BRIGHOUSE band Embrace are backing a music project to help Oxfam.

Oxjam is the UK's largest music festival - but unlike most it is not held on one date at one place.

Artists taking part - including Huddersfield band The Scaramanga Six - organise their own charity gigs at venues across the nation during October.

Money raised at the gigs is given to Oxfam's work in fighting poverty.

The gigs are a chance for local unsigned bands and artists to raise their profile.

The events are also being supported by bands such as the Kaiser Chiefs, The Automatic and Embrace.

Embrace singer Danny McNamara said: "We've all got the chance to use music to try and achieve something really great.

"If everyone does their bit and goes along to the Oxjam events in their area, together we might achieve something really amazing."

The Scaramanga Six are playing a gig called Wrathstonbury with Being 747 and Sarandon at The Brudenell Social Club in Queen's Road, Woodhouse, Leeds, from 12.30pm tomorrow. Tickets cost £7.

Oxjam is being supported by Pulse Rated, an integrated radio station and download store dedicated to breaking new, unsigned music.

It will produce a regular Oxjam radio show, podcasts, a gig guide and updates at

There will be a compilation CD out on October 16, featuring 18 Pulse Rated artists, including The Scaramanga Six and The Attic Project.

It will also be available on download from iTunes.

For every copy sold at least £1.50 will go to Oxfam.
