thank God for the interwebz and the E! Channel. and thank God for 80's people (friend) who recognise the INXS / Jimmy Barnes connection.
Good grief - those Utah Mormon sisters rocked! lol

And The Easybeats's Friday on My Mind was covered by David Bowie.

But it wasn't all commercial. Never forget the first time I heard Mackenzie Theory on TV ... yes, they used to put music like this on TV once ... the band included the talented Cleis Pearce on viola. She later on formed an amazing band called The Magic Pudding which I saw a couple of lines. I'll never forget the way she introduced one of the songs ... "This song is dedicated to the clouds ... because they are so wonderful". Cracked us up :)

But she can play like a demon:
