The Canberra Times informs us that Chris Colonna of The Bumblebeez fame has had his Braidwood studio turned over including the computers with all the songs on them for his next album.
Bad enough for any artist, but in the electronic realm much of the work is the painstaking arrangement of effects in editing. You can’t steal a folk artist’s work but you very much can this stuff.
On the other hand it’s not like a thief can sell un-released Bumblebeez tracks for much so he’s hoping to get at least the hard drive returned.
Apparently this co-incides with their first Canberra performance since they controversially won the last proper TripleJ unearthed comp to be held in Canberra in long ago 2002.
Stonefest this weekend has been judged sufficiently grand for the band to make an appearance.
