HILLSONG CHURCH STILL "SELLING" WELL: That Hillsong Church album is still hanging around the Australian charts, despite the band themselves selling virtually every copy of the record, thanks to their unique position as being a band that ARIA, the Australian record industry lobby, treat as a shop. Undercover are really running with this, trying to get answers from ARIA, who seem not be at all bothered with explaining how this interesting system has come into being. They've added an extra question, too: why, when the ARIA system is able to track sales down to the closest one, do they still persist in awarding Platunum Certification on the basis of how many have been shipped rather than how many have been sold? It's a question we'd like to hear the BPI answer, too.
