The “lost” 1981 Silver Scroll Award
The APRA Silver Scroll Awards are streaming live from Auckland, NZ. As well as awards for recent songs, there’ll be a a special presentation of the 1981 “lost” Silver Scroll. No one can recall why there there was no awards event that year. Given there were so many classics released on 7″ vinyl back then, it’s time to make amends.
The 1981 finalists are:
*One Step Ahead, written by Neil Finn, performed by Split Enz
*Counting the Beat, written by Phil Judd, Mark Hough, Wayne Stevens, performed by The Swingers
*See Me Go, written by Tony Drumm, Peter Van Der Fluit, Michael O’Neill and Lawrence Landwer-Johan, performed by The Screaming Meemees
*Tally Ho, written by David Kilgour, Hamish Kilgour, Robert Scott, performed by The Clean
*No Depression in New Zealand, written by Don McGlashan and Richard von Sturmer, performed by Blam Blam Blam
View the live stream here from around 8pm NZ time.
