Album Review: Various - Dirty Jeans: The Rise Of Australian Alternative Rock

28 Days is one unusual inclusion, but overall it’s a good snapshot of the era.



Dirty Jeans… takes you straight into the sweaty pubs of the 1990s where indie-rock bands like Hard-Ons, You Am I and The Meanies were ignoring the Seattle Sound and discovering our own distinctive voice. This compilation includes the big hits, like Spiderbait's Buy Me A Pony, Silverchair's Freak and You Am I's Heavy Heart, and more underground classics like Tumbleweed's Hang Around, Front End Loader's Pulse and one of the greatest songs of the era – Ammonia's Drugs. 28 Days is one unusual inclusion, but overall it's a good snapshot of the era.
