DARDANELLES, one of the three winners of Round 1 of The JD Set have advised the organisers today that they are not able to take part in this national band initiative due to illness.
It’s final! Drum roll please… The three winners of The JD Set’s first round national tour are ANGELAS DISH, BRAINDEAD LOVERS and DARDANELLES.
It’s the stuff of rock & roll dreams are made of: Having given music fans the chance to vote for which of their favourite up-and-coming live acts they want to see perform together on a major national, playing in some of the most legendary live music venues across Australia, these three bands have run in the trifecta in what was a tight horse race between six great bands.
ANGELAS DISH, a four-piece band of rockers originating from the Central Coast of NSW, took one of the top three honours, and evidently will be looking forward to getting some more attention around Australia in support of their recently released debut album, War On Time.
Having emerged from a prime spot supporting The Divinyls last year, rocking trio BRAINDEAD LOVERS have recently released their debut self-titled EP, enjoying much radio play. After The JD Set this should be guaranteed for them!
Similarly, DARDANELLES will also enjoy some much appreciated exposure following the tour, having also released a debut offering; acclaimed album Mirror Mirror, which was a finalist for the 2007 Australian Music Prize.
