    Default Australian Music and Recordings

    A BYOB thread featuring Australian Artists and their Recordings. A covid lockdown project for me, all contributions welcome, as we are confined to quarters for the next six weeks.....

    I'll start off with perhaps the best sounding voice in Australia, that of Jimmy Little and his cover of The Go Between's Cattle and Cain. I will throw a few of my recordings of Oz artists from time to time, this is not one of them;

    I knew the Red Onions almost from the start at the Onion Patch in Elsternwick (I think).
    They developed into something much more sophisticated, but they were always hot!

    Rohan Smith, the piano player, moved to New Orleans and has been making a living as a musician there ever since, though he must be 80 or so by now so maybe he's retired.

    The Australian Voices has some stunning work on record. As the arts and music scene in Aus closed its doors this year they released funding to some members to commission them to compose works for the choir. My youngest was one of those commissioned. The work has been recorded in Brisbane and we are now waiting for the engineering production to be completed. I'll share it here when it's released.

    A friend was supposed to tour with Fiona this year. They did play at least a couple dates in Australia before the virus shut them down.

    Gonna sneak this one in here while Hallam isn't looking- it's not an Aussie song- but it's from one of my favourite Rockwiz episodes and it's my favourite clip featuring the Bull sisters, Linda and Vika, the girls in blue in the clip. They made a great career for themselves as backing singers, particularly for Joe Camilleri and The Black Sorrows, but are now going great guns on their own. Love 'em to bits. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFjReNpCInA JayInOz

    God, look what happens when you go out the back to water the lemon tree!

    Good on you Jay, they are music royalty those two women, and with Peter Luscombe on the drums! Who cares who wrote the song!

    Nattali Rize. Is Australian reggae an inherent contradiction? Or an inevitable outgrowth of colonialism?

    Well, probably more an outcome of globalism than colonialism, but reggae has been popular in Australia for a long time. And there are a lot of Aboriginal bands that include reggae songs in their program - happily so, for those of us who really like reggae!

    HS' photos are great!

    I'm trying to remember who I saw at pubs and concerts, dances etc. as a young fella .... Oh, I did a year at uni with Greedy Smith's brother. Went to see the Emmanuel Bros plenty of times, Men at Work, Sunnyboys, Captain Matchbox, Hush (yes), Rose Tattoo - hated them, still do, Cold Chisel, Midnight Oil, Country Radio (A GTK session at the ABC), Flowers (became Icehouse), Divinyls (of course), Bruce Mathiske ... my high school art teacher was the girlfriend of a musician with great contacts and got her friends to put a band together for our 6th form formal, at the Operas House, no less. The band was Ian Glover, Judy Bailey, Warren Daly, Johnny Nicole and Renee Geyer - pretty amazing really, for an ordinary Sydney high school (Normanhurst). Who else ... umm, Dave Warner, Hoodoo Gurus, seen Richard Tognetti with the ACO a few times, Kerrie Biddel - there'd be plenty of others but those are the ones that spring to mind.
