Theres thousands of aussie bands anyway.

Most of them are crap, and only do well in Autralia. Other ones are crap and do well overseas (such as Jet).

AC/DC were probably the best though. Some of the local metal bands go off though.

I doubt any of you will remember Pangea though...

I hate The Vines and Jet. And you forgot Silverchair. Not a big fan, but probably one of the best bands Australia has produced.

punk_flamingo
11-13-2004, 05:53 AM
pffft

Silverchairs early stuff was awesome, when Daniel Johns was angsty and produced gnarly music. It got shit towards the end, and his new Dissociatives stuff is even worse.

Frogstomp was probably their best album.

And it seems nobody got who pangaea were. They later became the resindogs, regurgitator among others...none of the original members are in the same band now though.

Their awesome though, nothing like the gurge...alot more punkier. One of the guys came from the same suburb I live in.

yeah silverchair got crap after they started winning the teenybopper awards

JediJoel
11-19-2004, 09:07 PM
yeah its my fault

silverchair are one of my favourite bands

but most tracks of diorama are shit

the vines are good

jet suck, but i thought you might know of em!

Tocchi
11-20-2004, 04:50 PM
i reckon a good band is good because of their music, but also their diversity...

for example: there is this fuckin rad band that has turntables in it (not LP - or even near those cunts), and yeah they use it to maximum effect, they use dub plates and everything, the dude (jay) makes everything himself...and they are aussie...2 8 D

JediJoel
11-22-2004, 03:54 AM
hmmn, as much as i love 28 days, the whole turntable thing was done before they came out or at least until Jedi was a full member of the band

Oversimplified
11-23-2004, 04:50 AM
Did I miss reading it, of has no-one mentioned Powderfinger?...or are they not 'hard-core' enough to be mentioned? Lol.

Surely they rate a mention? Double Allergic and Internationalist are awesome albums.
They've even played Letterman. Haha.

And have Spiderbait come up yet?

my mates an aussie, and he's lendin me a load of cd's,

just borrowed bodyjar - plastic skies

just listening to it now and its pretty cool

punk_flamingo
11-23-2004, 06:05 AM
I despise Powderfinger

infact I hate saying I live 5 minutes away from where they live...I fucking grrr - they suck big time. Such pussies, worse than jet.

The Disables, Japunga, their all fucking gnarly.

Spiderbait was alright - that calypso song sucked though. (its what made them famous though...just like pretty fly with the offspring)

oh Jebediah - they were good when they started

with upstyledown did you get the bonus video [when dickheads snap]? or did you get the bonus cd-rom [live footage - just mini version of WDS]?

i didn't get anything extra... or is it on the cd itself?

Tocchi
12-01-2004, 10:43 PM
nah it was with a bonus disc, but it was aussie release only, or it was with a bonus VHS, again aussie release only

punk_flamingo
12-01-2004, 11:10 PM
^ you can still get it with bonus disc/vhs IF you look hard enough.

JediJoel
12-02-2004, 02:59 AM

Tocchi
12-02-2004, 06:50 AM

Have you ever heard of the butt lust prophecy? In ancient scribes found deep beneath the Black Sea, prophets foretold of the apocalyptic "butt lust" that will destroy all those in its path. The butt lust will rule the planet, and those who do not bow down will be vaporized with it's overpowering stench. Just a warning. ~Heloise HamBone

ive met that chick from killing heidi, i was up a thredbo onetime messing around in the snow, and she was building a snowman. my little brother threw a snowball at her, and she threw one back. i spoke to her and said her music was cool, and she said thanx. i was lying though, ithink her music sucks. but she seemed like a nice person.

the living end, spiderbait, bodyjar, silverchair (pre-Diorama) and some of the older broken up bands like midnight oil and dragon. my mum was actually dragon's manager right up until marc hunter's death.

and is just me, or have You Am I not been mentioned yet???

lol what about The Androids, that band that did that "Do It With Madonna" song. The song "Gone" by them was pretty good

The taste in this thread I would split down the middle, half good and half not. 28 Days however, are absolutely fucking shit.

Hands down, without a doubt the two best bands we've had to offer are The Living End and Midnight Oil. Lotsa great shit has come out of both bands, however unfortunately nothing of TLE's recent stuff has been anything brilliant.

Jet aren't as shit as everyone makes them out to me. They're nothing more then a cover band with their own cheap lyrics, if I was to see them at my local and had no idea who they where I'd like them. Most of you idiots only hate them because they're popular anyway.

Some other good bands include Powderfinger, You Am I, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds and Bodyjar, who I tend to think of as a festival band and nothing more.

The Living End (they rock!)
Grinspoon
AC/DC
John Butler Trio
Tripod (you know, the guys who preform at the end of SkitHouse)
Cold Chisel
Midnight Oil
Cat Empire
The Whitlams (their cool too)
Spiderbait
Killing Heidi
Powderfinger
Jet

Just to name a few there is also alot of good Aussie singers eg...

Missy Higgins
Delta Goodrem (I used to love her!)
Holly Valance
Natalie Imbruglia

They may right mushy love songs but they have great voices (the singers I mean)

Telekinesis

I jus wanted to say that Tripod are awesome! I have two of their albums and they are fucking hilarious! The songs actually called Trees by the way but yeah, sorry for double posting but I really love them! Oh by the way Anthony Callea is gay and Aussie Idol ruined Casey Donovan, she used to be cool, like she liked Heavy Metal, then they turned her into a mushy love song singer.
