“Good Mornin’ everybody! Ya know how I usually give the ol’ “Rich Rags Story Time”? Well here’s an important one.

When my son Zoli was diagnosed with autism I felt helpless. It was something I knew very little about, so I thought the worst. I tried to keep a brave face. And that exhausted me. So worried about him. As I worried and tried to learn about it, Zoli was growing to be an emotional, quite happy child. Who barely spoke. That inability to communicate his thoughts would send the lil’ guy into some serious spins of REAL frustration.

As Zoli began to communicate more and more, we would see that, though he may sometimes have a difficult time with how to describe his emotions, he definitely feels them. When he tells me he loves me and holds my gaze, my heart explodes. It’s a big emotion. Harder to say than the opposite. For most of us I think. I’m so proud that he’s come to grasps with it. That worry melts away a bit…

I wrote this song for and with my son. And this charity is very close to our hearts, as it is something that we are involved with and frequent. As does many, many other families. That little meatball LOVES it! Hahahahahahaha!

The Role Models have been Recording a new Single to benefit the British National Autistic Society.

To quote the lovely front man Rags:

“A NEW SINGLE! All proceeds will go towards funding a safe play day for autistic children in North London that my wife and I help run. A day the local council couldn’t give a shit about but is really important to so many families. My son Zoli included! (he even helped write the lyrics!!!) All through the local branch of the NATIONAL AUTISTIC SOCIETY! Alot of people donated time. To record it (Andy Brook, Rich Jones, Daniel Husayn), build a site for it (Dave Kerr), even include cool stuff to sell (Richard Crobar owner of the best rock bar in the world The Crobar!). Like I said verrrrrrrryyyyy sooooooon!”

Andy Brook of Strummers Recording Studio has donated time for the recording of the track and  North London Bomb Factory has donated time for Mastering.
