DUSTY-ESKY and Iggy Azalea are as Aussie as Pavlova

DUSTYESKY are from the same Aussie town as Iggy Azalea

Both DUSTYESKY and Iggy Azalea share one thing in common, they are both from the Australian country town of Mullumbimby,
New South Wales.
Fancy Iggy Azalea Being From Mullumbimby
I don't understand too much Russian or rap, but with a few nips of vodka..both sound good to me...well the Russian does at least, I might need a bit more vodka to really understand rap;-)
Vodka-swilling choir from Mullumbimby cracks the big time in Russia
Looks a bit dusty to me;-)
DUSTYESKY is a play on words funnily enough on the great Russian author Dostoyevsky and something really dear to Australian hearts...or stomachs...the esky, which is what Australians take to BBQs, sporting events, picnics, parties, music events and maybe to bed.
My teenage years in fancy dress, believe it or not, on an esky 
The Paul Hogan character Arthur Dunger I was being above
It's like a mobile fridge for keeping beer and mainly other alcoholic drinks cool.
A Pavlova is something just as commonly seen at an Australian BBQ, or party.
"Pavlova is a meringue-based dessert named after the Russian ballerina Anna Pavlova.
It is a meringue dessert with a crisp crust and soft, light inside, usually topped with fruit and whipped cream.
The name is pronounced /pævˈloʊvə/, or like the name of the dancer, which was /ˈpɑːvləvə/.
The dessert is believed to have been created in honour of the dancer either during or after one of her tours to Australia and New Zealand in the 1920s.
The nationality of its creator has been a source of argument between the two nations for many years. 
In 2008, Helen Leach published The Pavlova Story: A Slice of New Zealand's Culinary History, in which she argued that the earliest known recipe was published in New Zealand.
Later research by Andrew Wood and Annabelle Utrecht suggested the dessert originated in the United States and was based on an earlier German dish.
The dessert is a popular dish and an important part of the national cuisine of both Australia and New Zealand, and with its simple recipe, is frequently served during celebratory and holiday meals. It is a dessert most identified with the summer time and popularly eaten during that period including at Christmas time, however it is also eaten all year round in many Australian and New Zealand homes.

Those dirty Kiwis (New Zealanders) are always trying to pinch Aussie stuff, like our great bands such as 'Crowded House' and
'Split ENZ'.

But love trying to pass off to us their crappy actors like
Russel Crowe as being Australian.
I mean who are you New Zealanders kidding when anyone can see the Australian link in the band's name 'Split (Australi)eNZs'.
Get your own band and dessert you losers.
You can have Iggy if it makes you feel any better...please.
Next time I'm down in Mullumbimby I'm booking a motel within walking distance (with vodka drinking calculated into that distance) of DUSTYESKY's gig and I'll be keeping an eye out for any Russian dolls;-)
Which reminds me to get back to reading Thomas Keneally's book about Russians and my hometown of Brisbane, 'The People's Train'.
But don't worry, as I'm not a Communist ... just an alcoholic ... which is pretty much synonymous with being an Australian;-)
