Two good reasons to actually watch the Arias now, as painful as they are.

Yeah, I don't like awards shows, but I'd watch this if I could...just to hear them nominated.

When I heard about the nomination I remembered a recent interview where SK mentioned awards ceremonies (while discussing the "spirit of rock & roll") and it made me laugh. I dug it up:

Quote:

Kilbey explains that in recent times he has made something of a reluctant truce with the media’s desire to view his band’s career retrospectively. Looking back, Kilbey considers whether he has stayed true to the spirit of rock’n’roll.

“At the beginning of your career… you’ve got it all planned out. [You think] ‘I won’t do this, I won’t do that’ and ‘I won’t let this happen to me’. But if you keep going long enough, everything that can happen to you will happen to you eventually. I still do that; I sit here and say ‘I wouldn’t accept an award from a fucking awards ceremony’. But I’m sure if it came along and it was like, an Oscar, I would betray my ideals and do it.”
I'm hoping he gets to betray his ideals and accept this award....

LMAO...oh, wow...that oughta be interesting.

Am not overly familiar with the ARIAs...however, a band I like was inducted into their hall of fame a couple of months ago . Judging from some of the comments about the ARIAs here, so...are they kinda getting like the VMAs are here, for those of you who watch them?

Hey BEG, who's that guy in the show, The Alice? He reminds me of Steve Kilbey, kinda.

And the ARIAs are the same as the American version of the same thing, recording industry association mob, but Aussie.

Randomness is typical of these guys. The "huh?" factor is very strong.

The last time they played that venue (in 2003) it was called the Yallah Woolshed, which I thought was even funnier. Apparently it was one of their better shows too.

I think they aim for the places that give them the best cut. I know they play some odd places when they come here and part of the reason is they can make more sometimes at the odd places than at the "better" venues.

Hell, they've played laundromats!
