Ok so, you should know these two bands. At the very least, you should know Insect Warfare. Hatred Surge, funnily enough, was started by ex-bassist Alex Hughes from Insect Warfare.
Needless to say, both bands rule. And what happens when they get together?
Face = grinded.

Elvis Costello, in all his angry, nerdy and literate glory may not look like much, but he's probably one of the most talented songwriters who ever lived.
These two are from his earlier days. They are both phenomenal works of in the pub rock/punk vein. I prefer This Year's Model but they're both so good you'll want them both
Alison is one of the most gorgeous and superbly written (from a lyrical perspective especially) songs ever.
My Aim Is True
This Year's Model

Very interesting band. The Pop Group mix funk, dub, and even jazz into their mashed up post-punk sound, and somehow, pull it off. There's something about post-punk bands and experimentation that go so well together, and this is a great example.
Worth checking out if you like music at all.

These are two of the most important violin concertos around. Both are of romantic period sound, although Mendelssohn was much earlier than Bruch. Mendelssohn's is in E Minor and is considered essential in a violinist's repertoire. Bruch's is similarly noted. If you haven't listened to much Romantic music then this is a great place to start.

Death/doom from Australia.
Though not as filthy and deranged as some of Australia's more recent output, and not as great as the seminal diSEMBOWELMENT album, Transcendence into The Peripheral, Cruciform still put out great quality material. Unfortunately, this album and a later demo were all they released, but quality over quantity is always a good thing.
Just another awesome album to add to the strong reputation of Australia's underground history.
