You know how great the Jazz Butcher's music is. Now you can prove it by the price it fetches.
A recent eBay auction of the following 10 CDs:

Distressed Gentlefolk
A Scandal In Bohemia/Sex & Travel
Big Scary Planet
Condition Blue
Cult Of Basement
Fishcotheque
Illuminate
In Bath Of Bacon
Spooky
Waiting For The Love Bus

Commanded a price of $455.!

Perhaps someone in the music industry will see the green in the old JBC catalog and re-release some of these?

Or perhaps Mr. Fish can convince someone to establish a cottage industry selling CD copies? (Don't know if he has the rights to do this...)

With the above fat price for Jazz Butcher music, perhaps Mistah Fish could consider how many classical composers financed their compositions by selling "subscriptions" prior to publication to their die-hard fans. A new limited disc, with 3-6 new songs, with exclusive package signed by Mister Himself, would probably get more than enough people "subscribing" at $50-100 each to make it worthwhile. A series of these could help to finance the recording of a new full disc worth of material. Todays CD recording technology makes it feasible...

Think about it - you got people paying over $45. each for OLD music - how much would they be willing to pay for some NEW music!!

By the way, the SUMOSONIC website says "SEND MONEY ANYWAY," but doesn't give an address. I'm sure some folks would actually send bucks if they knew they were going right to the source...

Art, commerce - what a marriage!

Whatever it takes for some new tunes!
