Agit-prop electroclash Canuck Peaches has written a song for imprisoned Russians Pussy Riot with an all-star clip.

Stereogum reports that the sneering, hip-thrusting electroclash provocateur has written an appropriately punk rock tune ‘Free Pussy Riot’ in order to protest the detainment of members of political art-punk group Pussy Riot by Russian authorities.

The song ain’t much chop, but Stereogum claim that the clip shows all-star support (even though most people appear in Pussy Riot’s trademark dayglo balaclavas). We can spot The Hives, Lykke Li, Nick Zinner of Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Wayne Kramer of MC5 and JD Samson of La Tigre.

There are also appearances, supposedly, by Swedes The Knife, Peter Bjorn And John and Miike Snow, Brit singer Kate Nash, Brooklyn synth act Light Asylum and US singer songwriter Marshall Crenshaw.

Check out the clip below. Sign the Change.org petition here. Cross your fingers, there’s a hearing tomorrow.
