John Cobbett, the current guitarist for Hammers of Misfortune and Ludicra (as well as previously in The Lord Weird Slough Feg (the greatest USPM band of all time)) was on tour when his appendix burst. He is currently in medical care (obviously). But the problem is that he does not have decent health insurance, and needs financial support. So basically his band members want you to donate your Gil (also known as cash monies) to help pay his medical bills. Here’s how to do it.
Option 1: If you would like to make a donation to LUDICRA/John Cobbett directly through Profound Lore, simply send a manual payment via paypal here: profoundlorerecords AT gmail DOT com and in the subject line please write “Ludicra Donation” just so we can distinguish it.
Option 2: LUDICRA’s friends WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM have also reached out to help. They have posted all their donation info etc. via their myspace blog HERE.
Option 3: Raymond Ahner, a friend of LUDICRA has created a cool poster for the band’s show in Portland and is selling them. All proceed from sales of this poster will go towards LUDICRA. Go HERE to see where you can buy the poster.
So do that if you can, because his stuff is awesome and I hear he’s a good guy. Poster pictured below.
Help the guy out so he can get back out there with his bands and make stupid good music for us to enjoy. Here are the Ludicra De-Cancellation Tour dates.
