Cornelius on Darfur Benefit CD

November 28, 2007

Now you can support a good cause and J-rock at the same time!

“Causes 1 is a limited edition charity CD to benefit Darfur, which includes exclusive and rare tracks donated by Animal Collective, The Black Keys, Bloc Party, Bright Eyes, Cornelius, The Cure, David Sylvian, Death Cab for Cutie, The (International) Noise Conspiracy, The Shins remixed by Clint Mansell, Spoon, Teargas & Plateglass, Thievery Corporation and Travis.

100% of the proceeds from the sale of this CD will go to three non-profit organizations: Doctors Without Borders, Human Rights Watch, and Oxfam America.

We urge you to help those working in Darfur by picking up your copy of the album.

Although estimates of the number of people killed by the conflict in Darfur vary widely from 200,000 to 400,000, what is certain is that more than 2 million people have fled their homes because of the fighting, and 4 million are now in need of humanitarian assistance—making this one of the worst crises in the world today.”

MUCC and D’espairsRay on Taste of Chaos 2008

November 28, 2007

It’s confirmed, MUCC and D’espairsRay will play 46 unconfirmed dates on next year’s Taste of Chaos festival. Warcon Records released Dir en grey’s Withering to Death album after they played at Taste of Chaos.  Does that mean these two bands will be seeing American releases as well?  MUCC have already announced they’re new album will be seeing a March 2008 release in the U.S. and Europe.  No further details are available.  I’ve never listened to either of these two bands but it’s always exciting to see more Japanese bands touring in the states.
