Noms out for Oz music kudos

Chambers, Lloyd, Silverchair grab six each

SYDNEY — Kylie Minogue, Natalie Imbruglia and Holly Valance each nabbed a nom Monday for best female artist in the 16th Australian Recording Industry Assn. Awards, to be held in Olympic Park Sydney on Oct. 15.

Minogue, along with country singer Kasey Chambers, balladeer Alex Lloyd and rock group Silverchair topped the list with six noms each. All four acts were nominated for best album, with Silverchair collecting three of the four pre-ceremony kudos; for best engineer (Anton Hagop), producer (Daniel Johns) and CD cover art.

Much-hyped newcomers the Vines, currently on their debut Australian tour, nabbed five noms, including best new artist (single and album). Valance, the other well-hyped domestic debut for 2002, nabbed four nominations including best new artist (single). Both acts are signed to the new Engine Room label backed by junior media tycoon James Packer.

New dance act 1200 Techniques joined the hot contenders list with four noms and a pre-show kudos for video of the year (“Karma”).
