Sex On Toast
Recorded & Mixed by John Robinson
Recorded at Woodford Folk Festival, 27th December, 2014.

Sex On Toast are a funked up lot, specialising in overblown choreography and onstage antics, these new-jack swingers feel ripped straight from another era. Last month saw the release of their brand new single, “Oh Loretta”, a throwback track that could have been recorded in the 70’s, but is nevertheless yesterday fresh.

Equal parts righteous and ridiculous, Sex On Toast are known for their raucous and engaging live shows. These Festival regulars, have performed on numerous stages across Australia, from Melbourne International Jazz Festival and Adelaide Fringe, to Apollo Bay Music Festival and Woodford Folk where this set was recorded. Live from the Bazaar stage and running through the new year, this is Sex On Toast.

The Eagle Junction
Recorded & Mixed by Branko Cosic.
Recorded at 4ZZZ Car Park on the 18th of April, 2015.

Local band The Eagle Junction are hard at work at the the moment, touring their particular brand of blues pop, kitsch-rock around Australia. After taking home the prize for Best Original Song at this year’s Qube Effect with their track, Your Face Ruins My Day, the band have gone on to release their debut LP. An understated, self-titled affair, The Eagle Junction LP is like an RSVP to the future, an affirmation of the band’s inevitable success.

4ZZZ were lucky enough to have The Eagle Junction play a set right here at the station’s luxurious carpark stage. The set was recorded on April 18th of this year for Street Soundzzz, as part of 4ZZZ’s youth week celebrations.
