Mix: 16 From Ozstralia

I think Australia has a great, often overlooked history of rock music, which is why I created this mix. It’s of course not conclusive, but it includes a few older tracks and some new.

1. Chinese Burns – “Kiss Fist”
2. Radio Birdman – “Burn My Eye ’78”
3. GOD – “My Pal”
4. Royal Headache – “Girls”
5. The Easybeats – “River Deep, Mountain High”
6. The Twerps – “She Didn’t Know”
7. The Go-Betweens – “Karen”
8. Hoodoo Gurus – “I Want You Back”
9. Super Wild Horses – “Lock and Key”
10. Boomgates – “Layman’s Terms”
11. Eddy Current Suppression Ring – “Which Way to Go”
12. X (Australia) – “Turn My Head”
13. The Celibate Rifles – “Killing Time”
14. Total Control – “Meds II”
15. The Scientists – “Swampland”
16. The Birthday Party – “Deep in the Woods”

Bonus: For a good look at some wild ’60s Australian garage rock, dig into an Ugly Things comp.

  • Awesome mix. I love, love The Scientist, The Birthday Party and Radio Birdman…and The Lime Spiders should have an honorable mention. Great mix.
