Bag it up: the #mcrwithlove compilation is out now
Manchester With Love is a 226-track compilation of Manchester music to raise funds following the Manchester attack.
The album is a tenner and you can get it from Bandcamp and Boomkat. That's less than 5 pence per track - less than you'd pay for a carrier bag.
If you think each track is worth more than a carrier bag, say a bag-for-life with flowers on, or one of those hessian totes that look really scratchy, you have the option to pay more.
It's worth it - all funds go to the 'I Love Manchester' fund by the Red Cross.
Here are some names on the album: 808 State, A Certain Ratio, The Buzzcocks, Caro C, Denis Jones, Fingathing, From The Kites Of San Quentin, Honeyfeet, Illum Sphere, Matthew Whitaker, Mind On Fire, Nabb Gang, Neko Neko, Swing Ting, The Whip.
That's 14 carrier bags right there. That's a proper big shop. Have a listen to some highlights here - and give money too.
