i) 30 Full Page Profiles - in chronological order; each page includes videos & songs:
- Split Enz - Formed 1972; from early art-rock they eventually topped the charts in several countries with albums & dark romantic new wave singles like I Got You, One Step Ahead & Dirty Creature; their striking visual styles incorporated cabaret, vaudeville, glam, new romantic and a black & white gothic punk look many years before, it seems, anyone else did.
- Skyhooks - Formed 1973; ground-breaking local pioneers of pre-punk glam rock; combined with theatrical costumes, daringly camp personas, humorous social commentary on numerous taboo topics; several number 1 albums & singles... (alongside ACDC) they are perhaps Australia's most important and influential early rock band.
- The Boys Next Door - Formed 1976; pioneers of post-punk-pop gothic rock; after an album and EP they changed named to become the much wilder Birthday Party which later led to Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds & other groups.
- The Reels - Formed 1976; best known for their ethereal version of Bad Moon Rising and the haunting melancholia of Quasimodo's Dream (with its gothic cinematic video clip) selected as one of the top 10 Australian songs of all time.
- Mi-Sex - Formed 1977; post-punk new wave rock band who featured prominent electronics, futuristic dystopian themes with heavy beats; a precursor to 'cyberpunk industrial dance rock' that came many years later; Computer Games reached no. 1 in Australia, no. 2 in Los Angeles & Canada; charting in 20 nations. Other hits include
People, But you don't care & Space Race.
- S.P.K. - Formed 1978; one of the earliest, most extreme and influential industrial noise projects; later explored ebm, goth, electro-industrial-dance-pop and dark ambient-cinematic-musique-concrete; a member later went on to a very successful career composing Hollywood movie soundtracks.
- Models - Formed 1978; post-punk alternative electronic rock group; topped the pop-charts in mid-80s but prior to that they were wearing industrial-combat style and make-up in industrial-themed videos with an innovative blend of angsty electronic-industrial-ebm-funk music (a good six years before, say, Nine Inch Nails starting doing something similar in the USA).
- The Scientists - Formed 1978; well known in Europe, the USA and locally these pioneers of murky post-punk swamp-rock were a major inspiration on the later waves of international grunge rock. The song We had love was re-popularised in the 2008 film RockNRolla.
- Severed Heads - Formed 1979; highly influential vanguard project of industrial, electronic body music (ebm), techno-house-electro-glitch-dance-pop, musique-concrete, noise, ambient & computer video synthesis (VJ'ing).

- The Church - Formed 1980; pioneers of neo-psychedelic-new-wave-goth-rock. A sound and style that became very popular with a later wave of British goth bands like The Cult, Sisters of Mercy and The Mission. The Church had numerous top 40 hits in Australia, USA and Europe.
- The Divinyls - Formed 1980; this post-punk new wave rock band had a top 10 hit in the USA, UK and many reached the top 40 in Australia. Chrissy Amphlett was one of the most striking and provocative women in rock music history with her husky siren voice, schoolgirl outfits and punk attitude.
