It's time for a change folks. The cheapness of my releases in conjunction with the fun (but perhaps idiotic) Freddy Point system is starting to do more harm than good for this label. Instead of scrapping the idea altogether I've decided to retool and figured I'd post my progress here. I know there will be a ton of gripes regarding this but there's not much I can do if I'm to remain a functioning label. So here's draft one. Once I feel 100% solid, these changes will be in place instantly. The new Freddy Points will be printed by the end of the month. Hope you understand.
So here goes nothing:
"8 points - Any 7" of your choosing 10 points - Any single CD or single LP of your choosing 14 points - Any two CDs or one Double LP of your choosing 20 points - Combination of the 14 pointer, but add 2 free concert tickets to any Graveface related show. 30 points - One Graveface related silkscreen poster mailed to you in a poster tube. Will be pulled from my archive of hundreds of show posters. All of them out of print. This can be autographed if you'd like. 40 points - One Graveface tshirt. Any size you want. This will be handmade and one of a kind. 50 points - One of a kind VHS made for you by a Graveface artist. This will include everything it shouldn't and a few things it should. 65 points - One test pressing (hand-numbered 1/1) + you get to dictate the color combination of a Graveface release of your choice. 70 points - A customized piece of artwork by William Schaff made for you! 80 points - A song for you & you only by a Graveface artist. This will be personally created for you. 100 points - Graveface gift box. This will contain a ton of weird Graveface related and unrelated things as well as some releases long out of print, test pressings etc. The box will be handmade and handpainted & you'll be able to store your Graveface releases in it. 150 points - A Graveface artist of my choosing (based on where you live) will show up to your house & perform a set of music for you and your family/friends.
If you are holding a Freddy Point/catalogue that is gold instead of white, the value of this one individual point is 25 points. If you have any questions about what you see above, hit me up: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for your support!"
So that's how I see things as of now. Considering Record Club folks will get up to 30 points or so each go round it will not take that long to get some of these. Plus, for each format and each release, there will be 5 gold points randomly inserted.
We'll see how long this version will last. Before you flame me too hard, keep in mind these points are free . As always, thanks for your support.
went home and re-counted my freddy points last night. i want that VHS!! hahaha
