"This is a collection of my favourite NZ bands. Bands who I felt worked well with the characters and whose songs would help drive the film along at the pace it deserved. As a director, I have made music videos for eight of the eleven artists featured on this album. The other three bands are all my friends from Hamilton on whom some of the film's characters are very loosely based. These songs, combined with the amazing orchestral score composed by Victoria Kelly and the dark sound design by Tim Prebble and Dave Whitehead make The Locals leap off the screen and leave you with a lasting impression." - Greg Page - August 2003

2003 New Zealand Film Awards - Best contribution to a soundtrack - Awarded to: Tim Prebble, Dave Whitehead, Gethin Greagh
