Forgive the excessive amount of exclamation marks but our debut EP launch is almost here and we’re super pumped. We had a great rehearsal this afternoon with Reece (who’s come back very refreshed from his 2 weeks holidays in Adelaide). If we play like that on Friday, it should be a VERY good night. We spent the rest of the afternoon printing out some more CD’s (currently burning as we speak) because who knows, maybe 30 won’t be enough? We did however decide to go down the jewel case route rather than making them from scratch (never again). Even though it’s a LOT easier it still takes literally hours to make these up. I had to get the dimensions right to fit into the cases (because I don’t care what you say google, your dimensions are WRONG) which required a bit of trial and error. Then we had to print out 20 copies of the front and back covers, cut them out from the photo paper, fold them and put them into the cases. Probably the longest process is actually burning the CD’s- we’re talking about 5 minutes a pop. While my CD burner CAN burn at 24 speed and do it in a couple of minutes, I found that it sometimes doesn’t burn properly and puts glitches into our beloved songs. Better to be slow (4 speed) and steady. A close second to burning times is CD printing times. While it’s totally mind-blowing to be able to even print CD’s at home you can only do one at a time and again, each one takes a couple of minutes. But it’s a labour of love and totally worth it to be able to share our music with people.
