Letters to the Editor
The Ideological Sound
Just a quick note regarding an article about musicians for the union band , I just want to say a heartfelt thank you for your article and the time you took to run it.
I have had a great response and hope to increase the interest.
The first performance of this union oritentated band was at the CFMEU rally regarding workcover on the 05/07/00. At that performance there was just the two of us!! but it went really well.. 4000 CFMEU members is a good way to get the idea noticed!!
I have expanded the group to a four piece and am still looking for union members to continue the fight!! and to play for the cause..
Am also looking for a name!! any suggestions truely apprecentive.
Solidarity and peace,
Got a name for a left-leaning outfit? Email them to James on mailto:[email protected] - he'll give you a copy of the unnamed group's first hit CD!
