Since everyone was all up in arms about me saying that Savage Garden were the best band to come out of Brisbane, an opinion I hold truly madly deeply.
The Go-Betweens goes without saying, there’s even a bridge (kinda) named after them here, which considering Brisbane as a whole is pretty impressive. Robert Forster’s son’s band The Goon Sax made a great start with their debut album earlier this year too.
The book Pig City by Andrew Stafford was a great oversight over the city’s history, with some great oversight over The Saints and the police / political tension in the city in decades past.
Fortitude Valley’s pretty spoiled with live music venues, to be fair. It makes the annual Bigsound festival work really well as far as an inner-city-multi-venue-festival goes. It’s a two day thing with multiple venues hosting multiple bands (mostly Australian) with approx 18 venues within 200m of each other.
Anyway, after discovering Kitchen Floor from that other thread, and listening to 4ZZZ too much, this thread is for posting about Brisbane based bands and artists.
