I doubt OS members would know of these groups ... except Unfunky who seems to have the world's music at his fingertips :)
Remember when they changed their name to The Rads when punk came in? lol
Another band of similar vintage - The Reels - with Dave Mason on vocals, who was the son of a conservative politician (and perhaps a great disappointment for a while :). Iloved Quasimodo's Dream http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiWifFP20z4
They used to practice in one of the rooms in a warehouse in Redfern, where my band used to practice. One time we blundered into their room. I admit having a go on the drummer's quirky kit (being careful to leave it exactly as I found it!) - great sounding drums.
Thanks! Always enjoyed Oz rock - it has its own flavour ... but I suspect that those last two links will attract people to Oz rock in the same way as Qantas CEO, Alan Joyce, is promoting tourism :)
i like the sonic sound of the Sports record very much.
