Aussies Announce Hall of Fame Inductees

On August 16th, the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) will induct an unspecified number of artists into its 2006 ARIA HALL OF FAME at Melbourne's Regent Theatre's Plaza Ballroom.

Three artists in the 2006 ARIA HALL OF FAME have been revealed so far: synth-pop band Icehouse, Divinyls, who did more than that one song no one wants to hear you sing, and Daddy Cool. Official word is only that there are "more to be announced", but it's "believed" that Rose Tattoo and "a veteran" singer" will also be added to this year's Hall of Fame, while Midnight Oil is said to be a "likely" inductee in the October class. The band's manager said the band would show up if they were offered the honor, but not perform. They're not quite up to snuff, performance-wise, it seems.

Icehouse, Divinyls, and Daddy Cool will all perform at the August 16th ceremony, which will air exclusively on subscription television. FOXTEL and AUSTAR Digital subscribers can see the program on VH1 on Sunday, August 20 at 8:30 PM.

Divinyls - Pleasure And Pain (available on Living In Oblivion: The 80's Greatest Hits, Vol. 5)

Divinyls - I Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore (available on Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)

Icehouse - Great Southern Land (available on Primitive Man)

Midnight Oil - The Dead Heart (available on Diesel and Dust)
