  8. From the compilation album “Any Love Is Good Love” – and here is a message for you concerning this release –  ” The album is a combination of efforts from musicians and queer rights activists across the UK, with support from Peter Tatchell, who has written sleeve notes for the album. Disgusted and shocked by the commonality of homophobic and transphobic attacks in the UK, we want to do something positive to challenge the attitude that if someone doesn’t fit the gender or sexual so-called “norms” then they are fair gain for abuse. We are really counting on support from the likes of …. to help us get this message out there. We want the message to spread far and wide into alternative music, a scene which is only ever as accepting as the messages musicians are sending out. All of the proceeds from this album go directly to Lesbian and Gay Youth Manchester, an excellent project which has supported vulnerable young LGBT people in Manchester for 30 years, and which is currently battling for survival.  Emma Reed, Ste McCabe and Cherryade Records x”

  23. As featured last week – “Following the overwhelming success of My Proud Mountain’s first release, Songs of Townes Van Zandt with Scott Kelly, Steve Von Till and Wino, the label have since been inundated with questions about the next instalment in the series, and flooded with offers from bands to be part of it.   My Proud Mountain have responded to the wishes and have put together another dream team for the second Songs Of Townes Van Zandt release which will see the light of day later this year. Taking on the dutiful challenge of covering Townes Van Zandt’s music this time is John Baizley, singer and guitar player of Baroness, Nate Hall from US Christmas, and Mike Scheidt from YOB. Each musician approaching their favourite songs in their own personal way, paying homage to the original recordings and finding new ways to convey these well known songs and to deliver their lyrical content. In the interim, My Proud Mountain created something extra special for Record Store Day 2013 on 20 April in the form of a collectible 10” LP featuring four Townes Van Zandt songs – two unreleased songs and two previously released material also. Track-listing is = Side A: John Baizley – If I Needed You – first outtake from “Songs of Townes Van Zandt” to be released in 2013.
