SRR 044 Howard Hello/Greenness Split 2xCD
Right off the bat...let's start by saying that this is a very special one for Sick Room Records. SRR044 is a Benefit 2xCD release. All artists' proceeds/money go to Childrens' Musical Education in St. Augustine, Florida. It is also a rare opportunity for two members of Rumah Sakit [Kenseth Thibideau (Howard Hello, Rumah Sakit, Sleeping People, Pinback, Goblin Cock) & Mitch Cheney (Greenness, Rumah Sakit, Sweep the Leg Johnny, Species Being)] to get together and create new music along with old and new friends all in the name of trying to make a small difference for future musicians.
State funding for Arts & Humanities seems to be the first portion of the budget cut from children's education and setting up a fund to help the local people dictate where their tax deductible money goes is a great step in the right direction. We only wish that we could do more...that's where you come in...help some kids out and listen to some great music in the process...simple.
