Outlaws Join Tsunami Charity Wave
Author: Jonty Skrufff
Sunday, February 6, 2005West Country bootleg bandits the Outlaws have launched a new website offering their "Two Many Fools Following Too Many Rules' album for free download, with a button asking downloaders to make a contribution to the DEC Tsunami Relief Fund.
"We've made the site especially to help raise funds for the relief effort," Pete Outlaw told Skrufff this week.
"We released the album last year, people liked it and doing this seemed like a positive way of doing something. People can download it for free if they want, but we're hoping that they won't."
In more Tsunami related news, thousands of Islamic militants demonstrated in Morocco at the weekend in support of a newspaper which blamed the disaster on South East Asia's sex industry. Local newspaper Attajdid refused to back down over their claims, the Telegraph reported, in conflict with pro-government media.
"We believe, as all Muslims always have, that earthquakes and disasters depend on the will of God," the paper stressed, following the demonstrations. "We are surprised that people who think in this way have their right to free expression scorned."
