      I recently sent this list of band recommendations to a friend in the States so I thought I'd share it here just in case any one is interested. They're all bands who are currently playing at the moment and are all from Melbourne unless otherwise mentioned. It's by no means a complete list, so please feel free to add to it. Apologies if my descriptions don't do the bands justice. The Ooga Boogas: Garage/surf band who recently played at Goner and who feature Mikey from Eddy Current, Richard from the Onyas, Leon from the Sailors, and Per from (ahem) Cloudberry Jam. The Ooga Boogas Deaf Wish: Complete and utter garage mayhem Deaf Wish The Pink Fits: fast paced bluesy garage from Wollongong. The Pink Fits Beaches: 5 piece all-girl band who play noodly guitar music that reminds me of a cross between Television and a shoe-gaze band. Beaches Shutdown 66: Killer song and killer band. Shutdown 66 The Frowning Clouds: a bunch of 16-18 year olds who love the Pretty Things and the Back from the Grave comps. The Frowning Clouds The Breadmakers: Bluesy garage featuring members of Shutdown 66. The Breadmakers The Stabs: Ben Blackwell said “They sound like Thurston Moore reviewing The Birthday Party”. I agree. The Stabs Chinese Burns: Umm...dunno how to describe them but they're good. And the drummer is awesome in every band that he's in. He hits hard, fast and precisely. Their songs are also very catchy. Chinese Burns UV Race: Again I don't have a clue how to describe them. They're on Aarght, which is a label run by 3 of the Ooga Boogas. UV Race Superwild Horses: Someone I know thinks they're a little bit "cheer-leader-y". I don't necessarily think that's a bad thing. Superwild Horses The following are two bands who wear their Jesus Lizard influence in different ways. Of the two I love True Rad more. My Disco: My Disco True Radical Miracle True Radical Miracle Zond: are good. If I remember correctly, they're at the more experimental end of garage. Zond

      OAK FLATS is near Wollongong but I've been missing from the Illawarra area for some time now. Thanks for the nifty heads up on the Wolly scene! Anyone heard of Tol-Puddle Martyrs ? They've got a great album out called Psych Out U.S.A.

    • Hi All

      Long time no post. I'd like to (re) introduce my band from Canberra - Space Party.

      We've been around for a while (since 2006) and made a coupla CDs doing instro stuff. A few years ago we finally go a full time vocalist so we could do Garage stuff. 

      The result was our latest CD "New Wave", 8 originals, 3 covers

      Have a listen, let me know what you think.

      Any radio DJs / podcasters anywhere, send me an email if you'd like mp3s or CDs for airplay.
