    Hi there.

    In South Africa we get a lot of what is big in the UK and Europe so Aussie artists that are succesful over here are:

    Kylie Minogue
    Dannii Minogue
    Nick Cave
    Savage Garden
    Darren Hayes
    Delta Goodrem
    Jet
    The Butterfly Effect
    Natalie Imbruglia
    Reef
    Holly Valance
    Olivia Newton John (of course)
    Silverchair

    There are others, but I can't recall right now. Those mentioned above are the most popular ones. Aussie artists are quite successful around the world, aren't they. Have you ever heard of any South African singers ? Seether are from South Africa ! And of course Charlize Theron - she's an actress, but our BIGGEST celebrity after Nelson Mandela !

    Men At Work
    Radiators
    AC/DC
    Midnight Oil
    come to mind.

    Just finished a Radiators midi for someone. I'm surprised noone put down AC/DC or Men At Work. Hmmm.

    Stereophonics.
    It's really good. Just enough education to perform is their best album, and have a nice day their best song.

    I wouldn't say that. They've made their mark in my area of the world. Haven't heard anything lately though.

    Among all of it, I love Natalie Imbruglia, how about yours?

    Stereophonics are from the U.K., not Australia. :)

    The only Aussie artists I know are Jet, Savage Garden, and Kylie Minogue.

    Jimmy Barnes Rocks. Got two of his albums. You Aussies do know how to produce them. Men@Work were great to. Are they still around.
    Now if only we could get some of our South African bands heard!!!

    Colin Hay from Men At Work has a solo career now. He's was just in town about a year ago.
