  • A true Aussie band! Legends...

    Eskimoe Joe are a young Aussie band who produce such origial and truely amazing songs and don't get as much credit as they deserve. Their current album, Black Fingernails, Red Wine which is their third studio album has two excellent hits so far which are modern rock songs which is a change compared to their previous songs which were more pop than rock. The third single was really catchy the first few time I listened but its not as rocked up as the others. They are also really humble about their sucess as they have a studio in an outback house in the middle of the country and it is so layed back and smalll to keep away from press.moreless
