    No need, it was merely an honest misunderstanding.

    Airborne are cool and all but a newer band trying to resurrect the golden era of AC/DC doesn't really make me proud to be Australian, they're just worshipping AC/DC without really bringing anything new to the table.

    Sadistik Exekution will always make me swell with Australian pride though.

    Airborne have done alright with the "Lemmy worship" thing. Getting use of the Bomber lighting rig would no doubt have been a huge thrill for them, and now Phil Campbell's band is supporting them.

    But you're right about Sadistik Exekution. I see more Aussie in Airborne than I do in AC/DC but there is more Aussie in plenty of other bands. Dead Kelly almost come off as a bunch of bogan death metallers but they also come off as Aussies.

    Lemmy worship?

    Since they toured with Motorhead they have pretty much made no secret how much they love and respect Lemmy and his music. They have done numerous dedications to him and/or Motorhead and their last single was written about Lemmy which is why the got the Bomber rig that Motorhead have been using for a hundred years. I'm not sure they knelt to pictures of Lemmy and prayed but sometimes it kind of sounded like it.

    Oh okay, so it's not so much about how they sound?

    Nah, they definitely sound more like Aussie pub than they do Motorhead

    Well this has been an interesting discussion to come back to read. Give me some warning next time so I can prepare some popcorn. :)

    My point wasn't so much Airbourne's innate quality, as it was that you had a band so true to the rock and roll spirit kicking and fighting for it so vigorously in this day and age.

    Going through and listening to all of my AC/DC albums, which just so happens to be all of them. God bless Malcolm Young, soul, balls, and metronome tight rhythm, all while writing dozens of rock's greatest riffs and playing them louder than an atom bomb. You were an honest to God unsung heavyweight champ of rock guitar, and you will be missed. You chain-smoking, hard rocking motherfucker, there's a Gretsch Firebird with it's pickups gutted waiting for you at the pearly gates hooked to a humming Marshall stack.

    Malcolm had a huge impact on rock music. Massive. It's a real shame how it all ended up for him in the last few years. May he RIP.

    One of the best Aussie bands I saw live last year was Hobo Magic. Heaps of fun:

    They sound decent. Will try to check them out if they ever play nearby.

    I saw Psycroptic a couple of nights ago for the first time in 15 years. They're one of the better known Australian bands, but somehow I didn't see them in the intervening period.

    Not necessarily favourites, but after a certain amount of time it's inevitable that New Zealanders I've seen play in bands here have migrated to Melbourne and started/joined bands there, although they're mostly on the punk side of things:

    Asbestosisis



    Blockade



    Tactical Attack



    Nö Class



    Steed



    Thatcher's Snatch

    Haha Thatcher's Snatch - what a name.

    Interesting that NZ folk move to Melbourne. The Australian music scene is really good, though still limited in terms of its financial prospects unless you're the next Powderfinger.

    Other bands that i have been getting into lately include
    Bonespur - awesome hard rock featuring members of Black Label and Heaven
    Flickertail - guitar rock n roll inspired by Thin Lizzy
    Black Aces - original hard rock heavily influenced by early AC/DC
    The Mis-Made - all girl punk featuring Jess from 90's all girl punk band Nitocris
    Avalanche - only seen them play once but incredible live performance influenced by AC/DC and Airbourne
    Rose Carleo Band - awesome blues/rock
    Rags n Riches - 90's glam/sleaze rock band who made a comeback a few years ago

    I remember seeing them live back in the day and Jim Yannieh their drummer at the time played a song or two on Dungeon's EP.
