Delete Advertisement. Group is non-notable. The article stub even mentions their only notable track is a tribute, but cites no significant fame. --BenWilson 13:16, Mar 3, 2005 (UTC)

  • Keep and expand. This band has released two albums on the Classic label. The song Lotion made the Triple J Hottest 100, 2004. A BBC Review of their sophomore album from September 2004 mentioned that the group would be embarking on a world tour shortly so presumably they have played some dates on that. Appears to meet Wikiproject music guidelines1 Capitalistroadster 17:30, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, band promo. There is a difference between having toured and planning to tour. In terms of overall marketshare, TripleJ only has a fraction of listeners compared to the commercial networks. TripleJ in Melbourne for instance only has 4.1% marketshare. Megan1967 22:46, 3 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, two albums is enough to meet the notability guidelines. Kappa 00:25, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, per reasons discussed by Capitalistroadster. ElBenevolente 00:57, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment. All Music Guide shows the band having recorded two albums Present the Ziggy Franklen Radio Show in 2003 and Pleetch in 2004. [1] The BBC Review I posted confirms this. confirms that the band has started its tour referred to in the BBC review including visits to the Winter Music Festival in Miami and the South by Southwest Festival both this month. [2]. As stared early, this band meets the WikiMusic Project guidelines which indicates it should be kept. Capitalistroadster 01:23, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Please cite these guidelines. --BenWilson 19:51, Mar 5, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep. I'm unsure whether they just scrape in or absolutely romp in, but it's keep either way. Just BTW, I've just added the vfd notice to the article, didn't anyone else notice it was missing? Andrewa 03:16, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
    • Many appologies. I thought I'd done that. Maybe I didn't save. --BenWilson 19:51, Mar 5, 2005 (UTC)
  • If they've had two albums released (other than by themselves :) ) that's notable enough. Keep. Radiant! 09:39, Mar 4, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep, and keep - David Gerard 01:36, 5 Mar 2005 (UTC)
  • keep, since they are notable in UK, due to their connection with John Peel (as noted in text i just added) Jdcooper 15:19, 7 Mar 2005 (UTC)
