With absolutely no geographical relation to its name, The Middle East is an Australian band based in Queensland.
They have officially disbanded after playing their last concert – Splendour in the Grass in August 2011, leaving behind some really good songs and a number of disappointed fans.

Among some of my favourite songs from The Middle East are:
- Deep Water
