Our next fundraising event on Saturday August 5th – The Three Musketeers at The Edge Of The Wedge

Three Musketeers at The Edge Of The Wedge 5 August

The Three Musketeers aka DJ’s Jonty, Marc Flood and Pink Panther bring the noise to The Edge Of The Wedge on Saturday 5th August from 8pm. Admission is free with donations on the door to No More Durty Water.

Get your glad rags and dancing shoes on as the Three Musketeers ride the decks in aid of No More Durty Water. Fresh from whipping up a storm at the Summer Love festival, Jonty makes a welcome return to the home of The Fishtank where he made his name. Known for consistently rocking the floor with his mix of chunky uplifting house and big rollin’ beats, don’t miss Jonty’s return to Albert Road.

Marc Flood is another Southsea legend and festival floor-filler, having smashed it at Riba Rocks, Bugged Out and his own Tomaito Tomato nights with deeper underground vibes. Marc drops warped and dirty basslines over nasty tech-house and twisted vocals to devastating effect, throwing in some exclusive cuts from his own productions for good measure.

Expect the unexpected as Pink Panther from Serbia makes his debut on the south coast. Bringing an eclectic blend of juicy drum & bass and bouncy progressive grooves, Pink Panther will lead you directly to the dancefloor.

All for one and one for all, these Three Musketeers invite you to join them for a hot summer night of bumping tunes on a sweet sound system at The Edge Of The Wedge 147b Albert Road, Southsea PO4 0JW.

Arsenic filter in Goria Nagar installed!

Arsenic filter in Goria Nagar, India

From the generous donations given at the Psychedelia for No More Durty Water event at The Blind Tiger Club in May 2013, the Calcutta Rescue team has now installed an arsenic filter in the village of Goria Nagar in the Malda district, India. The community can now enjoy clean drinking water as a result of music and art provided by Black Market Karma, Kassassin Street, Carmen Rosa, Oh Captain!, Cassettelord, Atomsphere, El Winlove, David Neal and Partial Facsimile. Thank you all!

We shall continue raising money and awareness through the means of music and art, starting with Southsea Old Guard First XI at the Little Johnny Russels in Southsea THIS SATURDAY 14th November. This event is to commemorate comrade DJ Monkey P, the initiator of No More Durty Water, who sadly passed away earlier this year. Come down and enjoy 11 wicked DJs spin records from 1 PM till late and donate money you can spare to help more people gain access to clean drinking water. After all it is a BASIC HUMAN RIGHT!

The Bucket Board

Here is a fantastic idea, put together for Earth Hour, skateboards made from waste out of a tip by the brilliant Mac Premo.

Do the Green Thing has teamed up with World Wildlife Fund-UK to curate the ‘Everyday Things’ collection: fifteen artists from around the world were asked to repurpose daily objects and show how creativity can lead the way in encouraging people to live a greener lifestyle. When artist Mac Premo was asked to contribute to the collection, he partnered with Sanford Shapes to create skateboard decks made entirely out of material lifted from a dumpster. Mac then made this film which shows the process and inspiration behind the Bucket Board.

Think the advert is rather cool too.

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.
