Hot Charity

Today I bought a record on my lunch break. This is good because it allowed me to support vinyl and give to charity at the same time. What the hell am I talking about? Well, here's the info (taken from the Oxfam website):

Arctic Monkeys have recorded another music industry first by releasing their new single, ‘Crying Lightning’, through Oxfam’s network of 700 charity shops on the high street and online. The release marks the first time Oxfam shops have sold a new release single for 25 years. All the proceeds from the sale in Oxfam’s shops go to our work fighting poverty.

Kinda cool that you can support two good causes at the same time for the price of a sandwich. If you live in the UK and want to support this cause and don't want to go outside then you can go HERE

All in all, a good thing. Shame the songs are shite though.
