about

DEAR DOWNLOADER of MUSIC

this album and the accompanying art book were made possible through the POWER OF CROWDFUNDING. thank you to every single person who backed the Kickstarter to make this happen.

YOU made US and THIS a reality.

now that it's here, it's important for me to tell you that i i firmly believe in music being as free as possible. unlocked. shared and spread.

i believe that in order for artists to survive and create, their audiences need to step up and directly support them.
honor system.
no judgment.
if you’re broke – take it. if you love it, come back and kick in later when you have the money.
if you’re rich, think about who you might be karmically covering if you really love this record.

once you have it, SHARE SHARE SHARE! COPY COPY COPY! SPREAD THE EVIL!!!

THE FUTURE IS NOW

WE ARE THE MEDIA

LONG LIVE THE PUNK CABARET

love,
AFP

p.s. if you’re not following me on twitter, you’re missing everything: @amandapalmer

A GRAND THEFT THANK YOU
Amanda & The Orchestra would like to thank all our love-friends in Melbourne who fed us with art, rubs, food, and instruments while we hunkered down to record this beast of an album.

Amanda would like to thank the magnificent team who made order out of chaos: Kevin, Vickie, Felice, Jared, and Eric at Girlie Action; SuperKate (best assistant ever), Hayley “Fiasco” Rosenblum, and Sean “indecisean” Francis who Makes Everything Online Go. thanks to Carter and Ron for priceless advice. thanks to the creative packaging brains at A to Z media, all of the hardworking folks at Kickstarter, our lovely Oz seamstress Jess Daly, and Jim Batt (our Melbourian ass-kicking filmmaker). and the biggest love of all to my moxy, Neil Gaiman...for everything he does for and to me.
