Every act on By The C has had a no one album or single. Icehouse’s biggest hit was ‘Electric Blue’ in 1987.

James Reyne hit number one Australian Crawl and ‘Reckless’ in 1983.

Since 2003’s ‘Feeler’ Pete Murray has delivered five Top 10 albums, including three number ones. His most recent ‘Camacho’ peaked at no 3 on the ARIA chart.

Baby Animals self-titled album in 1991 was a number one record. The second album ‘Shaved and Dangerous’ reached number two.

Killing Heidi had their first number one with ‘Mascara’ in 1999.

Melbourne’s Motor Ace reached no 1 with their second album ‘Shoot This’ in 2002.
