Description

78 Saab are one of my favourite Australian rock bands currently working, and this is an album track off their 2004 release 'Crossed Lines'. The band consists of Ben Nash (singer guitarist and songwriter), Garth Tregillas (bass), Jake Andrews (guitars, vocals, keyboards) and Nicholai Danko (drums, percussion). 78 Saab was formed in university in Canberra, Australia by Nash, Tregillgas and two others who have since left - to perform in a campus band competition. The name came from the car that Nash drove at the time. "I used to own a 1978 Saab which I bought off my grandparents for around a-thousand bucks when I was at university", Nash said in a later interview, "Anyway, we entered a band competition and we had about 3 hours to come up with a name. '78 Saab' got thrown in the ring and for better or worse we've stuck with that name." (From Wikipedia). 78 Saab are a well respected band here in Australia, and in my view deserve more attention. They did have some chart success with 'No Illusions' (also off Crossed Lines) which got them exposure overseas by being featured on television shows such as 'Grey's Anatomy'. Check out their albums, including their latest one, 'The Bells Line'. There is no film clip for this song, so I have made my own slideshow. Comments are welcome.
