Congratulations are due to the homie Pez for his debut ARIA Award nomination today.
Pez’s A Mind Of My Own LP is up for the Best Urban Album gong, alongside releases from Hilltop Hoods, Phrase, Horrorshow and Astronomy Class. Some stiff competition but let’s see how we go…
(Oh, and if you’re wondering why this post is accompanied by a red carpet pic of the ‘brunette era’ Veronicas… well, it’s my blog, I’ll post what I like.)
Whattup to all my gamblers. Think you’ve got the Triple J Hottest 100 winner in the bag? Then head over to Centrebet and try your luck… The Mars Volta and Sage Francis are paying some really good odds!
Seriously though, you can tip ‘The Festival Song’ for that Number One Spot at $14.00 (ranked equal 10th with Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), or you can go head-to-head with Vampire Weekend’s ‘A-Punk’ at odds of $2.05 (or $1.75 if you’re leanin’ towards the Weekend for a win).
And if you’re looking for an easy double-your-money bet… well, ‘Sex On Fire’ looks as safe as houses. Good luck!
Ayo! Just a heads up that voting in Triple J’s annual Hottest 100 countdown begins on Boxing Day (26th December, 2008).
We would love it if you would vote for Pez’s ‘The Festival Song’… and as a reward, you can go into the running to win the ultimate festival (song) experience. For live music fans, it doesn’t get much better than that!
Head to the Hottest 100 website to register to vote and check out the hitlist!
Young 360 has finally decided to grace the internets with a dedicated music blog, where’ll you find details of his latest sonic endeavours including the follow-up to his debut LP What You See Is What You Get.
Must say I agree with his musings on the surplus of great pop music doing the rounds at the moment. Can’t wait to hear how he incorporates his current electro-fresh muse into the new material!
Ooh yes… ‘Ain’t Got Time’ feat. Count Bounce (TZU) is now officially on the Triple J hit parade.
Strike two for Pez, and a second chance for you, dear reader, to get your request on!
Thanks for the ongoing support, it’s “all starting to show” (cue laughter).
