Hillsborough Charity Tribute Single Released

A CHARITY single ‘You would not tell me’ will be officially released today (27 October 2016).

Endorsed by the Hillsborough Family Support Group, it is a tribute to the families affected by the Hillsborough disaster and the continuing cover up of the truth.

The single is a free download – with an option to make a donation to the Alder Hey Children’s Charity in memory of the 96 lives lost and in tribute to the courage and fortitude of their families over so many years.

The song is written, performed and produced by The Ultimate Coffeehouse Collective, a local band based in Liverpool and North Wales.

The band members are John Every, Helena Johnson and Mark Pierce.  All singer/songwriters in their own right, they came together earlier this year through working together at the Revelator recording studios in North Wales.

John Every who wrote the tribute song, said: “We all confront trauma and unfairness in life.  But rarely has a group of innocent people been subjected to such a conspiracy of denial and unjust vilification over so many years.

“The words of the song were originally prompted by the Report of the Hillsborough Independent Panel.  The Panel’s report in 2012 found that police orchestrated a cover-up, falsified documents and blamed innocent supporters.  It said the lives of 41 fans could have been saved and cleared supporters of any wrongdoing or blame for the disaster, prompting a public apology from the Prime Minster.

“In 2016, through the new inquest hearings, supporters were completely vindicated of any blame – after 267 days of evidence from over 800 witnesses in the longest case heard by a jury in British legal history.

“The time now seems right to release the single as a fitting tribute to the families … after more than 27 years.

It is a token of our esteem for them and hopefully expresses the support of all associated with their cause.”

The single can be downloaded free via: with the option to donate at:
