    What Australian woods are used for building professional instruments? refer to their web sites below - quite a few aussie woods in fact
    Who are the biggest electric and acoustic guitar makers? Maton and Cole Clarke
    Hurry, hurry, oh please hurry, and link us up. Trying
    All this, from a former friend of Pete Traynor when he was a music store employee.

    Cool glad you liked.

    Guy Pearce is aussie- think he started out as a TV actor here, and as you may have discovered know there are australian movies other then Crockadile Dundee type.

    Have not seen the movies you refer to but we do have many salt lakes here in Oz the biggest being Lake Eyre- site of Donald Campbell's world speed record attempt in the 1960's (currently under water- happens once every 20 years or so) and Lake Gairdner- Australian version of Bonnieville for another. See links below:

    Snowy Mountains yes I've been there a couple of times- I'm in Christchurch at present and yesterday was back toward Mt Hutt which I would guess would be even more like Vancouver or even the Rockies. Yes I can remember watch Cheech and Chong at the drive in - in Oz too was always a drivein favourite - Alice restaurant is good movie but never saw it on the big screen here.

    Would have you brought it if Wombat were involved?

    Yea Ned had a big bounty on his head- Killed quite a few police/ troopers before he was captured - some in Oz see him as a sort of Robin Hood type.

    There have been many movies made about him including one with Mick Jagger playing the role



    and even a song by Waylon Jennings!

    wombats action- what more does anyone need!

    Not so sure about the The Wombats - Tokyo (Vampires & Wolves) thou, should change there names to the Wombles, much more suited for an English indie band from Liverpool!- Maybe they could be relocated to Wimbledon.
