Thank you all SO much for putting your hard-earned cash towards this project! I feel more than ever like making it the greatest thing I can just so I can do your generosity justice!The album is so close to finished that I can smell it! Fingers crossed it will be in my hot little hands in physical, tangible form before the end of November, so that I can send them to you for Xmas, but there are sometimes unexpected things...After next week, I'm going to put my head down to getting some of your rewards together, so if those of you with a physical reward could email me your postal address (and what reward you had, along with any details of shirt size/preference...etc) that would be great! My email address is in the video - mwahaha! now you have to watch it! :)Much gratitude to you all, and I'll keep you posted with how it all goes!

Hey everyone! Getting pretty close to target now! Thank you all for being so incredibly generous with your donations. Hopefully we can drum up enough support to send it hurtling over the finish line... and beyond! (If donations keep going after the goal is reached, it'll just mean the production will be more amazing! So help spread the word!)Anyway, the main thing I wanted to say was that, to reward you for your kind efforts, I've made up a sneaky little SECRET playlist of ALL of the songs in their current form. That's right! ALL OF THEM! Including four that you've never, ever heard! I'd love it if you could keep it a bit of a secret for now (or at least direct people here to the campaign if they want a listen... and encourage them to donate! ;) - as they are all pretty rough and sound nowhere near as awesome as they will when they're recorded properly!And here it is: The Secret Link!Feel free to post any feedback in the comments section! I'd love to hear any thoughts or criticism :)Thine a mulching,Charlie.
Charlie Jones August 11, 2012First of all... Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!As tempting as it would be to sing Bon Jovi: 'Wooooahhh, we're half-way there!!' (more than halfway in fact!)... I give you: Principle One - Observe and Interact with this little ditty "Look Around", which will be the first track on the album! Enjoy!

First of all, WOW!!
My sincerest thanks and utter disbelief at the incredible support and generosity you have all shown in the first week!
I am slightly beyond being overwhelmed... so much so, that I have decided to move into the next gear with the project and have started to record some demos of the songs (which are about a million times better than the rough youtube clips!) that can be taken to the studio and worked from.
I figure I don't need a fancy studio to play around with the songs and polish the arrangements up, so I've just been knocking them up on the laptop in order to make the process easier when it comes time to lay down the real thing.
Please spread the word and share the campaign link to anyone you think might like the project. We are seriously going to make the Permaculture Rock Hall-of-Fame with this one!! :)
Keep on rocket in the free world,
