Questions answered… Who are Escape The Muff?

johnboy 8 May 2009 8

So there I was buying a kebab at the Lyneham Pide House (the best kebab in the Inner North) when my attention was grabbed (as no doubt was their intent) by this poster.

You’d think visiting the website would have solved the conundrum.

But no… it was astonishingly free of any content to explain. But it did have a broken link to a Myspace page.

Fixing the broken address took me to that page which was similarly free of an explanation other than they’re a band of some sort.

Finally I found their Triple J Unearthed page and all became clear. EscapeTheMuff are an Electronic, Indie band from Canberra.

I know I know, just a sucker for viral marketing.

i was a transit bar last night and happened to see EscapeTheMuff show up, and let me just say, it was great.
kudos to those guys, they certainly know how to generate some publicity.

Poor effort on their behalf, by the sounds of it – how hard is it to provide a correct link?
