Seymour Quigley, who helped to curate the album writes:
“Back in July 2017, Cambridge’s legendary R*E*P*E*A*T Records and my twatty little label Pure Deadly released ‘This Is The Sound Of Sugar Town Volume 2’: a 12” vinyl and download album featuring thirteen amazing acts from the UK’s unsung DIY rock capital, Bury St Edmunds, all the profits for which were donated to East Anglian mental health charity Julian Support.
The fantastic news is that ‘…Volume 2’ has raised enough money for Julian Support to pilot a new, accessible and inclusive Music Appreciation group, in partnership with Culture Quest (part of the Restoration Trust), for people with mental health issues. The group will be run at grass-roots Bury St Edmunds music venue The Hunter Club during October; its impact will then be assessed by Norwich UEA’s School of Psychology to develop a further bid for ongoing funding.
In order to help raise further funding for Julian Support’s music therapy projects, a new download-only compilation, ‘This Was The Sound Of Sugar Town’, will be released (again by R*E*P*E*A*T) on Friday 20th October.‘
