Oh the irony of Peter opening a place with Britney Spears posters on the walls...delightful.

> Former Midnight Oil front man Peter Garrett has opened a recording studio 
> at Papunya north-west of Alice Springs.
> About 200 people from surrounding communities have gathered for the opening.
> Peter Garrett, the Warumpi band and local Aboriginal bands will play a 
> concert at Papunya tonight.
> The community is one of the worst affected by petrol sniffing in central 
> Australia and it is hoped the studio will play a important part in reducing 
> substance abuse.
> Inside the studio is a mural depicting the communities favourite artists 
> such as TuPac, Elvis Presley and Britney Spears.
> It is the brainchild of Warumpi band member Sammy Butcher who says it also 
> can be used to record dreamings and stories from the communities elders.
