Electric Six have launched their latest Kickstarter. Entitled ‘A Very Electric SiXmas & Chill Out!’ it features two discs: the first will be a 12-track Christmas album and the second an acoustic live album.
Backer bonuses include a second karaoke disc, t-shirt, Christmas stocking, personal drunken phone call from DV and much more.
Electric Six is proud to announce its latest Kickstarter campaign today. Entitled “A Very Electric SiXmas & Chill Out!,” this is a two disc set comprised of two very different sets of material. The first disc is E6’s first ever attempt at an old chestnut, the holiday record. Our cover of “You’re A Mean One, Mr. Grinch” for The Onion’s AV Club several years ago has been a holiday favorite with the Crazies and we’ve decided that it’s time for an entire record filled with soon to be magical songs and memories associated with the holiday seasons. We’ve indicated a few of the songs we’re going to do in the campaign, but there’s room for many, many more to come. Some of those will be selected by us and some by you, the Crazies, as part of the campaign.
The second disc, the “Chill Out!” record, is another new venture for us. Dick Valentine has been doing live acoustic performances for several years, and he often includes E6 songs in his set. We’ve decided to perform and record a live acoustic set by the entire band. We’re doing it on March 21, 2018 at Small’s in Hamtramck, Michigan (DaVe’s bar/club) and we think it’s going to offer an entirely different perspective on the songs the band opts to do. Again, as with the holiday record, we’ve indicated a few songs which will be part of the set in the campaign, but there will be many more to come via our selections and those of the Crazies. Believe it or not, this may be one of the most challenging things the band has ever done, but Electric Six is ready to step up and face the (non-electrical) music. Now, it should be understood that delivery of these records and all the associated packages will not happen as part of the current holiday seasons. It takes poor old Electric Six awhile to pull everything together, so you’ll get everything in October of 2018, in time for NEXT year’s festivities. The best things in life are worth the wait.
As you look through the campaign, you’ll see the usual wide variety of items on offer. Lots of old favorites are once again available, but we have a few new ones on offer as well, mostly those with a holiday theme. Dick Valentine-created holiday cards!
