Saints were booked to play here in Cali last year but cancelled, damnit.
I was surprised to see how dynamic and original Birdman was when they (finally) came thru USA. I liked them back in the day but kinda thought they had ripped off their sound from Detroit. boy was I wrong.
Seems to be a lot of Oz bands coming thru here, Eddy Current one of the best. Shutdown 66 were pretty damn good too, but not sure they're still at it.
I could do with hearing a lot more Lime Spiders and Scientists.
everybody knows about the Aussie website, yes? http://www.i94bar.com/
not a lot of pre-70's stuff on there tho.
definitely think the remoteness of the place means we don't get to hear a lot of it.
