Nice Jim! Check out Brian Eno's The Big Ship slowed down to 1/8th speed: www.youtube.com/watch?v=fm4pR9IPT7A (this song normal speed always makes me sad to think of David Foster Wallace)

Watched Midnight Oil 1984. Thank you Jim for your incredible song writing ability.

Yep. How I’m feeling these days.

You should work with David Lynch Jim...PS Congrats on 1984,its really good

sounds like the soundtrack to 'the samurai'

Super slow mo

Haha!

And you’ve still got your hat on!

May that leg bring you many more years of dancing and music making, Jim.

Glad its nearly healed Jim !

I had a very moving day yesterday, and it was in Canberra. This video is part of my improvised response to The Final Hours, the paintings of Myuran Sukumaran. Extra moving for me as many of his family were in attendance. Whatever you might think, it makes you think, about all the issues, and that’s what art is supposed to do. ‘Yes, in my life, since we must call it so, there were three things, the inability to speak, the inability to be silent, and solitude, that’s what I’ve had to make the best of.’ Beckett says it best. ...

A slave trader who realised his wrongs and wrote some of the most beautiful and haunting words. Thanks Jim so sad and yet such an inspirational song

One of the great right hands, might I add... You might look at this right hand and say “yeah, it’s just another right hand” But to many, it’s a right hand that has changed a few minds, ruffled a few feathers and caused lifelong tinnitus to more than a few people.

How many Gretsch guitars do you own, Jim? & what is that 12 string 360F lookalike you played on the Great Circle?

Missing you here this year Jim. 🎶 Always next year for the big 30th Anniversary! 😉🖐

What a gorgeous Gretsch. Am I right, Drew?

Dynasonic`s by De Armond - Great (and a hollow jet - not "chambered" like today !)

Was listening to Cold Cold change last night. Brilliant.

Wishing you were here, but confident you will be 2018

Standing up?

Nice Gretsch

As an archivist and former editor, I really want to see this.

Garrett said at Capitol theatre to “jump up and down you might get in this multi million dollar movie” - I’ve been waiting ever since for its release! Wonder if the bit will be included when I hopped on stage!!

For fans outside Australia, head over to the official Facebook event page Midnight Oil 1984 - The Movie (www.facebook.com/events/1536762313119657/) and click "attending" - news about international rollout will be shared there as it is confirmed.

Yes! Playing at my local in Yarraville!

Saw this and thought of u mike!! Sorry i cant go with u lol

Looking forward to the sequel - 1985. Kooyong stadium, grass matting being frisbeed around, Charlie McMahon and a phone call to Bob Hawke from the onstage 'Telecom' phone box

So cool it needs to play on a screen in Canada 🇨🇦

Got our tickets for both showings in Albury today. Camping the weekend again by the Murray River with my two Oil's fan mates. Graham George and Saul Behan-Dunne.

Thanks Jim! Hows the leg healing up? Will it be shown in UK at all? Or can we get it somehow, a friend owns a cinema who could show it for the UK and European fans 🙂

Capital Theatre when you had just arrived back from the UK, unbelievable, the place was mental I was worried the Mezzanine would crash into the Stalls.

Let’s Rock

Probably no plans to show it in the U.S.

Can't wait to see this! Bring on the 12th & 13th May! 😍 ❤ 🖑

Debbie Kennedy...for Russ. Larissa and I are going to Dendy Coorparoo session on 10 May. He is welcome to join us. I know it's the night before his birthday so wasn't sure if you had plans.

Mick Mac have u seen this? coming soon

Didn’t see this one coming Jim. Pleasant surprise. And what an important era of Oils history. Can’t wait to see it.

Jim this is beyond cool. I have tickets for all screenings. Thank you.

International release, pretty please!!!

that is awesome, cant wait to see it - are there any more hidden gems out there?

Many things come to mind....but i can only think of....Brilliant!

Oh yes it is and can't wait!!!

Any chance of us UK folk getting a look? Please, please 😃

Mark David WalshPhil O'Donnell could be worth a trip to the flicks for this.

Got my tix already Jim Moginie. It'll be a big work day so I'll look forward to the fun!!

Pino Foti. That's our night out...

Face Off. Jim and Seamus have merged.
My 2009 lost 2nd solo album ‘No Vans Mary’ has now been found and is up on bandcamp for download, stream or limited edition CD.
See the linked page for an explanation of this bizarre event, and mea culpa.
Love, Jim

I wore the guitar orchestra T shirt to Cross Roads in the Vines. Got some odd looks from the fans but what was odd was the “performance”of Billy Ray Cyrus!

Perfect timing w St Paddy's Day here. U got that drinking holiday in Oz too?

Is this because you finally cleaned out the shed? Also, we really enjoyed the gig at Coledale on Sat night. Best Irish music since Dublin.

Have the digital, but ordered the cd. Cheers!

What? It was - you - all the time ?! 😉 I listened to it a lot. Good to see it resurface. A reflective piece.

Coledale was fun jim. The cigar box guy.

I need to hear this. I absolutely love #pertetua. Bring it

Never lost on me! 😎

Wasn't lost mate.. I have a hard copy and a.digital one..lol scratched my cd so I had no. Choice but to go digital

❤️

Lovely music Jim

Seeing the guys ducking out of the way as Charlie moved around the stage was funny to watch!

Jim Moginie I must admit it's Tony Motts photo. We were way back in the field and my shots from the IPhone were passable at best. Thanks for the mention though, hope the rehab is going well.

Was great to see the Moruya boy up there 👍🏼

Sounded pretty awesome from where we were standing too Jim

One of the best nights of my life. It was an honor to watch you that night, Jim Moginie

Was an exhilarating performance

Great pic Jim

Best seat in the house that is Jim.... 🙂

Who said you can't sing?c"mon Seamus"

Bonfire! Of the vanities? Well... I'll leave that up to you. Probably is. Sigh.
But it's also the second song on Perpetua
It's made up of visuals taken last year on the road with the lads.

Nice song jim. Good vocal too got a good groove happening

Just listened to the EP on my bicycleride to work through Berlin. Nice soundtrack to start a week, thanks!

I absolutely love this. Great stuff Jim.

Love this song!

Nice stuff Jim. I hear a bit of an Ed Kuepperesque start to the song.

Great song.

Perpetually grows on you, like all the best music

Very nice!

That's going to be legal in July here in Canada

If I had a penny for everytime I had to open the door is have 5 pound sixty three")

If only a window of opportunity, Id be turning that little one around the other way. Definately some rebeliousness in that one.

It looks like that comment is coming from your little birdy on the window sill

I've got a Bird that matches that little one! HaHa! 😁😘 🖑

Do you drink that much tea Jim?

That's a lot of pot.

All you need is Mr Curly and his duck.

Rebel birdy 😀

Tip me over pour me out 🙂

Yeah you're def Oirish!
