There are, as you'd expect, no end of Japanese relief fundraising ideas making the rounds, but let's highlight a couple of Bandcamp compilations that provide much musical goodness for a good cause. Audio Antihero's Bob Hope Would is pay what you like as long as it's at least £3.99 for offcuts, demos and rarities from Nosferatu D2, Meursault, Darren Hayman, The Victorian English Gentlemens Club, Paul Hawkins & The Awkward Silences, Shoes & Socks Off, Stagecoach, My First Tooth, Benjamin Shaw, Jack Hayter, Le Reno Amps and others. Proceeds are split between Japan Society, Shelterbox, Red Cross, Save The Children and The Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund. Meanwhile Tasukete (Help) only benefits the Japanese Red Cross, but is £5 for 36 tracks encompassing Three Trapped Tigers, Gallops, Dark Dark Horse, Minnaars, Tall Ships and Bastions. Any Japan relief benefits appropriate for a STN audience that you know of, leave a comment.
