The Story : Letter from Ginger Coyote

After the death of my pal Nick Traina, I wanted to put together a CD to help make changes and awareness in the music Community. I had read an article about Louis Posen at Hopeless Records and the new label he was launching called Sub City Records. I contacted Louis with my idea and we chose a non profit organization H.E.A.R. Hearing Awareness and Education for Rockers to receive the benefits of this CD. H.E.A.R. was formed in San Francisco, California by Contractions bassist Kathy Peck who suffered hearing loss while in her band. H.E.A.R. provides hearing tests, support, education along with distributing ear plugs at various concerts throughout the country. I then began contacting different bands to participate in the compilation CD. I wanted to combine New School bands (Damnation Link 80, The Bellrays, Jon Cougar Concentration Camp, Scared Of Chaka, Other Star People) with Old Schooi bands (The Avengers, The Lewd, Toxic Reasons The Vktms, Contractions) I also wanted to include bands from around the world (Shonen Knife, Electric Summer, The Tedio Boys) to unite musicians for this cause. Actor Peter Coyote was also in support and donated a track. "Hey Nick You Did Okay" by the White Trash Debutantes is dedicated to the memory of the late Nick traina and includes back up vocals from Jennfier Finch (L7, Other Star People), Amy Carlson (Emmy nominated actress for "Another World"), Xander Smith (Other Star People), Tequila Mockingbird (Nina Hagen ) and Paige Darling (The Darlings) this CD includes a lot of surprises and combines some of the finest talent together talent together on one CD.
