Dear friends and family, I'm asking for a favor for the band, I don't
normally do this but if you can help us out that would be fantastic, and
you'll be on the Timinator's good list!
We have a chance for a Rubberlegs song to be included on the next CD Baby
"top sellers" compilation CD, which will ship free to everyone who orders
from their site. An awesome promotional opportunity! To make it into the top
100 sellers, we only have to sell a little more than 30 CDs, in August. I
think we can do it!
Now that we finally have a thousand shrink-wrapped "Timinator" CDs in our
possession, I really haven't minded giving them away for free -- we want as
many people as possible to have the CD. And we are grateful to our friends
who bought a copy at the CD release party and elsewhere. This promotion
means we have to actually sell a few more, so please forgive me for leaning
on you so hard...
If you don't already have "The Timinator," here's your chance to get it, and
it's only $7.77. In fact, you can get it for as little as $5 (
<http://cdbaby.com/sale> http://cdbaby.com/sale) or even less, in
combination with other CDs. Or, you can buy our retrospective CD "Leg
Warmers Reheated." These CDs make great gifts! You can help us spread some
electronic love. And if you like your Rubberlegs CD, you can give us a
little shot in the arm by ooohing and ahhhing in a quick review, at the
bottom of one or both of our CD Baby pages.

I first came across CD Baby when I read about a limited-edition live Thomas
Dolby recording, released only on CD Baby ( <http://cdbaby.com/cd/dolby>
http://cdbaby.com/cd/dolby < <http://cdbaby.com/cd/dolby>
http://cdbaby.com/cd/dolby> ). It's one of my favorites, recorded for a
gathering of friends on his 40th birthday, featuring Thomas on synths and
vocals, and three other musicians including Brian Salter, who plays an
amazing e-wi (electronic wind instrument) out of which he coaxes all kinds
of clarinets, oboes, saxes, trumpets -- simply breathtaking (sorry). And I
love the song selection. If you never heard Dolby's '90s album "Astronauts
and Heretics", you can get a sense of what you missed from the live version
of "I Love You Goodbye". Thomas Dolby may have been a founding member of the
electropop community, but at heart he is a truly great singer-songwriter.
I was pleasantly surprised to see a Jaco Pastorius "early years" CD listed
as one of their all-time top sellers ( <http://cdbaby.com/topever>
http://cdbaby.com/topever < <http://cdbaby.com/topever>
http://cdbaby.com/topever> ), as well as one by Stan Ridgway from Wall of
Voodoo. To put it mildly, we ADORE CD Baby, they totally rock!
Thanks for listening, and please let me know if you can help us out with
this August promotion.

The advent of Alt.tronica! Rubberlegs is three musically codependent friends
who collectively crave daily timereleased doses of electro rock with a
punk-slash-experimental edge and quirky fun offbeat pop songs. Originally
described as "the wackiest electronic duo since the Flying Lizards,"
Rubberlegs owes its new musical existence to Outmusic - especially to Carol
Kassel and Corinne Curcio, who spurred Peg and Bun to start honing their
live show in 2001, following two Top 5 hits on MP3.com's New Wave chart.
Their new 2006 release "The Timinator" was nominated for an OUTMUSIC Award,
for "Outstanding New Recording by a Duo or Group." Rubberlegs is BACK to
plug the proletariat with their Kevlar-piercing waveforms. They won't stop
until the world gets the message:: synthesizers rock hardest of all >-)
Get plugged today ---> ( )
