"Sometimes we wish for far away" man I love Powderfinger

This song was one of those songs I waited for when I listened to Powderfinger's album Odyssey Number Five, which I happened to listen to a lot in 2000 and 2001. I had just ended a 2 year de-facto relationship at 30 and my life was at a turning point. The understated agony in their music resonated with my own confused heart. 

I was reminded of my buried obsession one night driving home when someone with obviously impeccable music taste, I think on Triple M, played 'DEF', my second favourite song of theirs. And then by my mate Purple_Cath who was sharing her love of Powderfinger yesterday on Twitter. We lamented together their decision to disband.

So what better way to reignite my passion for men, such as these, that just reach in to my chest and grab my heart but than writing about it here. Enjoy, and I hope it brings back memories of late nights, dancing in muddy fields and stolen kisses. 


  1. I first saw Powderfinger at Charles Sturt Uni in 1997. I was there participating in the Uni Games and they were there to entertain us. Such a great gig. Double Allergic just grabbed me by the scruff of the neck and said 'you will pay attention to me'.

    Such a great band.

    Love & stuff

  2. Such a shame they disbanded - I wonder what a girl has to do to get them back together? Maybe we could send @edenland over on roller skates? Thanks for sharing - I love hearing about live gigs that you never forget.


  3. Im still mourning their disbanding :( Such and amazing band! And I believe they could have still developed as a band and reach new peaks...


Please don't be shy, I loooove hearing what you think...
