Fist Full of Trojans
Since our inception in 2012 we’ve enjoyed terrific support from musicians in Australia. Artists like The Funaddicts, Pat Powell, The Ozska’s and The Rogue Scholars have all recorded tracks for our compilation series.
In 2016 Pat Powell made the long trip over to the UK to appear at The Big One 5.
It’s only natural that we now reach out to Oz to pick up the Specialized Cause.
SpecialOz’d is made up of a team of antipodean musicians who will host a series of events starting in Sydney in Spetember 2017.
SpecialOz’d will support CanTeen.
CanTeen is Australian organisation for young people living with cancer offering support, information, and resources. CanTeen was set up by a group of young cancer patients in 1985 and still have young people affected by cancer guiding the organisation at every level.
SpecialOzd have invited Roddy Radiation (The Specials/ Skabilly Rebels) and Grammy award winner King Hammond (Bad Manners/Selecter) to perform at their inaugural event. Both men have agreed to give up their time and their fees to play at the event (well done lads). We just need to fund their trip.
As a charitable project, we need to keep our outlays as low as possible, and as such the costs of their flights are not within our means. We are calling out to you, our valued Specialized supporters, music lovers, and generous givers to donate to the cause and help us to raise the costs of their flights.
Please visit the crowdfunding page if you can help by making a small donation
SpecialOz’d is very proud to announce Pat Powell as the SpecialOz’d Ambassador.
With a career that spans over four decades and right across the globe, Pat Powell is one of Australia’s most accomplished vocal talents. We are honoured and thrilled to have him on board.
Pat has contributed to past specialized compilation CDs and has performed at the Specialized Big One event in the UK. He is passionate about what we are trying to achieve and we can’t think of a better person to join us on this venture – Thanks Pat xxx
