Hey all, hoping the H/A hive-mind can help out again here.
I've tried googling but I honestly remember so little about this band, and Google doesn't seem to "do" vague association. So: I'm trying to remember the name of a band, fairly certain they were Australian and active around 2000-2002, possibly later. Their name had something to do with commercial flight, and their music was very obviously retro-inspired, with a guitar sound that was probably supposed to evoke the 70s/80s. (From memory!)
The band was definitely not Jet.
I realise this isn't a lot to go on, but I've seen this place in action and I'm convinced some of you are wizards, so any help would be fantastic.
[edit: can't seem to delete the thread, but I managed to work out who I was thinking of -- Rocket Science. Found it via Modular, as I remember listening to them around the same time as the Avalanches, also on that label. Thread can be closed!
Perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
