Pledge Update

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

Dear Everyone,

The closing date of the current Songs & Words PledgeMusic campaign has been extended and will officially be October 27th (not November 27th as previously announced on Pledge).

That’s it. No more. The train will have left the station along with the last horse bolting and the fat lady singing. It will be an ex-Pledge campaign. It will cease to be.

I notice that it has already been generously extended, which is a lovely idea – keeping Pledge campaigns going on forever n’ that, hey I hate saying goodbye too. The fact of the matter is that we won’t be saying “goodbye”, as much as “hang on a tic” …with another Pledge campaign following hot on the heels of this S&W one.

I won’t say too much about the new campaign, apart from this:

It launches on November 9th.

It is unlike anything I’ve ever done with Pledge.

It won’t be dependent on reaching 100%.

It will last a very long time.

Curious? Just hang tight until September, when all will be fully revealed like a top quality stripper.

Until then, thank you for making the Songs & Words campaign the most exciting and surprising one of them all.

Hey, I wrote a bloody book!

Ginger Says – Happy New Year 2007

Happy New Year! What a year this one is going to be! What a year the last one was!! Round Records got off to a flying start with the release of Valor Del Corazon, in January 2006. With releases by Howling Willie Cunt (‘World Of Filth’) and The God Damn Whores (‘We Are The Lucky […]

Ginger Says – My Old Friend The Clock

Monday, February 6th, 2006

Just got myself re-domesticated back in glorious Newcastle, right on the Tyne. I can even walk to the match from here, bliss, and in the process got myself back online, after what seems months (actually, it was) of blissfully computer free activity. Try it sometimes. It’s great! So I decided to visit my ‘myspace’ page […]

Ginger Says – Valor Del Corazon

Sunday, May 22nd, 2005

My life turned into shit on an aeroplane heading for the sunny Philippines at the end of 2004, a holiday my family would take every Christmas – we’d visit family members, hang out on beaches, eat great food and chill out further than we thought possible. The trip began fairly smoothly. On the plane I […]

Ginger Says – The Changing Face Of Rock

Wednesday, November 3rd, 2004

“The more that things change the more they stay the same” If, like me, you are old enough to remember music before Nirvana, or ways of finding out about bands without the aid of the internet, or waiting to seeing ‘how your favourite group moves on-stage’ without having the dream shattered by MTV showing ‘how […]

Ginger Says – Faceless Music in a Lifeless Industry

Friday, July 23rd, 2004

Having just got back from America, I have to admit that I have managed to somehow rub the brilliant sheen of the experience almost completely away. Reality, and London, have stripped me of all the joy and hope I had for this upsetting little system of power games that we call a ‘business’. I will […]

Ginger Says – And the consistent will inherit the Earth

Sunday, May 16th, 2004

It’s been a while since doing one of these ‘intro’ things, and I have to say I have been dreading starting up this little habit again. Not because of the work (surely, Dear Reader, you know you deserve that), but because every time I sit down to write an intro, something else good happens. Every […]

Ginger Says – We cannot fail – because the only critic capable of thwarting our zest for life, for the unchartered and intensely difficult times ahead, is ourselves

Monday, January 5th, 2004

HAPPY NEW YEAR, ALL YOU FAITHFUL… …and go fuck yourself, all you moaning bastards that have marred what was otherwise a perfectly rotten 2003! Jeez, what a year! It started well. Independently reaching the hallowed UK top 20 and appearing on Top Of The Pops with ‘Stormy In The North, Karma In The South’. Personally […]

Ginger Says – Greetings From Hospital

Friday, May 30th, 2003

Just got back from a trip to Hell. It all started when… well, let’s go back aways. I’ve always had a tremendously competitive streak. It has blurred my decisions, marred my enjoyment and misdirected my attention for years, ever since I got into this business, in fact. And if one can make comparisons between brains […]

Ginger Says – The Good, The Bad And The Mighty

Tuesday, April 8th, 2003

Ever thought that things have gone as bad as things can possibly get, only for things to get worse? Much, much worse? In the quest for the official nadir of bad tidings the good news is that there isn’t one. When the smell of shit becomes too much to deal with, worry not… pretty soon […]
