Because architectural styles have varied in the country over the years (from villas to bungalows and brick renders), there is a slight inconsistency in the architectural flow of the suburban streets, with one writer noting that Australian housing styles sometimes "co-mingle" and "co-exist" awkwardly.

The Throb formed in Sydney in 1965 with the line up of John Bell on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Denny Burgess (ex-Mystery Men) on bass guitar and vocals, Peter Figures (ex-Geoff Doyle and The Resonettes, The No Names) on drums and Marty Van Wynk (ex-Geoff Doyle and The Resonettes, The No Names) on lead guitar. By 1969 Figures had joined Jeff St John & Yama and was later in various other groups.
In 1972 Denny Burgess joined The Masters Apprentices, alongside his brother Colin.
Climate has also influenced housing styles, with balconies and veranda spaces being more prevalent in subtropical Queensland due to the mild, generally warm winters experienced in the state.
For many years, Australian homes were built with little understanding of the Australian climate and were widely dependant on European styles that were unsympathetic to Australian landscapes.
But, perhaps the song for which they have become best-remembered is the brooding lament "Black", a feedback-drenched rendition of the traditional folk song, "Black (Is the Colour of My True Love's Hair)", which they released in August that year, but to lesser success, though it became a minor hit in Sydney.
In Melbourne, for instance, one early observer noted that "a poor house stands side by side with a good house." This is somewhat less common today, with home renovations, gentrification and the teardown ("knock down, rebuild") method becoming more and more common in affluent suburbs, giving a broader distinction between wealthy and lower class areas.
However, the teardown technique has led to home buyers purchasing land or older homes in poorer metropolitan areas and building extravagant Mc Mansion style homes on the land, which look out of place and excessive, failing to match with the remaining houses in the street.
This Quiet Earth (1998) heralded a development in Mc Carter’s musical composition, spawning popular singles Subversion and Ghost in My Head.
While the inclusion of electronic elements on the album shook up some fans of the band’s earlier Joy Division-influenced sound, IKON’s blend of traditional rock with electronics proved original and distinguished them from bands of the era who imitated the first wave of gothic bands.
