Spotify just got a cool shot of hard rock! The recently re-released Nitidus EP Still Here is now available on the popular on-demand music platform, ready to be added to your rock playlist. You can listen to it right now, along with follow up EP The Taste, both available for your streaming pleasure! Go hit that play button and get ready to rock!
Here’s one from the archives: can you believe they actually gave us our own radio show back in 2005? Neither could we, but it happened. The boys from Nitidus were talkin’ trash and playin’ music from 7pm til 8:30pm every Thursday night on Syn 907 (90.7fm) with a show about Melbourne rock music for Melbourne rock music lovers. Sadly, it’s all over now, but here’s a few happy snaps from The Jamming Rooms.
The Alcock, Thompson and Taylor ad campaign featuring Nitidus track “The Taste” off the 21 Alibis EP extends across the FM network, due to be aired on breakfast radio on 104.3 Gold FM. If you’re in the Melbourne area, listen this Thursday 17th Dec from 8.20am. We’re told the ad will be on at 8.26am on the dot…. set your alarms if you’re like us and not morning people!
Thanks once again to the clan at Alcock’s. They have balls!
If you turned on to 105.1 Triple M in the last two weeks, you will have heard a familiar track amongst Nitidus circles. As part of Alcock, Thompson and Taylor Billiard Tables advertising campaign, The Taste off Nitidus’ recent 21 Alibi’s EP has been doing the rounds on the M’s (we always knew we’d slip it through the back door past the program manager somehow!). To hear Nitidus in gut busting digital surround sound, tune into The Peanut Gallery with Jeff and Paul weeknights from 6.00pm. Oh, yeah… and buy a billiard table from those funky cats at Alcocks…
Firstly, congratulations to HR King for winning the Perisher Launch Your Band Australian music competition for his song Fearless. Of course that also means that Nitidus didn’t win unfortunately… but for every door that closes, another opens and once more we put the call out to you awesome people to flex your voting power.
Adam has entered some Nitidus tracks to Triple M’s Unsigned Find competition (cheers Adz!).

Have fun, good luck and thanks for your support, you guys rock!
If you’re in Melbourne, fire up your trusty ol’ FM radio and tune into Shock Treatment, Wednesday nights on PBS 106.7fm. Your host Kev Lobotomi cranks out the local rock from 8pm til 10pm, including the occasional Nitidus track (if you want more, ya gotta request it).
For 25 years, PBS-FM has been a beacon of independent, freeform, passionate, real and unpretentious radio. PBS is a champion of specialist and under-represented music and is proudly non-corporate, anti-fashion and wanker-free.
Nitidus are proud members of PBS 106.7fm, so show ’em some love.
Somehow amongst all the chaos, this juicy little bit of news slipped past my radar until now. Nitidus was recently judged to be one of the top 30 acts by Commercial Radio Australia in their New Artists to Radio initiative.
Judging was done by music directors from Austereo, DMG, Australian Radio Network and Southern Cross Media. Apparently they thought our entry was “of excellent quality” and were very impressed with the tracks. We’re pretty happy to be considered one of the top 30 acts by the heavy weights of Australia radio… especially since we’ve been shunned by the commercial stations many times before. Not that we’re bitter.
New Artists 2 Radio (NA2R) is an initiative of Commercial Radio Australia – the industry body for Australia’s 260 commercial radio stations. It’s one of the ways in which the commercial radio sector helps to nurture and support Australian musical talent. If you’re in an unsigned independent Australian band or solo artist, check out their website for details on how to enter your music into NA2R.
Nitidus have entered the infamous Triple J Unearthed competition (you know, the one that launched bands like Grinspoon, Killing Heidi and Missy Higgins). If you would like to see Nitidus be Unearthed, you can help by rating and reviewing us at this website:
You will need to register a free account at the Triple J website to write a review.
The power is in your hands.
Tune in to Syn 90.7fm Friday morning around 7:45am AEST to catch a phone interview with Nitidus bass player Marki.
You can now vote for Red Morning on the The Hoist Top Ten at Syn907! Go to www.syn.org.au to cast your vote, and don’t forget to tune into 90.7fm for The Hoist (7-9am AEST).
