i was fully listening to fortress last night, probably around the time you posted this



i was singing along but saying 'i am commie scum'
and 'i hate nazi scum' (sorry dazza m80)
if i was in a band i totally wanna cover this but make it an anti-fascist song.

but i like it how it is too

Arguably the best Aussie song as well. Also somehow topical.

Sorry, can't figure out how to embed the video from my phone.

That's a tough one. Probably the latter.

You're all amateurs, this album by these Adelaide legends is fuckin choice. The song 'So I say Goodbye' is so working class it makes Jimmy Barnes look like a factory owner

None of these bands are included in the aforementioned options.

Always wanted to like the Hard Ons but they never managed to set the world on fire as a live act. Getting their asses blown off the stage by Dead Moon didn't help but there's always been something missing. My favourite Aussie band would probably be AC/DC in all honesty.

Its definately Thatchers Snatch. Although, their sound is so legitimately uk82 that it is argued that they actually hail from Yorkshire
