Big Name No Blanket Trailer (2013)

Trailer for Big Name No Blanket.

The charismatic and inspirational frontman of the Warumpi Band, George Rrurrambu Burarrawanga, hailed from Elcho Island, off the coast of Arnhem Land. George moved to Papunya (northwest of Alice) to get married and joined Sammy Butcher, his brother-in-law, in a band named after a small local community and honey-ant dreaming site. With Sammy on guitar, his brother Gordon on drums and songwriter Neil Murray, they took to the road. The first musicians ever to release a pop record in an Aboriginal language - 'Jailanguru Pakarnu' or 'Out of Jail' - they rocked Australia from the Centre out in the '80s.

Steven McGregor's impressive documentary, filled with interviews, clips and scorching music, follows George's story, from his island home to his premature demise.
