Thanks for visiting my blog Praise For Wallflower. This a music blog that is going to be very different from most musical sites you will run across. Most of them are either arguing about which musical genre is the best or why their old school band is way better than the one you like. You will also find that most of them are trying to sell you some sort of products, whether it’s fan memorabilia or musical instruments and accessories. Our main focus has always been on the Australian Music scene but more recently the American Rock Music scene.
Australian Rock Music aka Oz Rock is an awesome artful manner of expression that started in the 1950’s and exploded immediately on the scene. It really came in 3 waves, the 1950’s, 1960’s and the 1970’s. It was a great time for all of Australian youth who had an interest in music and even those that didn’t have one.
American Rock Music hit the scene some might say with the Beetles and the Rolling Stones..but would most would agree that the face of American Rock Music has definitely changed over the decades. Most wouldn’t call the Beetles rock music these days. In the 1980’s you had glam rock where men were wearing wigs and make up on stage and that was considered rock music of the time. To the transformation of the late 80’s to early 90’s where thrash metal took hold and bands like slayer and megadeath were then considered rock of it’s time.
A little bit about who we are, what has been, what is and what is to come. We used to focus just on Oz Rock/Australian Rock with very little American Rock. With the explosion and popularity of American Rock we would like to focus some of our time on a lot of the yankee genre’s of rock. We will however always stay true to our Aussie Fans and promise that in the near future we will get back onto the Oz Rock Crazy Train.
We want to focus this year on American:
1. Thrash Metal
2. Grunge Rock
3. Hard Rock
4. Classic Rock (like ozzie)
5. Alternative Rock (Korn, Tool etc)
The reason why we love writing is the fact that rock music does something different to us and for us all. Sometimes it is there to mellow us out. Sometimes it’s there to channel the anger that’s going on in our lives at that time. And sometimes let’s just be honest..we just want to crank it up and Rock out.
Whatever your reasoning is behind your love of music, never let it die….it might sound crazy, but it’s the key to the future. Please contact us with any questions.
