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. The local winners are "Victims of Geography". You can listen to the competition they are up against 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!
More about Guriguru ...
Guriguru describes themselves as an Indigenous roots/funk band including Nick on the guitar, Greg on bass and Garry on the didgeridoo and drums. The band tells Indigenous stories through song that have been passed down from Garry's father and Elders. Guriguru says they're all about sharing the Indigenous culture so "stories of blackfellas". Guriguru works up soundscapes for the stories based on drones and various rhythms. The band has made a $1000.00 if they're lucky because "you can't play this stuff in most pubs". You might catch Guriguru playing at the occasional local NAIDOC gig or at a gallery opening.
Sound recordist and mixer for the performance. Mic Deacon
Produced by Catherine Marciniak, ABC Open North Coast Producer (2010 - 2013)
