ALWAYS conquering new ground, Newcastle band AMY VEE AND THE VIRTUES was pleasantly surprised to win NEWCASTLE MUSIC WEEK'S Expose Yourself band competition.

After months of heats and eliminations, the grand final was held at the CIVIC THEATRE NEWCASTLE on Sep tember 17, judged by industry representatives from EMI, SHOCK, MGM, HARBOUR AGENCY and MUSICOZ. Despite tough compe tition, the band came out in front, winning a prize package including recording time with LA producer ROGER SOM MERS. Sommers has worked with ALANIS MORIS SETTE, KD LANG and METALLICA. The prize will allow the band to record and mas ter a new single at STU DIOS 301 which will be manufactured and dis tributed through MGM. Vee said it was perfect timing for the band as it had planned an album release early next year.

Other prizes included publicity consultation, website design and a support gig which will see Amy Vee and The Virtues support THE SCREAMING JETS at NEWCASTLE PANTHERS on Saturday night.

The band, comprising Vee, GARY ARNOLD, MAT MCCOLL and RUS SELL CRAWFORD, released its debut five- track EP, Quintessence , earlier this year.
