The stones,the Who & the kinks were really big bands but for me the small faces were very under-rated & cool as f*ck!!

Ive also been known to like a bit of soul in my time...
This was a very under-rated tune imo.

I posted a similar thread about 6-7 years ago on here (when I was pure, accepting and tolerant). It went on receive numerous replies, tapping into many people's favourite 2nd passion.
As my brain cells dwindle, abused by wotsits, crème de month and curly wurlys, I cant for the life of me remember the moody old git who suggested them. but suggest them he did. I recall he said he'd seen them live (CCR).
So I googled/YouTube'd and eventually became hooked. Their catalogue is phenomenal.
I'm forever grateful to him for "virtually" introducing me to them. Whoever he was.

Also I seem to remember DaveFKing liked them too. Not sure he's on the site anymore. He was a cheery soul.

Youtube: Cold Chisel - When The War Is Over (Official Video) Pure class. If you don't know about this Australian band, no sweat. Ian Moss the singer/guitarist isn't even the lead singer. Steve Prestwich the drummer, sitting down with the 'shaker' wrote this. Steve very sadly died early 2011. The greatest drummer in my opinion and I've heard and played with a few. Check out a very young Steve Prestwich on Cold Chisel 'Forever Now' Okay, so he's playing a table in the video...

Yeah I think you'd like them, some/most of the songs are just brilliant. When The War Is Over (studio) Khe Sanh, Forever Now, Flame Trees, Choir Girl, Bow River, Ita, Four Walls Cheap Wine... It's endless. If you like guitar playing, Check out Youtube: Cold Chisel - Georgia (Official Video) Just wait for the solo, Mossy is just unbelievable and this country's airwaves never bothered with them. because they thought Australian bands were all about Men at Work Down Under, pathetic. Mossy's Strat sound not unlike the great Rory Gallagher.

Thats quality!early 80s & ive never heard of em,just shows mate that they didnt get a chance over here in Blighty.
Apart from ACDC & INXS,men at work & Midnight oil were the only other aussie bands i had heard of!!
