A one-off compilation album is set to be released in response to the now defunct Burger Records sexual misconduct scandal.
Titled ‘Hands Off!’, the limited cassette will see a release on December 1 and feature songs by Courtney Barnett, Amyl and the Sniffers, L7, Kathleen Hanna, Palehound and many more. Head below for a full list of participating artists.
It was curated by L.G. of Thelma and the Sleaze, May McDonough of the Psychedelic Cherry, Alex White of White Mystery and Charlie Caplan of Tapehead City. L.G. said in a statement:
“This is a statement about there being no tolerance for predatory behaviour in the rock scene. The buck stops here. We wanted to put together something special by womxn to empower womxn, as a collective force for change. Cassette culture and DIY culture must progress and maintain its importance moving forward for a better tomorrow inclusion accessibility for all artists. Fuck boys’ clubs.”
Proceeds from the release “will be donated to profits that focus on the empowerment of young women”, with pre-orders available here.
In summer 2020, Burger Records was hit with multiple accusations of sexual assault surrounding its artists and staff. In response, the label issued an apology and revealed plans to rebrand. In July, the label abandoned the plans and shut down entirely.
