Matthew Mole WIns The Get Out Of The Garage Competition

matthew-mole-photo-get-out-of-the-garageLadies and Gentlemen, the Converse “Get Out Of The Garage Competition” has officially come to an end and the winner, as you may have guessed from the title of this post, is Matthew Mole!

Matthew will play at London’s 100 Club on Oxford Street, which has seen some EPIC acts take to the stage in the 70 years it’s been open.

I have to be completely frank at this point and say that though there’s no denying Matthew has a lot of talent and heart and is a great song-writer, he wasn’t my first choice to win it.

“Get Out Of The Garage” Shortlists Top 10 Unsigned SA Bands

GOTGtop10KAPOW! From three posts in two weeks to two posts in ONE DAY shit is off the chizain at SlickTiger Industries today.

So as you may have guessed from the title of this post, the final 10 bands have been selected for the Converse “Get Out Of The Garage” competition.

You can vote for the bands at the Converse FB page here: http://on.fb.me/getoutofthegarage where you can hear their tracks, check out their videos and read their bios.

It’s a great selection of bands, the judges Zulu Boy, Jon Savage and Garick Williams selected them from 138 entries and I think they  nailed it when it comes to selecting bands that are representative of what SA has to offer.

Unsigned SA Bands, This One’s For You

Plain 500x500 GOTG #247E2E2Having gone to the varsity I did (the kind where you spend four years drunk), the only 100 Club I’d ever heard of involved 100 shots of beer in 100 minutes with no toilet breaks.

Believe it or not, I actually managed to achieve that admirable feat not once, but TWICE during my varsity career, BOOM!

But there’s another 100 Club I want to tell you guys about, it opened in London in 1942, has hosted some of the most influential artists on the PLANET during its 70 year history and is now opening its doors to one lucky unsigned SA band to melt faces there later this year.
