Talkin' of Australian musicians, I've listened to some Australian bands over the years (Midnight Oil, Hoodoo Gurus, The Saints and more), right now my favourite Australian musician is Hugo Race (here with an Italian backing band, but apparently he's working on a new album with "The True Spirit", his Australian band):
If only I'd thought of the right words...

That's very nice, and we didn't know it!  :)

Here's a very unusual Australian band (with an outrageous American singer):

Believe it or not, I'm certain that I saw The Cruel Sea live in a small club in Ulm years ago!!  :1f62e:
(Must check my concert list, I've no idea when exactly... Edit: it happened on Nov. 18th, 1998!)
From memory, they sounded a bit like the Beasts of Bourbon (a bit "softer"), I do remember the song "Honeymoon is over"!
If only I'd thought of the right words...

SueC

Oh, excellent! :)  Brett says the reason they sound a bit like Beasts of Bourbon is that Tax Perkins is the lead singer of both.  BoB predates The Cruel Sea.  :cool

He's currently listening to:


If any of you saw House, this really goes with the main character, and I'm sure this wasn't lost on Hugh Laurie.  Not all the songs on the album are this naughty - and it's a very well put together album with a lot of mood.

Ulrich, I found this last week, thought you might appreciate it if you haven't already seen it. It's delightful in so many ways :D

Thanks c.o., I did see it right after the show (along with reviews etc.), but it's good to watch again!  :smth023

QuoteAlone with the phone again
The deepening light seeps in my mind
I'm desperate to hear a voice
Can this really be my choice?
I'm fifty and I'm tricky
And I'm sick of being alone...

And it's a cold grey wet December
Shitty shitty day
And I'm waitin' for another friend
Calling long distance again
If only I'd thought of the right words...

"Don't need December when November does the trick..."

If only I'd thought of the right words...

Ulrich

Sadly still "topical" these days...
If only I'd thought of the right words...

This is going to stick out like a sore thumb on a Cure forum, but I really enjoy a lot of things this artist does - and it's to do with the landscape we live in, in Australia, similar to America with its wide open spaces, so this music works in both countries because of the sense of place it conveys.  Here's a little parody I'm listening to a lot at the moment - and I think the video sends up another music video from around that time - anyone want to guess which one?


Another song of the same ilk... and I know at least one person here will appreciate this one:


Seems like you've got to follow that link to watch it, but the link works...

Neil Young does very much know how to make a point.  :)  I appreciate both Young and Mellencamp for actually giving a sh!t, and not shying away from social commentary.
