Compound Cal is Shameless.
As you likely know, I'm a musician who occasionally forces my songs on the CM public. Nobody stops me. How could they?
My longtime Texas band quit playing live in the late 90s, but over the past few years we've gathered in Nashville and Dallas to do some recordings. And we occasionally release a mediocre collection of songs.
We're doing this in 2013 as well, with a collection of new recordings we've worked on over the past 18 months.
We're trying to cover a tiny amount of production costs through the crowd-sourcing fund raising site Kickstarter.
We only have a couple of hundred bucks to go, and there are rewards for $20 and $50 pledges. If we fund the project, your credit card is charged and you get your CD and/or t-shirt in the mail in August. If the project misses its funding mark your card is not charged at all.
The link for more info is right here. (There's even a funny video.)
And to whet your appetite, here are a couple of mediocre, cobbled-together videos that simply provide some eye candy for the music. Both of these songs will be on the new, as yet untitled, disc.
Thanks to Les, a STRONG supporter of my band (thanks for the $50 pledge, you sweet thang), for letting me hawk the notion here so widely.

PS: And before anyone asks, no, we don't know Kate Bosworth.
