This is the exciting new page about music from Australia and New Zealand. Very lovely places to live I have heard and also the birthplace of some very good music. We have at least a couple of natives on the forum who could provide some valuable insight. Favorite bands, interesting tours/shows/venues/etc. to the land down under. Let's hear it!

I'll start with my favorite Midnight Oil. I especially like 10,9,8,7..., Red Sails in the Sunset, and Diesel and Dust. I've never seen them. I guess Peter Garrett is some kind of politician/government official today.

They're just not good. I love melodic death metal (like DEATH) that you can actually understand the Cookie Monster vocals. That other vocal style is just garbage.

The band took their name from a misheard lyric from the Stooges' song "1970" (the actual lyric is "radio burnin'").
