It sort of jumps from a news piece into a review, but yeah thanks.

I had a dream that you had an article on the front page of the Sun last night, Danny.

That should speak a thing or two.

Hey, I had a dream in 2001 that Steve Irwin died, and guess what? He died! You're set for life, champ.

Wow great review COBL 04, I gotta stand front row and see the Oils at their last U.S. show in 2002, and meet them afterwards...can't believe its been 6 years since they called it quits, so awesome to see them perform once again...truly one of the great live bands in history.

Cool U2inUtah. Musta been great to meet them. Can't believe it's been that long since we last saw them. They were always great live. I remember the show shortly after 9/11. Peter was clearly agitated when they came out, mumbling something about the hassle of getting in the USA. They opened with a ripping Redneck Wonderland. Thought of that cuz they opened this show with it.

COBL, if Bonnie says she dreamed your gonna be on the front page, it's gonna happen. If not the Sun, we have the Weekly World News here. You get to make up whatever you want. They'll print it

Hunters were one of my all time favorite shows. At one of the dumpiest bars in LA. Musta been early to mid-80's. Some of my fave H&C songs are Judas Sheep, Sway, Run Run Run, World of Stone, Talking to a Stranger. Devastating sound live. Archer's bass & the Horns of Contempt

Glad you made it there. Enz and a short Crowded House set Wasn't Coldplay there also?

They played in Sydney unfortunately... and they went off in Sydney. But the MCG would have fucking exploded had they played there.

I even like Viva La Vida (the song) live.

I don't really like the studio version of Fix You all that much, I don't think many do. But it's fucking stellar live.

Now I was going to make a thread about this, but decided not enough people will know him, so I'll just post it here. But I'm beginning to really love Paul Kelly. He's amazing. Here's a bloke, one of, if not the, best singer/songwriters Australia has produced, who could have just as easily been a poet, or a novelist, an Aboriginal rights campaigner even. I will go so far as to say he is our Bob Dylan - and that's not just because he plays the harmonica. He's a storyteller. I've got his best of, Songs From the South, and been loving him more and more since I saw him at Sound Relief. Unfortunately I won't be able to see him in May because I've got cricket presentation the same night. But man what an artist.

Take a song like Everything's Turning to White. Have a look at the lyrics!

Late on a Friday my husband went up to the mountains with three friends
They took provisions and bottles of bourbon to last them all through the weekend
One hundred miles they drove just to fish in a stream
And there's so much water so close to home
When they arrived it was cold and dark; they set up their camp quickly
Warmed up with whisky they walked to the river where the water flowed past darkly
In the moonlight they saw the body of a young girl floating face down
And there's so much water so close to home
When he hold me now I'm pretending
I feel like I'm frozen inside
And behind my eyes, my daily disguise
Everything's turning to white
It was too hard to tell how long she'd been dead, the river was that close to freezing
But one thing for sure, the girl hadn't died very well to judge from the bruising
They stood there above her all thinking the same thoughts at the same time
There's so much water so close to home

They carried her downstream from their fishing; between two rocks they gently wedged her
After all they'd come so far, it was late
And the girl would keep; she was going nowhere
They stayed up there fishing for two days
They reported it on Sunday when they came back down
There's so much water so close to home
When he holds me now I'm pretending
I feel like I'm frozen inside
And behind my eyes, my daily disguise
Everything's turning to white
The newspapers said that the girl had been strangled to death and also molested
On the day of the funeral the radio reported that a young man had been arrested
I went to the service a stranger; I drove past the lake out of town
There's so much water so close to home
When he holds me now I'm pretending
I feel like I'm frozen inside
And behind my eyes, my daily disguise
Everything's turning to white

Incredible.

he writes wonderful songs, but the singing is not always the greatest. Some of his lyrics are amazing

and you right about the Bob Dylan thing, because they are my same thoughts about him.
