    I did a quickie search for a thread on Aussie rock bands down through history, but came up with little or nothing on the matter.
    Since OZ rock had a boost in recent decades, I'd like to see how many peeps here love, know and talk about it. Now, I'm not saying we should go back to Johnny O'Keefe (:):)), but there are loads of artists and bands worth talking about. You will be surprised on the number of pretty good bands from OZ......I WAS :):)!!!!!

    Some OZ rock bands from the past and near past are: The Aztecs, Max Merritt and the Meteors (mixed NZ and OZ members), Hush, Skyhooks, Master's Apprentice, The Easybeats, Radio Birdman, Jo Jo Zep and the Falcons, Baby Animals, Screamin' Jets, etc.

    Was just about to post Kings Of The Sun. Serpentine was a great song.

    I thought those would be obvious mentions from others, although it seems not many folks even know them on this forum. Maybe "older generation" mostly.
    Tatts are still fairly popular in Germany and UK. I guess The Angels (Angel City) never really taken off outside Oz, although had a big impact especially on some American bands.

    Skyhooks, another pretty much underrated OZ band indeed.

    My favourite Aussie rock band of the last few years was Tracer who I thought had it all. Sadly their best stuff is not on youtube. But songs like Now I ride, Voice In The Rain, Sleep By The Fire and Scream In Silence are as good any rock made in this century.

    A word on Mushroom Records: this legendary OZ label did a lot for emerging Aussie bands in the 70s, 80s & 90s.
    Lest we ever forget :)
