Electric Eel Shock Turn to Fans for New Project
30 June, 2012 Leave a comment
EES were one of the first bands to really embrace crowd funding. In 2004, as an unsigned band they raised £10,000 from 100 fans (the Samurai 100) by offering them guestlist for life. We’re told this saved the band from a terrible deal with a record label who shafted several other bands shortly after.
Two years later and the boys became the fastest band to raise the £50,000 budget through SellaBand. Apparently SellaBand broke a bunch of promises and ultimately went bust – part of the reason why EES chose to launch their own service. And the very first project from this service is Electric Eel shock’s first ever Best Of and Cover Album!

This will be an exclusive double package for Fan-Bo, hand numbered with the band’s signature and (possibly) your name in the booklet! Another support plan (on the right of the page) includes an original T-shirt, as well as the chance to have frontman Aki build you his own style Fuzz Guitar effect pedal.
So what you waiting for, share the word and get pledging!!
