Making money as a bard is hard work. You may think that those couple of copper you chuck at them across a campfire is enough to keep them in guitar strings and oversized trousers, but you'd be wrong. We've got bills to feed, mouths to pay, and we have... Certain expensive tastes.
We make a lot of our money by writing specific commissioned songs for people. Mostly people ask for mawkish love songs, of no interest to anyone except the recipient, but every now and then we get a commission that results in something interesting. In the course of the Brickstarter campaign for "Never Mind The Ologs" we wrote a few such songs. The patrons who commissioned them have kindly agreed to let us share them with you, for free!
All we ask for in exchange is:
- To consider paying some money anyway, because all our music costs more to record and release than you'd imagine and we're skint.
- To spend some time on our Bandcamp checking out our other stuff and to consider buying that. It's really very good.
- Your eternal adoration and devotion
- Your first-born child
