After the good experience with Verkami with the book “ 1994-2012 Mensajes, anticanciones y poemas de kalle”, I decided to carry on with a new crow founding adventure in order to get resources for the release of this new album “Rude Station” without intermediaries, only you, me and the Rude Band.
Now you have the opportunity to make possible the release of this new album you have the key to make it possible. To me this is the most honest way to successfully complete the project. Why should we release anything that the public is not interested in?
“Rude Station” will be marked by the concept of “estación internacional de resistencia” (international resistance station) a place of communication in the ska-republik. We have already released the first song of this album, “Sarrera VII-Rude Station”, to help you knowing how the music, the lyrics and the musical environment will look like.
The main goal is to record and edit 500 cd-digipack (also in digital format).
The recording will take place during 10 days in Garate Studos, an idyllic place. The studio is placed in a fantastic country basque house. A wonderful area in a quiet place in the countryside where you can find sheep and cows grazing .And the walking legend, Kaki Arkarazo will be in charge of all technical support.
Peio Skalari, my blood brother and also my musical one during Skalari period will have a key role on this project helping with the album composition and arrangements. The same way of working. The same way of working that marked the creation of the old songs and albums:
Skalariak 1997 (Gor Discos), Klub Ska 1999 (Gor Discos), En la Kalle 2001 (Gor Discos), Radio Ghetto 2003 (Boa Music), Luz Rebelde 2005 (Boa Music).
So, after 9 years, both brothers are together in this train starting a new journey, this time with the Rude Band. A new formation to continue the adventure started with Skalari.
The mixing of the new and unpublished songs will be done in “Studio Bat”, Peio’s small recording new studio, located in Navarra de Arbizu. For the masterisation we will be back to Garate Studios, again with Kaki Arkarazo.
Special “Rude Station” T-Shirt
An essential part of the concept “Rude Station” will be the design of the cd-digipack (carton format) done by Carlos Undergroove. Carlos will recreate in a central panoramic pull-down the Rude Station, a fictitious place that we will convert to real.
The same thing we did with the albums “Klub ska” and “En la Kalle”. He has been already doing a great job with the logo and with everything: front and back covers, interior, design, attached, booklet, and so on.
This is the budget dedicated to the recording and edition:
• 6000 € for the recording of the album in the recording studio: includes recording gross cost in Garate Studios, travel and daily allowance, intrumentations,….
• 900 €, 500 cd-digipack edition
• 450 € album design, Rude Station pop-up photography
• 1000 € equipment needed to make possible a professional mixing in Studio Bat
• 1000 € shipping costs, T-shirts and gift items. Verkami receives 5% of the total.
As you can see, the budget is more than 9000€. Our goal is then to achieve 9000€ however if we collect 6500€ we will be able to launch the project.
Regarding the dates, recording, mixing and masteritations will be done by beginning of September. By beginning of October we will do the final master and the manufacture of the 500 cds-digipacks. At that time you will receive the rewards. If everything goes well that should be between 5 and 10 of October.
I will see you in the Rude Station!!!!
