Projects > Max Q


Max Q consisted of Hutchence (vocals) and Ollie Olsen (songwriting and production) who were accompanied by key members of the Melbourne post-punk scene, most of whom had previously collaborated with Olsen. The project followed on from Hutchence and Olsen's work on the film Dogs In Space, where they met.

Max Q released their sole self-titled album in 1989 and had minor hits with the songs "Sometimes" (originally recorded by Olsen with Orchestra Of Skin And Bone) and "Way of the World". The album was more critically-acclaimed than commercially successful, and ever since it went out of print, it has yet to be re-issued. Also, the band had never performed any live shows.

In October 2006, two Max Q songs were featured in the Triple M Essential 2006 Countdown which had been voted by listeners. "Sometimes" was ranked 1301 out of 2006 songs and "Way of the World" was ranked 716.

    What you posted made a bunch of sense. However, what about this? suppose you were to create a awesome headline? I ain’t saying your content isn’t solid, but suppose you added a headline that grabbed people’s attention? You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post titles to grab viewers interested. You might add a video or a related picture or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say. Just my opinion.
