Nolan's camels. We haven't had camels for a long time.

I find myself liking both more than most of the newer artists recently! I'll vote for Nolan's camels as well.

Googled both, and it looks like both mostly did things similar to the ones posted here. I can appreciate minimalism, but let's go with Sidney and his black bottle-opener headed people.

Oh, I am liking the idiosyncratic histories of Sir Sidney.

I get to vote for the Australian and not feel like I'm deliberately influencing in vote in favour of my countrymen! Yay!
As much as Nolan is iconic in this country, I can't say that I'm a big fan, but in this case, he gets my vote. Long may he live.

Nolan rides his camels to victory over Noland, ten votes to two! Thanks for voting.
