On Friday 7th July 2017, R*E*P*E*A*T Records and Pure Deadly are extremely proud to release THIS IS THE SOUND OF SUGAR TOWN VOLUME 2: a 12” vinyl and download album featuring thirteen amazing acts from the UK’s unsung DIY rock capital, Bury St Edmunds.
Following the critical success of Volume 1 back in November 2015 (which received airplay and support from Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq and Tom Ravenscroft at 6music, John Kennedy at Radio X and Radio One’s Huw Stephens), Volume 2 features new and shiny tracks by BRACKEN, CATHEDRALS AND CARS, THE CUTS, GAFFA TAPE SANDY, HORSE PARTY, JACK RUNDELL, JANET STREET SLAUGHTER, SIAH, SUBURBAN MINDS, SUN SCREAM, TUNDRA, THE VIRTUES and THE WILSONS, plus an exclusive cover painted by celebrated artist and musician (and former Long Blonde) KATE JACKSON. All profits from this fine compilation will be donated to local charity Julian Support, which helps people with mental health issues to lead independent lives.
The 12” album is strictly limited to 300 copies and can be pre-ordered now (with immediate download) from www.repeatfanzine.bandcamp.com
Discussing the choice of charity, co-curator Seymour Quigley explained:
“From my early teens up until the end of my twenties, my life was blighted and almost destroyed by mental health problems I felt unable to discuss or disclose. By the time I was forced to seek help, I’d lost my job, my home and most of my friends. With the right support I was able to rebuild my life, but I was lucky where many others are not. Due to its all-too-often invisible nature, mental illness is the unspoken pandemic of our age. Organisations like Julian Support offer a vital lifeline, supporting people with mental health problems through their darkest times and helping them to regain a sense of agency over their own lives.”
THIS IS THE SOUND OF SUGAR TOWN VOLUME 2 will be available in all good record shops (while stocks last) and on iTunes/Spotify etc from Friday 7th July.
