Cool Weapon

Round 3 of Tooheys Extra Dry’s uncharTED competition has just begun and local electro heroes Cool Weapon have already caught the eyes and ears of Sony BMG’s participating A&R and Guest Artists The Bumblebeez. The A&R crew at Sony BMG have checked out the entries and selected Cool Weapon as one of their Hottest Picks for the competition. Previous Canberra Unearthed winners The Bumblebeez also selected Cool Weapon in their 5 Hottest Picks.

One of only three ACT entries in this round of uncharTED, Cool Weapon are the only Canberra-based act to receive any attention from the Sony BMG A&R or Guest Artists. Major prizes in the competition include a firm single record deal with Sony BMG Red Label and a spot on the Big Day Out 2008 Tour.

What the boys need now is your votes. Click on the image below or head to www.uncharted.com.au to sign up and leave your vote for Cool Weapon.

Sounds good… Keep us in the loop. We’re on at the Phoenix again next month if you wanna party with us too…

excellent.. well I look forward to some further outstanding performances. (though I would like to see the love child of those two minds uninhibited)

Actually once I get my solo funkydubpsytechelectrobreakblast stuff together wouldn’t mind trying to tee up a gig with you boys (CW or MR).. aiming to be ready for consumption in 6 months.. but will email at later date to organise if keen. BAM

Ha ha… No need to fear, both Modge and I keep everything pretty true to Marc’s original vision and Marc and I are pretty good at keeping him in line… 😉 Stay tuned…

cool – but thats a scarey prospect.. I have heard some of mr modgeulators solo stuff and that coupled marcs whack lets throw in as many key and timing changes as we can style brain… could be interesting to say the least!! good luck anyways

*lol* Now now kids, let’s place nice.

I have no complaint with you landing 5 positive votes a day on us though! 😉

Votes are daily. You get 5 +ive votes and 1 -ive. I’d suggest logoning on each day and landing Cool Weapon with +5 votes and knocking whoever is the next band above them down 1 😉

Hey guys,

Thanks a bunch for the support! We sincerely appreciate it.

It’s still on the cards Absent Diane, however time is an increasingly precious commodity and I last left the ball in Marc and Modgeulator’s court to get some specifics together and I’m still yet to hear back from them on it… Perhaps your attention is best directed at them, preferably in some form of harassment… 😉

yeah same – loved the plastic guitar spazness.. definately a unique band in the canberra scene. Will drop ewes a vote or two.

Hey paroxy how long before you and marc get his solo shiz goin full ball with more than just vox and keys?.. been waiting for that for ages

Congrats to the Cool Weapon guys!

Shared a bill with those guys a coupla months back – very impressed!
