    Jim Jones is a Welsh name, so perhaps a broad South Wales accent would be
    better :)

    This is an American group, not British. The reference to Invasion Day is
    what Australian Aboriginals call Australia Day because it celebrates the
    landing of the “First Fleet” of convict ships in Botany Bay and the
    subsequent British colonization of their continent…nothing to do with
    Americans.

    Kind of unsettling how they laugh about the term invasion day.

    interesting introduction at the beginning about the americans invading
    australia and it also being called Happy Invasion day. It has an irish
    sound, however the british singer doesn’t sing in such a convincing irish
    sound. However makes up for great lyrics.
