I don't even know where to begin with this, other than to say this is a recent episode of RocKwiz. An Australian tv extravaganza that seems to be a sort of bizarre hybrid of Rockstar INXS and a game show.
In any case, this episode is a tribute to the genius that is Easybeats (and much else) auteurs Harry Vanda and George Young.
Like I said, I don't even know where to begin about this. Except possibly to say that as somebody who has been trying, for most of my adult life, to evangelize about the greatness of those guys to American chums with only fitful success, I never expected to ever witness anything quite so cool. And yes, a lot of the performers are mediocre, but who cares? [I love that Isabella Manfredi, however, for obvious reasons.]
I should add that I did extremely well on the quiz portion of the show, which makes me very proud. I should also add that as a result of this show I discovered two terrific straight-ahead rock songs, by Aussie bands heretofore unknown to me -- "Am I Ever Gonna See Your Face Again" by The Angels...
...and "Run to Paradise" by The Choirboys...
...that Vanda and Young had a hand in.
I should also also add that I was turned on to this show by ace antipodean pal Peter Scott.
Hey Pete -- I owe you, big time.
