Lol...birding aussies, sometimes you do make me laugh. The responses so far 
have suggested this is off topic, not relevant to birding and not obviously 
connected to the natural environment. Here's a post from last year by BirdLife 
International (the secratariat of a group to whom Birds Australia is a member):

"Last night British Sea
Power - a band nominated for the 2008 Mercury Prize for the best album
from the United Kingdom or Ireland – enthralled fans by playing a
unique composition inspired by migratory birds at the British Film
Institute (BFI), London. “BirdLife are delighted that British Sea Power
are supporting our Born to Travel campaign”, said Ade Long - BirdLife’s
head of Communications - as he introduced the band on stage."

...and an article in the Guardian last year "Happy indeed was the time the 
band's Do You Like Rock Music? album got a
rave review in the RSPB magazine. With the RSPB membership exceeding a
million, their mag easily out-circulates any UK music title."



PS - let's be honest ... Fleetwood Mac ... they were never infamously 
conservationists and birders : ). Though it turns out that two bands I saw last 
year in Melbourne (Elbow
and Doves) both have frontmen who are also ornithologists. How much further can 
birding invade the psyche of contemporary artists than through rock music. 
Australia, we've a lot left to learn!
