you may have heard of them but The systemaddics are a pretty cool garage punk band from adelaide check them out here http://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Systemaddicts/304405183501
Thanks for the list.. I move to Melbourne in about 6 weeks.. Can anyone recommend venues where I can catch garage / lo fi artists?
How about Asteroid B-612 , The Beasts Of Bourbon,Bored! and The Stems all great powerful kick ass garage .
Favourite oz band at the moment are The Gooch Palms from Sydney - they're like Lux n Ivy's awkward bastard children.
There's a really solid album recently released called New Centre of the Universe from Anti Fade records..features a bunch of Geelong/Melbourne based bands..such as The Bonniwells, Bad Aches, Living Eyes, Ausmuteants and so forth.
Loving Bad Aches atm, one of the better Melbourne bands..recently seen bits of shit for the 3rd time and as always...really great stuff.
Get on board.
