iapetus Newsletter August 2013

Dear friends,

here’s the latest news from the iapetus / Unsung Productions team…

Markus Reuter has teamed up with long-term collaborator Ian Boddy to record “Colour Division” which will be the pair’s sixth studio album together. The release date is the 8th October but you can listen to a 10-minute teaser-trailer of the album right now via the DiN website: http://www.din.org.uk/din/node/473 The album was mastered by Lee Fletcher.

Leading up to this new release our friends at DiN have reduced the price of all five previous Boddy / Reuter releases to just £5 each for both downloads or CDs! Here are the direct links for each – The offers run until the end of October:

While we’re on special offers, Stick Men’s “Open” is currently at the special price of 5 Euros for the download or 8.99 for the CD. This runs until the 31st September and is available exclusively from the Iapetus store: http://iapetus-store.com/album/open

Lee Fletcher’s “Faith in Worthless Things” featuring Markus Reuter and Lisa Fletcher (plus a host of guest artists including Tim Motzer, Robert Fripp, Luca Calabrese, Bernhard Wöstheinrich and SiRenée) is also on special offer until the end of August… You can pick up the CD & Postcard for only £3.95, or the limited / signed & numbered edition for £5.95. There are also special CD bundles including other related releases: http://leefletcher.bandcamp.com/album/faith-in-worthless-things

Speaking of Lee, Lisa and Markus – All three are eligible for nomination in a variety or categories at this year’s UK “South West Music Awards”. Lee was awarded the “Best Producer” accolade last year, but this time there are potentially six relevant titles up for grabs. We’d really appreciate our friends and supporters taking a few mins to vote… If in the UK you can TEXT the following (just once) to 07826 632001, and if outside the UK the same info can be sent via the ‘Contact Us’ page here: http://swma.vpweb.co.uk/CONTACT-PAGE.html

BREAKTHROUGH ACT: Lee Fletcher
SINGLE: Islands, by Fletcher / Fletcher / Reuter
ALBUM: Faith in Worthless Things, by Lee Fletcher
PRODUCER: Lee Fletcher
VIDEO: Older Than God (music doc series)
BEST ACT: Fletcher / Fletcher / Reuter

Voting closes on 16th September. Getting nominated (and possibly winning) really does help to promote the work being done by the Iapetus “family” of artists outside the usual channels 🙂

Finally for now here’s a recap of the other 3 Euro deals that we posted in our previous newsletter, all of which are still running:
