The Stems- "For Always" Video (1987)

Amazing Australian neo-psyche power-pop perfection:

  1. I'll tell you what's also AMAZING. I have been collecting Australian bands since the early eighties and I never heard a what or who about The Stems or even Dom Mariani until 2 1/2 years ago (although I must admit I did "hibernate" throughout most of the nineties). I happened to discover them on a just gone quiet (but still up) site "Mad Parade". Even crazier still, is the fact that I'm from the land of Mitch Easter with whom Dom has strong ties!

  2. Is there a better sound than an electric Rickenbacker guitar? I hope you are teasing us with this video because you plan on posting some Stems.

  3. cudawaver, they are a relatively recent discovery for me too, and I felt the same thing: how had I missed out on this band?
