The Aliens Beam Up Fans With New Birdman Package

Posted By on Wed, Jul 1, 2009 at 2:22 PM

From Neil Young to the Pixies, musicians are banking on fans forking over the big bucks to own more than a collection of songs. Different acts are experimenting with various ways to repackage their music to include physical odds and ends, video footage, and other goodies that help hike up revenues to the artists. U.K. band The Aliens--which includes members of the Beta Band--are one of the lesser known acts to try and pretty up their retail offerings with something special for the loyal folks.

The Aliens recently announced that they're going to have a limited-edition, 50+ page book on the shelves this fall, a package that will include a new record as well as drawings, poems, film stills, photographs, and interviews. Not sure what the cost is gonna be for this sucker, but you'll be able to find it on local label Birdman.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
