We're sure you're aware of the fire which destroyed the stock of many, many great record labels in the UK, which happened at the beginning of last month. Since then there has been an array of benefit activities for those labels affected by the fire and loss of stock. Last week Bella Union put a bunch of t-shirts up for sale, all signed by bands on their rather impressive roster. Read who they all are below:
Explosions In The Sky
Lanterns on the Lake
My Latest Novel
The Low Anthem
Treefight For Sunlight
Zun Zun Egui
And the actual ebay listen can be found here. As we said, rather impressive. Simon Raymonde, the label boss, had this to say about it:
"The bands really wanted to help when they heard what had happened. Even though Bella Union is NOT a label that's affected directly, we still feel the grief of our friends, and this is a community that cares. I have seen it in the past, when my own label HAS been on the brink of collapse after Pinnacle went bust, and we're just happy now to return a piece of that goodwill."
Anyway, there's just under FOUR days left to bid on the items, so we're reminding you to get your bottom in gear if you want these. Or, of course, come in really late with a massive bid, if you're into that kind of tactic. More details of the fund that has been set up can be found here.
