Walk 4 Water on the Millennium Promenade

walk4water

Wow! Another fundraiser for No More Durty Water by students of South Downs College.

Walk 4 Water Charity Event – A group of music students will perform Busk-Walk on Millennium Promenade on the new arranged date of Saturday 30th May. Midday to Afternoon.

The Millennium Walk

Three kilometres of promenade now links Portsmouth’s historic waterfront. The route starts from Spur Redoubt near Clarence Pier, Southsea and finishes on The Hard, taking in Old Portsmouth, the Camber and Gunwharf Quays.

The walkway has been built of the highest quality natural stone and opened up waterfront  land that had been closed to the public for centuries.

The route is indicated by a chain motif set into the surface, symbolising partnership between the communities of Portsmouth and Gosport and between past and present. Historically it also refers to the chain, which used to be tightened across the harbour entrance at times of potential attack.

Column-mounted lanterns light the promenade, designed to reflect the historic character of blue lights at night that are strung around the harbour.

Please come along and join in the fun, and help this group of music students save lives.

Save The Blind Tiger

blind_tiger
Help save The Blind Tiger.  

We had an amazing fundraiser last May ‘Psychedelia For No More Durty Water’  at The Blind Tiger. This will be a great loss to a Brighton.

Brighton and Hove is a vibrant city with a rich, diverse history of culture and live music. However, over the past eight years we have lost a number of iconic live music venues in the city, some due to issues that could well have been sorted out with the full cooperation of all parties.
Due to noise complaints by ONE person who moved into a flat above a bar with a long history of live music, we are losing another live music venue. We are all entitled to peace and quiet, but moving into a flat above a live music venue and complaining about the noise is like moving to Spain and complaining it’s too hot.

Please sign the petition here, to repeal the noise abatement notice

Cleaning Water In Brighton Under The Influence Of Psychedlia

no more durty water 4

A fundraiser for No More Durty Water featuring 4 bands and 4 visual artists to provide clean drinking water in the district of Malda, West Bengal, India, of which is severely arsenic polluted. we want to buy a water filtration unit, which filters out the arsenic and iron and supplies clean drinking water for 500 people. These units currently come to approximately £ 1.810 and will be installed by local charity Calcutta Rescue (registered charity no. 290197).

An amazing line up not to be missed! Brighton based trio Oh! Captain will treat you to an intense trip along the lines of At the Drive-In and Mars Volta (Drive-In at Mars), long time lovers of walls of sound Carmen Rosa will hypnotise you with their driving guitar work and funky bass lines, and fresh back from tour, Kassassin Street has blown life into krautrock again through a big reed of psychedelia. And then, not only will these three bands blow you off your rocker, but the mighty Black Market Karma are rolling in their huge sound from London to send you into space!

The visual aspect is going to be immense. The one and only Cassettelord will be conducting live art on the night, and there is an original cassette-piece to be won (drawn from the number on your tickets, so don’t lose it!). El Wenche Winlove is showing a supreme collection of her animation films on a big screen in the breaks between bands, drive-in cinema style, and Partial Facsimile has promised a mixed media tactile installation. If this wasn’t enough to stimulate you watchers, Atomsphere are planning a cymascopic approach to band visuals!

We have also been informed that Captain O’Dave of Carmen Rosa has some artwork for us to hang, but it will remain a secret until the night.

C’mon BRIGHTON –
4 bands 4 visual artists £4 entry (that’s 50p a pop!) – A fun night for us can ensure clean water for hundreds of people!

Southsea to Host No More Durty Water Fundraiser.

durtydozen_fly

Our friends from Durty Sound System are putting together another FUNDRAISER for us.

With the money raised from this event, and another in Brighton, will allow us to work with Calcutta Rescue in Kolkata
Calcutta Rescue has moved into the field of arsenic mitigation in response to the current crisis whereby, as a result of a drop in the water table, the drinking water supply for millions of people in West Bengal has become contaminated with arsenic, a naturally-occurring and very toxic substance.
We are hoping to buy a water filtration unit, which filters out the arsenic and supplies clean drinking water.

‘THE DURTY DOZEN’

A themed party based on the Robert Aldrich 1967 classic war film The Dirty Dozen.

The Durty Dozen, the most twisted, anti-establishment bunch of music junkies your ever run into!

We have trained them, excited them and armed them with fantastic records to execute their mission.

A Three room party at The Fat Fox to raise money for No More Durty Water

The Dirty Dozen [Film]

The Dirty Dozen was also one of the first movies to show the darker side of war – that the best soldiers are often society’s outcasts, the sociopaths and misanthropes who kill and rape. War is not civilized, and there’s no place for order or manners amidst the carnage of a battlefield.

About a suicide mission, the army has decided to use 12 criminals who are either awaiting the execution of a death sentence or who have been condemned to spend at least 20 years in prison. If the “volunteers” survive and distinguish themselves, their sentences will be commuted.

Protected Spring #3

What a way to end the year. Our 3rd protected spring is in operation. Built  in association with Bridge Of Hope Children’s Ministry in West Uganda.

This was built using money from Durty Sound System Block Party – No More Durty Water Campaign fundraiser. Which was held on Saturday 24th November at The Wine Vaults in Southsea, Uk.

The fundraiser raised a fantastic £1,489.95. We would like to thank everyone who attended, played and worked at this fabulous event. And a massive thank you to the Wine Vaults for having us and letting the Durty Sound System transform the venue.

It is so amazing that this community has this facility already. No waiting around for its official opening in February.

Just shows what WE can do to improve lives with clean water, and how quick you can make a difference to a community. We are already looking into our next water project and can’t wait to get stuck in. Thank you for your time and donations.
