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.
Brisbane duo ROO describe their music as electric indie/folk/swamp/blues but are often described as a ‘rock’ band.
Roo’s soulful vocals and grungy guitar blend with Dean Hamilton’s tight backing vocals and jazz influenced drums to create a raw live sound as big as a band.
Their emotionally intense performances come with ridiculous outfits and intentionally awkward banter.
