The Rumjacks – Statement

ABC Music/Four Four has carefully considered whether it should continue its association with The Rumjacks given the criminal record of their lead singer (Mr McLaughlin).

The management of ABC Music/Four Four does not wish to act in any way which downplays or condones the serious criminal behaviour, wrongdoing and harm committed by Mr McLaughlin against his former partner.

However, we have considered that Mr McLaughlin has served out his time in jail and has a right to pursue his life as a rehabilitated person. Mr McLaughlin’s remorse and his commitment to rehabilitation is expressed by The Rumjacks themselves in a statement on their website which can be seen here:
