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".
Sound Of Colour
Sounds of Colour are a duo that have written a blend of alternative, acoustic, folk and rock, capitalising on soaring melodies and emotive acoustic guitar riffs played on a range of different guitar tunings. Their sound can be likened to if Missy Higgins and Jeff Martin of the Tea Party ever hooked up for a jam. Having played support for Nathan Cavalerie and Cause In Affect, the couple recently hit the studio and put together their debut album with Tall Poppy Productions.
'Black Sharp' is set to be released October this year at The Zoo in Brisbane.
