That was a lie. We’re gigging at The Vineyard, St.Kilda at 11pm (Thursday 3rd April). Ha ha…
Well we’re setting some long term goals now. Our two immediate aims are getting a gig at SXSW and a return to Glastonbury Music Festival… oh and tonnes of airplay.
Well our last of the ‘way too many gigs in a row’ tour concludes next Thursday at the Brunswick Hotel 10th April then we get down to business again. Once again we’ve over booked gigs and haven’t had time to write new stuff. In the meantime however, we’ve had a bunch of fun, started our merchandise (sold about 40 T-Shirts in 4 weeks) and improved our website and social media. We’ve more in tune with how radio works now and are ready to take the mystical path of hope and glory.
Yesterday we returned to the studio to finish off our singles. They’re still not fully mixed yet but we’re working hard on it. I’ve been listening to a bunch of radio recently (particularly 6 Music, Amazing Radio and triple J) to know which presenters have free slots and what type of show they put on. I also started a blog gowatchsomebands.com to see what life’s like on the otherside.
Anyway… don’t want to give too much away but Tom Robinson’s twitter gave us some pretty darn handy tips. Don’t tell anyone shhh. Just kidding tell everyone – it’s good knowledge. Let’s build this Aussie music scene from the ground up! Who’s with us!
