Tribute to Joe Strummer: A Benefit For Strummerville With performances by Disaster Committee, The Future Unwritten, The Headies, The Keefs, Tin Can Ramblers, The Cocks and more! Who We (Strummerville) Are Set up by the friends and family of Joe Strummer in the year after his death, we seek to reflect Joe’s unique contribution to the music world by offering support, resources and performance opportunities to artists who would not normally have access to them. We are based in west London and we’re a UK registered charity & totally independent non-political music charity. What We (Strummerville) Do We reach out to music projects around the globe, such as WAYout Project in Sierra Leone. We also work with bands and musicians here in the UK to help get their music recorded and we provide a platform for them to showcase their music. We also put on the odd gig or two in London. In Action Recent projects have been to install a recording studio and provide instruments and training to WAYout project in Sierra Leone, set up a music room in Tilinanu, Malawi as well as rehearsal rooms in Belfast, London with more planned.

“Without Dreams, We Are Only Sleeping (4/5) “The tracks are soulful, honest accounts of the constant pressures of the modern life with a lingering nostalgia of yester years. It is vividly reminiscent of the period in our lives when we were in relentless conflict between running away and staying right where we are. The nine songs are intensely written and paired evocatively with some 90s pop acoustics. With clear influences from The Smiths, Leonard Cohen and The Jam, among others. Apart from the pounding percussions and Castro’s raw, robust vocals, the record is cleverly precise and short, with a running time of 32 minutes.””
