CHARTDISC Vol 1 (indie rock)




CHART is proud to announce CHARTDISC Volume 1 2009, a sampler CD featuring some of Christchurch's favourite bands that over the past twelve months have generated a real buzz within Christchurch and beyond.

Compilations featuring Christchurch bands are a rare thing, but with the support of several local music institutions such as The Dux, Real Groovy, RDU98.5FM, Creative Communities and many others, CHART has produced a promo sampler packaged in an eco-friendly CD wallet with indie classics from Christchurch’s best bands.

Launched in time for New Zealand Music Month 2009, CHART’s manager Jeff Fulton hopes the compilation will help spread the garden city’s music far and wide. ”It’s always been on CHART’s radar to produce a compilation and it’s an exciting collection of tracks. Featuring Bang Bang Eche, Tiger Tones, The L.E.D.s, The Enright House, The Insurgents, Clap Clap Riot, Minisnap, Kimo, Jimmy Zoom & The Beytown Grifters - CHART wants to help you find your new favourite band.

This collection of songs is also being sent throughout New Zealand and around the world, and NZ On Air is also lending their support. Brendan Smyth believes that, “Christchurch is the source of some of New Zealand's great music. We at NZ On Air applaud this initiative by CHART to put the spotlight on some of the new music coming out of Christchurch, to champion the next generation of great Christchurch music. Getting more New Zealand music played on New Zealand radio is NZ On Air's mission and we share this vision with CHART. Let's now share the music with the whole country."
