    I am not saying it is right to just forget about serious crimes but arresting some old man who may not even be sure what day of the week it is, and questioning him about events of forty years ago does seem a bit pointless. Sexism as we know it today did not exist at that time and where as I fully believer that anyone who abuses children should be shot I know from my own experiences that things were very different in those days.

    Thats a bit stronger than the sort of groping behing the filing cabinets that I was thinking of John. Thats the time a man buys himself a glock and says - I dont care what happens to me, they are not going to do that to anyone else.

    Cool, of the list well known established acts here in Oz are:

    Ben Lee, Eskimo Joe, and the Avalanches.

    Of the others I would make the following comments:
    Isn't Evan Dando from an old US act The Lemonheads - wouldn't call him Aussie!
    New Buffola is Sally Seltmann not widely known here in Oz, would be much better known in Canada I would say for her work with Feist.
    Rocket Science - never heard of them.
    BrisVegas group Sekiden - had to Google them, never heard of them but I left Brisbane about 5 years ago. My Sons band - "This Modern Theory" and came second in the local Brissy battle of the bands and were associated with the Butterfly Effect but that is old history now.

    Cut Copy- have heard of them and think they have had some success but not a big name.
    the beta band- not Aussie a UK musical group
    agaugefor - dont know much about this band - Frenzal Romb is much more well known here.

    Unhappy In Memoriam

    Christina Amphlett- 25/10/1959-21/4/2013.

    So I HAVE to mention DiVinyls.

    I'm touched by your sentiment. My two favourite Divinlys songs are Science Fiction (which was there first single) and Boys in Town.
    But seriously, Chrissy's death was big news here in Oz, she was our biggest female rock star and many female acts here have followed her style. Sad news indeed and sadly missed.

    I would have thought the DiVinyls were from L.A. after all that MTV programming.
    It's nice to know they're uh, still in rotation.

    Somebody's got to break the log jam in the survey.
    Who will it be?
    Good to know this thread is doing something for knowledge of Oz rock - Chrissie and Divinyls very Aussie formed in Sydney in 1980, with Chrissy being from Geelong near Melbourne.

    Damn MTV good for rock careers but makes all acts seem like they come from LA.

    Now some acts like Air Supply and Little River Band- let's just say they came from LA!

    Hi John glad you like Aussie Rock - yea Air Supply and Little River Band I should not diss, both bands contained key players over along periods in the Oz rock scene.

    "Love is in the Air" however, was not an Air Supply song but was John Paul Young written and produced interestly, by George Young (Angus and Malcolms older brother AC/DC) and Harry Vanda of EasyBeats fame.

    The actor your referring too is Hugo Weaving of Matrix and Priscilla Queen of the Desert - all moments are good John

    guano now thats a but beow the belt - Goanna as well as being a large Oz lizzard is the name of a big 1980 Aussie rock band. Refer to the early posts here for one of their videos "Solid Rock".

    Depends on the species of Kangaroo they range from small like Rock Walabies to the Red Kangaroo (Macropus rufus) is the largest of all the present species of marsupials (they are not mammals) in Asutralia and live in Central Australia (the desert regions). Reds are the big ones and can grow typically up to 5.2 ft (1.6m) and weigh about 190 lb (85kg). The largest confirmed one having been around 2.1 m (6.9 ft) tall and weighed 91 kg (200 lb).
    Big enough to take on the fattest politician!!!!
