“We hope our efforts make a difference even if it is minute. It means a lot to help a charity with such a great focus.”

Going against plenty of the preconceptions about punk this Underground Revolution event: A Crisis of Conscience – 40 years of Punk Festival was held in aid of Alan McGee’s Musicians Against Homelessness and the Big Issue Foundation.
Last Saturday the 24th of September, Oasis guru Alan McGee teamed up with Hereford’s popular Post-Punk band the Linerunners and local music promoters’ The Underground Revolution and brought a memorable all day Punk Festival. The music mogul started Musicians Against Homelessness earlier this year to raise funds for the homeless charity Crisis.
Musicians Against Homelessness is supported by Happy Mondays legend Shaun Ryder, Irvine Walsh, Cast, the Buzzcocks, Black Grape, The Jesus & Mary Chain and hundreds more bands.
Hereford Music Promoters The Underground Revolution devote their time to supporting bands and charities with a focus on social awareness, as well as local bands who otherwise would not have an outlet for their music.
