πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί Favourite Ever Acts from Australia - The Vote πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Something I’ve been toying with for a while. Each week we pick up to 5 acts from countries/regions outside of UK/USA and see what the Top 10 is.
I will count up in 7 days time. Then we move on to another country.
First up Australia. My list is as follows…

  1. AC/DC
  2. Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds
  3. The Avalanches
  4. Tame Impala
  5. Cut Copy

Would put Kylie and The Church in there with Nick Cave. Maybe Julia Jacklin. The Chats?
Dirty Three as a standalone

INXS
