New Minus 5 song available for download at charity site
Scott just uploaded a new Minus 5 song called "Evil Doesn't Listen To Your Radio"
to a charity fund-raising site called usemusic.org
. The site makes it incredibly easy for bands/artists to donate to charity through their music. The Song will be only available here and not on the forthcoming 5 LP set "Scott The Hoople In The Dungeon of Horror" due out on record store day 2014. The song can be had for a mere 1$ but you can always donate more as all the profits go to Planned Parenthood Columbia Willamette
Check it all out
and while you are on the site be sure to check out songs from other Minus 5 alumni: Casey Neill
, Jenny Conlee
, Ezra Holbrook
and a whole slew of other great artists.
