Melbourne Water vol. 1

The Melbourne Water compilations documented the essential sounds of mid-00s indie. They were produced by David Nichols and Greg Wadley (organization and mastering), Mia Schoen (art and layout), Shane Moritz (liner notes) and Graham Lee (W.Minc label) and distributed on CD through Shock Records.

The producers are working to get the CDs online in time for the 20th anniversary in 2024.
