After a number of years playing covers (very well too, I might add) and no doubt being hassled to play and release original material, Adelaide band Matterhorn have done just that.

Grab a copy when you see them play next, which may well be August 25th at The Gov, see the gig guide here. Check the band out online here. You can purchase their CD online there as well. All the other usual formats available.
