F*#%KN HELL! – Having trouble finding our CDs?

PLEASE tell us the names and locations of shops where you can’t find our stuff, as we can then pass on the info to those in charge of our distribution and tell them to get things movin’. But we’ll never know if you don’t tell us… not just the latest releases either – any old feeder cd you happen to be after.

We’re on RECOVERY again

November 1, 1998

HEY! We’re on RECOVERY again this weekend coming – doing Hi Cs and Triple Hook so tune in.

Also we’re in Melbourne thursday and friday nights, at the PUNTERS club, and Adelaide Sat and Sun, at the Holdfast and Royal hotels respectively. COME ON DOWN!!!

In a band? 

Well you know how you get free money from APRA for all radio plays you get and all the gigs you do? There’s another agency called the Phonographic Performance Company of Australia, who collect ANOTHER fee that’s due to the PERFORMERS on each of your releases – ie the guys in the band who actually play the instruments you hear on the record, and over the air. They’ve got dough for you too!

Get onto them about it, you can register as a performer and collect your cash:
