We’ve kept close tabs on Giant Drag’s shifting lineup and taste in covers, and all along the comments have made clear that you guys would love to get to know Annie Hardy a little better. So, here’s your chance: Annie wants you to buy her a sandwich! And also, to fund her next record. See, Interscope sort of dropped Giant Drag, and while many artists would consider that a good thing, there’s still the little issue of paying for studio time. Here’s Annie’s request:
Annie posted this to MySpace (via BV):
would you like to help make the next giant drag album?
many of you send messages asking when its coming (the album, that is) and since being dropped from Interscope took away the money part of the equation you can see it is taking a very long time. some people have recommended i put up a paypal donation button to help speed this process up (and help me eat the occasional sandwich if i’m lucky) so finally today, with the help of my new intern audrey, the donation button has arrived!
thanks to the genius who invented the intern (free labor in exchange for a college credit?! i’ll take two please!) i now have outside help to get my record, record label and interweb stuff up and running. soon there will be a giant drag ebay store where you can buy all my stuff because i’m not going to have any place to keep my stuff if i don’t start making money soon, so you can have it!
i should mention that people who make extra generous donations will receive extra special surprises but i can’t tell you what they are or it wouldn’t be a surprise, now would it? so if you feel like giving up a buck or a million of them i’d be very grateful! even if its just because you are riddled with guilt from illegally downloading the first album and you feel the need to repent, any reason will do and every penny counts.
Doesn’t look like Annie’s promising a cut of the profits commensurate to your contribution, but come on silly there are no profits in music anymore. So open the wallet and help the Drag by donating here.
