Help: A Day In The Life

I can't stop listening to this Belle and Sebastian track.

Belle and Sebastian - The Eighth Station Of The Cross Kebab House

From the Belle and Sebastian website:
It's meant to be a little snapshot of pluralist utopia, a kind of "Across The Barricades" type thing. It's a pretty true reflection of some of our impressions of our trip to Israel/Palestine earlier this year. I spent a happy lunch hour in said kebab house at the eighth station of the cross in Jerusalem.

It was specially composed for "Help: A Day In The Life", a compilation of brand new tracks by 22 British indie bands, old and new (The Coral! Babyshambles! Radiohead! Manic Street Preachers! yay British bands!). Amazingly, all tracks were completely recorded in 24 hours, between 8th and 9th September, and released for digital download soon after. All proceeds from the sale of cd go to War Child, providing assistance to children affected by war and conflict.

Definitely worth checking out if you like British bands, plus it's for a good cause. There are so many bands on this cd that I really like! The Coral's contribution is another favourite of mine, as in Maximo Park's.

Preview the tracks and purchase here.
