Shanghai start Indiegogo campaign to raise funds for re-release of debut album
Shanghai have just started an Indiegogo ampaign to raise funds for the re-release and 25th year anniversary of their debut album Take Another Bite.
The group’s Indiegogo campaign states (with slight edits):
“Who we are:
WE ARE SHANGHAI.
Jayde, Ron Kramer, Tony Childs, and Jodi (Fucking) Reese R.I.P 2016
Shanghai had marginal success in Japan and Europe (charting #19 on the Billboard Rock Charts and selling over 25,000 copies of their debut CD) and still continue to sell CDs but unfortunately the band split and have all gone their separate ways. “Pease Me Tease Me” has appeared in movies such as The Amy Fisher Story starring Drew Barrymore and Sunset Heat starring Michael Pare, the late Dennis Hopper. Recently, Tony the guitarist and Jayde started recording again and are working on new songs hoping to perform live again with new twists on some Shanghai songs. The band has had a very rocky past 15 years, some have stopped playing all together and Jayde almost gave up singing but now they are ready to begin their journey with you again. Unfortunately, Shanghai lost Jodi the bassist in 2009 and this, is dedicated to him. With your help we can do this, we can’t do it alone and at the present time we have very little financial backing. Shanghai NEEDS YOUR HELP and that is where you come in. Please help to continue the legacy of one of the best 80s records out there. And keep Take Another Bite and Shanghai alive for another 25 Years.
