West Suffolk musicians have banded together to raise money for Bury Women’s Refuge.
Music lovers packed out independent record shop Vinyl Hunter for the release of This is the Sound of Sugar Town, featuring 12 bands from the town. The day was organised by Seymour Quigley, of Bury’s Horse Party, who helped compile it.
There were live performances and DJ sets by many of the bands on the record including Tryal Of Witches, The Machismo’s and Scare The Normals. Fans also queued in the rain to hear a rare performance from Miss Black America who reformed especially for the day.
Profits from album sales will go to the shelter. There was also a raffle, stall and collection which raised more than £200 on the day.
Richard Rose, of Cambridge-based R*E*P*E*A*T Records, who co-released the album, said: “I love the diverse, inclusive and creative music scene of Bury St Edmunds and I am very proud to have been involved with this album and this wonderful event, especially as it is raising money for such a deserving cause”.
