All proceeds will go towards Sydney's FBi Radio

Record labels Dinosaur City and Spunk have released a live compilation, ‘Hometowns: Back to Where it Began’, to raise funds for Sydney’s FBi Radio.

The album is a mix of recordings from the two labels’ joint Hometowns 2019 tour through regional New South Wales, with stops in Bellingen, Wagga Wagga, Bermagui, Narooma, Wombarra, Kiama and more.

It includes live tracks from Flowertruck, Body Type, Lachlan Denton and Emma Russack (Pop Filter, The Ocean Party), Floodlights, Big White and more from both labels’ rosters. On the tour, artists were often playing in venues like community centres, scout halls, warehouse spaces and bowling clubs. Many of the bands were returning to their regional hometowns.
