Craigie Knowes is a new record label from Scotland, raising money for charity with music from the underground's finest. The First Annual Fundraiser: War Child will donate all profits to War Child International and have recruited an all-star cast to encourage us all to dig deep; not just for vinyl but into our pockets to help children affected by war. There's a lot of great tracks on here such as the analogue bubblebath that is "Grafta" by Lord Of The Isles, the driving, grinding techno workout that is Bicep's "Mallma" and not forgetting Move D's "Taps Aff For Glasgow" a slow burning epic that fans of Moufang will no doubt embrace. But it's Neville Watson's "War Child" that is our favourite; his typically soulful analogue machine workout summoning the ghost in the machines.
