Jack ... love your Sunday night Aussie rock posts. I rarely watch the telly, but notice that there is a show on the SBS TV Channel in Australia this coming Saturday evening at 8.30pm called Great Australian Albums: Born Sandy Devotional by the Triffids. I cannot remember if you had the Triffids on your blog here, but they had some great songs.

I think you've beaten SBS on Great Australian Albums, or at least in the highlighting of great Aussie bands.

Keep up the great blogging.
