CD Reviews

Out on the patio, you'll sit play this CD & say this is Aus

"This CD has all their big hits but to be honest I hadn't heard of most of them and I am Australian. It does have the sensational Sounds of Then (this is Australia) song which is one of the best patriotic songs for Australia out there. It was the Australian TV station Channel Nine's theme song a couple of years ago so you may remember it from then. A fair number of surfing videos also have these songs in their soundtrack so maybe check them out if your not sure about purchasing.There's nineteen songs on here. If you have no idea what they sound like Gangajang would sound the most similar to Crowded House in most of their songs. Buy this album for Sounds of Then alone.There's no printed lyrics in the CD booklet."
Ganggajang album review

"Three words describe the music of Ganggajang, Fun, fun, fun! One of Australia's best loved 'pub music' bands, Ganggajang deliver infectious get-up-and-dance songs that you just can't help singing along with. From the unofficial Australian Anthem "Sounds of Then" to the driving beat of "House of Cards" this album takes the best of ska/reggae influenced music and blends it with Aussie surf rock to showcase some of the best party music in the Land of Oz. This band is also one of the best live acts I've ever had the pleasure to see (lost count of how many times!) effortlessly drawing the audience into the music from the second they step out on the stage. If you're not lucky enough to see them live, buy this album and play it LOUD!"
The best Surfing music I have ever heard

"The Essential of Gang gajang is the best Australian music I have heard.If you are a surfer, so it is a speacial CD for you.Most of the traks on the CD were used as music cover for the Classical Surfing Movie "Mad Wax"(Made by Quiksilver co)."
