As announced a few days ago, Love Music Hate Racism is releasing a CD to fight the BNP's inflitration in British schools, and Dirty Pretty Things and Babyshambles are both seriously involved in this project (the CD is curated by Drew McConnell). Alison, LMHR's ambassador in the Libertines camp, has posted the CD tracklist in the LHMR website. Here's her entire post:
The LMHR CD for schools, supported by the NUT, has drawn a fantastic response - with many top artists contributing exclusive tracks (see below). Even better, the NME have now come on board, meaning that the CD will be covermounted on their 13th October issue, and that nme.com will be hosting a LMHR minisite where a week after the mag comes out you can download all the tracks alongside information on fighting racism and fascism and on putting on your own LMHR event.
This special edition of the NME will feature a special LMHR-themed cover bringing together Lethal Bizzle, Babyshambles, Bloc Party, Dirty Pretty Things, The View and The Enemy, as well as feature articles about LMHR including a roundtable discussion with the artists on racism, the BNP and music.
Schools, colleges and other organisations can order bulk copies of empty LMHR CD sleeves in which your own pick of the tracks can be burned to CD after you’ve downloaded them from the website. The empty sleeves will also act as a flyer for LMHR and will be distributed in schools across the country.
Here’s the 100% confirmed tracklisting, in alphabetical order, with one or two surprises still possible - it’s still tbc which will be on the NME cover CD and which will be exclusive download-only tracks:-
