It’s now become an annual tradition here at Long Division to release a record in aid of a cause or charity. This year is our fifth and we’ve decided to work with Wakefield Samaritans. We met them earlier in the year and was both massively impressed by the dedication of the their volunteer force but also slightly dismayed at the huge fundraising task they have to keep the service going. The support they offer to people can be life saving and we wanted to support that.
So this year’s record – Division Five – is available now as Pay What You Want. 33 performers from this year’s event have contributed tracks, including brand new ones from CUD and Dark Dark Horse. They have all done that completely in the name of the charity with all the income (minus Bandcamp’s charges) going to The Samaritans.
It’s a great way to begin to get to know the performers this year and start digging out those gems you never knew you loved so much…
