Busby Marou are quickly gaining the reputation as one of the hardest-working live bands in Australia. They spent the back end of 2011 touring with the likes of Dolly Parton, kd lang and Pete Murray as well as some hugely successful headline shows across the nation. Busby Marou scored high rotation slots from Triple J and NOVA and their debut self-titled album reached #24 on the ARIA album charts and #5 on the Australian artist charts. The boys are also making their presence felt with strong showings in the nominations at the AIR, Deadly and Queensland music awards. Their recent TV performance of Underlying Message on Rockwiz, including Jeremy’s ukulele shredfest, has certainly sent tongues wagging. Coolangatta Hotel tonight.

But now we have hard evidence that we are failing our elders. Some of the data that has been released is shocking. One in five residents have experienced sexual or physical abuse.
