Punks Against Tsunamis!

I’ve been asked to give a shout out to a benefit gig organised to raise some much-needed cash for Save The Children Japan. There are some cracking acts on the line-up running the whole gamut of punk rock, from ranting poetry to pounding crust. So make a date in your diary and get along if you can.

The ever-indefatigable Mike Park of long-running and staunchly DIY label Asian Man, and founder of the Plea For Peace Foundation, has also put together a deal with every penny going to a charity aiding in the tsunami aftermath (voted for by the punks themselves). For $40 (plus $6 for post if you’re in the US and $18 if you’re in the UK) you get 8 CDs and an AM t-shirt that together would normally cost you $76. He’s also selling a chunk of test presses for $100 a piece, so now’s your chance to get your hands on some ultra-rare chunks of plastic from the likes of Bomb The Music Industry!, Kevin Seconds and The Queers.

Even if you can’t support either of these efforts directly, I’m sure you’ll find your own way to show the Japanese people that they’re not alone. It’s what we punks are good at.
