I'm not the biggest fan of the Aussie band "The Venetians", but they did strike gold with their 1988 song "Bitter Tears". One of my favorite Aussie songs ever.

Never heard of it before, but that's a pretty nice very typical Aussie kind of 80's tune. Nice.

Thanks for posting the clip mate.

I've got to figure out how to do that myself.

Everyone knows my favorite Aussie release of any type ever, HUNTER DREAMS OF ORDINARY MEN!! I just think they got a raw deal on that album and it couldve\shouldve been huge, Im talking up there with bands like The Firm, Genesis, Steve Winwood, Eddie Money, and all the other top of the charts Rock\Pop albums of 1987, theres no reason after my 1st listen to that cd which sadly didnt even occur until 2007, that it was not only unnoticed, but seemingly ignored, there were some hits on that disc, and the only reason they werent at least here in the US, has to be that the album was never promoted after it's release, cause Rundgren made sure that fucker was radio ready when it was finished. so theres my all time favorite Aussie release, I also like Roxus, at least the song My Way which we played as a single back in the early 90's at the station I jocked at, but failed to ever produce the interest I was sure it would, I am also a fan of course of The Outfield, but Bengal Tigers I always thought could have some potential as far as the Acdc rip off groups that endlessly came out of Aus, we also played The Poor, thats a rocking song, but that album fucking blows,

Interesting. I didn't know the classic Aussie/NZ band "Dragon" were known as "Hunter" overseas.

Yeah AMONG THIEVES are a bit like a poor-mans INXS, but - with all due respect - you're getting into the ordinary stuff if you try & do more than a Top 5 of Aussie albums. :lol:

 

Among Thieves sounds like some good wimpy AOR, I like :) 

Faith in Love

    • I'll give you one example. Tax cuts. Everyone loves tax cuts right?? and according to Trump every American got a tax cut in 2017.....but here are the facts - According to estimates from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, while most Americans will benefit at least somewhat, the top fifth of earners get 70 percent of the bill’s benefits, and the top 1 percent get 34 percent. The new tax treatment for “pass-through” entities — companies organized as sole proprietorships, partnerships, LLCs, or S corporations — will mean an estimated $17 billion in tax savings for millionaires in 2018   Sorry that's just wrong. And this will add over $1 trillion to national debt. Tax cuts for people expire in 2025/6 while corporation is permanent. Hello austerity measures. Trust me that ain't fun as the UK has found out for the last few years after Labour almost bankrupted our country. 
    • by intelligent he means looking into things beyond the basic stats and lies which are generally used to gloss / cover up what resides beneath And yes Nordic Union will receive no more spins from me. Besides being one paced and generally dull the songs aren't helped by Atkins straining throughout. 
    • I like the song, country vibe or whatever it is. Agree with comments that it wasn't what I expected when I saw the pic. It kinda looks like 3 band members, and they didn't like the look of the 3 of them together, so they asked a sound mixer to stand in the background lol
    • And by intelligent I'm assuming you mean people that follow what's trending in hip circles without looking into things for themselves?  I'm Australian and give very, very little shit about US politics. But I still listen to things and I don't think Russ is alone in his opinion that Obama was a very poor president and that, whether you agree with his politics or not, Trump actioned more stuff in one month than Obama did in years?  Nordic Union album still sucks balls. 
    • Very different to what their image suggests. Lose the country vibe and they're onto something. Not bad at all. 
    • Acoustic rocker( I wouldn't say "Country"). I like it  
    • On first listen through, this album is "meh".  Lots of songs that sound very similar and nothing that sounds particularly inspired.  
    • just heard another snippet and it sounds identical again. I'll give this a go for sure but this dudes songs all sound the same. it's a bit weird
