Hockey Dad.
These guys live in the next suburb to me south of Sydney. Their first album was called Boronia after the street they lived in from when they were kids.

They're one of the most successful bands in Serbia/SFRY.
Wikipedia offers a good article about them (and there's the official presentation, too). A possible reason for the lack of international success of all bands from here can most probably be identified on the example of Divlje Jagode/Wild Strawberries.
Even less popular performers, at the beginning of their careers, were earning really well at the time, so the international careers weren't that important (include the Iron curtain, context of the era, prejudices from both sides....). The most difficult thing was to sign for one of three - four labels in the state governed industry, and afterwards everything would go much easier.

This my attempt to bury the hatchet with Tricycle Rider. This one is for you TR.
p.s. I feel that Pavement went downhill immediately after Summer Babe, which was the first track on their first album. Summer Babe is effing awesome. Reminded me of the first time I heard Smells Like Teen Spirit. I can still recall where I was. It literally stopped me in my tracks.

All joking aside, Mark Hollis, formerly of Talk Talk released what is one of my favourite albums ever recorded. His self-titled album remains to this day one of the best albums I have ever heard
I have listened to it at least 50 times, and it never gets old.
RIP, Mark.
