Actually about 4 of the bands mentioned here Ive never even heard of. Brooklyn Star and Fruit? Hmmm.. Are u people sure they are Australian?

Crowded House are confused because Neil is a Kiwi and the other 2 (i think Paul is) are Aussies.
They get listed as both a NZ and Aussie band but I think they call themselves Australian. One of the reasons they split was because Neil wanted to go back to live in NZ.

my comment .. THE LIVING END!!!!!!
Best Aussie band!!!!

Neil Finn
Just picked up his cd "7 Worlds Collide" (Neil Finn & Friends) today. I must admit, I've never heard of him, but the cd rocks!!!

And this is weird...the opening riff for the song "Down On The Corner" reminds me of one of the tracks in the Achtung Baby outtakes.

Better than Powderfinger and silverchair? hmmm...

I saw Living End perform Sunday Bloody Sunday a few years back which I have to say was rather cool.

silverchair have done more with their sound than the living end and powderfinger put together. i am not a big silverchair fan but they have really come on since their first album and dont seem frightened to push the boundaries.

How about the band Yothu Yindi? They are a band of mostly Aborigines, and they mix traditional instruments with new ones- very good!

I've got that second set of stamps! I don't collect them, but I got them last year when I was a madly obsessed Savage Garden fan. I think they're really pretty. How come we never get any cool stamps like that in the UK?

Two words: Midnight Oil. I'm going to see them in May...very excited. Love their new album, Capricornia.

And Crowded House...Neil Finn is one of the greatest songwriters on the planet today. But I think of them as a NZ band.

The moon is up and over One Tree Hill
We see the sun go down in your eyes
