Powderfinger: The fine art of invisible brilliance

Play Video

Somehow or other Aussie rockers Powderfinger put out one of the best albums ever made and nobody seemed to notice. Odyssey Number Five was simply a most fantastic piece of work. I can’t even begin to describe it, just give it a listen. They were extremely popular in Aussie obviously and you can see by this video how emotional everyone gets when they play their final ever song together.

Sometimes a band this good just seem to slip under the radar but once you get hooked on Odyssey Number Five you’ll keep coming back to it year after year. This isn’t a band that are full of stories and rock ‘n’ roll shenanigans, they were just a really tight unit who wrote great songs and got to a point where they felt they had said all they needed to say. I suggest we let the music do the talking.
