Featuring Bristol-based artists such Fever 103°, Dali De Saint Paul and The Naturals, the album jumps from the sounds of B-movie horror drill to euphoric steppas.

Since lockdown began, Caring in Bristol have launched its largest-ever advertising campaign to raise awareness of homelessness, as well as providing meals for vulnerable people through the Cheers Drive scheme.

Every person will receive one Cheers Drive delivery per day, which will include one hot meal, as well as a packed lunch and breakfast, and the initiative is led by Josh Eggleton, from the Pony & Trap, Salt & Malt, and featured on Channel 4’s The Restaurant That Makes Mistakes.

Increased support for the homeless community means more funds are needed. All donations made to Avon Garde will go directly to Caring in Bristol.

With artists such as Walya and DJ Ductape from Noods Radio, to Bad Tracking from Bokeh Versions featuring on the electric and exciting compilation, this is an excellent album raising money for a worthy cause.
