The Axis of Awesome (4 stars)

This article is from 2008.

Catchy tunes, brilliant lyrics and hilarious banter make this one of the most feelgood shows around. Australia's answer to Spinal Tap start with a spot-on parody of Europop before singing about adult mutant ninja turtles and a Bond villain with a lazy eye. The highlight is an extravagant medley of dozens of four-chord pop tunes. In a word: awesome.

This outfit claim they formed in '68 and having split, now reckon the time is ripe for a comeback. Think Spinal Tap meets Flight of the Conchords. 'Part of mFEST'
