Basson Laubscher and The Violent Free Peace Launch Fundraiser


Capetown Bluesy Rock band Basson Laubscher and The Violent Free Peace have launched their online store to raise funds to offset the loss of their European due to the global coronavirus pandemic outbreak. The band was three dates in on their first European tour when lockdowns started happening and hey needed to get out of Amsterdam and head home. They managed to get the last flight back to Cape Town that was available. This has left them with huge debts. What they’ve done is to launch their online store for merch and physical products so they can try and make some money pay. There is a donation option too, but the focus is on selling mech and vinyl. In an effort to try to recoup some of their cash, they’ve just launched their own online store so fans can order merchandise directly from them. If you’re willing, you can also make a donation via their PayPal account to help cover their costs. Watch Basson’s message here: Continue reading

Fundraiser Launched For Matt Pike To Defer Costs Of Medical Bills


As we’ve been following the story, Matt Pike of High on Fire and Sleep has had a rough time with his health of late. After a banner year in 2018 which saw stellar releases from both of his bands (and an incredible single too), Pike was forced to cancel two huge headline tours due to ill-health. Any artist not able to tour is in a bad place when it comes to earning money to survive. With medical bills mounting and Pike off the road, for now, a friend has stepped in to help. Respected photographer Tim Bugbee of Tinnitus Photography has covered Matt and his bands for many years. Well-known in the scene for his terrific concert photography, candid shots of artists, interviews, and reviews of bands, Tim is a fixture at shows in his home of Boston, as well as around the world. Amassing a huge archive of photos of hundreds of bands, Bugbee has also shot “roughly 30 shows of Sleep and High On Fire”, according to his site. Now he is selling blown-up photos as a fundraiser for Matt, shipping to the US and Canada. There is an autographed option and 100% of the gross profits from sales will go directly to Matt. This is amazingly kind of Tim and for a great cause. Details below at the link to Tim’s website. Continue reading
