This compilation sees bands from the UK playing their own styles of DIY music. The concept of the album is to compile unreleased material from a range of UK bands past and present with the aim of raising some cash for the 1 in 12 repair fund, as well as showing a snapshot of a micro cosm within the UK DIY music scene.

It is very important in this time of financial recession and an overtly online culture within music to promote spaces which provide somewhere for us idiots to make a racket. Whether this is a club, artspace, library, cafe, someones house, whatever, it's something we need to defend, when it's gone we have no where to make our music heard without compromise.
To receive the album, click buy and pay the 1 quid to get your download.
