Flyin’ Saucepan is a DIY electronic music label based in Ayrshire, created with the primary aim of cataloguing private music produced and collected by Mr Dimensional.
Going through the archives of previous bands, recordings, friends unreleased tracks and demos over the last 15 years, I realised that nobody (save for close friends and the neighbours) would ever hear any of it! I don’t have the cash or the resources to spend vast amounts of money and time putting together fancy marketing plans, but I know that some of the music sitting in my private collection is pretty interesting.
Some of the tracks are so old and raw that they just couldn’t be released as they stand, but I’d like to put them out there after spending some time with them to spruce them up a bit. And revisiting some of the tracks has brought about new creativity and re-versions where ideas were full of potential but never fully formed.
Flyin’ Saucepan is an excercise in categorisation, purging myself of the bad music which has been sitting around on my many hard drives for far too long and in the process, finding a place for the good stuff. Each release will be celebrated with the creation of an accompanying recipe to reflect the record release date, themes, locations, and just good fun!
It’s a label for the global recession. Everything’s £1 directly from the Bandcamp store. Be it individual tracks or the entire release. Except for physical products which will be hand made and homely, and may cost more simply to make. If the tracks are for sale elsewhere, they won’t cost £1. Individual stores set their own prices, and take a big chunk for themselves.
If you like Flyin’ Saucepan, buy directly!!!
Also, if you try out the recipes or share any of the wallpapers and ringtones, take photos or videos of them and send them through! I’ll put them up on the Flyin’ Blog…
