Unplugged CD Launch - International version
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Aussie Celtic survivors the last band standing.
Brisbane, Australia. 2 December 2004.
Bun' Ber E Celtic Bands will launch their latest CD release, Unplugged, at Dicey Reilly's, Garden City, on Sunday, 12 December 2004 at 9am.
Unplugged features the boys in a high-energy stand-and-deliver performance - just like they're playing in your lounge room.
The album was produced, recorded, mixed and mastered in home studios in Brisbane, and features 10 traditional tracks given the high-energy Bun' Ber E treatment, plus an irreverent original song "Heart's With You".
Band leader Malcolm Ketchion said the latest release shows off a uniquely Australian take on what Celtic music could be.
"In Australia, we're a little removed from what the original Celtic cultures have become," he said, "and it would be silly for us to cling to what they were."
"But we love the heritage they gave us and want to try to reflect where that heritage has been taken by Australians."
"We Aussies love a joke and a good time, too, so Bun' Ber E focuses on keeping the energy and humour up. We don�t play many cry-in-your beer songs."
"The tunes on Unplugged are performed just the way the tourists love them at Southbank and the way they work for audiences in beergardens all over the place."
"It's all about having a cracking good, sometimes silly, time - and judging by radio and audience response it's working for us."
Like its predecessor, Ceilidh, Unplugged will be released to a global audience via web-based record company CDBaby and pay-per-song distributors like Apple iTunes, which has proved a great success for Bun' Ber E.
The tracks can be sampled via www.bunbere.com and the album can be downloaded or ordered from that site. Hard copies can be ordered via that site or bought from the band's shows.
