Bands and artists: Badly Drawn Boy + Gideon Conn + Jim Noir + Jo Rose + Josephine + Liam Frost + Liz Green + Silverclub + The Travelling Band The charity MaK (Manchester Aid to Kosovo) have created a CD compilation album called MaK10 with most famous Manchester based artists and bands which launches next week with parties in Manchester and London on the 5th and 7th April. The album was conceived at the ten year anniversary of the Podujeve massacre, hence the name, and after two years of work from Jo and the MaK team, is being launched on 4th April with a gig at the Deaf Institute, and on 7th April in London at Union Chapel. A total of eighteen Mancunian acts have donated their music to the compilation, including Doves, Elbow, Stephen Fretwell, Cherry Ghost, The Beep Seals, Nine Black Alps and Keith. A select few will be performing at the launch shows, including Gideon Conn, Josephine, Jim Noir, Liz Green, Silverclub and Badly Drawn Boy. “Manchester musicians have contributed to the fundraising in many, many ways” said Pam Dawes of MaK. “This is now the second album, we’ve done lots of concerts, including the Eden Sessions with Damon and Ian Brown which raised £14000, and we’ve done many different musical events, so a huge chunk of funding has come from the work of Manchester musicians. “The park now is nearly finished, the sports field is being sown today, as we speak, and we’ve planted out thousands of trees and shrubs. We do lots of children’s activities out there
