When Paul Sanchez and John Boutte cut the first albums for Threadhead Records, their deal with the Threadheads was that they pay back the money raised for their albums within a year. That has been the deal until now, but the Threadhead Records Foundation is about to launch its first round of grant funding. They are now accepting applications through January 3, 2010, and they're intended to help musicians record music that promotes "the cultural heritage of New Orleans," the press release says.
