“Out of Sunbury Australia, RUM FOR LEGBA weave together open tuned 5-string guitars, and rollicking jungle drums. It’s raucous hypnotic blues. They believe in the healing properties of juke joint boogie; the possession of the spirit; cranked valve amps, and the eternal mission to transcend time and space.”
Rattlin’ Bones Blackwood – guitars & vocals
Dazz Condy – drums & percussion
“Aldora Britain Records presents the second release in our ‘Rumours Of Light’ series. This album is a 60 song digital boxset in support of the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) and the people of Ukraine. Our first release has raised £157 so far and we hope to do so much more through using the power of music. This project features a further 60 artists from ten different countries and is specifically in aid of DEC’s Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.”
“You know, I always tried to be a humanist, a pacifist. Even our music is soaked with peace and joy, but this whole situation makes me feel a lot of anger and hate. Not only this war, but also the fact that due to disgusting and lousy propaganda, 85% of Russians support this war. They honestly believe that they have a right to do this. Today, I read another propaganda article where they were saying that all Ukrainians who fought against Russia and supported resistance should be murdered. All intelligent and culture-related people should be repressed. The Ukrainian language must be banned, vanished and forgotten. You know why? Because they claim that Ukrainians are Nazis…
“THIS IS ABSURD!
“This is even worse than what Orwell wrote in 1984, ‘War is peace, freedom is slavery’. They are putting everything upside down.”
— Ukrainian psychedelic rock musician Art Dudko, of the band Straytones
