7″ Fiction – Update

16 Mar

First limited run of 7″ fiction will be 10 copies of It’s a Shame about Evan Dando (B-Side Instrumental), the number of the run determined by the number of sleeves I’ve just bought on EBay:

I was originally going to put them into plain white paper sleeves, but after searching around for a pack of these and finding some original ones on sale for around the same price, I changed my mind.

These won’t be for sale though. I’m putting them together to take around with me to any readings I do over the next couple of months. If anyone wants one, they can have one. Most people probably won’t…

What this does mean though is that every piece of writing in the series (am planning on doing up to about 9 or 10 over time) will be in a different sleeve. Which actually, I like the idea of. Exciting times. Just need to get the booklets printed now and we’re away.

    This is great stuff. Instrumental was a good b-side too.

    If you have enough stories you could do ‘CD1’ and ‘CD2’ of the same single, like they did in the 90s to push things up the charts. At least one CD just had shite remixes on though, so not sure how you’d replicate that…

      Thanks James. Yeah, for the next one I definitely want to do an A-Side and the B-Side as a remix. How exactly that works I don’t know yet. It probably just means putting the paragraphs in a different order and picking one line to repeat over and over again…
