ButterFly Joe signs on with LightYear Entertainment !
Here is a letter recieved from Razler Records :
December 28, 1999
I am pleased to be able to tell you that some very exciting things are
going on with BUTTERFLY JOE.
Last week, we signed a contract with Lightyear Entertainment for national
and overseas distribution for their CD. The CD will be distributed in the
US by WEA (Warner Bros./Electra/Atlantic Records), in Canada by Koch, and
in Europe and Asia by independent distributors. "We're delighted to
welcome Razler Records and Butterfly Joe to the Lightyear family", said
Arnold Holland Lightyear President and CEO. "This band has all of the
elements we look for --great songwriting, a beautifully crafted and
well-produced album, striking packaging, distinctive vocal styling, and a
very strong live show. The Dead Milkmen connection and track record is
icing on the cake." The street date for the national release is Feb. 8th.
A promotions campaign is being planned which will start in January. The
band will be visiting selected cities on the east coast in Jan./Feb./Mar.
This week we got the news that after debuting at #164 on the college radio
charts the CD has shot up to CMJ's Top 100 at #91. Thanks to everyone who
has been calling and e-mailing in requests. Please keep it up. If you
want to know the station nearest you that has the BUTTERFLY JOE CD in their
rotation, just send me a note and I'll give you all of the information.
For those of you in the Philly area, we are still charting on WKDU 91.7fm.
