Australia has a history of power pop that arguably stretches back to The Easybeats in the 60s. Since then countless bands have mined the genre to greater or lesser success, however it is hard to think of any album in the last ten years that comes anywhere close to The Wellingtons - For Friends in Far Away Places. Killer hooks, wry lyrics and great production, The Wellingtons do some serious justice to a proud Australian musical tradition.

David Bash, CEO of The International Pop Overthrow Festival
"When I first heard the debut disc by The Wellingtons, a keen power pop band from Melbourne, I was moved enough by their power pop smarts and delicious hooks to invite them to play the music festival I organize, International Pop Overthrow.? Though they're still young chronologically, they possessed a stage savvy that went beyond their years, leaving fans at several venues suitably impressed."
