Tall Poppies

The Tall Poppies are from Perth, Australia. So let’s not pretty this up now, for what they lack in enviable roots they make up for in charisma. There is indeed no-holds-barred at this party, and everyone’s invited.
They’re blissfully out of step with current fashions, but aren’t all the best bands? Although most bands think they are unique, few are. Tall Poppies, twins Susan and Catherine, are possibly inimitable. Their music is whimsically clever and the lyrical storytelling is enigmatically amusing while grasping the imagination and daring it to think outside the circle of the CD.

Flowers

There is more than one group under the name “Flowers”. 1. Flowers was the first name of Australian band Icehouse. In the years 1977-1980 they built a strong reputation in the Sydney pub circuit as a more intelligent, New Wave style band - at some contrast to the two guitars, drum and bass style that was otherwise popular at the time.
