STAND UP & SHOUT
Hard-Hitting Songs For Social Change and a New Australia
Released in conjunction with GetUp!, a CD of over 75 minutes featuring songs about issues that affect all of us: AWA's, refugees, the environment, unionism, greedy business, inept politicians and how the hell we always seem to be at war. Featuring Eric Bogle, Solidarity Choir, Judy Small, Jack Mancor, Touchwood, Borderers, Margaret Walters & John Warner, Bernard Carney, Steve Beavis, Mike McClellan, Pat Drummond, Working Voices Choir, Rachel Gadd, Dermot Dorgan, Danny Spooner, Peter Hicks, Bruce Watson, Wheeze & Suck Band, Barney Pilgrams, Jim Leeses, Jim Low, Kuta Beach Band. Yes, you'd be right in thinking these are some of Australia's best rebel songwriters and singers.
All artist royalties go to GetUp!
