Leigh Hanlon, co-producer of HankFest 2003 -- in which contestants worldwide were invited to submit original songs written in the style and spirit of Hank Williams Sr. -- writes:

I thought your readers might be interested in knowing that "We're Not Sharing The Moon" by Trish Anderson of Melbourne is among three finalists in HankFest 2003's Ghost Writers In The Sky songwriting competition. Trish sings and plays guitar as part of the popular band Git.

Voting ends at midnight tonight, Chicago time, so vote for Trish now. The winning tune will be performed Tuesday at Schubas Tavern. Any Australians who turn up will be given free beer in exchange for money.

This is how weird the world is now. We had a block party Saturday her eon the north side of Chicago. Bunch of the neighbors played music and they dragged in a ringer on guitar, who is one of the organizers of Hankfest at Schuba's a few blocks away.

Today I read about it on an Australian weblog. Globalization must be stopped, you Australians are taking over and destroying our native culture!

I saw Git play a while back down Brunswick St, Fitzroy. From humble beginnings great things start, good on you Trish and the rest of Git.
