'Reverend' Jon McClure, Babyshambles man for London anti-racism gig
Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell's other band, Helsinki, will headline the London ULU on Friday night (November 7), at a gig put on by the Love Music Hate Racism organisation.

The gig has been organised to raise awareness of, and combat, the right-wing British National Party's recent attempts to promote racism in UK schools by giving free CDs containing allegedly racist songs to schoolchildren.

Reverend And The Makers' Jon McClure will perform with the collective at the gig, as will rapper Lowkey who, along with McClure and McConnell, performs in the supergroup Mongrel.

Support will come from Bashy and Riz MC. See Lovemusichateracism.com for more information.
