4ZZZ launched its glorious tradition of counting down listeners' 100 favourite songs on New Year's Day 1977. More than 10 years later, 2JJJ in Sydney (which employed many ex-Zed staff) began conducting its own Hot 100. Because 4ZZZ held the rights to the name Hot 100, there was a little bit of legal biffo when TripleJ became a national broadcaster, so they changed the name of their survey to the "Hottest 100".
Brisbane roof raisers Kingfisha have been laying down weighty reggae and dub, and bringing their passionate music to eager audiences for over five years - in the process cementing themselves as Australia’s premier reggae act. The six-piece band deliver crafted and modern reggae music by coupling their love of Jamaican rhythms with personal depth and style.
Their incredibly well received self titled debut album saw lead single ‘Piece of the Puzzle’ added to Triple J and landed album of the week status at PBS FM, Radio Australia and East Side Radio amongst plenty of rave reviews. Kingfisha have enjoyed touring opportunities that have taken them to some of the world’s most interesting places such as a recent wildly successful run of shows in Southern Africa including South Africa, Mozambique, Reunion Island and Swaziland.
Going from strength to strength, Kingfisha recently inked deals with 123 Agency for bookings and ABC Music for the release of "Offered It Up" ahead of their huge national tour.
Their latest album "Offered It Up" is available now through: http://abcmusic.lnk.to/OfferedItUp
