Wud Records: 11-11-11

To celebrate today’s extraordinary conglomeration of triangles that took place at 11 minutes and 11.11 seconds past 11 on the 11-11-11 and to commemorate all those that fell during war on this day of remembrance, we have decided to change the prices of all of our music that is for sale at Bandcamp.

Now you can decide to pay what you think a track or album is worth, even if that is absolutely nothing at all. Hooray! Simply name the price you wish to pay when you select an album or track. If you put a zero we ask only for your email address, which is used for our own confidential records and never shared with anyone else at all.

As our customers know, when a piece of music receives an engineering upgrade we email the upgraded file for free to everyone who paid for it. We will continue to do this for everyone who pays for music, although not for those who download for less than 89% of the price threshold we set for each item.

We will review this situation either after 111 free downloads or at the end of 2011, whichever happens sooner.

Why 111 you may ask. Well, on this numerically peculiar day 11-11-11 we can reveal an interesting fact about the number 111. Not only does it make English cricket fans put their feet on the table and hope for another run, it is also extra special in this year of 2011. If you take the last two digits of the year of your birth and add them to your age, no matter how old you are, the result will be 111. Somebody born in 1930 will be 81. 81 + 30 = 111. Somebody born in 1978 will be 33. 33 + 78 = 111. And so on. Try it on yourself!

Also, to demonstrate the shape of things to come, we have uploaded the recently-twiddled Live in Session Autumn 1985 collection from Laughing Sun to Bandcamp and in the coming days, weeks and months will be transferring a lot more of our material to Bandcamp for you to download.
