One of the most satisfying moments ever for Aussie alt-rock fans was when Jay from Frenzal Rhomb took on notorious radio personalities Kyle & Jackie O live on air. The Fox FM stunt was no doubt intended to publicly shame Frenzal for interrupting Jackie's MC spiel during Darwin's Bassinthegrass festival (which the then-Popstars
host had apparently rocked up 9-hours late for) and yelling something over her to the effect of "World Idol, Australian Idol, Popstars
, fuck ‘em, fuck the fucking lot of them”.
Instead of apologising for the act of no-fucks-given punkery (which apparently made poor Jackie cry), Jay flipped the tables and verbally fkn annihilated
Kyle & Jackie O both for calling up Frenzal's label and threatening to "bury" the band in retribution (despite never actually supporting their music anyway) and roasted them for being part of the machine that spits out TV-manufactured, use-by-dated pop careers at the expense of nurturing legitimate Aussie music talent. EPIC SHIT. Listen here.
