Babyshambles & Co. fight racism.

"Artists including Babyshambles, The View and Albert Hammond Jr. are teaming up to tackle cynical racists trying to exploit music fans.

The acts have been marshalled by Babyshambles bassist Drew McConnell to appear on a special CD to counter an attempt by far-right groups to sneak their messages across.

Following a similar ploy in the US, individuals with links to hate groups like Combat 18 are assembling a CD of white power bands for a compilation entitled 'Project Schoolyard'.

The racists plan to hand out free CDs to young children outside schools.

Deciding he couldn't tolerate this assault on young minds, McConnell has teamed-up with Trangressive Records singer Lisa Moorish and the Love Music Hate Racism campaign to release their own CD this summer."
