In November 2013, Queer Radio was chosen by an independent panel of judges to win the CAN Awards 2013 Media Award. The Community Action Network Awards were first introduced in 1997 to recognize achievement that is positive and makes a difference in the inner city areas of Brisbane. Coordinated by the New Farm Neighbourhood Centre, the award citation reads "For excellence in journalism/social media which promotes the social inclusion and equality for all".
The Brains Trust
They've been best described as 'electronic downbeat soul' meeting like 2 strangers getting down in the back alleyway of a dirty New Orleans underground lounge bar. Press play for wave after wave of Jonny's solid bass & beats, Ed's smooth electronic and synth melodies and a dramatic punch in the face when the soulful sounds of fiery redhead Jess Lean burst through the bass on your new set of speakers!
A deal was made, and a bizarre and vague series of events involving a mystical guru, brought about a heightened aptitude for the creation of a unique sounding style of rich soul music. The wager has never been revealed, but fans speculate upon a riddle that surfaced on a long lost Youtube channel (could've been myspace- lol) 'to live is to die and to die is to live for we hold things beyond your reach, our minds as golden as our masters hearts'....
Keep your eyes closed and your ears underground, when you hear The Brains Trust you will know.
