Just under a month ago, Minotaurs-man Mick Ross helped to put on a spectacular all-day event at The Cluny in aid of the Epilepsy Society, featuring sets from The Great Curve, Tessera Skies, Grandfather Birds and many more. Now Mick, who himself suffers from the neurological condition, is further helping to raise funds for the Society by making his and Simon Walker’s new EP with Soundtracks For A B-Movie a Pay What You Like affair. Having set up a Just Giving page, where people can donate a sum as large or small as they want, it’s hoped that the Regression EP will encourage people to give generously to the cause.

Mick explained the concept behind the EP: “I’d had an idea of writing an EP solely based on the process and feeling of the various stages of a grand mal seizure and everything that goes with it. So I set up a Just Giving page to get see whether anyone would be interested in donating for the music – almost a pay as you play, but we still had to record the EP!”

“We eventually picked things up again and decided that if we were ever going to get anything finished then we’d need to treat it like a job. So we pencilled in three days where we would try and write and record whatever we came up with, with the idea being that we would release as much of it as we could!” Mick says. “Thankfully, at the end of the process we had enough material that we were both happy with and felt was cohesive enough to release as an EP. We’re both pleased with the outcome and it seems to be an approach that worked well for us both.”

Mick suggests that a fiver is about right for the four-track EP, which is already a bargain for Soundtracks’ latest, but please give generously to help out a great cause!

You can donate to Soundtracks For A B-Movie’s campaign and download Regression from their Just Giving page. All proceeds go to the Epilepsy Society.
