That'll be a great Show!👌🎼
Going 27th!! How long is your set, Jim? Long enough to at least include Outer Space, 0 to 110, All around the world, I'm Happy, Blind Devotion, Rock, Destination Afghanistan, Stand Your Ground, Bonfire and a sprinkling of Oils songs!!

Single pickup electric’s ROCK. Nerd alert: there’s not as much string interference and node creation with just one magnet 🧲... so they ring, are in phase and clear and nasty. This one’s also losing all of its paint in big CHUNKS. It’s transitioning perhaps. And it’s cheap. #whatsnottolike #gretschguitars #gretschcorvette ... See MoreSee Less
"there’s not as much string interference and node creation with just one magnet 🧲... so they ring, are in phase and clear and nasty."
Nice pickup line!
I love this Jim. Us GTR nerds would love to hear and see more of your “Herd” and stables.
Looking forward to hearing you make a racket with this gritty little guitar on the new Oils album.
What's not to love about a Gretsch?
Bloody guitar nerds!!
Yep. I have a Les Paul and Gretsch both singles and they are awesome
I used to have the square head model!
Wish I had never had to sell it!
Not nerdy on this... but nice one .
" I used really nice-sounding, low-output pickups, because very old pickups have very weak magnets and very little pull on the strings, which creates a nice tone. A lot of guys like to use really high-output pickups, but that sucks the strings and kills your sustain because it stops the strings from vibrating. The new Carvin pickup that I helped to design for our new Allan Holdsworth Model uses that old enameled wire, and it has a lower magnetic pull so it doesn't suck on the strings."
Jim, you’re the reason I play a Gretsch.
Love it. Presumably that logic would apply to an Esquire. (Plus more wooden body weight without the second pickup routing).
A friend has a 62 SG junior single P90, light as a feather and lovely tone.

🙏 to all that came to see The Dog on our East Coast part of the Summer Of The DOG tour. It was above and beyond and a special mention to the #Powderworkers for your support and making it happen. And for getting into our album Bark Overtures. Much bonhomie and joy coming in your direction. Even if you didn’t come, be at one, you missed the fun, now the year is run, but there’s heaps more to be done ✅ #bloodyawfulpoetry Clip is by Ange Leech #barkovertures #jimmoginieandthefamilydog #midnightoilband #celibaterifles ...

Thanks Jim for the time you dedicated to the fans pre and post gigs. On behalf of the Powderworkers, we loved the gigs, the album and the welcoming of us from you and the band during the tour. 🙏✌️
Thanks Jim for a great gig at the Marrickville Bowlo, the chat, the photo, the autograph and for opening with Zero to 110! Happy New Year.
I got to meet you in Ballarat. #bucketlistmoment You are one of the nicest musos I've met. Thank you so much Jim. Please keep making music you are so gifted. They call you Mr Mogenius because you truly are A GENIUS x 😍😍😍
It was an absolute pleasure Jim! Thank you and the band for some awesome rock and grooves. 👌🏼👍🏼
Loved the show at the Espey thanks for the meet and greet and signing the album which is fantastic , I must apologize, I had one to many pints and thought I was 18 again which turned out to be fatal mistake. Crazy day Thank God I survived it.🎸😊
Fantastic show at Anita’s in Thirroul!
Love the album
Thanks for playing live👍🏼
See ya at Jive Jim!!!!
As this version of 0-110 is a different cut to the original shouldn't it be called 0-111? Turn those amps up! 😆
Thanks Jim enjoyed
We loved the gig at old bar... took some friends who had no idea what to expect and they were all blown away, cheers 👍🏼 Hope to hear more in the new year!
It was a pleasure meeting you in Maroochydore. Thank you for letting us watch your sound check at the Solbar. It was great. I will treasure that memory forever. 😀❤
Jim, thanks for the chat and for signing my copy of ‘Bark’ after the Newcastle gig. Great show😊
Thanks Jim. Was at the Northcote show. Enjoyed the night immensely. Happy new year to you.
Loved it Jim
Fantastic show in Newcastle 👍👍😄😄
And yes , aweful poetry 😂😂😂
Happy new year!
Was an awesome gig at The Espy Jim and a pleasure to meet you and the Dog afterwards. Look forward to seeing you next time your in Melbourne. Keep on rocking!
Can’t thank you enough Jim. The gigs were fantastic. 💙
Thank you J & FD. Great show. Love your style.
Loved the Noise Mr Mogenious. Brisbane in the Valley no less and got to meet the rifles (bought the mexicans)
Thanks Jim. Loved the 'more riffs' comment from a punter at Old Bar after 110. Your reply 'more riffs??? THAN THAT???'. Classic
Thanks for the chat pre and post gig at Marrackville Bowlo. Looking forward to Jive in Adelaide on 11th Jan. Love your work Jim and the Family Dog
Thanks for the Newie gig, Jim. All the best to you, the dog, and the other Oils for 2019!
No... thank you Jim! Only got to one gig but loved it! 🐶
Thanks back atcha. I'm thoroughly enjoying Bark Overtures (except that I'm Happy is running on a loop in my head). Just sorry I couldn't get back to Australia for the tour, because people are raving about it. I will see you next summer, though.
The show at Newy was impressively cool. Thanks big Dave Manuel for inviting me. Man, didn't that disco crowd move in quick after the gig! What a contrast.

Pt 2 of 2.
Sung in multiple Western Australian Indigenous languages including Ngaanyatjarra, Pitjantjatjara and Pintupi (all dialects of the Western Desert Languages), the group’s homelands spread across the central to south-eastern region of Western Australia.
The songs echo sorrow and regret about being a prisoner and missing family. Others celebrate the love of ones’ own country.
One musician uses his lyrics to paint the stark reality of an institutionalised man who was taken from his mother as a baby. Following this his tale moves from station to station, prison to prison, collecting every Indigenous word for ‘white fella’ along the way.
The album cover was painted by an award winning artist, and it symbolically represents a white and black man sitting around a fire.
Artist: “They’re singing together and telling a story about their-self, where they’re from. He’s learning for his language and he’s learning for his language as well. The emu foot represents them, a white one and a black one.”
The album was mixed and mastered by song writer and guitarist Jim Moginie, from the iconic Australian rock band Midnight Oil. Moginie’s previous collaborations with Indigenous musicians from across the country brought an experienced ear to the unique desert styles and rhythms.
Jim Moginie: “The music brought me in and I loved what I heard. There’s a truth and authenticy here that is missing from all modern music, like the original blues artists. It comes from the gut. When they say they want to get out of prison, and see family again, they really mean it.”
The CD will be available for purchase from the Fremantle Prison Gift Shop or by contacting the Arts Coordinator, Stuart Peel, on 6250 9211 or Stuart.Peel@justice.wa.gov.au. ... See MoreSee Less
If anyone is on Perth there is an exhibition at Freemantle Prison:
"Insider Art: Summer 2018 will also showcase ‘Wangka Kutjarra: Two Languages’, songs written, played and recorded by prisoners at the Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison. Featuring songs in both English and local Indigenous languages, the 10 track CD will be available for purchase during the exhibition period. Participants in the project said, ‘Our songs are to send messages to our children’s children teaching our language and culture for future generations’."
Wangka Kutjarra: Two Languages pt 1 of 2.
“Turlku nganyala inkarra wangka kutjarra kulintjaku mularrpa tjilkulu tjamulu kaparilu kurrilu kulira nyinanytjaku. Turlku Walykumunu ngurra kutjupanguru kulintjaku”
“Our songs we sing in two languages, telling true stories in language for people to listen to, our Children, Grandfathers, Grandmothers, Grand Children, and married Couples. Our songs are to be heard and shared, for home and different places.
Early in 2018, twelve musicians from Western Australia produced a completely original rock, rap, folk and desert reggae album. It is called Wangka Kutjarra: Two Languages.
Each of the musicians share their own unique story about love, loneliness, freedom, homeland, stolen generation and family.
What makes this album unique is it was all written, sung, played and recorded inside the walls of the Eastern Goldfields Regional Prison in Kalgoorlie-Boulder in Western Australia.
For two months the songwriters took part in the VET (Vocational Education & Training) Adults Education program that enables students to learn the skills to produce and record their own original music. This program aims to strengthen their education and rehabilitation experience prior to release as well as prepare them with the skills to pursue a career in music on the outside.
Student 1 Statement: “It’s important for people to listen to from the outside. Because we made these songs inside the prison and we are sharing with the outside. Music takes away the stress from the inside.”
Student 2 Statement: “It is important to be part of band to keep you busy, sharing stories, learning through the hurt and pain we have been through, sending a message, voice to family, partners, and loved ones in Australia and overseas. Music is healing the spirit, singing for health, songs about stopping drinking, changing life, sharing language and keeping culture strong.”
The musicians come from remote communities, from KiwirrKurra to Warakurna back down through Laverton to Esperance. They play together and support each other to record their songs. ... See MoreSee Less

Merry Christmas from this Nativity scene which was where we played at Old Bar on Saturday. (It was a Hawaiian theme really.) Love to those you have different religions, those that are alone and without family, those who this time brings up bad stuff: you are not alone.
