World AIDS Day single - cubase artist 7 STRONG LANGUAGE!

Postby Made in Macau » Sun Nov 24, 2013 7:58 pm

In November '88 my brother died of AIDS. Since then I've organized or taken part in fundraisers each World AIDS Day (Dec 1st)
This year my band have written and recorded a single which is available to download on iTunes and Amazon, and in 1 week's time on Android.
It's by Bandcamp! and Bob and it's called '*knuf* AIDS'
I'll explain the title.
My 22 year old son - who never met the dead uncle after whom he is named - was playing a set at at last year's fundraiser when he launched into a speech about having raised money for AIDS his whole life and how he was sick of the shadow it had cast over us 'and you know what - let's end this *flower* disease; - *knuf* AIDS!' He then had the whole audience chanting, 'F.U.C.K.A.I.D.S. - *knuf* AIDS!' which made me simultaneously laugh and cry. So in the following months, that coalesced into the disco joy that is this year's fundraising song.
If you'd like to buy a copy, thank you, that would be great as all money will go to HIV/AIDS charities.
If you would like to watch our video for the song you can see it here
If you'd like to hear a profanity free version at no charge go here; - where all the music was made using cubase.
If anyone feels this is in poor taste or too frivolous - I had no wish to cause offence and I'm sorry if it causes any. This was an honest attempt to make something good out of something bad.

Thanks for reading.

I also have lost way to many friends and this is A great cause. I'm playing a benefit for World Aids Day Sunday which provides Free testing/ and great's a 4 piece band w/ 5 vocalist doing mostly original stuff. I wish you hadn't edited the vocals out as it would be very listenable if you hadn't
