The Cannanes are from Newtown, Australia. They started playing together around the same time as Beat Happening, with some similar concepts like primitive-landscape folk-pop and cassette-only releases. The Cannanes exploded on the non-pop scene spreading a fresh Newtown Sound that would confuse the rock'n'roll world for decades to come. The pop music these folks make is so unlike any other; you might call it "unworldly", with trumpet. Noisy pop rockin', to the extreme.
