Mogwai and Teeth Of The Sea are among the acts who feature on a compilation CD to raise funds for testicular cancer charity CheckEmLads.
The 26-track record, called A Charity Album In Aid Of CheckEmLads, is the brainchild of testicular cancer survivor Stephen Clarke.
Stephen, 37 and from London, says: “I spent more than 150 nights in a hospital bed, I had seven courses of chemotherapy and lost almost half my body weight. I had to learn to walk again. I nearly lost my life. The CheckEmLads charity was with me every step of the way.
“Now, I want to give something back. Some of the bands and artists who helped me through the worst times feature on this exclusive compilation.”

All 26 tracks have been gifted exclusively for the album, which is available as a digital download only. It goes on sale on July 31 – a year to the day that Stephen was given the all-clear.
A Charity Album In Aid Of CheckEmLads can be pre-ordered now and will be available throughout the month of August for £5, after which the exclusive tracks will no longer be available anywhere.
Pre-orders come with immediate downloads of Cleft’s Frankenstein, recorded live at Bush Hall in 2015, and Alpha Male Tea Party’s You Eat Houmous, Of Course You Play Acoustic.
Other acts that feature on the album include Part Chimp, Rumour Cubes, The Wharves and Songhoy Blues.
