"Rise William Rise" is a compilation for the benefit of William (Wm. to his close friends) Berger, longtime WFMU DJ (host of My Castle of Quiet) and proprietor of Prison Tatt Records. Wm. suffered some serious health issues in late 2016. Wm. has been a huge supporter of underground music for decades, indeed his show has been a nexus of music, from the New York area to the rest of the world.
The idea for this comp came about spontaneously a few days after we heard the news about Wm.'s health, and within a few weeks it was complete.
The 22 artists who contributed to this album are virtually all friends and fans of Wm., and many of them have played live on his program or released on Prison Tatt. A number of them also run crucial small labels themselves.
Please help out by downloading our humble offerings.
