Winner winner chicken dinner! Sydney rockers, Gang Of Youths have walked away a little heavier last night with four Aria awards to add to their mantelpiece. Titles included Album Of The Year, Best Group, Best Rock Album and lucky last Producer of The Year.
A highlight of the night was from Gang Of Youths frontman David Le’aupepe acceptance speech where he stressed the importance of a multicultural Australia, pointing out that each member of the band was an immigrant.
“We’re Pacific Islanders and we’re very proud of our heritage. We’re not just big people with big voices, we are a strong people, a proud people and we’re a loving community. We’re not just useful on the footy field,”.
