Default Re: Great AM pop tunes

Thanks Ken. It's interesting to know who was known abroad and who wasn't. The Oils and Split Enz were much more edgy (as per the clip and posted and the song you mentioned) before they found mainstream success. Hoodoo Gurus were always boppy and infectious.

A lot of Oz bands became increasingly mainstream in time.

Compare early Hunters and Collectors
