What is HELP?
HELP is a charity album launched in response to the Bosnian War. In 1995 the inter-ethnic conflict had taken the lives of 250,000 people and displaced a further two million. Those fleeing the bloodshed – ordinary men, women and children – were left with nothing, and little hope their lives would ever return to normal.
Tony Crean, International Marketing Manager at Go! Discs, along with music industry experts Anton Brookes, Terri Hall and Rob Partridge wante to do something to support families – and fast. They put their heads and contacts together to create the groundbreaking HELP album, in aid of War Child.
The support from the artists was incredible. Taking time out from their busy schedules, they recorded the entire record in just 24 hours. In a pre-digital time when the only conflict the UK music industry cared about was Blur versus Oasis, even they were willing to come together to support some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
“We’ll put aside our differences for the cause – and it’s the only time you’ll see the two of us agreeing on anything” – Noel Gallagher said in an interview.
The album was a huge success.
With such a legendary line-up, how could it not be? In a time before The Cloud, iPhones and email, HELP raised over £1.25 million to transform the lives of children caught up in the Bosnian War.
A quarter of a century after its original release, we’re relaunching the HELP album to raise vital funds for War Child’s lifesaving work responding to the Coronavirus pandemic.
