🖤💛❤️ Original Murri Time T-Shirts ARE BACK 🖤💛❤️

Celebrate the rich history of Indigenous music with the Original 4ZZZ Murri Time T-shirt designed by Anunakiu in 1983!

This T-shirt commemorates the formation of 4ZZZ's Murri Hour Radio in 1983 and pays homage to Indigenous musicians of the time, whose songs were messages of struggles and triumphs of the Brisbane Blacks.

This T-shirt represents an important historical milestone in the Brisbane Blacks community, from 1982 to the 1990s, so don't pass on this opportunity to honor history!

🎶 AOTW | Sarah Stockholm - Trace of Humanity 🎶

From the AOTW Committee - "Sarah Stockholm has cemented herself on the 4ZZZ airwaves these past several weeks with standout singles 'Soldiers' and 'Wonder'. They're just two singles off a fantastic long player Sarah has just released called 'Trace of Humanity'. Announcers have been digging it; we think you will too. Especially after this dark and danceable electro-pop intertwines it's way into your playlists. As always, we love supporting local artists such as Sarah, and this release fits nicely alongside another recent local artist we spotlighted, Moreton. Enjoy."

🟤 60 Years of Damaged Goods 🟤

And the people yelled for an encore.
But all they ate was the cake.
Then one lone unit yelled “sixty”.
And the people flocked to this unit.
Sixty years of damage you say.
Let us part the way and dust such salutations from the icing.
It was never about the unit - it was only ever for units.
And the night was open to repixelate upon.
Send them back.
Your kiss so sweet.
The change will do you good.
Oh so outro.

A night of laughing with friends. 
We are all just soxels in a scream.
Join us like a loose unit.

❓ Zed Trivia - Zed World Market Day 1993 ❓

ZED WORLD MARKET DAY On the 30th of October 1993, in Albert Park 

This was the Nazi one. There were rumours beforehand of a neo-fascist group coming to the Market Day to cause trouble. After all, when you don’t have a fence anyone can come. As evening fell, it was Hateman who inadvertently baited the young Nazis into action, waving swastikas, chanting and seigheiling at the band. 

Cool under pressure, singer Lance Sinclair teased them - “This is a Skrewdriver cover” and embarrassed them in front of the rest of the crowd. Lance said, "we just kept insulting them, blowing kisses at them, either hug­ging them or punching them in the head. It was more blatant at this show. 98% of our crowd were anti-fas­cist, and we were playing at an event where there was a certain communal spirit, but it was the first sign that I’d seen of the kind of ugliness that we’d see at large events like the Big Day Out."

Zooerastia’s singer Vicki took the direct approach with the Nazis abusing them with some colourful but always articulate language. Zooerastia were one of Quan Yeomans’s bands before Regurgitator. He played some blis­tering slap bass in this amazing little combo who only released one cassette in their short time together, and cre­ated a whole genre completely of their own - punk-funk.
