So here we go , John`s music reviews and some slang Australian english that may or may not help you if you choose to go to Australia or meet one of us and don`t have a clue what we are talking about .
First up I will review all types of music which I like , if you don`t like it try again next week , I am sure you will find something to to keep you happy.
This weeks band is THE POSTAL SERVICE .
The Postal Service is an American electronic indie pop band composed of vocalist Ben Gibbard of Death Cab for Cutie and producer Jimmy Tamborello of Dntel, Headset and Figurine.
The band's debut album, Give Up, was released on February 18, 2003
We Will Become Silhouettes" Is about the photo taken of a mans silhouette that was left on the footpath after the bombing of Nagasaki .
The song is making light of a serious subject a family hiding in a bomb shelter waiting for it to be safe to exit .
It is a very daggy video but I love it and the album very much.

Ok Aussie slang( Daggy) means kakuwaruii , Not cool !
It is actually taken from the word dag which is matted hair that hangs from a sheeps bum .

Sweet enjoy music , John Wharton
