Call * Response is a book inspired by youth and Winnipeg’s live music scene as told by thirty-six local photographers, visual artists, writers, lyricists and fans. The book includes unpublished photos of Dead Kennedys, Propagandhi, SNFU, the poster art of Steve Hallick, writing from Sam Smith, Greg MacPherson’s top-ten shows, memorabilia, and much, much more. Call * Response is a big hardcover, LP size book with sixty-four pages of punk rock in colour and b&w. At least $10 from the sale of each book goes to support Kids Help Phone.
The goal of this project is to help raise money and awareness for Kids Help Phone – Canada’s only phone and on-line counseling service for youth. It’s free, anonymous and confidential. Professional counselors are available 365 days a year. As a national community-based charity, Kids Help Phone relies on individual and corporate donations to fund these vital services. www.kidshelpphone.ca or call 1-800-668-6868
