The Australasian Performing Right Association recognises excellence in contemporary music, honouring songwriters and publishers and previous recipients of the Ted Albert Award include Paul Kelly, Cold Chisel and the Seekers. The awards ceremony will be held in Sydney on April 10 and will feature Song of the Year nominees Amy Shark, Gang of Youths, Jessica Mauboy, Paul Kelly and Ainslie Wills. However, four decades since their self-titled debut album was released, the wildest applause on awards night will surely be for the Oils.

"Midnight Oil's connection to Alberts began in 1978, when the band, in between playing sweaty pub gigs in and around Sydney, recorded our first album at the Boomerang House studio in King Street," the group said this week. "It (the award) is a great honour for our band."

It is called Loudmouth Soup though and the trio delight in doing all things with a cold can of beer, especially punching out massive riffs soaked in a skull-rattling rhythm section and Knight's gruff vocals leading the charge, as though perched high in the tractor seat of an old Caterpillar.
