NEW album by The Social Service released TODAY!"SONGS IN VACUUM"

Dearest Cluesforum readers,
It is my pleasure to announce the release of my band's 2016 album, "Songs in Vacuum". It is the result of countless 'midnight oil' studio sessions we've been diligently upholding this last year, ever since the release of our 2015 "Realitivity" album. I really feel lucky to still have various members of my former, full-fledged live-performing band ("The Social Service") still regularly coming around in my little recording studio and contributing to album projects such as this. The thing is, the music-making 'bug' is what keeps me going - whenever my (otherwise naturally-optimistic) mood takes a downturn. As I may have stated in the past, the live band disbanded largely due to my very own 'fault' - as I dived heads-and-shoulders into the time-consuming September Clues research - and of course, dedicating 'unhealthy' amounts of time running Cluesforum - in my uncontrollable (yet well-meaning) urge to help restore some sanity in this demented world of ours...
This said, however - no regrets: knowing what I know now about the music industry, I'm glad that I kept out of it - not that I ever nurtured any hopes of becoming a (gawd forbid) "rock star" of any kind !... To be sure, I'm quite content that my life's ...uh... 'greatest hits' (September Clues and this forum) will never make it to a TV audience - and much less to any "Emmy" awards or such like - and that music will always remain a pleasant & relaxing hobby / pastime for me.
Nonetheless, I will now shamelessly hope that ALL
of you Cluesforum readers may consider the opportunity of purchasing this new album - whether you dig it or not ( lulz
) - were it only to show your appreciation of, well, all the work and efforts I've put into this (totally un-financed /un-sponsored / budget-less) discussion forum over the years. On the other hand, if you DO dig our new album - yet have never considered clicking our little 'donut' button, perhaps you might take this opportunity to BOTH acquire some cool music AND, at the same time, show your appreciation for my longstanding research efforts (and yes, as much as I hate to 'disclose' this, I'm in pretty dire financial straits right now - due to various circumstances I will spare you the details of). The Bandcamp music site allows anyone to buy an album at its stated, minimum price (or more) - and by downloading the tunes you'll get them in full audio quality - as opposed to the low-res quality of the Bandcamp online player.
Please note that our very own Hoi Polloi makes a 'cameo appearance' in the song called "BY THE BALLS" - with words / text written by himself!
Come on folks, please make us happy (my band and yours truly) and purchase our latest album! We had about two dozen customers for our 2015 album ("Realitivity") - and we really do hope we can top that number this year - with our 2016 "Songs in Vacuum" project. Of course, I do understand that Cluesforum readers are not necessarily music lovers (or much less, The Social Service fans!) - but how about making an exception this time, were it only for the sake of solidarity with this forum's very existence and sustainability?
