The 100 Best Australian Albums from the Author: John O'Donnell. Australian music has a proud, colourful and successful history. In 2008, Australian rock and roll turned 50. This book names the best Australian albums of the last 50 years. It places each album in order (from 1 u 100) and discusses why each album deserves its place. It tells the story behind the making of the album, where the album fits in the artist's career and the album's impact on the local and world stage etc. The entries will feature new interviews with the artists and the producers/managers involved in the recording and the release of the album. It wouldn't be a good list if it didn't polarise people and we hope that this list will. We also hope that it will get people sitting around comparing their favourites and discovering or re-discovering these great albums and others. With 70 years of loving and writing about Australian music between us, we shamelessly believe we've earned the right to write this book. And we think we've got it right. Let the debate begin.o u John O'Donnell, April 2010 Finally, here is a much-needed list of argument-starting top 100 seminal/ influential/essential Australian albums of all time. Let the fight begin!

Noise In My Head from the Author: James Kritzler. The Ugly Australian Underground documents the music, song writing, aesthetics, lives and struggles of 50 of Australia's most innovative and creatively significant bands and artists at the creative peak of their careers. The book provides a rare insight into the most 'happening' cult music scenes in Australia. The author, Jimi Kritzler is both a journalist and a musician and is personally connected to the musicians he interviews through his own involvement in this music sub culture. The interviews are extremely personal and reveal much more than any interview granted to street press or blogs. The interviews deal with not only the music and song writing processes of each band but in some circumstances their struggles with drugs, the death of band members and involvement in crime. The book is complimented by previously unpublished photographs of all the bands interviewed The Australian underground scene in the last five years has been heralded not only in Australia but also in Europe and particularly America. Known as the "Australian Invasion" in America, many of the bands interviewed in this book have received a great deal of hype and press in America with many of the bands signing to American record labels. Bands featured in the book like The Drones, Eddy Current Suppression Ring, Royal Headache, Uv Race, Circle Pit, HTRK, Lost Animal, Oren Ambarchi, Total Control, Witch Hats, Deaf Wish, Blank Realm, New War, Holy Balm, Fabulous Diamonds, The Garbage and The Flowers, Straight Arrows, xNoBBQx, Naked on the Vague, Kitchens Floor and My Disco are all on American record labels and have all toured America at least once. Eddy Current Suppression Ring even lent their song 'Memory Lane' to an American telecommunications company advertisement, which was played repeatedly during the Super Bowl. Whilst that may indicate the influence of the band in America at the more mainstream end of the spectrum, at the other end, Eddy Current Suppression Ring are a culturally significant and revered underground band both in Australia and America who play to thousands of people at any given show. The bands in this book have dedicated fan bases both in Australia and America that recognise that this crop of bands are the most creatively important in the Australian music scene today. These are the bands that will be remembered in twenty years for having created seminal records. Already The Drones and Eddy Current Suppression Ring have won The Music Prize as well as both being named in the "100 Best Australian Albums of All-Time." The Author: James ( Jimi) Kritzler graduated from The University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Journalism degree and an Honours Degree in Journalism from Queensland University of Technology. He is currently a feature writer, reviewer and contributor to Vice Magazine. He has written for The Courier Mail Newspaper (News Ltd, QLD), Timeoff Magazine, Rave Magazine and New York's 'SUP Magazine. Jimi also plays in Slug Guts (Sacred Bones Records-NYC) and White Hex (Avant Records -Euro/USA) & Nihilistic Orbs -Australia). Slug Guts have released four albums, toured Australia innumerable times as well as Japan and USA. He has been putting on shows for a decade including many for bands featured in this book
