National Rotation Has Members of Thirty Seven in Triple J Heaven Hot Local Band Leads Fight Against Suicide



Who: 37
Where: Lucky Country Hotel
Author: Yae Morton
When: Friday February 15, 2002

YOUNG Newcastle group Thirty Seven have their sights set on the big time after they received national airplay on Triple J. The group's song Hoon was used in a gig at the Palais for youth suicide prevention, which the group said it was concerned about.

Self-described as alternative rock, the band will also release a new single titled Elephant Song through independent record label Melody Line Records. A film clip to accompany the release of the new track is expected to be released by April.

Since forming just over a year ago, Thirty Seven has already performed dozens of gigs including support slots alongside big-name acts such as Frenzal Rhomb, H2O and Primary. The huge gig took place at Tomteland Fun Park last year and frontman Tim said the band received a big response equal to that of the main acts.

'The crowd was pretty receptive,' Tim said.

The band made it to the finals of the national Battle of the Bands competition in the Sydney Rock Eisteddfod in 2001.

Although half the band is yet to complete high school, they have built a loyal fan base through performances at venues such as the Palais Royale, The Cambridge Hotel and the Lass O'Gowrie. Thirty Seven will perform at the Lucky Country Hotel on February 15.
