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.

Could take the great shames and disgraces and turn them into celebrations.

Known for lyricism but also knew a bit about rhythm and melody too.

Earlier Abbe. Either way she has got a great voice

Most defiantly seeds, I think she got frustrated with it though, maybe it was too easy for her or she didn't want it to be the only road she travelled. She ripped when I saw her live with the band a few times. I stumbled across her by accident and was glad I did. Hopefully she's still jamming and making music whatever and wherever it is. She had a good attitude all the way for from the bands to the fans. Didn't play it safe either in regards taking the unknown road.

Rob, thanks for highlighting Archie Roach and some of his thoughtful heartfelt tunes, Australia just lost a good one.

few crew put some up, defiantly note worthy. I kinda didn't know wether I should but felt the public news and others had broken the ice. Bit of a figure head moment considering what has been evolving of late.

How about some old school British metal. Never tire of this. (Audio as no good old footage)


This one dodgy old film clip which we loved in early nineties acid parties

Thanks for the Go Betweens Rob. One of my all time favourites. Here's another one of theirs I really like. Unique melodies and instrumentation.

....and if you like Go Betweens, have a listen to these guys from Melbourne. Sadly not together anymore.

I tend to get stuck in genre's for a while. Here's another Melbourne band from the so called "jangle pop" sound.

Good stuff crew always interesting, watched a little go betweens doco on telly the other night. When I was younger I didn't appreciate their song writing enough, It kind of lined up with a few of the forum threads of late title wise that Ive been reading and enjoying. Probably been thrashing the surf instrumentals on here but I find them relaxing. Judas still ruling. Makes me laugh too. Especially when I'm talking a leg off a chair on swellnet's hot topics or trying to squeeze a surf or swim. Keep them flowing.

‘99 spent a couple of weeks in the Republic. 3 weekends I stayed in Waterford with friends while I travelled through the week while they were at work. Epic fun. Saw this band. Waterford’s own. The lads spoke of them with reverence.

One of my favorite DJ's to dance to, Made friends with this DJ one night in 2005 or 2006 and i had a backpack on for my jacket and spare undies. He thought it was full of pingers and introduced me to all his temporary girlfriends (he had like 7)and i got access in the VIP booth. Good times.

What’s all this rubbish about dancing?

If you’re an Aussie bloke of any worth you should really be leaning against a wall up the back, feet planted firmly on the ground with perhaps a head bob to the beat as long as you don’t spill your beer. No moving till the last song before the lights come on which indicates it’s time to locate a root.

Haha dsds, i used to enjoy bustin a move to the right music, started off break dancing then got into raving(90's) and shuffling..i was offered a few jobs teaching people to dance or one add and my friends said i danced better than i surfed. I was one of the original Melbourne Shufflers, when a couple of traveller clubbers taught me.I wasnt as talented as my euro buddy though.
Pulled the ladies.Only problem was i couldnt find a room to go back to in the big smoke, had to travel 50 minutes to my mums house on the train.
Fell asleep going home many times and woke up on monday morning after the train had gone from bondi to cronulla about 6 times each way surrounded by people in suits..lol.

Right, I'm going to whack this up just cos I like lists.

This is a rough desert island albums list.
Top ten in no particular order.
A desert island list is quite different to a "best of all time" list - they might not be the ultimate but they cover an array of moods and situations.
Here goes.

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
Stone Roses - Stone Roses
Allman Brothers - At Fillmore East
Bruce Springsteen - The Wild, the Innocent and the E-Street Shuffle
The Church - either Heyday or The Blurred Crusade
AC/DC - Powerage
The Orb - Adventures Beyond the Ultraworld
Led Zeppelin - Physical Graffiti
INXS - Shabooh Shoobah
Dire Straits - Dire Straits
Public Enemy - It Takes a Nation of Millions
Rolling Stones - Sticky Fingers
The Smiths - The Queen is Dead
Cold Chisel - East
Go Betweens - 16 Lovers Lane
Redgum - Caught in the Act

Ok, the top ten quickly blew out to top 16, so much for concision.
Maybe the only thing missing is some really good, driving, dirty progressive house for when you find that stash of gold tops somewhere on the island.

Also, it was real hard to leave out The Avalanches.
Actually, I think I'll include it.
A brilliant concept album.

Haha! Not a reflection of your song choices by any stretch blackers but just a very average play on your words "It's Friday agin" by me :-)
