PETROL, PAINT AND GLUE: USING MUSIC TO ADDRESS INHALANT USE

Triple J TV recently broadcast a story featuring Aboriginal singer Delson Stokes Junior, who teamed up with musicians from the Panics and the Lazy Calm to create a song about the impacts of inhalant use on young people.  Delson, from the Kalgoorlie area, wants to make a pop anthem that will reach the masses of young people - both Indigenous and non-indigenous.  Delson has personal experience of the impacts of petrol sniffing, having had a close childhood friend develop problems from petrol sniffing.  The video features interviews with Delson and goes behind the scenes as they make the film clip and perform in communities around Kalgoorlie.
