A message from Richard Cheese:

January 2, 2014

Dear Friends, Fans, and NSA Monitors:

Happy New Year!

I'd like to thank you all so much for your kind support of Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine.

Many of you have been asking me why we haven't been touring for the last 6 months, why we don't have any shows scheduled for 2014, when I'm having my eye surgery, and why I have been drunk-dialing your wife at 11:59PM every night.

Well, it's a long story, but basically, in July 2013, I was hospitalized for this random staph infection on the back of my neck, and I almost DIED!  Like DEAD DIED!  I also had hernia surgery last year, plus I sprained my psoas (if you know what I mean), and all of that prevented me from getting the cornea operation I still need.

So, I've had to cancel our live concert tours until I get all my cricks fixed.  I'll tell the whole gruesome story in my forthcoming book "Atlas Lounged," but until then, I appreciate your patience, your enthusiasm, and your wife.

My eye surgery is finally rescheduled for May 2014.  I'm still writing my book, but with only one working eye, it's going slow, so it probably won't be released until November 2014.  Sorry again for the delays, but the book is realllllly going to be worth the wait, it's a lot of fun.  If you haven't pre-ordered "Atlas Lounged" yet, please visit www.atlaslounged.com .

In the meantime, thanks again for your loyalty and generous support.  I hope to be back in front of the microphone soon; I'll keep you posted on my progress.  Please follow me on FaceBook and Twitter and Instagram @RichardCheese, and maybe I'll even show you a photo of my psoas.  Or, ask your wife -- she's got the negatives.

Stay Swanky,

RC

P.S. Ow!

ANOTHER, OLDER LETTER FROM RICHARD CHEESE


Dear Fans, Friends, and Packaged Liquor Store Owners:

Thank you so much for your kind support of our music and our band.  We truly appreciate your enthusiasm, loyalty, and swankiness.

Our newest albums are "COCKTAILS WITH SANTA," "THE ROYAL BABY ALBUM," and "BACK IN BLACK TIE," and they're on sale now.  We have 18 albums on sale at http://music.richardcheese.com and iTunes, too!

I've also produced a new CD, "JOHNNY ALOHA: LAVAPALOOZA," which is available at johnnyaloha.com I'm sure you'll love Johnny's great new album of Hawaiian-style versions of rock and rap songs; he's so good, he sounds a lot like me.

All of these CDs, plus T-shirts and other merchandise, are available at our webstore, http://music.richardcheese.com


We are also working on some other new ventures, including my new book "Atlas Lounged" ( www.atlaslounged.com ), a CD boxed set, a documentary/concert film, and a sandwich whose primary ingredients are bacon, lettuce, and tomato.

I hope you enjoy your visit to richardcheese.com, and I also encourage you to visit our official FaceBook page at facebook.com/richardcheese, our Twitter page at  twitter.com/richardcheese, and follow me on Instagram @richardcheese.  Please tell your friends about us, too.

Thanks again for believing in The Cheese.  You are the best fans a lounge singer could ever have.  Keep swingin'!

                                 ----RC

HONOR THY CHEESE
Dear Fans:
If you've ever obtained my music without paying for it (such as downloading or filesharing or ripping CDs), please consider making a fair contribution to our band.  Visit http://music.richardcheese.com, buy something, and become a true fan of Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine.  Thank you for your loyalty, integrity, and support.  --RC
 

 


 

Dear Richard Cheese Fans:

Because music piracy and file sharing have destroyed sales of our CDs, we are forced to discontinue the manufacture of new Richard Cheese CDs.

The CDs listed below are OUT OF PRINT and will not be manufactured anymore; once we sell all of the CDs on our shelves, they will NOT be available for sale ever again.

- DICK AT NITE
- VIVA LA VODKA SOLD OUT!
- OK BARTENDER SOLD OUT!
- JOHNNY ALOHA: LAVAPALOOZA SOLD OUT!
- LIVE AT THE ROYAL WEDDING
- A LOUNGE SUPREME SOLD OUT!
- BACK IN BLACK TIE
- COCKTAILS WITH SANTA

If you want to own one of these CDs, please buy one now at
http://music.richardcheese.com.


This is not a publicity stunt. We are not a big record label with nationwide retail distribution. We are an independent band. Richard Cheese pays for recording, manufacturing, and packaging costs out of his own pocket. Richard cannot afford to fund any more CDs, because of the decline in music sales.

We rely 100% on fan support. We need more customers, or we cannot record any more new songs/albums.

We cannot go on tour to raise funds, due to increased travel costs and poor ticket sales. Extensive touring is not an option at this time.

If you want Richard Cheese to continue recording music, please buy one of the above CDs, or other merchandise, from our webstore at www.loungemart.com .

Please help by forwarding this message on and getting your new friends to lounge against the machine with us.

Getting new fans to support our band financially means jobs for our musicians and engineers, more business for recording studios, and more music for everyone.

Please do you what you can to help spread the cheese.

If we are able to find funding, we will record new music. But the actual manufacture of physical CDs is over. Get them while you still can.

Thank you for your loyalty and support.


--Jack Monterey, Operations Manager
Coverage Records
 



 

 

A special message from Richard Cheese to our brave troops all over the world:

Hey kids...thanks for your kind emails and enthusiastic support.  I have heard from many of you in the military who tell me that you listen to our songs while on duty.  Wow!  That is crazy and wonderful and I am flattered beyond words.  I am proud of you and I believe in you and I think of you constantly.  That's why I drink so much!  I hope we bring you home soon.  Keep swingin' and stay safe!  ---RC

 
Thanks to everyone who participated in "OPERATION: CHEESEY FREEDOM" in 2011.  We sent out more than 5,000 totally free CDs to military personnel around the globe.  Swankification: Accomplished

 

FROM THE DESK OF JACK MONTEREY,
SENIOR VICE-PRESIDENT OF OPERATIONS


Dear Richard Cheese Fan:

Thanks for your kind support of Richard Cheese & Lounge Against The Machine. We appreciate your loyalty and we hope you enjoy our albums.

The rest of this letter is aimed at people who are NOT loyal fans. If you're the kind of person who fileshares and rips CDs, this is for you.

We'd like to respectfully ask that you PLEASE DONíT copy, share, burn, rip, upload, sideload, duplicate, re-distribute, or otherwise infringe upon our copyrighted recordings and intellectual property. It's okay to put our CD on your personal iPod, but please don't let our albums be copied by friends or family.

The unauthorized copying and distribution of copyrighted music is just plain wrong, and it directly hurts Richard and makes it financially impossible for them to keep recording albums. That's why we're trying to stop music piracy and filesharing, and we would really appreciate your cooperation.

Richard, his bands and crew, and many other hard-working professional people spend lots of time, energy, and money making our CDs. We also pay out royalties to the original artists for every song on every CD, which also costs a lot of money. Lots of money. OH MY GOODNESS, IT'S A LOT OF MONEY!

You see, we're not a big record company with lots of funding; Richard takes cash out of his own pocket to fund these CDs. So, when you trade MP3s or give away burned CDRs, that means fewer people will purchase our albums. Yes, the economy is tough out there, but Richard has to make a living, too. Selling CDs is the only way he can make enough money to record more music for you. If his CDs and tracks are stolen, then he will go bankrupt. It's that simple.

Giving away our music for free does NOT result in more CD sales for us; it just takes money away from our band, and makes it impossible to stay in business. That's not fair or cool.

Is it okay to walk into a diner, eat a meal, and then leave without paying, as long as you tell other people how great the food was? Of course not. That's a crime against the hardworking people who work at that restaurant. Music piracy is just as immoral as shoplifting, stealing cable, and sneaking into movies.

Richard asks you from his heart: please don't participate in the stealing of music. Please resist the temptation to share, copy, and re-distribute these songs. Please please please donít loan out your CDs to friends, and please don't allow your CDs to be copied or uploaded. Otherwise, Richard won't be able to recoup his investments, and that means he won't be able to afford to record or produce any more albums in the future. This is the real and serious consequence of music piracy and illegal downloading.

Yes, the internet can be a good source of exposure, and we do appreciate people's enthusiasm. But theft is NOT an acceptable way to promote our music, period. That is Richard's position on this issue.

If you want to help Richard Cheese, tell your friends to visit http://music.richardcheese.com or iTunes and listen to the preview clips. Or, you can let them LISTEN to one of your CDs. But PLEASE don't let them burn or copy your CD. Please tell your friends and cousins and co-workers and classmates to PLEASE GO BUY THEIR OWN CD.

These albums belong to Richard; he created them, he owns them, and he wants you to enjoy his work on the condition that you pay a purchase price for that privelege. There are real costs associated with recording, producing, manufacturing, and distribution, and we have to sell as many CDs as possible just to break even. We don't want a huge profit; we aren't in this business to get rich. We just want to earn enough money to continue making more new albums for you, our devoted fans.

We do what we do because we love the idea, we love the music, but most of all, we love the fans who "get it" and support us with their loyalty and integrity. So, please keep supporting us by respecting Richard's hard work, and by making sure you aren't enabling or participating in the crime of stealing music. If you're gonna steal something, we recommend you go after gasoline, pharmaceuticals, and patio furniture. That stuff is overpriced!

We love our loyal fans, and Richard wants to continue making new CDs for you. Please help us in the fight against music piracy. Treat your new CD like a valuable treasure; you paid for it, so, let's make sure no one else gets it for free!

Both I and Richard sincerely appreciate your loyalty, understanding, and support. We truly hope you enjoy our albums, and we also hope you will tell all your friends about our music. Thank you from Richard Cheese.

Best Wishes,


Jack Monterey, Senior VP of Operations
