The Good, The Bad And The Queen join anti-racism gig
The Good, The Bad & The Queen have been added to the bill of the forthcoming Love Music Hate Racism Carnival gig.

Damon Albarn, Simon Tong, Tony Allen and Paul Simonon, who played bass with The Clash at the original Rock Against Racism gig in 1978, will help celebrate the event's 30th anniversary on April 27 in London's Victoria Park.

"It is what it is…musicians against racism. I was against it then and I still am today," said Simonon in a statement.

Original 1978 headliner Jerry Dammers of The Specials is also set to perform at the free event, along with The View, Patrick Wolf and Hard-Fi, among others.
