Pat Badger, of Extreme, is working on his first solo album, and he's trying to get it funded through Pledge Music. Here's the link: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/badger

Doesn't sound too bad.

To (sorta) quote James Woods in The Hard Way: 'Not if you tied me by my tongue to the tailpipe of your car and dragged me naked over a field of broken glass.' :)

:rofl2:

 

I kinda feel the same way. Not about Pat Badger in particular, but this whole Kickstarter/Pledgemusic crowd-sourcing nonsense in general.

Off topic, that is one of my all time favorite movies!

I count that one amongst my faves, too. I picked up Stephen Lang's Avatar figure just because of his role as Party Crasher. I remember Michael J Fox stating in an interview about how they all expected the Hard Way to be a runaway blockbuster and had only mild expectations for Doc Hollywood and yet the reverse occurred. The Hard Way is must see viewing for those who have yet to see it!

Its a brilliant way to do it. Not only does it ensure a band can afford to make an album, it also allows people who pledge early access to the album and a whole bunch of other exclusive bits n pieces.

Its hardly nonsense considering how well it works.

Is paying up front to get the album made any different to preordering a CD and paying up front?

If they reach their target you get your album and whatever else you pledge for. If they dont reach their target, you dont get anything and no money is taken from your account.

Yeah, I'm all for crowd-funded projects.

Well... I don't like this

For real? I mean, I know a lot of guys aren't gonna love this, but it isn't offensive to the ear either.

Yeah not offensive to the ear, can't put it into technical terms but it just doesn't grab me. I usually like crowd-funding etc. makes a good release more ''special'' to have an additional sort of connection to it but will not be supporting this one cause there's just so much other stuff I'd rather listen to.

 

I recently made a pledge to the Nasty Habit Kickstarter project for financing their next EP, didn't really like the last album they put out but I figured their next release would / could be better cause I think they have potential (mostly production-wise) so I just went for it. But it's not looking to good so far they only reached about 1/3 of their goal...

I've heard a few of the new Nasty Habit tunes.. I've got to say that the new ones are better than the ones from the first release. Seems like the songs are constructed better. You've got to remember how young they are, I don't think any of them are older than 20.

Got nothing against crowd-funded projects ... but this does nothing for me ...

Cool, you see them live or heard demos? What you said, ''constructed better'' that's exactly what I was thinking / hoping they would do next time around.

 

P.S. Anybody know if the total goal for a project can be found on pledgemusic? Can't seem to find it for example on kickstarter and indiegogo you always see how much the goal is.

I got nothin' against Pat Badger or this project... if he's got enough fans willing to fund it, then good on him.

 

That seems like a mighty big "if" though... realistically, are there really THAT many people out there saying to themselves, "You know what the world really needs? A solo album by the bass player from Extreme!"??

 

Just sayin'.

I get what you're saying, and I agree. I'm not blown away by this. It's a nice piece of Melodic Rock, but I have not funded this, nor will I.

The sound cloud for the first song doesn't work anymore, but I'll admit I like this tune plenty enough. I hadn't ever even checked this thread out for all the interest it instilled in me, but I'm a little interested now.

    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-
