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.
When 2 young up-start's from the northern suburbs of Brisbane decided to temporarily put down their beers and pick up some instruments, the ever-loud rock outfit Ultrafeedy was born.
"This band is the next Oasis" and "These guys are so good it’s scary!" are just some of the quotes being thrown around the local skate bowl, after hearing tracks from their self-titled debut EP.
The band released the Ultrafeedy EP to the masses in early 2014.
Recorded and mixed at Alchemix Studio's, the band honed in on their punk rock influences whilst developing their own style of melody. The 5 tracks are guitar heavy, 90's style bangers, littered with tales of what it's like to be a 20-something growing up in Brisbane.
Ultrafeedy have been heckled at some of Brisbane's most infamous live venues including: X & Y Bar, The New Globe Theatre, Black Bear Lodge, Ric's Bar, The Zoo and Beetle Bar. Their live shows are likened to a full speed freight train threatening to run off the rails. Bursting with energy, and some hearty banter in between, these guys take performing their art seriously (unlike their band bio).
Now comes the new single Stonapop, taken from a second record to be released mid year. Recorded and mixed once again by Marly Luske, the track has a more mature sound to previous releases, with the band paying more attention to song structure and layering. Also present are the first signs of some pop sensibilities and a hooky chorus, giving a taste of things to come.
