Australian Underground, Pt. 1

I love a sunburned country. Welcome to Australia, and welcome to my list of twenty-five artists from Australia that deserve more recognition both on the site and overall. I've tried to cover as much ground as I possibly can - there's pop, rock, metal, funk, hardcore, folk, etc; so I hope I've done alright. Of course, there will be more of these lists to come. So here's the deal: Each artist deion is a link to their MySpace profile so you can check out their songs, as well as three bands/artists that have at least a similar sound to the act in question - kind of an "if you love W, X and Y, you'll love Z" kind of thing. Enjoy! And please comment telling me what you think of each act.
