Title: Happy
Post by: zdsc on Tue 03 Jul 2018 11:29:06
I just wanted to say how happy I am to discover that this forum is still going.  I was a blog follower about a decade ago, and when it stopped and moved here, I joined and was semi-active for a while.  I'm from the UK, but I've been a fan of Australian music for years and I've struggled so much to get information about Australian bands here in the UK, so the blog/forum were absolutely brilliant.

...but then life really got in the way - and the killer blow was that I stopped listening to music altogether after a traumatic brain injury (it was too "stimulating" for my struggling brain). 

Anyway, I've been listening to music again for a few years now...and I was sitting at my PC the other night, and I suddenly remembered the existence of this site.  (It sounds like nothing, but when you've been hit with memory problems following an accident, it was a big, "OH YES!" moment). I just wanted to say how happy I was to log on the other week and find that you're all still here.  I was amazed to find that you're still going, and I just wanted to express my appreciation.   :Thumbup:)

What an amazing post to read!!
I was touched reading it and hope that zdsc continues his/her recovery and gets back as much normal function as is humanly possible.
Yes, this is a brilliant site for getting information about our Aussie artists and the people here are only too willing to give you the best, most accurate information possible.
