Wow, Saturday at the Foundations Fuck Brexit Edition was one heck of a day! We also raised a load of money for charity, so it’s good times all round.

It saw the last gig of both St Lucifer and Caffeine Kill in their current line-ups but never fear as both bands will have new music out in 2020. It was also the first, but not last time Vain Machine played this side of the Atlantic.

Add in the biggest singalong to Spray yet, blistering performances from Ded.Pixel, Valentich and the launch of the new single from Weimar, it was an action-packed event with the bands playing to a packed venue throughout.

More importantly, we raised £188.58 in donations, which AnalogueTrash and Valentine Records will round up to £300, with the money to be donated to the Trussell Trust, as well as some very kind donations of food and clothing too.

A big thank you to the bands, the fans and the venue for making it such a great day, and a big shout-out for John Mitchell and Mark Lawrence for going above and beyond. And last but not least, I’d like to express my gratitude Emily Oldfield, David Fox and Adrian Thompson for making it all happen in the first place. Here’s looking forward to further live music adventures!

In another bit of related news, we’ve raised £83.40 from our digital label samplers (which we will round up to £100), to be donated to Refugee Action who do a lot of good work and deserve a lot more recognition for it. Without your support for the sampler and the label, this donation would not be possible.

There’s going to be some big behind-the-scenes changes going on with AnalogueTrash in the next few months, but 2020 will see some cracking gigs and some great music coming your way from ourselves and the wider AT family.

We can’t wait to share more good music and good news with you very soon. In the mean time, if you’re local to Manchester, make sure you don’t miss Vieon when they bring their Lost Worlds Live show to The Eagle Inn on the 30th of November.
