British duo the Indelicates have novel ideas when it comes to funding their art in the current musical climate. For more conventional endeavors—such as employing the pay-what-you-can model on previous releases—Julia and Simon Indelicate are also known to offer custom gigs when touring, an offer which involves a fan receiving the rights to the show they pay for. With their latest release, a three-part endeavor called Diseases of England, fans can ensure the album’s completion via a leveled ordering system. All levels guarantee the four-song aperitif that will ultimately serve as Diseases of England’s middle half; depending on how much money is put forth, The Indelicates will also throw in a secret track (level one) or (at level six) an annotated lyric book, all previous releases in a special collector’s box, and fudge. For those who really want to splash out and at the same time deliver Julia and Simon from bankruptcy, special editions, involving everything from Indelicates plush toys to teaching songwriting workshops at a school of your choice, are also on offer.
