UPDATE: Bryce has closed submissions for now because your response was so overwhelmingly positive. Thanks to all who joined! Glad to be included among you! If you’re feeling the same nauseating mixture of grief, anger, and helplessness that I am over this administration’s morally repugnant policies but not sure what to do, my pal @bryce_kepner is putting together a compilation record benefitting ActBlue to help fight this border crisis. Myself and @fellowrobot are already donating tunes, so I’m putting out the call for some of my other musician friends to reach out and help make this happen. If you don’t have music to donate, we’re aiming for a July 16th release date! #music#actblue#benefit#record#makeadifference#benefitalbum#album#compilation#charityrecord#fellowrobot#resist
Written by Midge Ure and Bob Geldof, this single was released in response to the famine of 1983-85 in Ethiopia. Bob Geldof estimated the record would make around £70,000 but within 12 months it had raised £8 million. Featuring a huge lineup of many of the UK's biggest pop stars and bands of the time, recording together as Band Aid, this was the precursor to the Live Aid concerts. This song brings back special memories of those times, and I still love it! 🎅🌲🌊🐨🏄 Produced by Midge Ure and Trevor Horn @trevorhornmusic . A side remixed by Trevor Horn. Band Aid "Do They Know It's Christmas?" #vinyl 12" single. 1984 Mercury Records/PolyGram Australian pressing FEED 112.
We are very excited to have played a part in hosting all these musicians as they donated their time and talents to a great cause. We’ve had our fun making it, please help us spread the word.
