It sounds like a new \m/ metal festival featuring bands like Anal Corpse and Deathface, but it’s actually a collaborative project by ABC Local Radio across the country to find the greatest bands that never were.

If you were in a band back in the day that was awesome but never sold a record or headlined a gig, then now is your chance to shine. In a nice bit of reverse ageism, all entrants must be aged over 30 and have been in an amateur band of two or more people. Entries close on July 15 – the best bands will be in an ABC TV series.
