Battle Of The Sounds.
          Between 1966 and 1972 the Australian pop music scene was annually convulsed and excited by the occurrence of what appears to be a uniquely Australian phenomena known as the "Hoadleys Battle of the Sounds." The Battle of the Sounds was a national rock band contest staged to promote local Australian bands and foster new talent.
