That being said, Bazza our bass guitarist and all round great guy, did win BEST BASS GUITARIST IN THE COMP. So a big well done to Bazza!!!!
Our instrumental 'Couldn't be Bothered Singin' Song' also made it into the top thirty in the ASA 'Australian Songwriters Association" actually coming in at no 12. Which is another pat on the back considering the quality and amount of entries in this very prestigous competition .
