Russell Crowe's band has been mentioned in the past on this list, so I'll bring it up again only because of a funny Midnight Oil reference.  The September 21 edition of _Entertainment Weekly_ has this blurb about Crowe's band:

30 ODD FOOT OF GRUNTS Bastard Life or Clarity (Artemis)

Which it probably is (despite the fact that Crowe's played with
Grunt member Dean Cochran since 1984). But their Bon

about Gladiator loincloths, Life is often rewarding. B-
