Last week, Squid released covers of Robert Wyatt’ ‘Pigs(In There)’ and Steve Reich’s ‘Clapping Music’ via Bandcamp, with all proceeds being donated to the East Bristol Food Bank.

“We’ve all been affected by COVID in some way, but for people who were already struggling, the pandemic has increased the likelihood of lasting difficulties that will continue after lockdown comes to an end,” the band said in a statement about the covers.

“All of the proceeds from this release will be given to the East Bristol Food Bank who are offering vital support in the local area, covering the whole city across 5 outlets.” You can find out more information about the East Bristol Food Bank here.
