Rum Lad suicide funds promo

Rum Lad releases Lost to raise funds for PAPYRUS charity

Whilst we wait for the debut Rum Lad album “Vandalism” to arrive on the 8th January 2021, the man himself has released a digital charity single entitled ‘Lost’.

He described the motivation behind the track to us, stating “My best friend in the world killed himself many moons ago when he was a young man finding his way, depression had its way with him and he wasn’t for this world anymore, there is always help out there especially from great charities like this so please dig in and let’s see if we can make a difference, thank you

All funds raised will go direct to PAPYRUS: Prevention Of Young Suicide.

PAPYRUS online

Suicide is the biggest killer of young people – male and female – under 35 in the UK. Every year many thousands more attempt or contemplate suicide, harm themselves or suffer alone, afraid to speak openly about how they are feeling.

PAPYRUS has been a long standing member of the government advisory groups in England and Wales on suicide prevention matters. We are active members of the National Suicide Prevention Strategy Advisory Group in England and of the National Advisory Group on Suicide Prevention and Self-harm reduction in Wales. Other national bodies that we contribute to are the National Suicide Prevention Alliance and the National Police Suicide Prevention Strategy Advisory Group.


‘Lost’ is available from the Rum Lad Store on a pay what you want basis, we would encourage all buyers to give generously.

Phil Newall is 47, from The Wirral - he earns his living not writing about music nor playing music...though sorely wishes he could. He was fortunate enough to see many of the first generation punk bands when they played the U18's matinee shows at Eric's, Liverpool. As an attendee at Eric's he was exposed to punk rock, dub reggae, art rock, and all manner of weirdness; as a customer at Probe Records he was variously served and scowled at by Pete Wylie and Pete Burns - he has written for Record Collector, Whisperin & Hollerin, and Spiral Scratch and wanted to write a book detailing the Liverpool punk scene; however with 'Head-On' Julian Cope beat him to it...and frankly did a much better job.
