  • Willkommen Foxswap – Free download album of Willkommen artists covering songs by Willkommen artists

    A brief note of explanation, from Danny Green, Willkommen Collective:

    What better way to feel honoured as a songwriter than to have a respected co-conspirator sing one of your songs? I asked everyone I could possibly think of to choose a song by someone else in the collective and record it before Willkommen Foxtrot, the festival in Brighton on 11th September. I only gave them 3 weeks. The response has been amazing.

    They are a beguiling mix of studio recordings, four track documents and dictaphone style room recordings. I’m enjoying hearing these voices sing something totally unexpected.

    So, we’re all up in time for the Foxtrot preview night ECHO at the Caxton Arms on Saturday 10th, and FOXTROT on 11th at Stanmer House.

    Tickets for both events are here: www.wegottickets.com/willkommen

    On the charitable side:

    The other reason to do this compilation is to draw attention to the fact that almost all of the Willkommen Records stock went up in flames at the PIAS warehouse during the riots. We have a few spare albums albums kicking around in a box under the stairs but that’s about it. It is time to raise funds for the LabelLove PIAS/AIM fund which is helping labels to continue to release great music during the fall out.

    £10 seems like a fair amount to ask for such an undertaking. The download itself will be free (otherwise we run the risk of getting into all sorts of legal trouble), but we ask that you make a £10 donation to the fund which you can do by directly transferring funds from your account to the fund with these details. This way ensures 100% of funds go to the cause and there are no merchant/transaction fees creaming off the top.
