Released today (August 11), Londoners Squid have unveiled two covers via Bandcamp from all proceeds are being donated to a food bank charity in Bristol.
The two tracks - produced by Dan Carey - on 'Natural Resources' are an off-the-cuff version of cult hero Robert Wyatt’s ‘Pigs (In There)', performed at End Of The Road Festival last year, and their idiosyncratic take on legendary composer Steve Reich’s ‘Clapping Music’.
“We’ve all been affected by Covid in some way, but for people who were already struggling, the pandemic has increased the likelihood of lasting difficulties that will continue after lockdown comes to an end," say the band. "All of the proceeds from this release will be given to the East Bristol Food Bank who are offering vital support in the local area, covering the whole city across 5 outlets."
