Hardcore (book) - Volume
Permalink  
 


Just seen the link on the wiki seeking funding for Hardcore, a book in celebration of the album, and not sure what to make of it. I tend towards obsessive completism for Pulp related stuff... but do I really want this? Maybe it would be a beautiful (but facile?) book that just sits on a shelf for years.

Hardcore Volume

I've never heard of Volume, and would be interested to know if anyone here has come across it before. Any opinions?

I 'invested' in bandstocks years ago. It was only a tenner, and although I didn't get the money back, it felt fine to put some money towards a musician I admired, to aid funding the creative process (and reduce the risk). I've also bought into a couple of these 'deluxe' editions, where you pay in advance of production. This sort-of stuff feels fine to me, supporting bands that give a lot to me, and who often struggle to make a comfortable living.

If there was something like this for the much desired 'We Love Life' deluxe edition, I'd be very keen. Just don't know about a glossy book (although once / if it exists, I'd probably have to have it).

I've pledged. Missed the cutoff for the Early bird so I got the £40 option.

I'd say go for it. It looks like a lovely little thing.

Yes I finally got myself into gear with this. Wanted to read T&Cs. It looks like a very very nice item to have so I really hope it gets to the printers!

It needs a massive push, realistically from a Jarvis insta post, to meet the publishing target considering there's less than a couple of weeks left of the campaign.

 The counter seems to have reset to 31 days, but yes, with very slow progress so far that's still a stretch. I'm still thinking about it: if there was only the £40 option, I'd probably have gone for it immediately. But I always have that old 'Argos catalogue' mindset, of going for the most expensive thing there, and it's a LOT of extra money for a little print, a photo, and some badges.

Going to top up my bank account to see what tickets I can get on Thurs / Fri, so this'll have to wait.

Jarvis has now posted about this on the 'gram. Seems to have had some effect, the funds are into five figures now but still £30k short of target.

Endorsements on social meeds from Jarvis and Pulp have helped the target, its now reached 70% but the fundraiser is due to expire at the end of the month. Will probably fall short of the target but having come so far, I guess it will be pushed into December.

I think the proposed publishing date has already been pushed back but hopefully it does get made. Would be a shame with over £30k now committed from Pulpheads.
