Australian music appreciation thread!

Just watching a show (on FOXTEL) about

"The songs that made us".

For 25 years APRA (Australasian Performing Right Association ) have been honouring the achievements of Australian musicians.

List your favs and raise your glasses ladies and gentlemen.

A favourite of mine that i felt terribly guilty of overlooking this song for my dessert survival tracklist.

"Throw your arms around me" - Hunters & Collectors - Human Frailty 1986

Also love INXS (w/ Michael Hutchence) and Icehouse.

Australia has produced some fabulous music.

Great thread!!

Cold Chisel would have to be my favourites along with Crowded House (remember anything crap from Oz gets pawned off to NZ, and anything good to come from NZ is officially Ostrayan. )Khe Sahn is THE definitve Australian anthem. There is no better way to finish a party then to have 20/30 pissed blokes standing in a circle, arms around each other, belting out "the last plane outta Sydney's almost gone!!!!!!"

It's a shame Aussie music can't hold its head up so high these days.

I agree. I got so sick of Straight Lines and BFRW after 2 million plays on the radio... Imagine seeing Cold Chisel and the rest in their hayday

Countdown

There is a four part series titled Great Australian Albums on SBS starting in late July some might be interested in. Here is the schedule (and the bands/albums featured).

Silverchair, Diorama - 8.30pm, Saturday, July 28, SBS
Crowded House, Woodface - 8.30pm, Saturday, August 4, SBS
Triffids, Born Sandy Devotional - 8.30pm, Saturday, August 11, SBS
The Saints, (I’m) Stranded - 8.30pm, Saturday, August 18, SBS

At least a few are bound to be interesting.

The one on the Triffids even includes an interview with my favourite not-quite-Aussie-but-he-is-a-permanent-resident musician.

(and also interviews with Paul Kelly and members of the Go-B's)

Clips from each episode are here

May as well count them here, but I love Split Enz and Crowded House in moderation, I mean I don't know if I could listen to them all the time but they're such a treat every now and again.

I used to really love the Baby Animals when I was younger. INXS too. And the Oils... and Chisel. I still rather like all of them, just not as much.

Go for it man! That's what I left it for. I need the friends... I'm almost at 100.

How humilating is it when you start and it says 'you have 1 friend'

Back on topic...
