Trident Ploughshares (TP) is a group of dedicated peace and justice activists who believe in non-violent direct action and are willing to risk arrest and imprisonment to protest against Trident, a multiple warhead nuclear missile system carried by the submarine fleet of the same name, and advocate for the decommissioning of weapons of mass destruction. Legal fees are expensive, publicity costs money, a well run protest is not cheap. TP needs cash and it needs public awareness of the issue.
Deep Peace is a collection of great songs from great bands sympathetic to the cause. We aim to raise awareness and funds for the work of Trident Ploughshares, in the hope of making the world a safer, better, more creative and exciting place. This is not a collection of protest songs, we haven't asked the musicians to change what they do. Instead, Calamateur has curated a deliriously brilliant compilation album. Each band donated one of their best songs and Calamateur tweaked, mastered and shuffled everything into a cohesive whole. This is a labour of love indeed. It sounds amazing. It will rock your world.

At the start of the millennium Richard Vernon and Andrew Howie started a micro label they called Autoclave Records. Thanks
to a love of great music and a stunning lack of commercial timing, Autoclave released some great records that very few people bought.
Following a bit of a hiatus, Autoclave is back, and we've brought our back catalogue with us....more
welcome to the dark-side - Calamateur has often written about doubt, questioning, and dark stuff with an ultimately hopeful twist, but this is his deepest exploration of that side of his musical personae... Excellent. Steve Lawson
