Game Boy Australia featured on GameSetWatch

Alex and I were lucky enough to be featured in a column on GameSetWatch written by our new friend (I hope) Drew.

[Jump Button is a bi-weekly column by Drew Taylor, written specially for GameSetWatch, that focuses on the art and substance of video game culture. This week – the second in a series of interviews that explores Australia's emerging 8-bit music scene.]

The article can be found here, and please do read it. His previous columns including one about DJ TR!P might also interest you.

Thanks again Drew for not making me sound like a total wanker. It is a hard task at the best of times. I can only imagine the amount of sarcasm you had to sift through to find some usable quotes.

Love,
Tom

I'll repost a link to this article on my site, then maybe a few of us Americans will take you more seriously =]

Was awesome to see you guys in action. Glad you liked the piece, too. I'm hoping to do a third in the series on someone who runs an 8-bit night, or has tried to.

And, yeah, I hope this is the start of something beautiful...

...well, you know, when you get around to answering my email about nanoloop on a micro. :P
