Annie Hardy asks for financial assistance

Giant Drag are appealing to fans to fund the cost of making their second album (March 17).

The band were dropped by their record label Interscope after their 2006 debut ‘Hearts And Unicorns’.

Writing on Giant Drag’s Myspace blog about the funding for the second album lead singer and only permanent member Annie Hardy said: “Some people have recommended I put up a Paypal donation button to help speed this process up (and help me eat the occasional sandwich if I’m lucky) so finally today, with the help of my new intern Audrey, the donation button has arrived.

“So if you feel like giving up a buck or a million of them I’d be very grateful! Even if it’s just because you are riddled with guilt from illegally downloading the first album and you feel the need to repent, any reason will do and every penny counts.”
