Around 1998 4ZZZ, 4MBS, and Family Radio started broadcasting from the one installation at Mt Coot-tha. Prior to this 4MBS and Family Radio had merely leased land beside 4ZZZ but then Brisbane City Council decided that having three transmission towers and huts in the one place was an eyesore and encouraged the three radio stations to share facilities. This resulted in the three radio stations developing a company called Broadcasting Park to negotiate with the Council. This company consisted of three shares, one owned by each member station.
Great music generally comes from unlikely places. The slums of urban neighbourhoods, the massage parlours of the American South, or in the case of Outrageous Modesty, a dive bar in Singapore. After all, it's not everyday an Australian, an Englishman, and an American bond in Southeast Asia over whiskey and cigarettes and their love for folk music. Thus spawned the birth of one of the most eccentric folk-rock bands to emerge in the Australian music scene over the past few years.
With the release of their debut album titled Almost Live, a nine-track effort that combines traditional folk with a slew of influences, ranging from blues to 60s classics to contemporary rock, anthems such as “Without You” showcase the band's riveting melodic side, while songs like “Time” channel an alt-rock spirit that compels a crowd into a passionate singalong.
