When we final heard from Fudgy, the far-flung group of musicians led by Milwaukee’s Justin Kern (different members hail from Buffalo, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis) was offering its latest 7-inch record in change for a donation to Milwaukee nonprofit Road Angels. Now, lo these many months later, Fudgy is upping the ante: For the value of a donation to Milwaukee nonprofit Pathfinders, Fudgy will bestow upon you a vinyl copy of its new 30-song double LP, The Now Finish Of The Universe.
“A journey of escape when there’s nowhere else to go,” reads the outline for the 90-minute double album, “a 14-year musical victory by the forces of chuckling wildness over these too fearful to reside. Lengthy-form exploration with out all that wankery, shorthand exculpatory proof within the trial of creative style. In brief, a very from-the-heart goof.” Lovely.
Wanna hear it and maintain it in your fingers? Donate to Pathfinders HERE, and e-mail your donation receipt to Kern at firstname.lastname@example.org. (The instructed donation is $25-$50.) As for Pathfinders: “Pathfinders’ mission is to empower youth in disaster to make constructive life decisions, which is able to be certain that youth, ages 25 and beneath within the better Milwaukee space who’re confronted by disaster or trauma, are protected and linked so as to develop a path in the direction of profitable maturity and more healthy households.”
And there’s extra! A digital record-release extravaganza is about for Saturday, December 19 at 7:30 p.m CST. The shindig guarantees “a Chautauqua-style night of leisure together with songs from this album and, tentatively, a preview of a ‘switching locations’ sort film involving DMX.” Wanna get in on that motion? “Ask a punk for the Zoom invite hyperlink” says Fudgy (a.ok.a. e-mail Kern or mark your self as “going” or “” on the Facebook event).
Within the meantime, right here’s the radio edit of the primary single from The Now Finish Of The Universe, “Shabash!”
