"Southend" (sometimes known as South End) were an Australian house-techno band formed around 1992 and active until around 1997. Based in Sydney and formed around synthesiser/keyboardist Sammeer Sen-Gupta and keyboardists Steve Younan, Stuart McCarthy and vocalist Melinda Page, it had a number of hits in the mid-1990s, most notably "The Winner Is...", released in June of 1994 which reached the national ARIA Top 10. "The Winner Is..." was based around a sample of the then International Olympic Committee chairman Juan Antonio Samaranch announcing that the winner of the 2000 Summer Olympics was "Syd-er-ney". They were signed to the Volition Records label and performed regularly at the Big Day Out from 1993 to 1996.
