My friend Bryce has a band called Gadunk Gadunk!! and they’re participating in the Triple J Unearthed competition, which rewards the best local and regional Australian bands with national exposure (e.g. Grinspoon, Daisycutters, Killing Heidi, Missy Higgins). GG!! are a roots/funk/rock outfit based in Melbourne. Visit their Unearthed page and grab some free MP3s, and if you like them, write ’em up.
