List of Aussie bands

As I’m not able to blog about every single band I’m listening to this list is another way to promote these Australian bands. Although it is a list of Australian bands, I’ve shifted the attention from the more popular Australian bands and  focused on the under appreciated.

This list may also serve as a directory as I’ll endeavour to add Myspace, Facebook, Twitter and Triple J Unearthed links. (edit: I’ve also created a twitter list – aussie bands)

Please note: As this list was originally started in 2009, so links may no longer be relevant.

  1. Wow! What a list. It would take a long time to listen to all of these. I just heard of a band called Grand Atlantic from Brisbane, Queensland, that I really like a lot.

    FOJP

    Bob

  2. i have a mate that manages a band called Enacio from the Gold Coast. i havent seen them live, but like what i have heard on Myspace….perhaps u might like to check them out. i wont say ‘when u have a spare moment’ cos i know u never do!! lol. see you soon x

  3. I can’t help but feel including me on the SA list dilutes the quality a little, but thanks.

    The Keepsakes and Bing Goes to Monaco are another pair of absolutely brilliant SA bands, you should check them out.

  4. Hi,

    Thanks for including me on your blog.

    And you spelt my name correctly, so super mad props to you! Almost everyone gets it wrong.

    Apparently I don’t even know how to spell it – I picked up a newspaper and saw a review of one of my shows in there and I said “Awesome! They actually spelt my name right!”. Later that night someone else read it and said “Lets have a look, did they spell your name right? Nope.” I misread my own name.

    I also have Twitter, it’s mostly personal ‘tweets’ but I do put shows on there also.

    Thanks,
    Amanda Merdzan
