He's auctioning off studio time for Breast Cancer Care
Portishead‘s Geoff Barrow has announced that he’s auctioning off recording time in his Bristol studio, and it’s all for a very worthy cause.
The producer and instrumentalist for the pioneering trip-hop group has launched an online auction to raise funds with Breast Cancer Care UK, and the winner can expect a whole day in Barrow’s Invada’s Studios, where he will personally oversee proceedings.
Announcing the auction on Twitter, Barrow wrote: “I will write with you/band in my studio for one day for the biggest charity donation.”
Outlining the details of the auction, he added: “The deadline for the studio time donation is the 24th of July, could be a band or a solo artist any type of music.”
Unsurprisingly, deep-pocketed fans have been tabling their bids pretty swiftly, and the highest bid stands at £1000.
Last month, Portishead released their cover of ABBA’s ‘SOS,’ which was recorded for 2015 film High Rise.
They dedicated the track to murdered MP Jo Cox, and ended the video for the track with her quote: “We have far more in common than which divides us.”
