Re: Checking in, Matt...
- Mixing our first record at the end of May, and recording the show
we're playing this Wednesday night...
if all turns out well Wednesday, I'll post a link to some of the songs.
That is if people don't mind.
One of our new tunes is very Augie influenced.

Apologies to whozza bunyip - by the time that post went through it
was up to about the 3rd or 4th time I'd written it and lost it. So I
was a little short on explanations.
And Lauren - re Surfers Paradise - I agree with everyone else that
the Troccadero sometimes has some good bands, but it's not a
particularly exciting venue otherwise. Apparently it has some good
boutique beers in one part of it.
You can check this out for yourself in Time Off (www.timeoff.com.au) -

RESIN DOGS, GOOD BUDDHA Coolangatta Hotel
So the only Gold Coast gigs listed are those at the Coolangatta
Hotel - and, if you don't have a car, it would probably be easier for
you to get to Brisbane than to get to Coolangatta.
Other than that, the Surfers Paradise Beer Garden (on Cavill Ave)
usually gets rave reviews from travellers. I don't particularly like
it, but maybe that's just me, since I can't think of a single Gold
Coast venue that I do really like! ;o)
Hope that helps. Sorry to everyone else on the list - I tried to
send this to Lauren privately but it wouldn't go through.
