That’s good. I am them, they are me, we are all together
Great tune & info...we are becoming more & more like the Ewoks in the Orson Wells time machine movie....too many sheeple but we still have the Lamb 😇
Is anyone having problems opening this? 🤷🏻♀️ YouTube doesn’t want to play 😔
You can't open it if you haven't committed to tickets to the show....no probs here lol.....
Thought provoking. The world is upside down and moving backwards.
Cool video, I wonder if that is the Leonard Zakim bridge in Boston at roughly 4:10 into the video.
Tastes a bit like Neil Young and Crazy Horse. Which is a good taste.
Pretty oilsy yjimbo!"👋

Can't wait! Nice pun too. Reminds me of the dog who wasn't very proficient on the piano - he's Bach was worse than his bite.
Will there be a vinyl pressing?
Love the artwork Jim
Meet you on road between papunya and mount Liebig remember safe journey brother
Happy days. Two releases announced in a week. You’re spoiling us And now for my usual question that I pester both you and Jack with. Will there be a CD release?
Brilliant Jim ...can’t wait to hear it.
A tour, an album, AND a single? Jim, that's too much for one man to handle
Congratulations on the album Jim!
Can’t wait Jim, congrats. See you in the ‘gong’ 👏👏

Preorder at radi.al/BarkOvertures
I’m more than a tad excited at the announcement below. It’s been a while in cloistered hiatus, but the Family Dog and I are releasing a single (‘Blind Devotion’...today), an album (Bark Overtures) in November and doing a nationwide club/pub/theatre tour named ‘Summer Of The Dog’ in sporadic bursts between late November and January.
The record has taken a while to finish but the planets lined up when I was at a loose end early this year and Kent Steedman and I reviewed 12 years of random Dog recordings, or shards of the lost historical documents as we preferred to call them. (We record a lot for recreational purposes.) And found them anything but excruciatingly dull. We found many gemstones there and pressed ahead in editing, recasting and mixing these fragments of excellence. It’s a full live-off-the-floor rock recording with certain trademark psychedelic twists which you may even find quite entertaining.
Below is the spiel which includes the ‘Summer Of The Dog’ tour dates and tickets are on sale as from today. We’ll list the gigs as individual ‘Facebook Events’ in the coming days.
Hope to see you out there.
Back in 2006 Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil) founded The Family Dog to promote his first solo album ‘Alas Folkloric’. They went on to perform and tour together. In November and December 2018, The Family Dog is hitting the road after a long hiatus and showcasing songs and tunes from the new album ‘Bark Overtures’ , recorded live at Oceanic Studios. It will be released on November 5 by Sony Music Australia on CD and vinyl and Orchard digitally in worldwide.
The Family Dog is guitarist Kent Steedman and drummer Paul Loughhead from Northern Beaches legends and punk rockers The Celibate Rifles, plus multi instrumentalist Tim Kevin from La Huva, Exiles and Youth Group. Live, this lineup is all about dynamics, travelling from a whisper to a scream, from a blitzkrieg, to trippy psychedelia, with the odd Oil’s classic thrown in for good measure.
Presents partners: Select Music and Sony Music.

Don't forget to slam it up to spotify. They are doing singles direct from artist and"supposedly" it increases chances of landing on the spotify lists. Can be helpful. Good luck Jim. Liz says hi!!!
Hey Jim. Any chance of another visit to the Narooma Golf Club? Wishful thinking (methinks)... Cheers mate.
Awesome Jim, im looking forward to it Maybe the next tour could be called Summer of The Seventeenth Dog 😁
Maroochydore! 🙏 Bless you Jim, see you there!
Awesome dog news thanks Jim and band. Where is Kent in that photo? Those 4 guys have shoes on?
Jim Moginie - I think you can get a cream now for cloistered hiatus.
Tickets purchased. New record and Ballarat gig, awesome!
A national tour requires a visit to all states. I'm sure walshy could find a couch for you to sleep on.
No worries, see you at the NSC!
Can you bring the Dog to NYC? We got your love.
Oh God, I just hope the Espy isn't fucked after its renovation
Ooo yeah!! Looking forward to seeing this...👏
Looking forward to hearing this!
Jeff Scott 1st Neil Murray heads west now it's Jim and band... Have a blast my friend...

Hi Jim, I've been wondering what this guitar is. It looks like a flat-top Ric but the headstock looks more Gretsch? Can you enlighten me, please?
I’ll get some mole fays for you Jim
The Great Circle 2017 was the greatest concert tour event of our lives Adrian Adrianna Cook and Frank Stumm. Thank you Jim and the rest of the Oils for the joy you gave us in 2017 and all you have given us since the 1970s. We love you. #fiveagainstheworld #Oyals #TheGreatestBandEver
Hi Jim Still got fond memories of The Great Circle tour. From Wodonga to Hanging Rock and Sidney Myer.....To go and see The Oils with the same mates that we did 30 years ago felt like we had gone back in time. It was awesome! Thanks!!
Me thinks you need to do another Australian Tour 🤙
Beautiful shot! I feel so lucky to have been there!!
Mountain in the shadow of light
Saw the last show in Paris, feels like 20 years ago . Time flies. Hope to see you play in Europe again!
What a wonderful pressie Surfing With a Spoon was that night
Fantastic Shot! What a time that was!!! Would love to Relive that all again! (Minus your Injury!)
What a great gig. Thanks for Surfing with a Spoon btw!
From the hunter Valley gig last year.
Get up and stand, don't be lazy Jim 😁
Jim... it was a great Tour and we hope for more of the Oiler's 👍 Love Greetings from Germany 😎😎
Great shot, when is the great circle work tour for our farming folk?

I made this video from footage taken on The Great Circle Tour. I just figured out how to put it up on youTube. Glory be. It's for the song Moving Trains from my PERPETUA EP. Love, JimJim Moginie. From the 2018 EP Perpetua. ... See MoreSee Less
Moving Trains always makes me tear up and remember. It’s on my daily playlist and makes me pause for a moment to appreciate where I came from and also think on those who have gone before, the good and the bad.
Tune! And ‘wow’ now re the accompanying clip. Fond memories flooding back from my great GCT traipse north to Copenhagen for last year’s unforgettable (27 tunes on 27 June!) gig. Next Wed marks the 35th anniv of my first ever gig attended of the band ... life-changing. And thank you Jim & band brethren again for all.
Ethereal. I suspect a film or stage musical may be in you Jim. An apocalyptic adaptation of Red Sails in the Sunset for stage or screen?
Don't know how I got here but put out some new tunes you lazy bar starts! Oils I mean . Hope is what you say and do!And get rid of that runway
Love that song. Each time I hear it, don’t really know, but there is something in there that gives me goosebumps
Wonderful! The busker's guitar is one to add to your collection!
Loved that! Such a Talent! (I think you definitely sound a lot like John Lennon)
That's great Jim Moginie! Lovely images. Which is the train station at approx 3.50-4 minute mark? 🙂
You can't outrun you....so true
I love everything about this song. EVERYTHING.
Did you find any Jim, UFO's that is (LOL).
Beautiful music and stirring words Jamie xxx
Gotta day Jim, you guys sounded better at the domain than you ever have.
'You can't outrun you' - haunting
Ahhhhhh, the Beyer Garratt 😊
Great song & a great clip Jim. 😘
Nice song indeed Jim. 🙂
Clip is great , song is great !
That's a great chorus ...

Jim I took a selfish out side Hammersmith Apollo last year with you. The best pub in cork city for a session is the corner house never known you might make it sometime.
So a session is very different from a craic then?
This is great. I've experienced the whole Irish music experience and it's pretty amazing. x
Hey Pip Spilsbury Gordon I think you’ll enjoy this!!
Inspiring as always Jim. Beautiful spotify playlist.
Love it Jim!
A great read! Thanks Jim!

I’ll never forget the feeling of finally finding a copy of Fuzzface (and the Land single) on eBay after many years of searching. I’ve now two got copies and am now looking forward to Fuzzface II. Maybe the next EP pooled with Perpetua and Under the Motherlands Flag for a physical release 😉
I thought Fuzzface would have been out of print, I’m happy now I have my copy on its way 😁
I’m digging out my original pressing of Alas Folkloric for a Jim moniker on November 15!

Has he started colouring his hair?

Our supreme leader says Coal is the Future. #mayneedverifying #voteregularlyandoften #itsadreamcansomeonewakeme ... See MoreSee Less
"And the world's only 6,00 years old, so we can make heaps of this stuff real fast."
Can’t eat coal, or can you? Let’s use ScoMo for some science and observe. He’s delivered a prominent anti-wind campaigner as energy minister and former mining industry lawyer to protect our precious environment #urgh #actonclimate
Solar will never replace coal if we aren't allowed to export what we produce. I have a 10KW solar system and I am only allowed to send 5KW back to the grid. Backward thinking politicians will be the death of Australia. Viva the republic revolution.
We exported $56 billion worth of coal in 2017 and is tipped to topple iron ore to be our leading export in 18/19. Crazy...
It takes 17 million years to create coal, yet Scott Morrison - a Christian fundamentalist - believes the earth is only 4000 years old.
Where have all the intelligent and conscientious people gone? It feels as though they aren't voting. I'm disappointed again and again. I'm in Ontario Canada and we just elected Rob Fords brother to run our province. He's a cartoon character. A former drug dealer, sleazebag, anti-environment, anti-science, anti-working class. He's another right wing populist loon who will funnel all our money to the wealthy, and people voted for him. I'm disgusted. Things have gotten out of hand, around the world. What are we going to do about it?
Well there a big hole in our future then. Maybe we should back-fill the ones already there and move more quickly towards total renewable energy. Like the rest of the civilized and technologically advanced world is heading...Stop coal-corporate donations and political influence in government in Australia and you might see some sensible talk from them.
"False-hearted judges dying in the webs that they spin, Only a matter of time 'til night comes steppin' in". Was Dylan singing about the Liberals? Bring on the election...
They are not “leaders”. Absolutely not! They are stooges for anyone other those they should be working for.
He is not our leader. He was somehow put there through some back door dealing, not via an election. 🤮
Your leader is insane. Coal will pollute all of Australia, and quite possibly kill quite a bit of the indigenous life there. Solar and wind are MUCH safer, and you never have the problem of running out of coal.
Mmmm... I see a theme emerging from ‘world leaders’.
Total disconnection from the people they actually represent
Does ScoMo have huge feet that propels his hollowed out log-car?
His rock was coated in lacquer so he didn’t get soiled by coal dust. Grub!
I guess the fossils have to stick together
Must be cut from the same cloth as our Supreme Leader, Donald Trump.
ScoMo = SceMo OR Stronzo (2 apt Italian words. Take your pick)
A joke and a half.... except absolutely nothing is funny about it
May the ghosts of a thousand chimney sweeps inhabit The Lodge until he departs...
this is what corruption looks like.
No Jim I wish it was all about $
Burn that coal!
He wrote the book on torturing kids.
Good one Jim!
