Yep sure do, had a squiz at it on YouTube (ah what would I do without it? More work?). And it is a pretty good tune, bit of an Oasis influence there? I didn't recognise the song at first, it must have been released during one of the periods when I wasn't listening to radio that much..

No, just the lead guy. He was introduced as Mondo.

Just realised. Thinking of the wrong band/person. Boy is my face red.

I downloaded Happy Birthday Helen, Accidently Kelly Street (check out the Late Show's rip off, it's hilarious, I'll upload if anyone wants it) and Electric Blue, which kicks arse.

And I personally wouldn't name Frente as a great Australian band. they were one-hit wonders really.

Ah OK, thought the name was a bit out of place for U2's Lovetown tour.. So who was it who was playing support for them, out of interest?

And yeah fair call on Frente. If we're talking iconic Aussie artists, I'd only consider a very small number of those mentioned to be in that category and Frente wouldn't be one of them. One hit wonders isn't too far off the mark but I'd hope you wouldn't say that Accidentally Kelly Street is that one hit, it's very cringe-worthy I reckon. :P Ordinary Angels was nice, and they did a neat cover of Bizarre Love Triangle.

Hey if you're looking for more of the best of Icehouse, try songs like Dusty Pages, No Promises (see earlier link to video), Hey Little Girl, Great Southern Land, Man Of Colours, Paradise, and lots of other songs that probably sound a bit dated to everyone else except for me who's heard them too many times.

Off the top of my head I would be half guessing it was Big Audio Dynamite that opened for U2 on the aussie leg of lovetown?...

Nah close though, B.A.D. (and someone else) opened on the Zoo TV tour in Aus. Everyone was fairly subdued until B.A.D. kicked into Rush..

Augie March's Sunset Studies and Strange Bird are gorgeous albums.

They were incredible back in the day. Remember it was INXS, U2 and Guns 'n' Roses all at their peak?

Nowadays they kinda suck. If they wanted to go on they should not have called themselves INXS again.

Was it not 'Weddings, Parties, Anything' that opened for U2 on the Lovetown Tour here in Oz?? I'm pretty sure I remember correctly ...

and Kim Salmon & the Surrealists for the Zoo TV Tour
