Teenage Cancer Trust charity album

Hey Beat fans, today we bring you news on how you can help to make a difference in the lives of children suffering with cancer by supporting the Teenage Cancer Charity, along some of your ska heroes. This came to our attention through the involvement of a Beat-related band member, Fine Young Cannibals’ Roland Gift!

A special 7″ LP is for sale and here are all the details from the US distributor,
JUMP UP RECORDS:


 

SPECIALIZED – A MODERN TAKE ON THE SPECIALS is a fantastic charity album that came our earlier this year in the UK, featuring 30 great artists covering songs made famous by THE SPECIALS – with proceeds going to the TEENAGE CANCER TRUST charity. As someone who recently lost his father to cancer, we immediately contacted the compilation organizer to see if JUMP UP could be a part of this historic compilation. JUMP UP is donating the majority of the pressing to the SPECIALZED people in the UK to help raise more money for this great and noble cause. You should pick up the full length CD at www.specializedcharityalbum.co.uk – the limited edition 7″ should be available from their site next week too! If you are in the UK or Europe, please wait a little bit for it to become available on the SPECIALIZED site.

Now is your chance to get in on this charity here in the States, with the below single:


This limited edition 7″ single features four tracks from the amazing CD! And we are super excited as it features the return of ROLAND GIFT (of FINE YOUNG CANNIBALS and THE AKRYLYKZ) to the ska world! Woo hoo!

TRACKS:
1) THE VALUES featuring ROLAND GIFT
“You’re Wondering Now”
2) ORANGE STREET
“Doesn’t Make It Alright”
3) KING HAMMOND
“Friday Night Saturday Morning”
4) LEE THOMPSON of MADNESS
Acoustic version of “MADNESS”.


We’re tossing in a fun 2 TONE CLUB membership card as well – which we made because we are ska nerds too!
