To celebrate 20 years of the annual Hottest 100, Triple J are asking people to vote for their favourite 20 tunes from the last 20 years. You have 20 days to do it in, starting from last tuesday! The website can be found here!
I trawled back through the last twenty years of hottest 100's to eventually pick about 60 plus tracks, I then whittled it down to the required twenty. I didn't pick anything outside the previous lists such as Bonnie Prince Billy or even some of my fav's that were in the list ( Massive Attack, Bjork, Faith No More, You am I, Beastie Boys etc), but that doesn't mean that you can't! I tried to throw in a good balance of local acts and some tunes that were great at the time, but if that artist was played on the J's now, listeners may complain (i.e Kylie). So go on and vote, especially if you are over 35! don't let the young un's do all the voting, besides they might not know half the great stuff that was out there 15-20 years ago, we oldies need to REPRESENT!!
Here is my list:
- Dave Graney 'n' The Coral Snakes - Night of the Wolverine, Part 1 (#48 in 1993's hottest 100- Aussie artist, sexy sounding, stylish and brilliant!)
