Wolfmother Dominates Australia's Aria Awards

Progressive rock band WOLFMOTHER picked up three top awards for their self-titled debut album at the Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards on Sunday night (29OCT06) in Sydney. Former POWDERFINGER frontman BERNARD FANNING also celebrated the success of his debut solo album TEA + SYMPATHY by winning the Best Male Artist and Album of the Year awards. Singer CLARE BOWDITCH, who is expecting twin boys with her husband, music producer MARTY BROWN, picked up the Best Female Artist award.

U2 frontman BONO appeared via video to congratulate the band on their achievement.
