    Here we are again! The second volume in our series of Australian guitar pop compilations. It's an exciting time right now for Aussie guitar pop/rock. Bands such as The Vines, Jet and The Sleepy Jackson have all recently made a huge impact on the National and overseas pop charts and media.

    With the exception of Her Majesty's Finest who contribute the title track this time around, "Shake Yer Popboomerang 2" showcases a whole new batch of Aussie talent. There are also a number of musicians from "Shake 1" who reappear with new outfits. (See if you can pick them).

    As has become the tradition of these compilations, the bulk of the material here is rare and exclusive. Again, we have a great mix of more established acts such as Sneeze, Even and Peabody and the nations next wave.(Dollar Bar, Tamas Wells, Shifter, Ruteger)The most exciting aspect of "Shake 2" is that this album features some of the hottest emerging talent in Australia right now. As we go to pressing, "Shake 2" represents the first commercially available recordings for The Suits, Hovercrafts, Tranquilizers, Prettymess, Mome Raths, Go Betsy & Milli Davis.

    There are a really wide variety of pop/rock styles found on this album. Highlights include the bouncy sweet hooks of Remake Remodel, the punchy power pop of bands such as The Suits, Prettymess, Peabody and Even, the sprawling country twang of Mid-State Orange, the melodic keyboard driven pop of the The Tranquilizers, the four part harmonies of Shifter, the gentle addictive pop lullabies of Tamas Wells and the lush jangle pop of The Sound Platform. The latter band drafting in Sasha Bell from the UK outfit The Essex Green to provide lead vocals.

    We have seen the exciting progress made by several bands that featured on "Shake Yer Popboomerang Volume 1". 2003 saw Treetops, Starky, Showbag, and Smallgoods sign record deals, receive strong national radio airplay and snare important International tour support slots. Given these successes, it will be intriguing to watch the development of the newer bands from "Shake Yer Popboomerang Volume 2."

    We hope you have as much fun listening as we had compiling it. Now off you go again and Shake Yer Popboomerang!
