The recent ARIA Awards has contributed to knock-on sales spikes for a whole raft of performers and winners.

Albums by Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu, the Presets and Gabriella Cilmi are among the chief beneficiaries of the televised Oct. 19 industry awards, held at the Acer Arena in Sydney's Olympic Park complex.

Yunupingu, who performed on the night and scooped the independent release award, has enjoyed a 27-3 lift for "Gurrumul" (Skinnyfish Music/MGM) on this week's Motorola ARIA Album Chart, while triple-award winners the Presets saw "Apocalypso" (Modular/Universal Music Australia) leap 19 to 4. The Presets' hit "My People" returned to the singles chart at No. 14, after the Sydney duo nailed an energetic performance of it during the gala.

Teenage breakthrough star Gabriella Cilmi caps a dream month which sees her debut "Lessons To Be Learned" (Mushroom Records/Warner Music Australia) arrive back in the top ten, climbing 35-7, after winning six ARIA Awards and performing her international hit "Sweet About Me" at the gala. The single has returned to the ARIA chart at No. 17.

The Living End's best rock album winner "White Noise" (Dew Process/Universal Music Australia) returns to the top 40 at No. 19, while the title track, which the band played on the night, improves 32-16.

Although he missed out on winning gongs from any of his five nominations, Sam Sparro's performance of "Black And Gold" at the Australian industry's flagship awards event has helped the track rise to No. 19 from No. 26.

The ARIA albums listing is currently topped by AC/DC's new release, "Black Ice" (Albert Music/Sony BMG) which has certified three-times platinum domestically (210,000 units).
