, fans who have been generous enough to donate something via PayPal. Which means we've become pretty adept at creating bonus content, taking the suggestions of our fans and making bespoke content for them and them alone. We'd love for you to join with them and help us by chucking a little cash our way so we can grow this damn thing without having to resort to advertising. 

Help ya bois out. We promise we'll make it worth your while.

In return you will get the rewards listed on the right. Here are some of the bonus episodes you will get (we're always open to ideas for more too, by the way):

Split 7" - you give us a musical topic to discuss and we'll do an episode on it. Previous ones included best closing tracks, the perfect Unsung music festival, good records from bad bands and more.

Mixtapes - we do mixtapes as part of our normal show on a regular basis, but what if we did more? You'll get access to those.

Sound is a Pound - we go into Poundland, see what we can get for a quid and review the results for you, our adoring fans. 

We want to do other kinds of experimental content too. Such docuseries, episodes that focus on one artist, or on one movement, and we'd really love to do some stuff on YouTube too.

All you gotta do is help us out. We start from as little as $2 a month and every little bit goes into this wee show.
