Buckshot Facelift are streaming a new track titled “Bobby Boy”, which honors their friend Robert McAllister (Capital, Iron Chic). Vocalist Will Smith comments:
“The song ‘Bobby Boy’ was written for Rob McAllister, who played guitar in the punk bands Capital and Iron Chic. He was a good friend to members of Buckshot and passed away a little over a year ago. We are playing on Saturday, May 27th, for his benefit show (Wild Fest Day 2) in Amityville, New York. The song was written and recorded in the same sessions as Ulcer Island with producer Keith Moore. We are posting it as a name-your-price download and all money collected goes directly to Rob’s widow and two kids.”
The song is available through the group’s Bandcamp, with all proceeds going towards McAllister‘s family. As previously mentioned, the band will be performing today at Wild Fest! 2. Additional donations can be made via a YouCaring.com campaign.
