Alongside their recently launched Crowdfunder, the vibrant DIY hub nestled just off of Stokes Croft has released a compilation to support the venue.

An expansive 29 track release, the collection features a wealth of live recordings and demos from both local acts and those from further afield who have experienced The Old England’s unique charm in some shape or form. With contributions from wych elm, Squid, Katy J Pearson, Grove, Pet Shimmers, sarahsson, Slugabed and so many more it’s a truly eclectic selection that reflects the diverse array of acts that have played at the venue. And it captures something of the Old E’s uninhibited, DIY essence.

As they describe it themselves, it’s “a collection of mostly unreleased, old or demo material from those who have lived, worked, played, and drank at The Old E. A celebration of past times and a way to pass the time”. Check out the full tracklisting and release below, and support the Old E if you can.

Buy the Old E’s compilation on Bandcamp.
