i love how candid this clip is- just makes me wish I was privy to a recording studio where various artists just drop in from time to time...

Antipodean Underground is a blog dedicated to: "Preserving Australian & New Zealand Underground Music from the 70’s to 90’s"!!!
It's BRIMMING with good quality mp3s of stuff you really can't get easily :-D! :-D!
This post on "A Tribute To the Go-Betweens" was especially exciting...can't wait for my happy ears to get a chance to trawl through this blog :)
I think they are possibly the coolest thing out of Adelaide since Haighs Chocolate hehe ;) Best musical discovery of '08 so far, personally.
Hear a good selection of their stuff here :)

Bob Marley & The Wailers: No Woman, No Cry
"Everything's gonna be alright, Everything's gonna be alright..." ;)
More literal reassurance can be found in THREE LITTLE BIRDS..."Don't worry, about a thing....cos everything little thing's gonna be alright!" hehe ;)

alot of people get straight away that I would like Frente! They just think it makes sense that quirky people like quirk. But actually: I just appreciate creative talent in whatever form it may take ;)
So although Ordinary Angels is definitely "my essence" in a song and thus, my favourite song by Frente! hands down...This one - "Accidentally Kelly St" has got to be their "catchiest" song hands down...and I'll admit, it's pretty daggy (especially the video clip) but you just gotta remember it's dated (I'm sure it was WAY COOL back then LOL)...all good fun! And you gotta love Angie Hart for being different and she definitely has a really unique voice...she's recently gone solo - check out here.

I'm still regretting not ever having seen the Go-Betweens Live when I still had a chance :(
I just always assumed musos 20 years later wouldn't be that good to see- BOY WAS I WRONG!
So glad to see clips on Youtube! Here is a gorgeous version of Clouds with Grant and Robert playing at the Tivoli in 06.
Seems very appropriate as a "Vale, Grant" :( song....
Here are a couple of songs from their 30year span...I cannot believe how underrated this band is...I mean, how often do you get song writing and lyrics like THAT anymore?! Sure the clips may date these songs but how classic and timeless are they in sound yet at the same time strangely nostalgic in feel?
