Kid Canaveral and added value

Not strictly related to The A Forest, but I got my pre-order package of the Kid Canaveral album in the post this morning, and as you can see from the picture it’s a nice wee bundle. For a tenner plus postage you get the CD album, a cassette single of “You Only Went Out To Get Drunk Last Night” featuring a couple of remixes (including one from Kwaing Creasite), a fanzine-style lyric booklet and a couple of badges. I can’t imagine any of these cost that much extra to produce, but it’s a nice touch and I think a good way to encourage people to get involved early.

Of course Kid Canaveral are not the first band to take this approach, but I think that these days its become more and more important to throw in little extras to help stand out and give people a little something extra. I’ve been thinking of ways to make the physical version of our album a little more appealing as I get closer to placing orders and making commitments, but I think the physical product is going to be quite appealing in itself.

So, if there’s anyone out there reading, what do you think?

  1. I think as the album will almost certainly be a collector’s item, the more pleasant and aesthetically pleasing the physical product is, the better. A reward for the patience of our dedicated fans, if you will.

    Prince recently announced the end of the internet after all, so it MUST be true. Physical product is back, baby.
