Bands Unearthed for Triple J Gig



Who: Cactapii

BIG, energetic guitar riffs, bass-heavy rhythms, machine-gun vocals and funky chops were only a few of the initial impressions of the UNEARTHED contribution from New Lambton band CACTAPII. Entries to the TRIPLE J demo tape competition closed last Friday, but drummer MATT HARVEY's HSC music composition FUNKY # 1 was among the hundreds received by organisers.

TRIPLE J coordinators said they wanted songs that had recording potential.

Three of the bands to be chosen from the Newcastle area by the end of September will be recorded and played on the national youth broadcaster.

Harvey said he hoped that he and guitarist PETER HARVEY and bass player MICHAEL SULLIVAN would be able to start chasing live work after their exams. TE
