You Don't Have To But...

Under normal circumstances MP3 blogging is all about us giving stuff to you, for free, because we want to. Now, I know I've not even been around a month yet, but current events have made me think that, just this once, maybe it's not such a bad idea to ask readers/listeners to bust out a few notes. So, if you've enjoyed Breaking Ranks so far, it would be really nice if you visited here, or, for non-Brits, a similar organisation in your own country, and gave them something. By my reckoning, if only half the people who have downloaded the first dancehall mix on this site gave £5, that would add up to almost £3,000 - obviously no one needs telling that a total like that could be put to way better use right now than the couple of pints or three-quarters of a 12-inch single it works out as if you keep it in your own pocket. There'll be plenty more mixes and things up next year, once I'm back from New York, so you could even treat it as a sort of vaguely karmic subscription, if you like. Either way, a happy, safe 2005 to all of you.
