How bout spreading the love. Here's a few of my faves from my friends, let's spread the word on good bands we've found. I'm gonna keep my plugs to lesser known acts:

1. http://www.myspace.com/myspacelior. Ok, this guy isn't exactly unknown in Australia, but I dunno if you would have heard much yet overseas. But I DO know that he's doing some U.S dates according to his page so go see him.

2. http://www.myspace.com/thepresidentsbush. A band I know and have done some recording for over the years. Straight up good rock and really cool guys.

3. http://www.myspace.com/wyntagreen. I am totally in love with this chicks voice. She just has demos up, but I know she was doing an e.p or album last time I spoke to her so I'm looking forward to hearing that. She used to work at the coffee shop near the studio, one day she took a guess that I looked like a musician and gave me her demo and I still play it to death.

4. http://www.myspace.com/lynchmadaband. Heavy. I love this band. Some of the vocal tracks on the record were done at mine as well as the pre-pro. They went through hell to get this record together, and luckily it seems to be working out for them seeing as theyre supporting Lamb Of God and shit.

5. http://www.myspace.com/brookesupple. Had a massive crush on this chick when I was 17 or so sneaking into bars to hear her. So did everybody else that heard her. Check out the video too. Awesome live.

6. http://www.myspace.com/irwinthomas69. This guy fucking rules. I'm not the HUGEST fan of his new song up there, but this guy was the guy that inspired me to start singing. Blame him. Fucking awesome if you ever get to hear him acoustic. For those who aren't familiar, he used to play in a band with Virgil Donati back in the day.

7. http://www.myspace.com/thirstymerc. Same story as Lior, pretty big here at home but no idea if you've heard them over there. Love the singers voice. The first record is awesome, the songs on the myspace are their more radio friendly songs, which are still cool but nowhere near the other tracks. I'd say "Someday, Someday" sums up what I dig best out of these 4 songs.

8. http://www.myspace.com/katienoonan. Fucking amazing voice. Used to (maybe still does?) sing in a band called George that was awesome.

9. http://www.myspace.com/thewaifs. About the only time I get remotely near patriotic (I lump any form of nationalism in with people who drink their own pee) is when I hear this band. The accent, the fact that theyve done this on their own terms, I dunno, I just hear it on planes and shit and go all funny. Good stuff.

10. http://www.myspace.com/kwerkshoppe. I got dragged out last Sunday night to see this band in a pub I hate, and I was blown away. Most awesome live band I've heard in ages. Instrumental band.

11. http://www.myspace.com/thelongwhitechicken. A mate of mine who makes such a vast variety of music. A guy who walked 1000km (from here to Sydney) with a guitar just for something to do. A crazy hippy. According to his myspace I'm a band member (A.K.A.) although I don't know if I played on any of these songs, I can't remember. And the drum credit is coz i punched in a snare fill after the drummer bailed.

12. http://www.myspace.com/cardiffg. Awesome band. I went to school with the drummer and bass player. The bass player can and has drunk me under the table before. I've seen her put away more Absinthe than anyone else in the group and after we started vomiting she wanted to keep going. They've only been playing their instruments a couple years ago, this is their first demo which they tracked with me a few months ago. Totally different sound than I've ever been asked to get but it was fun as hell. The track "Steven" is about the owner of the pub I mentioned hating above. He is a total cuntface.

There we go. There's plenty more cool bands on my list. Now lemme hear your own picks.

Yes... with Virgil Donati :Razz:

Count me into the Southern Sons closet admirer's club. A big influence when I was starting to sing (although I was actually more influenced by John Farnham's "comeback" era, to which the Southern Sons stuff is/was often compared).

Hmm, not so much closet now I guess...

yep im with ya there man. i actually had a hip hop customer in last night whs trying to learn to sing and i was trying to help him by showing him little tricks from jack jones (or should i say irwin thomas) and john farnham. at first this guy was like "that shit is ghey"....then i got him to try to sing a couple bars and he got my point
