With the help of Eric Wareheim harassing customer services, Black Moth Super Rainbow netted $86,800 (of a $45,000 goal) and counting to fund its Cobra Juicy record, which the band will self-release on October 1. You might be thinking, 'whoa dudes, that's a mighty amount for a Kickstarter' or 'hey, close that shit, you got your damn money!', but factor in the costs to press a record on a scratch-n-sniff vinyl, hairy CD (no clue how this works – glued pubes?) or a USB-drive shaped like a tooth that's jammed in a laytex mask and you see where the money goes.
There's also the possibility that Tobacco and Black Moth Super Rainbow are being bought up by silver-spoon teens to play sweet sixteen parties at Philadelphia roller rinks for the next year. Sorry BMSR fall tour, but their parents dropped 10Gs on the “Tobacco Roller Skating Party” package and their little terror gets what he/she wants or maybe the IRS finds out about the untaxed 86,800 earned in 15 days (joking of course, the highest pledge was 3Gs for a life-time merchandise supply).
With 1,263 backers as of right fuggin' now, BMSR have some hefty pre-orders to fill out for the self-released record, plenty of merchandise to sign, and personalized t-shirts and videos to make for paying fans. If you're still on the fence about placing your pre-order for one of the remaining packages (some are in limited supply), allow “Windshield Smasher” to wrap up the coaxing to bid.
