Sick Kids!


Youngteam Records are proud to announce their latest project: A compilation album entitled ‘No Colour Too Strong To Paint’ which features 21 of our friends from Edinburgh raising money for the Sick Kids Hospital.

The album will be available from the 7th May via digital download. There is also a fantastic launch night party planned for that Saturday too. The gig will be played by 8 of the bands that feature on the release and its being hosted by our good pals Ginger Music Promotions at Maggie’s Chambers (above the 3 Sisters, Cowgate, Edinburgh). Tickets are available from Ticketweb here and are priced just 5 quid.

The Sick Kids Hospital opens its doors to over 100,000 sick or injured children from the East Coast of Scotland every year and it relies heavily on people spreading awareness about the great, literally life-changing work they do and good people like yourself donating funds. You can help by coming to the gig and picking up a copy of the CD.

That’s right! We’re pressing a very limited, deluxe version of the complete album and it will be on sale at the launch gig only!

Here’s the lineup for the gig:  Frantic Chant, White Heath, My Electric Love Affair, Steve Heron, OK Social Club, The Steals, The Remnant Kings and David Winpenny. Not bad for a fiver, I think you’ll agree.
