    Looking Glass from Canberra put in a fucking phenomenal set last night for Desert Sessions at the Annandale. They are hitting their straps with the new drummer I reckon. Sounding better than ever.

    Nice american pop band in the 70’s....good memories. The australian stoner band is really great....but they could have chosen another name.

    Love this song. I was named after this one and it was the song picked for the father/daughter dance when I got married.

    I need to specify that my allegiance is to Looking Glass out of Canberra. One of the most amazing Australian bands of any time for mine.

    Had Brandy stuck in my head for a few days and tracked these guys down. The degree to which they seem to have evaporated is exceptional. Couldnt find any albums at the music store and only found one torrent. I've known some one hit wonders but these guys take the cake and the rest of the birthday party. Sad, their other songs weren't bad at all.
