When footage from Animals Australia's Indonesia investigation aired on Four Corners, viewers across the nation were outraged. One person who was tuned in that night was GG Twang, from Sydney's country/rockabilly band The Black Spurs. Shocked by what he had seen and wanting to speak out, GG turned to his music to make his voice heard, composing the song "It Ain't Right" — a song that captures the feelings of so many who have been appalled by the cruelty of live exports.
"Thanks to Animal Australia, the mistreatment of animals through the livestock export trade is now public knowledge. The Black Spurs are honoured to help contribute to the reform of this industry through it's single 'It Ain't Right'. All proceeds from the sale of this song are donated to Animals Australia." - GG Twang (The Black Spurs)
If you would like to add "It Ain't Right" to your music collection, you can purchase it via iTunes, with all proceeds going to support the campaign to end live exports.
Sydney-siders can also sing along with The Black Spurs to "It Ain't Right" as they perform it live at the Sydney Ban Live Export Rally on Sunday 14th August (starting at 2:30pm).
Leave a comment to let us know what you think of the song.
