Rock The Vote compilation album news
August 19, 2011 Leave a comment
A major part of the Rock The Vote Wollongong campaign has been the curation of a compilation album, featuring tracks from local artists. Illawarra acts have been steadily recording and submitting songs for the RTV compilation, and as the Rock The Vote concert – and, in turn, the release date of the compilation – draws nearer, we’ve finally got news on the final tracklisting for the CD.
Leading local bands including Yardvark, The Conspiracy Plan and The Pennys have made the final cut, as well as a host of up-and-comers including Rocking Horse, Alotta Presha and The Maze. See below for the full tracklisting.
According to the Rock The Vote Facebook, over thirty tracks were submitted for the album – almost three hours of material – but due to time and content restraints, many of these will not make the final 72-minute CD. Therefore, the RTV organisers will release the remaining tracks online, via Soundcloud.
“The songs which did not fit on the CD will be uploaded on the Rock the Vote Wollongong Soundcloud,” stated Rock The Vote organiser, Murray Stace.
“We aim to upload a few tracks per week until the September 2nd concert.”
The first two tracks, from local artists Mind At Large and Pom Pom, are already up and available for streaming; you can check them out by clicking here.
Of course, the concert on September 2nd – the night before the local council elections – is to be headlined by Ox & The Fury, supported by Yardvark and Policing In Crisis. Held at Dicey Riley’s, pre-sale tickets are available now from Music Farmers and Haworth’s Guitars. Click here for all the latest info on the gig.
