My uncle once gave me an AC/DC album for my birthday. That was not my favorite gift ever...

So Australia's prime minister named something by Mental As Anything when asked his favourite AC/DC song.

You'd think one of his advisors would've briefed him, but on the other hand I'm glad I'm not in his position. I'd have to answer "the one that sounds like all the other ones".

Malcolm is honestly the most underrated guitarist of all time, in a sense

For a minute I thought you meant Turnbull.

Whilst Malcolm Young's passing was quite saddening, I'm not sure about him (in musical terms) even being close to the best anything really.

I reckon Brian Johnson is a great frontman/rock singer but I wouldn't have the rest of the band as particular standouts. Their drummer plays the same damn beat in every song for crying out loud.

I’m pretty sure Back in Black is the only AC/DC album I have ever owned.

Years ago I walked out of shopping mall and a reporter stuck a camera in my face and asked who I was voting for in some local election.

I was in medical school at the time and had no idea that there even was an election, much less who was running. I think I said as much in response. Thank God it was’t aired.

Courtney Barnett is inescapable in the Australian music press so I decided to give Lotta Sea Lice a spin.

Kurt Vile is unlistenable.

I have gotten to think of Kurt Vile as the less interesting one from (at one time) War on Drugs. That is not a recommendation.

He's a more interesting lyricist than Granduciel, but his sound can get very ... meandering, I suppose.

Yeah this is what turned me away from Lotta Sea Lice. His voice is just too grating for me to get past.

It's like an over-exaggerated parody of Americana.

He's got a shtick for sure but I find it way more palatable than Granduciel/War on Drugs, which can seem so devoid of colour and personality at times.

Kurt Vile has some damn good tunes. Maybe the vocals aren't for everyone, but he can really cast a spell with the guitar.

“Too Hard” is my favourite Kurt Vile song.

Whatever qualities he might have as a guitarist are completely obscured by easily one of the most grating voices I've ever heard. Who the hell thought it was a good idea to let him even go near a mic.

I don't know if Vile's voice is that grating, he just comes off to me like a bargain-store Neil Young. I feel like I'd be better off just investigating Neil Young instead.

I gave him a try when Mofo was all over him, but nope.
