New Matilda’s Official Music Simulcast For Tonight’s AusDay Fireworks

0

Where ever you are in Australia tonight, there’s almost certainly going to be a fireworks display to ‘celebrate Australia Day’. Because of course, there’s no better way to mark the wholesale dispossession and slaughter of hundreds of nations of innocent people than by ending the day blowing some sh*t up.

If you’re at the bigger events, they always simulcast the fireworks displays with music, via a local radio station.

So New Matilda, has developed our very own special musical tribute/simulcast to acknowledge the ‘other’ Australia Day… name Survival/Invasion Day.

The songs are in no particular order… but you’ll definitely want to play all the way to the end – the last one should be THE anthem of January 26.

And a shout out to NM readers – we got a lot of suggestions for these. Where a song wasn’t already on the list, we’ve sent a special thanks to the brainchild.

Enjoy… and Happy Survival Day!
