McFarlane felt this album was more self-assured and
textured [it] consolidated the bands position at the fore-
front of the alternative rock scene, alongside the likes
of You Am I, Spiderbait, Silverchair, Regurgitator and
Tumbleweed. [The album] was full of accessible, spirited
rock.[2] Australian rock music journalist, Ed Nimmer-
voll, noted "[it] revealed a signicant shift towards acces-
sible rock songs rooted in melodic grooves. Powdern-
gers reason to be is to create songs strong enough for the
band and audience to play and hear months or years down
the line.[6] Four singles were released from the album
"Pick You Up", "D.A.F.", "Living Type" and "Take Me
In". Take Me In was released as a video single featuring
several other music videos by the group. FasterLouder,
a music review web site, recalled that when Double Al-
lergic was released in 1996, it showed the band were here
for the long haul to become arguably one of the best of
the decade.[29] In 1997 the album was issued in Canada
and the group toured North America to promote it.[2]

a real punch to songs.[47] Middleton described the bands


aim was to get a sound in the songs that was reminiscent
of things we grew up loving, which was Bowie, Zeppelin,
Kiss ... that sort of thing; all based in the 70s. We wanted
to sonically have that as well, so its a very old-school-
sounding record. Its all the old amps, we used old gui-
tars and recorded to tape, of course. Its fairly organic in
that sense.[30] Vulture Street won four ARIA Awards in
2003: Album of the Year, Best Group, Best Rock
Album and Best Cover Art (by Steven Gorrow, Rev-
olution Design).[33] Singles issued from the album are:
"(Baby I've Got You) On My Mind", "Since You've Been
Gone", "Love Your Way", and "Sunsets". Tracks were
also nominated for awards in 2003 and 2004.[33]
In September 2004 the group issued their rst live al-
bum, These Days: Live in Concert, initially as a CD and
followed in October with a two-disc DVD. One single,
"Stumblin'", which had appeared on Vulture Street, was
issued as a live version. In late October they released a
compilation album, Fingerprints: The Best of Powdern-
ger, 19942000, which included many of their singles
from the rst four albums as well as non-singles: Thril-
loilogy and Belter, and a re-release of These Days.
These Days, although never ocially released as a sin-
gle, was ranked at No. 1 on the Triple J Hottest 100
poll of 1999.[44] The album also included two new songs: Darren Middleton on guitar in January 2010 at Big Day Out,
Melbourne. He joined in 1992 and formed a side-project,
"Bless My Soul" and Process This, although only Bless
Drag, in 2001. During Powderngers 2005-07 hiatus, Drag re-

it as Powderngers rst dull album but the band as the

their rst single for three years, had been issued in May,
and reached No. 5.[24] A second single, "I Don't Re-

"Black Tears", was amended following concerns that it
could prejudice a trial over the 2004 Palm Island death in
custody case. Fanning stated that an alternative version
would be on the album as a result of the concerns.[67] On
