I was browsing in a book store today and saw a book about Australian music called 'Up From Down Under' by Jeff Apter (http://www.fivemile.com.au/extract/down-under). I thought I'd see if The Vines had a quick mention in there and there was 2 or 3 pages about them, probably the most that's ever been written about them in a book!
Didn't get a chance to read it properly but I doubt there's anything we didn't know in there. It's from this year so there was a bit about Craig's arrest last year, which I though was weird seeing it in a book. I'm glad they're still acknowledged as an important part of Australian music though. Just thought I'd bring it to people's attention because I knew nothing about it.
