Capstone Zulu first album a flop
Capstone Zulu was distributed through ReverbNation by many distributers to include:
iTunes (US, Aus/NZ, Canada, UK/Europe, Japan, Mexico), Amazon MP3, Amie Street, eMusic, Fox News, GetGreenMusic, GetPlaylists, Guevera, iLike, Immergent, InMotion Entertainment, Intertech Media, Think Indie (CIMS/Junketboy), La Curacao, Last.fm, Wal-Mart (Liquid), MediaNet, MOG, Moozone, MySpace, Myxer, Napster, Nokia, Pandora, Puretracks, Rhapsody, Secure Media, Shockhound, Spotify, Synacor, Tesco, WaTunes, We7, Zune.
The first sale reports are about to be delivered or are coming soon. However it does not look very good, because the music is simply not being played very much.
Admittedly, it was not the best of productions, but it had a few very meaningful songs selections. Songs such as Symbolic Castration, New World Order, Can we make it and You think I am bad, are songs that I am very proud to have recorded. Perhaps a more mainstream artist could have carried it better, but if so would they still be considered mainstream?
I think I made a mistake by rushing the release of this project as a BETA project. In the process of attempting to learn and understand to distribution networks, for future releases I sacrificed this one. I might re-master my favorite songs on this album and add it to my next project along with other new material.
I haven’t been promoting this album much lately, because I am a one man band so to speak and have been focusing on another agenda, my non profit corporation NCNCHINC (The National Network and Coalition of Highlands, INC.) As we will meanly focus on community work, addressing the economic and social problems and situations of the Hood, we will build a state of the art DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) at the headquarters’ location.
We at NCNCHINC are very low on liquid capital. However, we are in the green on equity and are seeking a line of credit and grants and of course philanthropic gifts. We have to restructure our board of directors and tighten up on some of our administrative tasks to gain 501 c 3 statuses. However our biggest challenge is the lack of liquidity. We have a building that is two stories; however we are not able to move into it due to the lack of capital. I have not seen many darker days, but for the first time I see light at the end of the tunnel.
We have a web site under construction, for further information check out www.NCNCHINC.org – This is our acronym and it was a blessing that we got the domain.
