25 hours to go, how’d we do?
in progress, design for the 6-panel 2CD digipak
Hello. There’s 25 hours to go in the Kickstarter for the new mix of BlackTape’s 1987 Mesmerized by the Sirens. Join us in creating this physical release in three formats: 140-gram color vinyl (two color variations), double-CD, and MiniDisc. Yes, MD! This will be the 4th BlackTape album on MD and the 10th to be issued on vinyl.
The goal was reached and the stretch goal as well, yet the campaign isn’t done yet! Backers pledged $302 today, adding their support to the team that creates this lovely release (and get bonus items only available at Kickstarter.)
There are 205 people on board as I write this. Join them. Join us!
Stream & download the 2023 mix for free at Bandcamp

Fernando from Peru wrote on Facebook: Mesmerized by the Sirens is my favorite album from your band. That album accompanied me in a difficult moment (it was like escaping into a dreamlike space while listening to it).
Thank you so much. I love hearing how my music was there for you at tough moments. Much the same as This Mortal Coil and Dead Can Dance was there for me in the mid-80s (when I began recording as Black Tape For A Blue Girl.) It’s great knowing the art Oscar, Sue-Kenny, Alan, Walter and I created was able to do the same for you.
Thanks to all who have pledged the Kickstarter. I look forward to a few more joining with us in the next 24 hours.
