On 14 December 1988, 4ZZZ was taken off air and forcibly evicted from its UQ premises by the then student union executive, headed by one Victoria Brazil. The move prompted many previously apolitical students to take a firm stand against the move and to rally support for the station. While Zed was not to return to the premises its' volunteers had helped hand-build, unprecedented community support saw the station live to fight another day.
KiddnKelly Gang are a four piece band with 2 guitars, ukulele, double bass and drums (brushes with suitcase). We perform originals and covers of alt country, folk/pop and blues tunes.
The KiddnKelly Gang are: Glenn "Cisco" Kidd on guitar, harmonica and vocals, Brenda Lee Kelly on guitar, ukelele and vocals, Craig "Billy" Tobin on drums and Anne-Marie "Dolly" Lawton on double bass. Glen and Brenda are both song writers who write about love gone wrong, old family yarns, places in Queensland as well as the occasional story about that “Little Girl in Mexico or “Kirra Beach Boy Baby”.
Our live shows blend folk and alt country blues with an Australian Twang that bears to mind “parties under the house with balloons tied to cement posts” or “margaritas on the back verandah” creating an atmosphere where the story paints the picture.
