We've all been shaken and affected by the events in Japan of late, and the situation is still grave for so many who have either lost their homes in the tsunami, or still evacuated from the Fukushima area.

Having visited the country on a couple of occasions and had nothing but the warmest welcome from the people, and nothing but the highest regard and affection for their wonderful world, I was thrilled to see that Feeder were releasing a charity single for Britain's Red Cross Japan appeal. Sometimes it's hard to know what you can do in this situation to help, but every little counts.

Feeder have obvious connections to Japan, since Taka Hirose joined the group many moons ago, and have played many tours over there. I called Taka in the middle of their current crop of dates in Europe, to find out more about the single Side By Side and how it will help to raise money for the Red Cross.

The response online to the single has been really great too, so let's hope it raises lots of money for a great cause.

Side By Side is released this week and is available on many download sites.
