- upcoming compilation of Melbourne's finest
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,
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.
