Christmas with The FuMP Volume 2 Now Available And suddenly it's that time of year again! Temperatures are down. Tempers are up. And your local pop station has already turned 100% Christmas music. Not to be left out The FuMP would like to jump on this bandwagon too!
To that end we present Christmas with The FuMP Volume 2, a collection of the best and funniest Christmas songs we've released on TheFuMP.com since volume 1. This album features over an hour of demented Christmas songs, one Chanukah song, several nerdy songs, a couple angry songs, one bored song, and one sick song. And a partridge in a pear tree. Or something.
Digital downloads are available now and as with all FuMP compilations are included with your subscription. CDs are in production and we are now accepting pre-orders for them.
The Kickstarter project to bring Logan Whitehurst's beloved album "Goodbye My 4-Track" was successful, coming to a total of $11,430 raised to make this release happen! Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I know we've said it a million times, but we just have to stress it: We started this record label with the specific goal of putting this album on vinyl. So the fact that you all actually made it happen for us is surreal and amazing.
Since the 4-track pressing is most definitely happening at this point, we've added the products to our website as pre-orders! Vinyl, CD, cassette, Mini-Album CD, and the posters are available. So, tell your friends that they can still pre-order Goodbye My 4-Track in whatever format they wish! Any extra money raised by these pre-orders will help us during our process of getting these into production in the next few weeks.

Logan Whitehurst Stretch Goal Update: The Mini Album of Luv!
We're going for the stretch goal of putting the companion EP, The Mini Album of Luv on vinyl. Here's how it works:
If we can make it to $14,000 (that's $4,000 on top of our initial goal), we will press an extremely limited run of The Mini Album of Luv on both vinyl and cassette tape. The way it will work for backers:
-EVERY REWARD TIER will receive a copy of The Mini Album of Luv on cassette, as a token of our appreciation.
-ANY REWARD TIERS that include the vinyl LP of Goodbye My 4-Track will receive a vinyl copy of The Mini Album of Luv as well. This applies to the $100, $250, and $400 bundle rewards as well as the regular "LP" reward tier, or any reward tiers such as "LP + CD," etc. Bottom line: if we make it to $14,000, and your reward includes the Goodbye My 4-Track vinyl, you're getting a Mini Album vinyl too!
-THE TEST PRESSING BUNDLE will also include a vinyl test pressing of The Mini Album of Luv.
Thank you so much for the enthusiastic response we've gotten on this campaign!

Logan Whitehurst & The Junior Science Club – Goodbye, My 4-Track Kickstarter
Logan Whitehurst's music was our inspiration for starting this record label.
Logan was a songwriting, graphic designing, multi-instrument beholding wizard of the light-heartedly absurd. He was known as the drummer for bands like Little Tin Frog and The Velvet Teen, but it was his original work that struck a chord with us. His music was an ever-changing stew of genre, his lyrics could be silly and hilarious on one track then poignant and beautiful on the next. His music was comparable to artists such as Lemon Demon, They Might Be Giants, and Jonathan Coulton.
In December 2006, Logan passed away from brain cancer at 29. In the years since, we've covered his songs and mimicked his unquestionably unique style. There was even an award named after him. We cherish the work he left behind.
Though Logan released many albums in his lifetime, few held together as a concise piece of art quite like 2003’s Goodbye, My 4-Track. The 21-track masterpiece deftly portrayed the full breadth of Logan’s talent. Iconic purveyor of radio buffoonery Dr. Demento has even referred to this album as the “Sgt. Pepper’s of comedy music”. Late last year, we realized that it never was given a proper LP release. We believe this album really deserves it.
And so, with the support and assistance of Logan’s family and friends, Needlejuice aims to re-issue the album on vinyl LP, CD, and cassette. We aim to make this the best possible package across all three formats. To do that, we need your help. We're looking to raise $10,000 over the next 30 days to fund the pressing, as well as a vinyl re-master from the original CD audio. In addition to the album proper, doing this release as a Kickstarter also allows us to provide some exclusive rewards.
The vinyl LP will be available on "Lizard Green & Fish Orange" 180-gram colored vinyl with full-color gatefold sleeve and lyric inserts. It will also include a retrospective forward by Dr. Demento.
EXCLUSIVE KICKSTARTER REWARDS:
An incredibly limited CD run of The Mini-Album of Luv, Goodbye, My 4-Track's original companion disc.
Dr. Demento has given us a very limited amount of the long-out-of-print Basement Tapes compilations that feature songs by Logan.
As a special reward, Logan's family has provided a box of rare promo posters from the original 2003 release.
