Stranded Launch Wrap-Up

We launched our Brisbane Music compilation 'Stranded' at The Zoo on Friday night. The evening was a great success, all of the bands played fantastic sets (I believe I actually used the phrase 'everyone brough their A-game' on the night, which I'm pretty sure I nabbed from a Dark Knight review). Brendan aka Ex-King-John recorded the majority of the night (with the exception of Monster Monster and the very start of The Rational Academy's set), so head over to his blog to download the mp3s and read his thoughts on the evening.

For those who couldn't attend but still want a copy of the compilation, there's a 'Buy Now' link on the right-hand side of the blog. That'll take you to a page where you can either pay by via your Paypal account (if you have one) or Credit Card (if you don't). We will then send your CD out in the mail. The CD is $20 from now on (though if you're in one of the contributing bands then send us an email and we'll get one to you at the launch price). It should also be in stores such as Rockinghorse pretty soon.

Again, thanks to everyone who helped with the CD, whether they be the bands who contributed, the people who helped with art and photography, 4zzz and the street press for the promo, The Zoo for giving us the night, and of course everyone who come to the launch and bought a copy. Also, special thanks to Ash, Dan, Nathan, Ben and Amy (I think that's everyone?) for helping us with madly putting the discs together backstage on the night.

Got the compilation in the mail yesterday afternoon. Very awesome! Thanks so very much for putting this together.

I work at a library down in the Redlands and i'm going to see if they can order a copy or two to add to the library collection. It should help get a few more people into these awesome bands, and your awesome blog.

Thanks Rob and 5FtNothing. Glad you like it.

Anonymous: probably not... but then again, you never know.
