This is the Bon Scott Project “cassette cover”. It’s basically a jazzed-up exhibition invitation card.
Here are a few pictures of the insert once you fold it out (click on ’em to see bigger):
[Kudos to James and Robyn from the Fremantle Arts Centre for the design work…]
If you’re lucky, you might have received one of these handsome fellows in the post courtesy of the Fremantle Arts Centre (if not, it might still be wending it’s way through your country’s undoubtedly ancient mail distribution system).
Sad to say, these collectable little beauties have run out now, so there’s not really any point emailing me to ask for more. Sorry ’bout that folks!
However, if you HAVE received one, here’s your chance to get a bonus limited edition CUSTOM DUBBED CASSETTE TAPE to whack inside your case! (For there is nothing more tragic than a case without a tape).
Yes, that’s right, I’m producing a small run of Bon-Scott-Blog Old-Skool-Mix-Tapes™!
The tape features songs which either :
(a). inspired Bon; or
(b). were inspired by Bon.
And the song selection is based on some not very thorough research I’ve done in the last few months… In mix-tape tradition, the contents will remain a mystery until it arrives in the post!
(The dubbing process takes a while – and believe me, it aint easy to find blank tapes in the shops any more. So while the tapes are laboriously spooling away, I’m still open to suggestions – any particular songs you reckon should be included on my Bon Scott Influences/Influenced Mix Tape?)
Here’s the deal:
I’ll send you a mix-tape, in exchange for a photo YOU take of YOURSELF with the Bon Scott Project cassette case you just received in the mail!
(Or if you were unfortunate enough to miss out on getting one of these cassette cases, don’t despair! Be inventive… take some equivalent shot. I dunno, something which shows that its really you, that you dig Bon, and which also includes some reference to the place where you come from. Preference will be given to pictures which are amusing/saucy/poignant etc…)
How does that all sound?
Email me your entries (jpg or whatever) together with your postal address, and I’ll get a tape out to ya!
Or – if you don’t have a digital camera, you can post your old-skool photo (or better still, a mix-tape of your design!) to –

Beautiful flyer, though it must be said it was a bit disappointing there was no tape inside. Very excited about your offer. May i suggest that you simply have to put Bonde Do Role’s acca dacca “mash-up” on there, purely because it rankles with so many AC/DC fans. It can be heard online here:
yeah, i know You Shook Me is not strictly Bon era, but it is on Back In Black, and if you lean towards the “Bon wrote that album” theory, Bob’s Your Uncle, it’s in!
Oh and stick some Hayseed Dixie on there too!
First cabs off the rank are Justin and Lyss, of Cottesloe, Western Australia, who sent this great pic:
and this message:
Thanks guys, I’ll send you out a mixtape soon!
