'50 Minutes' of cult recording artists to care for the victims of torture


profits to: “The Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture”
released on Exercise1 Records, 30th October 2006

Take 50 amazing cutting edge cult recording artists like Daniel Johnston, MC Lars, Jeremy Warmsley, Emmy The Great, Ladyfuzz, Trademark, Hot Puppies and Piney Gir from the coolest labels like Transgressive, Truck, Fierce Panda and Drowned In Sound. Ask each of them to record an exclusive track exactly 1 minute long for an extremely good cause; The Medical Foundation for the Care of Victims of Torture.

Take all 50 never before released tracks and put them together on one 50 minute CD. Give it a catchy name; “50minutes”. At the same time make the whole thing available as one big digital download and you have one of the most interesting and worthy record releases to be offered to the discerning music fan – ever [well this year at the least].

Huw Stephens at Radio 1 has been playing one track a night every night on his Radio 1 show until he’s played the whole thing! The album is now on The NME Stereo as well...
