DISTILLERS lead singer Brody Dalle loves the anonymity her Los Angeles home affords her, after emigrating to the US city from Australia when she was 18.

The rocker made the move to be with her then-boyfriend, former husband Tim Armstrong, and hasn't looked back since.

Dalle, 26, says, "I like that you can kind of disappear. I feel like it's so big that you can just walk into the darkness or walk into the haze.

"For me, Australia is such a bittersweet memory. I don't think I could ever really live there again.

"It's filled with some joy and a lot of tragedy."
