    As Gelman said, the blues is gun, I personally like most of the sinks I have heard from that album, I first heard some of them 7 years ago though so it will be a bit strange listening to them as "new" songs. Saw this version of GNR in 02 as well, agree that it's not real GNR, but Axl is such a frontman live, there's noone better

    WRT Imagine, I think you're right to some extent. Repetition has paled it quite a lot, but whenever I hear it I can't help but think that if John had've known it'd be so ubiquitous he'd have spent a bit longer on the lyrics. He couples "try" with "sky", "do" with "too" & "can" with "man"; you can almost hear the rhyming dictionary being turned.
    Not a fan of Imagine's lyrics myself, too Marxist for my liking mind you

    As for McCartney staying close to his roots, I wouldn't have said East Sussex was that close tbh.
    LOL, what I meant about Macca is that you always see him up here, comes and plays concerts in Liverpool and most importantly still has the same accent that he had 40 years ago

    Here's one for our antipodean musos: what's happened to all the Aussie bands? In the 80s you produced some genuinely great bands: The Triffids, The Go-Betweens, The Church, Crowded House (kinda... ) with obviously Sir Nicholas's boys active too.

    Since then: very little. Or very little that's made an impact up here. I don't mind Jet, but wouldn't dream of mentioning them in the same breath as the others. Even Wolfmother (not my cuppa char, tbh, but I at least knew who they were) have given it away now. Where have all the Aussies gone, people?!

    Yeah it's quite bare, Augie March are great but can't think of anyone else of note at the moment. On the songwriting front, I read this article a couple weeks back - link

    You mean good or popular? There are quite a few popular Aussie bands around.

    Aussie music scene is tough to make a go of if you don't play pub rock or rock of some sort. As someone in a fusion-type band, I can relate! Wasn't entirely upset when Wolfmother folded, though.

    Interesting read, thanks. McLennan sounds interesting; comparisons to Scott Walker & Brian Wilson are high-praise indeed. Will have to check him out.

    Ha, the former, definitely.

    I mean, obviously I'm aware of your Silverchairs, your Grinspoons & your Savage Gardens and I'm sure they keep kept their record companies' accountants very happy, but peuuw.

    I'm a huge fan. I hate NME though. In fact, i hate all music critics. They're physically not capable of writing an article with no bull**** in it.
