A CALL TO ARMS FROM ALABAMA 3
A CALL TO ARMS FROM ALABAMA 3
'Alabama 3 are a seminal band. Their new album is their best yet.' Alan McGee, founder of Creation Records.
'I love it. It's fucking brilliant.' Martina Cole
A Message from the Spirit of Love, Minister for Propaganda
YOUR COUNTRYACIDHOUSE NEEDS YOU
On May the third 2010 Alabama 3's first independently produced album will be released on our own label, Hostage Music.
Throughout our 15 year career the only thing that kept us going is the fierce and affectionate loyalty of our audience. You've seen us through the bemusement of record labels, the censorship of 'media', and the mental instability of band members. Many of our generation have fallen; you have chosen to keep us alive.
They've called us buffoons, fancy dressers, pseudo-revolutionaries. Maybe. But we're not stupid, and neither are you. You know our Day-Glo Afro hides a pulsating brain. And behind our Pink Squirty flower, a purple heart, beating with love for you, our comrades.
Storm clouds are gathering. You need us, more than you know. And we need you now, more than ever.
'Revolver Soul', Alabama 3's Eighth Studio album has been entirely self-produced and self financed. The freedom this has given us has allowed us to create a work of monstrous beauty, Deeper, Darker, Stronger and Stranger than anything you've heard us do before. But this time we're on our own. Alabama 3 needs YOU.
Ask not what your COUNTRYACIDHOUSE can do for you.
Ask what you can do for your COUNTRYACIDHOUSE.
How much do you LOVE us? Would you like to see our ravaged faces on the cover of Q magazine? Would you like to make us so much money that we're using MDMA crystal as bath salts? Would you like to see us gangbanging Jedwood on primetime TV using a Mojo Award as a dildo and be able to say 'I put them there?' Then we invite you to join:
THE ARMY OF LOVE
MISSION: OPERATION GET THE ALABAMA 3 IN THE FUCKING CHARTS
We have calculated, with the aid of a personal computer, exactly what it would take to put us in the top 10 Album chart. And IT’S EASY!
IF EVERY ALABAMA 3 FAN BUYS THE ALBUM IN THE FIRST WEEK OF RELEASE WE WILL HIT THE TOP TEN. WITH A BULLET!!!
The Army of Love is REAL. Anyone joining will be regarded as COMRADE in arms. They will be given PRIVILAGES, and for those who give of themselves beyond the call of duty, SPECIAL SECURITY STATUS.
Here's how it works:
1 Anyone buying the album in the first week will be given a special code allowing them to download a SECRET BONUS TRACK (Details will be on the website.)
2 Comrades can help spread the word by joining the ARMY OF LOVE. Send your name and address to email@example.com and you will be duly enlisted.
3 Recruits will be issued, FREE of charge, a PROPAGANDA pack of leaflets and posters to be disseminated to the masses, together with a free Alabama 3 bag, travel card wallet, and BADGES!!!
4 We will be selecting a crack team of 4 RECRUITING AGENTS for each gig of the tour. These recruits will have SPECIAL SECURITY CLEARANCE. They will meet the band, and if they show exceptional dedication, be personally and tenderly DE-BRIEFED by D.Wayne Love...
5 Recruits will be subject to a random selection procedure that will confer SPECIAL SECURITY CLEARANCE to the 'Revolver Soul' ALBUM LAUNCH PARTY.
Remember: IF EVERY ALABAMA 3 FAN BUYS THE ALBUM IN THE FIRST WEEK OF RELEASE WE WILL HIT THE TOP TEN.
WITH A BULLET
On Christmas Day 2009, Rage against the machine proved that corporate control of music could be defeated by grass-roots action. Help us keep that momentum. One more push of the download button could set a VERY BIG BALL in MOTION. Push that button people, and send us all to KINGDOM COME.
ARE YOU A SOLDIER IN THE ARMY OF LOVE?
It's your mission. It's online.
Start thinking soldier.
Join the Army of Love by mailing your name and address to:
We will send you a welcome pack of Alabama 3 goodies, and (UK and Ireland only) a pack of leaflets, stickers and posters to distribute in your area. Spread the Love.
We will also be putting a special poster online for you to download and print.
Everyone who joins will be entered into a draw to receive an invitation to the Revolver Soul Private Launch Party!
If you would be willing to help collect recruits at tour gigs, please let us know which gig you could get to. We will select a certain number of volunteers to cover each gig.
We will keep you informed of future missions…
