Newcastle’s Jones The Cat have taken out the top prize in this year’s national ‘Unisounds’ competition worth over $100,000. Formerly known as the National Campus Band Competition, that launched the careers of artists like Jebediah, Eskimo Joe, and Augie March, Unisounds, in it’s inaugural year has taken over as the premier University band competition in the country.
The 4-piece entered the competition as a wildcard, winning the public vote over 5 other bands from around to country to gain entry to the finals held at Sydney’s Oxford Arts Factory. The band won over judges with a frantic and sweaty live show to take home a $100,000 prize package including an international record release supported by Canada’s Dine Alone Records, recording time with ARIA award winning producers and much, much more.
Not a band to stand still, Jones the Cat are immediately on tour again with shows scheduled from Brisbane to Canberra as part of their Spring tour. Catch Jones the Cat’s frenzied, not-to-be missed live show at their upcoming dates.
” Jones The Cat are a riot. Frantic and urgent yet pin pointed in all of their delivery .” – Laundry Echo
“ The entire set was so overwhelmingly shred-filled that at one point I found myself with my jaw to the floor, feet cemented, while this mountain of a man literally threw himself around like a rag doll, clearly having the time of his life on stage .” – Newcastle Mirage
