Michael Butler from Rock and Roll geek Show claims that Australia produces more great rock and roll bands than even the home of R&R ...the USA. I don't know if I totally agree with that statement, but the truth is; they surely have given us some of the great rock bands of our time.
From old school bands like AC/DC, INXS, and Rose Tattoo: to the new generation with bands like The Vines, Jet, and Wolfmother. One band that has remained unknown here in the USA, but has built a huge following in their homeland of Australia has just released their 5th album and the Australian critics are hailing it as their best yet. The band is called 'The Living End" And the album is called "White Noise" It was recorded here in Hobokan New Jersey and was mixed by my favorite producer Brendan O'Brien. This band has been knockin them down for 15 years straight without a break. And why they are not a household name is beyond me. If you like your rock and roll straight ahead, with a great melody, then you'll love this band. Check em' out, I promise, you won't be dissapointed.
