Passion 4 Punk Update – Pre orders and Launch Party

It’s early on a Saturday morning and I’ve been wandering around my house trying to work out what to do with myself.  After several months of pretty flat out activity doing the final selection of photographs, asking for consents and completing the design and layout of the Passion 4 Punk book, I’ve got nothing to do but wait.

I have ordered a test print of the book this week and now have to wait another week or so for the 1st copy of the book to be printed and delivered, so that I can do a final check before ordering the first print run. Needless to say I’m pretty excited!

In the meantime I thought I’d give you a little rundown on what the book is like.  The book is 80 pages (including the front and rear covers) and will be initially available as a soft cover measuring 20cm x 25cm.  A limited edition hard cover version of the book will also be made available soon.  Only 25 copies of the hardcover will be produced and each will be individually numbered.

There are 41 bands included in the book:


Admiral Ackbar’s Dishonourable Discharge

All We Need

Australian Kingswood Factory

Beyond Contempt

Bombs Are Falling

Coffin Wolf

The Cruntburgers

Dixon Cider


The FckUps

Ferocious Chode

Grim Reality

I Am Duckeye

Jay Wars and The Howard Youth


Joe Guiton and the Suicide Tuesdays

Launch Party and Pre orders

Krunchy, the captain of silliness and mirth at Knoodle Promotions has kindly offered to organise a launch party to help us release the book in style.  The launch party is scheduled to happen at the Last Chance Rock ‘n’ Roll Bar (formerly the Public Bar), 238 Victoria Street, North Melbourne on Saturday 16th April 2016.  So save the date and stay tuned for details about bands and times!

Currently I have enough funds on hand to print 50 copies of the soft cover edition of the book in readiness for the launch party (with much thanks to everyone involved in last years benefit show and fundraising activities), but given the interest in the book shown so far, I’m sure that this will not be enough to meet demand.

Given this, I’m offering up pre-orders to those people who want make sure they get a copy of the book on the launch date.

This offer is only available to people who are going to come to the launch show on the 16th April, to pick up the book.  If you can’t make it to the launch show, don’t worry.  The book will be available for sale online after the 16th of April.

If you are interested in pre-ordering the soft cover edition of the Passion 4 Punk book for $45.00 (AUD), or the Limited Edition hard cover version ($85.00 AUD), then fill out the form below and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible with details about how to make payment.

Pre orders will close at 5:00 PM (AEST) on Friday 18th March to allow enough time for delivery.
