Giveaway :: Nuggets Antipodean Interpolations

December 21st 2012

Chicken nuggets, gold nuggets, tofu nuggets, …musical Nuggets? It’s a given that anything in tiny morsel-form is infinitely better than any other possible configuration. Lenny Kaye‘s seminal garage rock anthology of the same name, along with its subsequent re-imaginings are no exception to this rule.

Nuggets: Antipodean Interpolations is an non-edible event happening as part of Sydney Festival this January. Basically, it’s a celebration of ‘Nuggets: Original Artyfacts from the First Psychedelic Era’ which was released in 1972, making this year its 40th anniversary. So, what better way to celebrate than by gathering a bunch of amazing indie bands to form one giant musical nugget? Artists including The Laurels, Straight Arrows, King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard, The Murlochs and Gooch Palms will pay homage to legends like 13th Floor Elevators, Count Five, The Knickerbockers, and Michael & the Messengers. Yes, we’re drooling too.


Thanks to our pals at Sydney Festival, we’re playing Ronald McDonald and giving away some Nuggets! Not only is there a double pass to the Paradiso show up for grabs, there’s a three pack of nuggets which contains the 40th anniversary reissue, a Down Under Nuggets compilation, plus a third edition (which you may recognise as a former Album of The Week here on FBi) featuring some of our faves like Eagle and The Worm, BloodsPalms, Straight Arrows, Step-Panther and many, many more.

For your chance to win one of these delicious prizes, simply email and tell us which other seminal album(s) have influenced your taste in music.
