This year the Australian Recording Industry Awards (ARIAs) are celebrating 25 years of the celebratory achievements that the Australian Music Industry as given to Australia. Beginning in 1987, the awards were handed out similar to the Logies, but to musicians, producers, writers for their hard work and sales of record albums and achievements.
Between 1995 – 1998, Tony Martin and Mick Molloy released 3 comedy albums, based on their radio show Martin/Molloy that was heard on the Austereo Network. Each album had won awards.
In celebration of the 25th anniversary of the ARIAs, full awards shows are being released on youtube gradually. This video is from the 1997 awards, with Tony and Mick taking out the comedy gong for Poop Chute. 90s Indie band The Presidents Of The United States of America presented them with their fantastic trophy.
Hopefully they’ll release more 90s footage, especially the entire version of the 1995 ARIAs with Tony and Mick mucking around with 90s band TISM.
