Viv Albertine Debut Album Funded By Her Fans

The internet is a wonderful place.  Viv Albertine, formerly the guitarist of the legendary punk band The Slits, is using the nets to raise money to release her first solo album.  She has a website set up on Pledgemusic.com where you can donate, see photographs and videos, and get special merch.  So far, internet patrons have paid for Viv’s engineer, and to get the tracks mastered.  It sometimes blows my mind how easy it is now for music fans to get in touch with (and involved in the recording process!) of their favorite musicians.
