After 4ZZZ was evicted from its UQ premises in 1988, staff temporarily broadcast from the Mount Coot-tha transmission tower, using a cassette player which was set up to go straight to air.
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
