Melbourne Water - upcoming compilation of Melbourne's finest



We're quite lucky in Melbourne - plenty of venues, noise regulations getting sorted out, less terrible weather than you'd imagine and some of the most uncompromising musicians and bands in the country choosing to base themselves here. Some have been around for many years and still have creative fires burning bright, others are only starting out and burn like magnesium. This compilation, curated by David Nichols and Greg Wadley has both types and more spanning 24 tracks. Release date is set for August 2nd and you'll hear more about it on this page, including audio samples, over the next few weeks.

The art work is by Mia Schoen of New Estate and it's sensational. Shane Moritz has written the amazing and bizarre liner notes.

I've done a small slideshow of some of the line drawings that feature in the booklet for you to get some idea of what's coming. You'll need Flash to see it.
