Cancer....it's one of 'those' words; words we whisper and skirt around, the 'MacBeth' of everyday life. But cancer is something that affects us all at some stage - either directly or someone we love. There are around 363,000 new cancer cases in the UK every year, that's more than 990 every day (2014-2016), that's every 1.5 minutes that someone in the UK is diagnosed. Luckily there are fantastic organisations like Macmillan. Macmillan Cancer Support is one of the largest British charities and provides specialist health care, information and financial support to people affected by cancer. It also looks at the social, emotional and practical impact cancer can have, and campaigns for better cancer care...the work they do is invaluable to sufferers and their families.
Like all charities Macmillan depend on the good will (and, to be frank, the money) of everyday folk to continue their amazing work. To that end we present the Psych Against Cancer compilation...all proceeds will go directly to Macmillan. This project came about from the Psych Lovers Facebook group...a group of likeminded folk united by their love of fuzzy, trippy and psychedelic music. Among this group are many, many artists, label and producers who have all proved to be exceptionally generous and have donated tracks for this megacomp...some tracks are exclusive to this project...to these people and to the Psych Lovers group we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and love...you are all amazing! Also, many thanks to Brett Savage for not only the cover art but the limited art print that will shortly be available to buy on the Merch page.
