Under-rated bands from over-drinkin' lands.
Hoodoo Gurus - I Want You Back
Cosmic Psychos - Drinkin' w/ the SAS
Lime Spiders - My Favourite Room
And not from the southern hemisphere, the Pixies with their tune I like best -
I'm basing my recommendation on your explicit and implied wants. Firstly, you want AWD; secondly you're a 911 driver, so you enjoy a performance ride. Basically Audi revolutionalized the mass production AWD vehicle, and this AWD ride dominated the off-road rally circuit for many years. Audi is the performance AWD.

At the end of the day buy the one...

XTC - King For a Day
Lest we forget Milwaukee:
Violent Femmes - Add it Up
What? What's that?! Ya say it ain't roll 'n' roll...
Count your blessings, m8. You could have a girl that's full of opinions and talks your ear off.
Keep in mind that you've yet to hit jackpot: once you marry her you'll get to take care of her family. And the sick water buffalo, too.
The Chameleons (aka The Chameleons UK in the States)
Soul in Isolation
I've spent over 25 years promoting this band, and haven't found a band more deserving of recognition.
Here's a review of 'em:
"If there was a should-have-been year in the Chameleons' history, 1986 would clearly be it, and Strange Times demonstrates that on every track, practically in every note. Signed to a huge label, with production help from the Dave Allen/Mark...
