I may have said something about just wanting stuff to give away as downloads for the Advent Calendar, but this is for a good cause, so it gets to break the rules.
Christmas Pimping, Everybody's Gimping, is a charity single for Caoimhe featuring Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5, The Girobabies and The Plimptons due for release 10th December on Traffic Cone records.
Caoimhe is only three years old, she has Anaplastic Ependymoma with Spinal Metastases, a grade three malignant brain tumour.
To give Caoimhe conventional radiotherapy in this country would leave her neurologically devastated, blindness, deafness and stunted growth are only some of the side effects, however Proton Therapy is a targeted revolutionary method of irradiating young children, It is so accurate there are very little side effects, but is not available in this country.
The bands involved in the single decided to get together to do their bit to get Caoimhe to America for treatment. Everybody involved, the bands, producer Robbie Gunn, Dixon Street Studios and Video Director Daryl Cockburn have given up their time and effort and every single penny raised will be used for Caoimhe (pronounced Keeva), people can alternatively donate at http://www.justgiving.com/
The single will be available to buy on all the usual download sites from December 10th.
There's also a chairty gig to raise funds for Caoimhe taking place this Thursday, hence my mention of the single a wee bit in advance of release. Jamfest takes place at Nice & Sleazy on Thursday night, with performances from all involved in Christmas Pimping, along with loads of others. More details on the gig can be found on Facebook.
Now, here's the video for Christmas Pimping, Everybody's Gimping
