      I've just found this; been for a wander through it and don't see a mention of either the Saints or Radio Birdman....?

       

      Some good compilations (available in the UK, at least) - Do The Pop!, Tales From the Australian Underground 1976 - 1989, Can't Stop It! (Post-punk). Plenty Lime Spiders, Birdman, Scientists available too - also Where Are All The Single Girls? by the Eastern Dark.

      They were in the initial topic. Howabout individiual songs like By My Side by the Elois or Come On by the Atlantics. I've never had the chance tohear them but there's the Ugly Things comps from down under as well. Johnny Danger said:

      No one has mentioned the Stems? Weird. They're definitely one of the best! You should also seek out: The Ooga Boogas, The Dirty Lovers, The Pink Fits, The Sailors, Shutdown 66, Onyas, Digger & the Pussycats, The Crusaders, The Booby Traps, Lords of Gravity, Cosmic Psychos, the Stoneage Hearts, Feedtime, and for '60s stuff, you can't beat the Missing Links (great collection on Half a Cow Records). I'd also recommend checking out the Eddy Current Suppression Ring. And pretty much anything on Dropkick or Off the Hip Records.

      Los Hories from New Zealand are great, too.

      Billy Thorpe and The Aztecs , how could I forget ! A lot of Americans don't know Thorpe was huge in Australia , going from Garage /R'N'B TO ACTUALLY DECENT BOOGIE ROCK to brief popularity in the states with effects - laden psuedo - Psychedelic FM Rock in the Late 70'S.

      i could come up with some more , if I looked at some comps........Great songs, but the names escape me.
