24 Hour Punks write, record, and release EP in 24 hours for charity
As luck would have it, I ran into this and was amazed!

Six musicians, six bands, one common cause. That is 24 Hour Punks. These UK punks got together one morning and wrote, recorded, and released the EP “Why We Fight” in one day, all for charity. The bands sound is melodic with an old school early 90’s feel, and under the circumstances (or any other circumstances for that matter) has come off brilliantly.
Millie Manders (of Millie Manders and the Shutup):
“(we) set up in a rehearsal room in Bromley and started to write an EP. By 9am we had three songs. We got in our cars and headed to Hidden Track Studios to record, mix and master the three songs…”
The charity it’s all for is AAMF, a UK-based charity which raises funds for research and treatment of cholangiocarcinoma, a rare form of cancer that occurs in the bile ducts. Around 2,000 people a year are diagnosed. There is only one small UK charity, AMMF, that raises money for this form of cancer.
The group has also put together a live show September 9th in London. “24 Hour Punks” (featuring musicians from Popes of Chillitown, The Bar Stool Preachers, Tree House Fire, Call Me Malcolm) will perform a set WRITTEN and REHEARSED in 24 Hours.
The EP is for sale at name your own price, please give this a look and don’t be shy about donating big!
