Default Re: Oz rock!

I stand corrected - Shaddup You Face was UTTERLY tragic :)

Might be time for some hard rock ...

Okay, we already already have ACDC, Midnight Oil, etc but surely Rose Tattoo were known overseas! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wL4DSLd3KZU

When I saw them at the Stagedoor Tavern I was a bit, um, fragile and sitting at a table near the stage ... I can still remember my stomach bouncing up and down with the bass and kick drum. They were LOUD.

Pete Wells was Tatt's slide player and he originally came from Buffalo, arguably, Oz's first metal band http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LHKMH5aL4bE

More recently, we have Grinspoon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p1UB8zvfFXc

On the stadium rock side there's Noiseworks http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5rhqxGk_x4 ... their bassist Steve Balbi came from Rupert B (post #5). Great bass player. I once did a fill in at a songwriting session with some players in his circle. They were about 10x better musos than me so that was a buzz :)

Then there's Regurgitator who were more pop / indie but they could still rock http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A5oC-cickHM

I'd better not mention Wolfmother or MFB will beat me up lol
