Hottest 100 results and live footage

January 26, 2010 by  

The 2009 edition of the Triple J Hottest 100 chart has been published, with Wolfmother appearing only once (!), at position 75 with Cosmic Egg lead single “New Moon Rising”. This mediocre result for the band is in huge contrast to their rankings in the 2005 edition, where the band broke records by having six of their songs included in the 100, including “Mind’s Eye” at #6, “Joker & the Thief” at #9 and “Apple Tree” at #16. The following year, the Wolfies featured twice, with “Love Train” and the MSTRKRFT remix of “Woman” at positions 80 and 55, respectively; and in 2007 the soundtrack-only “Pleased to Meet You” was rated the 83rd best song of the year.

The winner of this year’s Hottest 100 was the song “Little Lion Man” by English indie-folk rock band Mumford & Sons, which was also named the “Hottest Record in the World” by BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe in July. Both Muse and Florence the Machine were featured in this year’s 100 more than any other artist — a total of four entries each, with “Uprising” and “Dog Days Are Over”, respectively, occupying the ninth and tenth spots. Also ever-present were comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, neo-psych Englishmen Kasabian and Australian post-punk band The Temper Trap, all with 3 entries each. In total, Australian acts occupied 36 of the 100 spots, while the UK and the US took 52 of the remaining 64 positions. Also to be noted is that “Little Lion Man” had the largest winning margin in Hottest 100 history.

ADDITIONAL NEWS! A video of Wolfmother performing Cosmic Egg opener “California Queen” at the Coronet Theatre in London, England on 21 October 2009 has been uploaded by the band’s official YouTube profile. A PRO-SHOT, awesome HD quality clip showing the new Wolfmother members at their very best has been met with anticipation and rumours, the latter relating to the possibility of a DVD release of live footage sometime in the (hopefully near, but potentially not) future. As an attendee of aforementioned concert, I vaguely recall the phrase “recording for DVD” coming from Andrew Stockdale’s mouth, although I may have misheard. Two main options are that: (1) the Coronet gig will be released as a standalone concert DVD, or (2) the Coronet footage will be included on a DVD documenting the entire “New Moon Rising World Tour”. Anyway, it’s awesome! So check it out.
