Big Scary Has Big Win With 'Not Art'

After receiving high praise from near and far Melbourne band Big Scary has gone on to snag the prestigious Australian Music Prize for their 2013 album ‘Not Art’.

‘Not Art’ has already been nominated for an ARIA award and Triple J Album of the Year but this win sees the duo walk away with $30,000 to hopefully put towards future musical efforts.

Big Scary had their work cut out for them, going up against the likes of Jagwar Ma, Beaches and Jen Cloher.

The judging panel was also a star studded mix of musicians and journalists featuring the likes of Hoodoo Gurus’ Dave Faulkner, Renee Geyer, and Chris Johnston of The Age.

Just by taking a look at previous winners hints at what kind of trajectory Big Scary are on with the list including now internationally renowned acts such as The Jezabels, Cloud Control and Eddie Current Surpression Ring.

When asked to comment on the resilience of the album in the ever changing musical landscape keynote speaker and noted producer Steve Lillywhite responded “As long as there is weed, there will be albums”.

Truer words have never been spoken.
