News of the ongoing “moral rehabilitation” of punk rock youth in Indonesia has obviously been spreading like wildfire since it was first reported earlier this week. As could be expected, the global punk community is fighting back!
Mike Virus (The Virus/Cheap Sex/Evacuate) is putting together what is turning into a fairly massive, international compilation to benefit punks in Indonesia. “Punk Aid: Jakarta Calling” is quickly taking shape, and will be a $5 downloadable compilation. All of the proceeds will be forwarded along to the Indonesian bands that contribute; nobody else will make a dime from the project.
Click here to see the current list of bands (like Antiseen, Krum Bums, Total Chaos, and many more) that have agreed to take part. If you want your band to be on it, or if you want to help out anyway, Virus has a webpage setup with all of the necessary information. Click here to check it out and help out. We’ll have more on this project in the days to come.
