24. Nov. 2009, 14:36 von BlackCoffeeDuckNovember is almost over so I better do this or I'll never do it. Here in Australia on Triple J radio is Ausmusic month and ABCTV show Rage has joined in this year too. In Jmag The Drones won the top spot in their "Greatest Aussie Song Ever" Top 30 as voted by Aussie muso's. Winning with Shark Fin Blues, which got the most votes and so should they, check it all out here: http://blogs.abc.net.au/triplej/2009/10/greatest-aussie-songs-ever.html
Plus the other night The Drones won two A.I.R. Awards for "Independent Artist Of The Year" and "Best Independent Album" for Havilah and so should they too, check it out here: http://www.airawards.com.au/ (also they should win every A.R.I.A. award at the end of this week but will miss out more than likely because well, it's the crappy arias). Anyway I'm going to re-post Gareth Liddiard from The Drones top five votes for Jmag's greatest Aussie songs, which are:
28. Jul. 2009, 21:49 von VirgileVor langer, langer Zeit sagte ein weiter Mann "When you reach the monumental play count of 100.000 songs, you should celebrate it." und kaum Jemand wusste, dass dieses Zitat noch weiterging: "... but when you reach the even more monumental play count of 200.000 - you are the shits!"
Zwei Jahre und zwei Monate habe ich gebraucht um von 100.000 auf 200.000 gespielte Tracks bei last.fm zu kommen. Und um die letzten 51 fehlenden Titel ausgiebig zu feiern, durften sich ein paar Personen ein paar Lieder wünschen. Diese werden hier nun festgehalten:
199.950: dredg - "Quotes“
gewünscht von July
199.951: Feist - "1234“
199.952: Colin Hay - "Overkill“
199.953: 2 Brothers on the 4th Floor - "Dreams (Will Come Alive)“
