Thanks to the support of the ever-reliable UK punk scene, Ian Glasper’s new book, ‘The Scene That Would Not Die : Twenty Years of Post-Millennial Punk in the UK’ has been doing pretty well in the first six months since its publishing. The soppy author has decided that he wants to give back with a large chunk of his royalties from the book sales, so Earth Island Books have now made sizeable donations to the following charities of his choice on his behalf: Sea Shepherd UK, British Refugee Council and Food for Yemen (SKTWelfare).
Here's what the charities had to say:
Sea Shepherd UK
Hi Ian, Louise and everyone at Earth Island Books, That is really great - many thanks from all of us at Sea Shepherd UK.
For the oceans…
We are extremely grateful that you would think of us for your very generous donation, and your kindness will go a long way towards transforming the lives of refugees and people seeking asylum in the UK.
Food for Yemen
We are immensely grateful that you chose us as your designated charity for this donation. May this donation bring blessings for you and your family.
Needless to say, the book is still available worldwide, and if you order from us, you can still pick up the poster with it and the double compilation CD featuring over half the bands in the book as well. We really appreciate the interest in this publication and the support it’s had from the scene. We all hope it helps continue to spread the word of contemporary punk and alternative culture. Love, peace & punk.
