Canadian Label Yeah Right Records have put together a pretty impressive compilation album to download and today is the last chance to download it as they’re tallying up the proceeds to send off to the charity so don’t hesitate.
There’s a common saying that goes back centuries which states that evil prevails when good people do nothing. We’re witnessing the culmination of years of outrage at a lack of justice as it spills out into the city streets. Things have to change. We stand in solidarity with Black Lives Matter, and we step aside so that their voice may be more clearly heard.
Proceeds from this compilation will be donated to
Black Lives Matter blacklivesmatter.com and blacklivesmatter.ca
and The Black Solidarity Fund Canada www.canadahelps.org/en/black-solidarity-fund/ (donations are matched by a corporate sponsor until July 31st)
Power to the people.
Cover art features an iconic image of Tommie Smith from the 1968 Olympic Games, raising a black-gloved fist on the medal podium while receiving his gold medal for the 200 metre dash.
If you want a few pretty good rock and roll reasons to dig deep then let’s not shy away from 31 bands from 15 cities, each artist appears courtesy of themselves. The exclusive songs on offer like the Awesome Black Halos demo of ‘For You’ or The Streetwalkin Cheetahs who bring ‘Scorpio Rising’ now if that’s not enough reason to part with $7 I don’t know what is. But hold your horses because there’s more Sick Things add some much-needed cowbell with ‘You Know It Aint Right’. But wait the excellent ancient Shapes rock up with ‘Separation Anxiety’.
Christ, Red Army are on here as well as Tricky Woo damn this might just be one of the best compilation albums ever never mind this year. Dboy and The Spitfires have entries as well haha! I’m laughing as I think its a steal at such a low buy-in as you get so much bang for your buck and it would be remiss of me to not let you know that Biters are on here as well as the super sleazy rock and roll bubblegum rock of Midnight Towers.
There’s a whole host of new bands on me as well that now need investigating and if they’re on a comp as good as this and a label as cool as Yeah Right then I’d be pretty fuckin stupid to not check em out. Don’t delay folks as this supports a great cause which is really the main thrust of it but to get this much cool music is a bonus.
Never stop fighting good causes and a huge amount of kudos to all the bands and the label for getting behind this. Rock for good causes kids you know it makes sense.
