ABC's "Exhumed" is a band competition with a difference. It’s not for has-beens, it’s not for wannabes, it’s for the never-weres: the people who play music for the sheer love of it. The NSW North Coast had an awesome response with one of the highest numbers of entries in regional Australia. Go behind the scenes in this video to see the finalists and hear what the judges, ABC North Coast's Justine Frazier and Joanne Shoebridge, had to say.

You can listen to all the Exhumed finalists at abc.net.au/tv/exhumed/bands/. Of these 44 bands, only 6 will be selected by James Valentine and Exhumed HQ to perform at the Grand Final on December 12 in Sydney. Vote for your favourite band to win the People’s Choice award and stay tuned for Exhumed on ABC TV in November!

Sound recordist and mixer for the finals performance: Mic Deacon
Produced by Catherine Marciniak, ABC Open North Coast Producer (2010 - 2013)
