  2. Whoops, late again. Wow, not a single Powderfinger entry? ‘Internationalist’ is great, though perhaps would not make my four. Despite it’s populism (and Tiny Daggers aside)’ ‘Kick’ is a great album to turn up loud, get drunk and sing along to. Otherwise as per everyone else it’s The Go-Betweens and NC & TBS all the way until the bleeding bloody cows come home mate.

  3. Interesting: I ended up not voting for any Bad Seeds albums because they just aren’t Australian enough. Not like I’m some arbiter of Aussieness, but BS to me always meant Blixa, too, and Adamson to a lesser extent, so that disqualifies them some in my eyes.

    No votes for Snog, which, had I had another vote, would have made it in.

    1. I know what you mean; even something as concrete as an album of specific nationhood contains variables once you’ve peaked behind the headlines. The Bee Gees especially jumped out of the long-list as “hmmm”, despite formative years spent down under.

      And Snog? Good call.
