Alright, time for some discussion on what yr all listening too. My iTunes inventory is getting a little stale so I'm up for some inspiration.

Currently loving The Drones' album "Havilah".. incredible songwriting and some of the best recorded guitars and drum I've heard in a long time. I'm a little late to the party with this album but it's on high rotation at the moment and will probably stay there a while. I've seen these guys live once (Fowlers, Adelaide) and fortunately they're incredible on stage too. Can't wait to see them again.

For mine, you can't listen to Friday's Blue Cheer... and say Ed Kuepper is over-rated.

It's a little 8 minute journey.

Or the hypnotic Honey Steel's Gold.

Or the beautiful and uplifting Black Ticket Day.

I think that's definitely one of his strengths, he has some real range in his style/s.

Hah! We had a signed and personal messaged tea towel from Mr Kuepper mounted on the wall. The misso was stoked!

As an aside, how is the tea towel merch? Uniquely Strayan (that's the shtick)? And cleverly appealing to the fairer sex (blokes go the teeos)?

Nick Cave one in Blighty. Not signed but misso still stoked.

And another signed and messaged one from Steve Kilbey not mounted (as yet).

Actually, his gig was another revelation of sorts. Certainly not jangly by any means!

Old blokes raging against the dying of the light.

Gotta dig it.

Yes Andy. I in fact don't mind some of Ed's stuff. The last time I saw him play live he was in the Bad Seeds. For the first song of the gig he slung on a beautiful guitar and then didn't touch it for the whole track.
RocknRoll gold.

As far as the overrated calls, I'm just being smartarse because I'm a sarcastic belligerent music snob.
The Ramones tho, I did enjoy them live but I am still sticking with that call.

I'd go as far as ed kuepper is australia's best music talent ever, his career from start to finish, I can barely name a song, but he's always been in there in the background. subliminally significant, saw him on sunny coast early 90s, essentially a front bar gig, very nice...

gotta agree fugazi up there with best ever. fucking hard core as anything at the time - without going down that ridiculous hard core road that was also unfolding at the same time... (which was still good, ...well some of it...) everything else was going faster harder, fugazi mastered the stop, and slow down, and yet were still as hard as anyone

saw them around same time, good gig, no mosh, the nirvana kids looked confused

Big call sypkan, we've produced plenty of top-tier talent...
Tommy Emmanuel?
James and John Morrison?
Don Burrows?
Hard to compare accross genres of course, but in terms of shear musicality...

@velocityjohnno "Did any of you get to see these guys live?

Would have been a mad gig"

wow...that is a wild gig.
I saw TISM play at the graphic arts club or teachers union. they were wearing hessian sacks over there heads and had signs on top saying "john", "paul", "george", "ringo". there were two johns. i think the sacks over their heads made for a more subdued performance.

and for australia's best...these guys should be near the top of the list...the black diamonds

Stoked you got to see them Chook! Perth felt a world away from Melbourne in early 90's when still at school, but I note that gig was 2003 or so so techically we could have arranged a babysitter for the kids then gone and trashed a venue seeing TISM...

Yes Mattlock, Kuepper in the Seeds! Reminded me that I saw that tour. And I think Barry Adamson was back in the fold as well?

And Kill Devil Hills go alright.

Speaking of devils, here's a colleagues band, sadly no more. Killer clip. Using footage from cult underground Aussie bikie/horror flick, Cosy Cool. The Comancheros feature. Before their divisive civil war and the subsequent Milperra Massacre.

Barry A was there D-C. Nick and the Seeds blew the roof off the Thebby that show. Two encores. Second one Nick came out in a t-shirt and Warren had already changed his suit, they then played an awesome version of Push The Sky away to bring the crowd down.
True professionals.

Oh yeah H2O and Pops. Rory Gallagher was an awesome guitar player, showman and a true gentleman. Check out his bio vid Edged In Blue.
Luckily I got to see him play too. Ranks as one my all time best gigs attended.

Just want to say this 'Tunes' thread has been awesome lately , and thx to everyone
After recently going through a dusty ole box in a cupboard , I found and fired up an old storage device that unknown to me had Napster files from years ago.
The storage device is an old jvc camera I connected to the pc to get the videos/pics off many moons ago . Somehow , accidentally , I've uploaded the music files to it The old pc is long gone and was never backed up.
Too much old school stuff to list , And I nearly threw it out.

Saw TISM live at the Mentone Hotel in the late 80's. Possibly the best gig I have been to in terms of the overall "show"; tight musically, catchy amusing tunes and completely whacked out performance art in a packed room full of energy. They knew how to entertain.

ahh, the Gimme Gimme's. Funny story, I saw them in Honolulu back in 2000, was killing time in a record shop on my last day of the trip and found a small flyer noting they were playing that night. So off I went, it was a tiny bar and it was packed, big time, hardly any space to move and they soon closed the doors. The gig gets underway and things are getting a bit wild with stage diving and mosh pit movements starting to knock things over. The bar owner/manager? gets up on stage asking everyone to calm down, no-one really takes any notice, the band dont give a shit and actually incite a bit more chaos. Bar owner/manager gets up again and threatens to shut it down, nothing much changes and then suddenly the power is off. Crowd not happy, and then a shit load of cops with helmets and batons enter the premises and 'officially' shut it down. I managed to avoid any carnage, escaped to the toilets for a while, then emerge to find the place largely empty, all cops gone and the band at the bar. So I joined them for a decent piss-up. That Spike guy was pretty crazy, I understand some shrooms had been consumed, Fat Mike was a laugh. Anyway, even though the gig itself was fairly short, it was a good night in the end.
