The Delltones are an Australian rock 'n' roll band, formed in 1958. They started out as a vocal harmony group with members: Brian Perkins, Noel Widerberg, Ian 'Peewee' Wilson, and Warren Lucas. In June 1962 lead vocalist Noel Widerberg died in a motor vehicle accident in Brighton-le-Sands in Sydney, and three weeks later the group's single "Get A Little Dirt On Your Hands" entered the Australian charts, reaching the top five. . Noel Widerberg's position was filled by Col Loughnan.
The Delltones have been performing for Australian audiences for over five decades; their most successful recording years were in the 1960s. Wilson is the only current member from the original line-up. In the mid-1980s, he transformed the group from a vocal quartet to a five-piece vocal band. This, along with other stylistic changes, led to the band's resurgence and the chart topping, rock ‘n roll revival album, Bop Til Ya Drop. The Delltones remain one of the most consistent live entertainers in Australia.

Dance In Chicago is a single by Mach Pelican who are a kind of Japanese Ramones or Hard-ons, with their catchy, four-chord, punk-pop. Dance In Chicago, a great -track of old-school punk, has been receiving a fair amount of airplay on Triple J. The band's Japanese accents give the harmonies and -choruses an endearing quality and sets their sound apart The other three tracks on the single are as good as, if not better than, Dance in Chicago. Gigantor and Sha RaRa show Mach Pelican can lift the tempo. The fourth track is a great cover of Ritchie Valens' (or the less memorable Peter Andre version) Do You Wanna Dance Now based in Australia, Mach Pelican have a great live reputation and have no trouble sounding powerful without losing accessibility.
