« on: February 26, 2009, 11:49:27 AM »
Anyone closet Empire of the Sun fans? I really enjoy the sci fi novel look and the music is great. The youtube video is pretty fun also. I was curious, Deepspace, are these guys popular in Australia?

Yes, they are very big right now- everybody seems to love them.  The singer has been a bit of a critical darling here for a while- and his previous band The Sleepy Jackson, was also quite influential.  But they've really hit on an interesting feel this time, and are now breaking internationally.

Yes, they're another fairly influential Australian band, who went on to influence later australian bands such as Custard.  They were never really my cup of tea, but they did write 'women in uniform' which as you will probably know Wayne, was covered by Iron Maiden.  A very unusual choice for maiden, I always felt.
