After 4ZZZ was evicted from its UQ premises in 1988, staff temporarily broadcast from the Mouth Coot-tha transmission tower, using a cassette player which was set up to go straight to air.
With the girl power of the Spice Girls, the grunge stylings of the Smashing Pumpkins and the visceral energy of Joan Jett - The Boys are an all-female grunge band hailing from the shores of Brisbane who are cause for excitement on the music scene!
The Boys began with six girls – who grew up beating the boys in the play ground and singing Nirvana classics into the mirror. They were drawn to one another with the common goal that music of the 2000's had become too generic – every song sounded like a rip off of another - and wished to bring back the late 1990's bohemian grunge sound.
The Boys revive the grunge scene of the 1990's with powerful guitar solos, driving synth and passionately, dirty lyrics. They provide an energetic show that’ll bring out the “angsty teen” in every listener.
