passeridae: the 'true' sparrows of the old world.

the passeridae subscription series is designed to team
a bunch of our favourite australian artists
with some of their likeminded overseas counterparts.

each subscriber will receive twelve hand-numbered 7" singles
across the final half of 2008, pressed on coloured vinyl and packaged in
hand-silkscreened, recycled chipboard sleeves
(courtesy of our buddies at stumptown printers.)

as well, every subscription includes a free 2xCD-R compilation
featuring every track from the singles - 24 in all - packaged
in classic sound & fury wax-sealed envelopes.

there will be other surprises throughout the year as well,
but we're keeping mum about those for now.

Price:
Australia: AU$160
Rest of World: AU$220 (= £95 / 110 Euro / US$145)

Note to international customers:
Records will be sent in four batches of three
to save on postage costs.
This means you shouldn't expect to receive
your first package until early 2009.
Apologies for any inconvenience,
but international postage rates are
through the roof these days.

I got this email today in regards to the Passeridae subscription series....

"A lot of people have been asking us about the future of the Passeridae series lately. And with good reason - it's been years since we initially announced the project, and to date only two records have surfaced. So the fact that some of you are getting antsy about the remaining ten volumes isn't surprising at all. So we thought it was time to lay it all out and let everyone know exactly why things have gone so pear shaped.

The truth is that we didn't sell nearly as many records as originally hoped/planned, meaning that the money we received from subscribers barely covered the cost of pressing the first two instalments. Therefore, we've been trying - with no success - to raise the necessary funds to press the remaining ten records. Our non-label income is meagre at best, which makes saving for something as expensive as pressing a 7" difficult.

Passeridae was a massive project. Too massive, perhaps. But it was undertaken with the best of intentions. If we could do this all over again, we'd definitely scale down our ambition - and our optimism. But what's done is done, and what matters is the future. We will, no matter what, release all twelve volumes of the Passeridae series. Most of the artists have already sent in their tracks; the fact that these songs are sitting on a hard-drive right now instead of being out there for the world to hear kills us (and them). It really does. But the label's financial situation is pretty dire right now; we're running at an astronomical loss, and while we're doing everything we can to bring it back into the black, we're still not gaining any ground. Until we either win the lottery, find an abandoned suitcase of money or sell the hundreds of records currently sitting on the floor of S&F HQ (ie. my loungeroom), it's going to remain a struggle.

To all the patient subscribers out there, rest assured that we're not trying to rip anybody off. All the money received from subscriptions subscribers went to pressing the Moonmilk/MCIAA and Klumpes/Machinefabriek records (which at a cost of over AU$3,000 all up, was much more than we raised). We are truly sorry for the delay, and we hope that the wait for these records will be worth it.

If anybody has any further questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to email us."

A total bummer in more ways than one.
