    sleepmakeswaves just blew my mind when I found out about them, though I'm not usually a post Rock guy.

    I'd say you could just find an aussie band on myspace and start looking at their friends lists to find more good stuff. Ne Obliviscaris is up and coming (or up and come), as with Be'lakor, LORD, etc.

    Rock tends to be harder to find though, due to the profusion of Metal (not always a bad thing considering contemporary rock now) but some good ones are Medussa, Wolfmother and Sedition.

    Surprised so many people mentioned John Farnham, I thought I was the only person who knew who he was! I used to play the bagpipes, and my teacher was the guy who wrote and performed the bagpipe solo on You're The Voice!!
