Promoting New Artists / 2019 Australian Blues "Chain" Awards
« Last post by terryh on Sun 24 Feb 2019 01:37:51 »
Went to the Australian Blues Festival at  Goulburn earlier in the month. A great laid back festival where all the music is free on the second weekend of February every year. Lloyd Seigal & Simon Kiney-Lewis took out the 2019 Chain awards but some great new artists & a couple of lesser known in Australia worth keeping a look out for if you're interested in blues based rock music.
Dean Haitani & 8 Ball Aitken are probably both better known in the USA than they are here at home but both were a knockout.
Andrea Marr & John McNamara, performing as McNamarr Duo had just returned from the international blues knockout in Memphis where they represented Australia and although they were knocked out in the semi finals they signed a recording contract with a major label.
Of the other artists I saw The Vibrolators with Miss Peta Lee and Pat Eyre Duo stand out.
A great weekend & one to put in the diary for next year with music in the park all weekend and long into the night & early morning at the various clubs &  hotels around town.
The only complaint I heard all weekend was from Dean Haitani that he drew the 10am start in the park on Sunday but like a true professional he played on to the delight of the audience. Might see you there next year as all else being well I'll be back.

I had a quick look and discovered that "Spirit Of Australia" is by UK surf band Surfin' Lungs. (Official website / Wikipedia)

Here 'tis:

Surfin' Lungs - "Spirit Of Australia" (1990) (FLAC)

Surfin' Lungs - "Spirit Of Australia" (1990) (MP3)

Can anyone help me on info concerning a song titled: [Spirit Of Australia] (not by Slim Dusty)?
Only info I've got that it's an album track #2 and it's 2:51 long and sounds surf/garage or like Jan & Dean, or a copycat-Beach Boys.
@ the end I can hear a didge. And I know of a boat, the boat  :hahaha::thankx:)

I used to buy rechargeable batteries on Ebay from Hong Kong. Price was usually 1 cent for 12, but $20+ for postage. Still, it was cheaper than buying them at the local supermarket, and some of them even worked.  :o

:hellno: not particularly happy I was toying with the idea with buying a CD yesterday off Ebay and went through the whole purchasing deal until I got to COMMIT TO PAY and then noticed that the postage was a bit excessive so I opted out without hitting the COMMIT TO PAY button got up this morning and in my Email was my receipt for my purchase how the hell does that happen.  :Grrrrrr: :smash:) :shithappens: :copper:

It sounds like you had an enthusiastic seller. ("They're thinking about buying? I'll take that as a yes!")

I don't know how you could have missed the shipping costs, as they're usually prominent enough to be easily seen – unless the seller decided to get sneaky and hide them.

Ah well. You live and you learn / It's a teachable moment / C'est la vie / Que sera sera / [insert appropriate cliché here]...

I find with ebay that I usually know the postage upfront.  The main thing that has changed is that you are first advised of the addition of GST at the very last stage.   Now I just factor in the additional 10%.  When considering buying something from Amazon, it bugs me that I have to go through the shopping cart process to the very end to find out the amount they will charge for shipping.  That's when can still decide to opt out but it would be good to know the shipping at the start of the process.  Sometimes shipping can double the cost.
