MusiciansTogether For Rainbow Warrior Tributute

23 May 2005

New Zealand Musicians Band Together For Rainbow Warrior Tribute.

July 10, 2005 marks the twentieth anniversary of the bombing of The Rainbow Warrior in Auckland and in recognition a remarkable recording of The Muttonbirds' 'Anchor Me' will be released on July the 4th, with proceeds to Greenpeace.

The unprecedented recording features vocals from Goldenhorse's Kirsten Morelle, Che Fu, Anika Moa, Pluto's Milan Borich, Adeaze, Hinewehi Mohi and Nesian Mystik's David Atai & Donald McNulty.

'Anchor Me' composer Don McGlashan said "when Greenpeace asked to use 'Anchor Me' to mark twenty years since the Rainbow Warrior's sinking, I was glad to help. Our country's response to the bombing was brave and steadfast – and it succeeded on many levels. We still lead the world's resistance to nuclear weapons, and that's something to be very proud of."

All artists and musicians, in fact everyone involved, donated their time for free. "We've been overwhelmed by the amount of support we've received," said Greenpeace Campaigner Steve Abel.

"An impressive team of people have come together to donate their time, resources and expertise not only to commemorate the tragic events of July 10, but also to celebrate New Zealand being nuclear free and to support the vision of a peaceful and environmentally sound planet which the Rainbow Warrior continues to work for and symbolise," says Abel.

A Greenpeace concert will also take place July 10 in Auckland, details of which will be announced shortly.

'Anchor Me', the Rainbow Warrior commemoration will be serviced to radio nationwide on June 6. A video for the song is in production and will be available from June 20.

Special thanks to: Don McGlashan, York St, The Lab, Murray Grindlay, Flying Fish, Publicis Mojo and FMR.
