After an intense campaign on social networks, their protest song of Asian Dub Foundation “Comin Over Here”, featuring comedian Stewart Lee, reached No. 1 on the UK single download charts on the very first day of Brexit!
The money raised from “Comin’ Over Here” will be donated to the Kent Refugee Action Network (KRAN), a charity that supports young refugees striving to live independent and successful lives in the community.
Steve “Chandra” Savale, leader of Asian Dub Foundation, exclaimed: “This is an amazing result for a leftfield track that satirises casual anti- immigrant rhetoric. It’s struck a real chord with people because it’s both a tough tune and funny which is a rare combination.
