It features a multitude of musicians / artists from the Electronics / Punk / Noise world(s) including some friends of mine and assorted fellow-travellers in the UK (and beyond) Noise / Refusnik Axis. Bren from Hacker Farm and myself recorded some tracks as WHY ME? - it was an utter no-brainer (and a delight!) to contribute one when asked. (I'm fairly sure I'm a member of one of the other groups on the comp too LOL, but didn't actually play on the featured track Double-LOL)
It's a damn fine comp as well as an extremely good cause: 26 tracks for a fiver - oh, c'mon - please donate or at least support by linking, Tweeting, etc.
People self-organising and supporting one another in the face of monstrous neolib shittiness: gotta be a good thing, eh?

Some info on the Simon Community and the comp:
"This compilation is a benefit for London homeless support group The Simon Community. Minimum download price is £5, but please feel free to donate more if you can afford to.
"The Simon Community operates a totally non-judgemental policy when assisting homeless people, regardless of lifestyle. As well as conducting regular street work such as food distribution, they run a drop-in/advice centre (staffed by volunteers/former and current homeless people) and musical workshops in Camden.
"Surprisingly, they remain quite low key compared to some of the other homeless support groups in the capital (such as St Mungo’s) although they’ve been active for 50+ years. They are entirely non-government-funded, operate as a real democratic community (ie, not just a director determining campaigns - homeless people have input too)."
