You may know the story, excellent local band sets off to foreign shores seeking fame and glory.
While many bands find success by touring our not unsizeable nation relentlessly, earning tags like 'hard-working' or 'live instituion,' there are many more who find Australian acceptance by first 'making' it overseas.

It's a strange thing, but one that many burgeoning bands must face.
