Starring bigger names like Asian Dub Foundation, King Adora, Kinesis and The Dawn Parade alongside new comers and soon to be great Virgin Suicides, Neo and Antihero.

the end result is as exciting as it is
The final track by Asian Dub Foundation sums up the whole CD with this
amazing song fusing together too many styles to list. This CD has
Good music for a good cause. You have no excuse not to get this record.
