Paul Draper (Mansun)

Mark Greaney (JJ72)

Speaking to NME.COM about the show, Sol Wardner from My Vitriol said the band would be lending …And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead their instruments for the gig – only on the condition they don’t trash them.

The gig is also set to raise money for a range of charities including Love Music Hate Racism, Billy Bragg‘s Jail Guitar Doors and Shelter.
