Echo and the Bunnymen taking the shilling

Well, the New Israeli Shekel in this case.

Apparently Echo and the Bunnymen played for Love Music Hate Racism back in 2007.  What a difference four years makes.  They are now lined up to gig in Tel Aviv in a couple of weeks, 26th April 2011 to be precise.  I'm rushing but here's a blog that sets out the basics:
Echo and the Bunnymen are scheduled to perform on April 26, 2011 at the Reading 3 club in Tel Aviv. We are asking Echo and the Bunnymen to support the Palestian call for Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions of Israel until it abides by international law, stops its brutal occupation of the Palestinian people and recognises their right to return. We'd like them to follow the principled lead of other artists such as Roger Waters, Pete Seeger, Massive Attack, The Klaxons and Gorillaz Sound System, Carlos Santana, Elvis Costello, Devendra Banhart, Faithless, Gil Scott-Heron, The Pixies, Snoop Dogg
And here's what you can do:
