    i believe the good bands have dried up..
    i don't rate the likes of xx, wild beasts, alt-j etc. but the critics seem to dig it.
    its all to clean cut. music goes in cycles.. and over there is just a sound i can't get behind.
    but.. lets keep this aussie

    But Wild Beasts are rad.

    Tame Impala would comfortably be my favourite Australian band. I dig them immensely.

    Otherwise Nick Cave is my favourite Australian songwriter (Liddiard probably second) and I like a handful of Australian bands.

    I have always had a soft spot for Eddy Current Suppression Ring. I love their DIY sound. I think The Jezebels are pretty cool as well; write cool lyrics and come up with genuinely interesting arrangements.

    The Middle East came up with one impressive Ep then made a mediocre first album and disbanded.

    This Is Your Captain Speaking, Sleepmakeswaves and Laura are all really cool post-rock acts. I've seen all quite a few times and they sound so good in a live setting.

    Bands like Children Collide and British India bore me.

    That will always be the case. I think it has a lot more to do with the music that inspires you during your formative years. For me, that period of the late 80s and early 90s will forever be the golden years. I was in my late teens, early twenties and I look back at some of the gigs at The Old Greek Theatre (Cosmic Psychos, Mudhoney, Seminal Rats, Butthole Surfers), Sarah Sands, Punters Clube etc. as some of the best.
    Now I'm middle-aged, set in my tastes and

    There probably are some good Aussie bands.

    We just don't know because they're not marketable enough.

    Case in point, eMDee from the NT.

    San Cisco makes me sort of hope the Mayans were correct and the world is about to end.

    The only rotation a Go-Betweens record will ever get in my house is as it spins frisbee style across my backyard just prior to it smashing up against the back fence.

    These guys are Aussie:

    They are great.

    Also Boy & Bear:


    But basically if you go on Triple J Unearthed you can find the best Aussie bands. Some are crap but some are very good.

    Plus these guys, The Seekers, were heaps popular in the 1960s both here in Australia and internationally:

    If you listen to Max Crawdaddy's show on RRR every Thursday, he opens with this song every week. 10pm Thursday, Son of Crawdaddy

    The best Aussie band I have seen in ages (actually probably the best live Aussie band since The Powder Monkeys) is Bitter Sweet Kicks. Not sure if Hipster J are playing them though, as that would mean I would have to listen to it.
    Some other great bands doing the rounds I have seen are Vice Grip Pussies, Beat Disease, Valentiine and Mesa Cosa.
