Mani tells NME.COM "It should be a wicked party"...
PRIMAL SCREAM‘s MANI, RICHARD FEARLESS from DEATH IN VEGAS and cult film director HARMONY KORINE are amongst the names set to appear at the GREENPEACE anti-ESSO benefit in LONDON’s FABRIC on September 6, NME.COM can reveal.
They will be joined by Aphex Twin video director Chris Cunningham, Howie B, James Lavelle, Arthur Baker, Zero 7, Stanton Warriors and host of others at the event. Greenpeace, Friends Of The Earth and environmental pressure group People & Planet are pushing for a boycott of oil giant Esso in order to push them become more environmentally friendly.
“It wasn’t hard to decide on becoming involved in this,” Mani told NME.COM. “It’s an issue we should all be concerned with. It’s going to be a wicked party.” In their statement, Stop Esso organisers said, “The Kyoto Protocol is only a step towards stabilising the world’s climate. But it is a vital one. No country has the right to declare it dead and condemn us all to the nightmare of global warming.”
The event runs from 10pm-4am and costs £10.
