|barge recording archive press release...|
hi folks! couple of newsworthy items. first off, innature will now me available from keith fullerton whitman's online music sales site called mimaroglu music sales. stop by the website and check 'em out....they sell some great stuff. secondly...the praise for innature just keeps rolling in. here's a nice little review from the fine folks at fakejazz.com. and finally.....we mastered the fun years record this past weekend with our friend josh bonati. he worked his usual magic and the record sounds fantastic! we are so excited about this release and are hard at work putting together the packaging and preparing it for human consumption. stay tuned!
we have posted a little photo "how to get the sleeve out of the wallet" here for those of you who have purchased innature and are having difficulty getting the sleeve that houses the cd out of the main wallet. again we apologize for this inconvenience. we are taking measures to address the issue and all product leaving barge hq will be packaged with the sleeve free-floating in the wallet so that you my choose to use the insert if you wish. we hope the "how to" helps.
in other news....check out some of the reviews innature has been receiving in the press section of the site. there will be reviews in the november issue of the wire, signal to noise and resonance as well.
hi everyone! brg001/innature is finally released to the public. the street date was tuesday the 26th and should be available at your favorite record shop. if they don't have it....tell them to order it! you can also order direct from us on the catalog page using a major credit card or pay pal. if that doesn't suit your fancy it is available from ctd ltd., forced exposure, boomkat, ektro records, aquarius records and other music among others. dave and i are so happy about this record finally coming to fruition and would like to publicly thank all the artists who brought such fine music to the table...you are the cat's pajamas! i also wanted to let everyone know that we have had many comments not only about how great the line-up and music is but about how difficult the insert is to get out. we sincerely apologize about this slight production miscalculation. we liken it to eating fine oysters....though difficult to open, the rewards are well worth the effort...that is if you like oysters. i will be posting a little pictorial "how to" in the coming days...we hope this will be helpful to those with the good sense and taste to purchase this compilation.
anyway, now that innature is finally out we can turn a bit of our attention to brg 002 which will be a full-length from the incredible fun years. we have the final mixes in-house and are sorting out all the fun production stuff that goes into making records....and when i say fun...i'm not being sarcastic. dave and i live for this....just ask my wonderfully patient and forgiving wife.

we are hard at work here at barge world hq. designers are being "commissioned", coffee is being gulped, sleep is being lost and girlfriends are getting "edgy".
please check back periodically for updates. this site is still under a constant state of flux. we are html challenged lunk-heads....but we're doing all we can to make this an enjoyable and educational world-wide web experience. feel free to drop us a line with any questions or comments.

::brg 001/innature - how do i get this frickin' cd out?!::
if you have purchased innature recently you may have noticed that the inside sleeve that houses the cd is pretty difficult to get out of the wallet. we have an easy way of getting around this issue without damaging the wallet...please see below. we apologize for this miscalculation....we have addressed the issue and all cds that leave our "warehouse" will now be supplied with the insert floating between inside the wallet giving the customer the choice of using the sleeve or not.
about 50 went out without the sleeve at all. if you purchased one of these "special editions"and would prefer to have the inner sleeve, please email us and we will send you one on us. thanks for your patience and enjoy the music.
open the wallet and grasp with your hand of choice as in the above photo.
through the inside opening, insert your index and fore-finger into the slot minding the edges of the wallet.
gently but with a bit of force push on the inner sleeve being careful not to tear the edges. you can use your thumb to apply pressure to cover panel. you will dent the inner sleeve slightly when performing this step...but the damage is minimal and adds to the character of the sleeve.
pull on the tab that you just made from pushing the sleeve through and give'er a good tug.
slides right out like a charm!
viola! insert cd into home stereo device and set level volume anywhere between 6 and 8.
step 7 "the re-entry":
slide back in using the inner slot. should not feel as tight and goes in rather gently like every second time should.
slide all the way in and repeat process when needed. it becomes much easier with each in and out and you'll find that it has a nice fit when it's broken in....like a good pair of jeans!
we apologize for any inuendo....it was just too easy.
please let us know if you have any problems....we're happy to help.
thanks for listening
ian and dave
