I truly did miss something then, when I saw them a month back, they came on at midnight and were off by 1am, their mix was way too loud so they constantly sounded distorted- the only time you could hear their harmony was if you put your fingers in your ears, they had zero personality and they looked quite un-impressed the whole time as they played to a sold out venue.....hmmmm now, what did I miss

They're way too derivative, but I don't change the station when they come on.

Way to set up a false dichotomy, guys! Sure, bands are either pastiching an existing framework (for your entertainment?) or are experimenting and making awful music (really?). I don't believe it for a second.

As some of you might know, I've had this discussion on other forums, and it always ends in tears, so I won't harp on it this time.

I'm sorry but in my book, 'ok' isn't good enough. Lots of bands are ok, but if I were to spend a cent on one, they'd have to be a lot better than ok. I daresay, a band would have to shake my world before I'd be very interested.

Here are some other Australian bands you should try listening to before you give Jet the time of day:

The Sleepy Jackson
Love outside Andromeda
The Herd
Powderfinger (grudgingly)
Augie March
Rocket Science
Magic Dirt

Avoid bandwagon bands, guys. They will only stunt your musical growth and that doesn't do anybody any good.

Oh and btw, Jet suck ass so bad that I can't even begin to express the rage they inspire in me. Shit music for a dark, dark age.

Oh yes, John Farnham. Well I'm not a patented Aussie Battler for Howard (TM), so I might have to pass on The Voice.

Also I forgot another up and coming Australian talent that you will probably hate if 'experimental' is a bad thing. His name is Ross Mclelland (or Mclennan, not sure which) and his music is an interesting and emotive thing, at least to my ears. All descending basslines and moody saxophone, I love it.

Some more Australian bands you should listen to before letting the word 'Jet' so much as pass through your consciousness:

The Underground Lovers
The Go-Betweens
Little Birdie
Machine Translations

I like the Sleepy Jackson a lot. I've been meaning to check out Augie March but I'm a bit too lazy to.

I'd list stuff like Crowded House and Nick Cave for 'favourite Austral(as)ian acts', but I think you're talking about the current scene which I'm not very familiar with.

Unless you want to discuss the merits of Bardot over Guy Sebastian or something.

Sounds like Powderfinger's first round of live shows.

Actually in my view very few bands can cut it live. To some extent I am ok with that as long as they're honest about it. I can appreciated studio recordings as good work in their own right.

The Sleepy Jackson are a case in point. They can't carry their own material live. But I still like them a lot.

That Jet show was very good, these guys know how to make people have a good time and they "connected" with the crowd since the beginning. It was a bit short though, but they only have one album, and they played some b-sides too. I you like the record, you'll like the performance.

Yes, they played loud, but that's the way they played in the cd, so that's ok for me.

btw, they like to meet the fans after the show, so you can have pics with them, they sign the cd for you, you can talk to them too and that's very cool. How many bands do that?

Anyway, that's just my opinion, I respect everyone's taste in music.

I saw Dave Graney play in a pub once. He hung around watching the football on TV for hours before his show, and signed a bunch of CDs afterward. He seemed like a smart and funny guy, quite pleasant to meet as well. But, you know, I still wouldn't claim it was the best show I ever saw.
