Iconic brick flats, with agave

 

Comment on Facebook

Jim I’m sure there’s a basement flat in this block. Hopefully there’s a Basement Flat in the next Oils set list as well just saying ๐Ÿ–

The agave look positively life threatening !

Looks like one of the blocks I grew up in (Sydney's East).

Not sure what this is supposed to mean Jim - is it a photo or something else? Just looks like a small block of flats with interesting sky in the photo.

That was on Powder works Rd. My brother and I rented there in the 80s....

Kingdom: Plantae Clade: Tracheophytes Clade: Angiosperms Clade: Monocots Order: Asparagales Family: Asparagaceae Subfamily: Agavoideae Genus: Agave ;-) I looked it up

I think Jim is showing his appreciation for symmetry, deep blue skies and 70s (?) garden trends

Maybe it is a Tequila factory, they use the Agave for the spirits... ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

They’re not red brick flats Jim but some folks still live in them ๐Ÿ˜‚

One by one a well framed picture is blocking my Sun.

I'm surprised a flat can generate so much chat.

Winters flats

There is enough

Rob , still one of the great drummers . Martin, about time you got rid of that old Strat - I can take care of that for you! So looking forward to Martin and Jim hitting it again - still love Back on the borderline and No reaction. The best aussie songs of our generation

The message is more relevant than ever. The music is direct and delivered in a powerful less is more way. Including some new school "rap" is keeping with the times and fits in with the song mood. Great work, cant wait to hear the whole album.

I love how the oils have added in the rapping part.stronger than ever there msgs .pete words he sings go very deep.i recognise all what is said .thanks oils

First listen and I love it. MO just keep on going and getting better! Can’t wait to hear more of the new stuff. The message is clear and powerful.

in my opinion and my opinion only ... there haven't been many bands that have taken time away and then stepped straight back into their music and have it feel and sound like they never went away.

Jim, you guys killed it on this song!!! I’ve been listening to it on repeat since yesterday morning. Beautifully perfect song!

Thank you Jim and the rest of MO. Lovin it.๐Ÿ’š

Seamus working the Akai in the old school way.

What a return. Opening up the band to new ideas without losing any of the power and visceral protest. As it should be.

Really loving the new music Jim. The sound and the motivation. Can you tell me, is there any difference between the yellow/red vinyl except aesthetics?

Gadigal Land was a slow burner (for me) but this grabbed me immediately. Quality stuff.

Saw and heard this , magnificent!

Great song! I've been listening to it all day.

As a life long Oils disciple, I’ll follow you guys anywhere anytime...but the rap bit made me cringe. Other than that, I love the tune!

Stary dobry Midnight oil , coś pięknego ...๐Ÿ‘

Excellent, as well as Gadigal Land !

Nice to be flooded with new Oils!

Instant shivers down my spine...

Magnificent ๐Ÿ–

Marvellous work

Listened to the song yesterday and love it, also ordered the super pack as well.

So proud Jim Moginie x

Great guitar riff and keyboard outro line.

Can’t wait for the album Jim. Will you tour locally next year?

A work of brilliance.

Was thinking of you the other day Jim when the news broke. Such a sad time but I agree that listening to his music will heal. Hope you're doing ok mate ๐Ÿ™

Terrible Jim. He was a good mate and we'd shared some good times together, both on and off the stage, as recently as a few of weeks ago. He always spoke so highly of you and your involvement with his music. Still really digesting this - he hadn't been in a good place and it's just so upsetting. A great fella, an incredible guitar player and a terrific singer.

He was also a friend and a friend of France. A humble guy with enormous talent. I miss him already .๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”

So tragic. Mick was a great musician and great guy.

Oh that’s sad to hear. Saw him live a few times back in the day. Great musician. Will have another listen to Still The Flowers Bloom today.

That was such a good album, spent many hours listening to it when it came out. A genuinely nice guy. Such a loss.

So sad to hear this ๐Ÿ˜ฅ Loved “Flowers” and others of his I heard. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™ for family and friends as well as for those with similar anxiety. R.I.P.

The folks of the Central Coast can't believe it...he would fill to overflowing the Bateau Bay Pub when he returned home to play xx

Thinking of you Jim, Mick was so warm and genuine. Sending love ox

RIP Mick Hart. ๐Ÿ˜”

Nothing can replace his disappearance, but he left lasting memories for many of us, so if you would like to participate please click on the link below: ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ https://paypal.me/pools/campaign/114428210920088203 ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿผ And also I do not have the contacts of all his friends in France so especially do not hesitate to tag or share this status with people you know who could / would like to contribute.

Fresh out of High School and headed off for a career in music.

Anyone know which boat it was on? (Sorry. I love my vessels and I went on a few Harbour cruises with bands in my day)

Harbour cruise? Now there's one I missed in the yellow book.

Were you doing purely Farm/Oils songs back then, or covers as well?

from the looks of it i would say 77

Is that the gold top you are trying to get reunited with Jim?

Memories of my youth right there!

Very 70s beard.

I love that you are right under the life jackets, sorry once a lifeguard always a lifeguard LOL

Surfin with a spoon days Jim.

Just for a second I though that was Peter Green.

Gee, Rob hadn't got those crash cymbals up high yet. Somehow I hear you playing Used and Abused in this shot.

Great pic

Nice deluxe

Earliest version of the Boat to Goat on record?

I swear every picture of you looks different. The rest of the band all looks about the same, but Jim? Nah, no set look. It's gonna change

Jim Moginie, did you ever track down that Gold Top Gibson Les Paul Deluxe featured in this pic ?

The boat to the goat before the Powderworkers had a boat to the goat event.

So much handsomer these days

76? We saw you at Lane Cove Town Hall same year I think, and Pete had hair

Awesome

That's so cool...

Seamus you look like Ross Wilson Daddy Cool era

The rapscallion is back in town. We launched Freak Out at the Lansdowne last night with two sold out and socially distanced shows.

Thank you Jim Moginie And The Family Dog. I really enjoyed your show last night. Wonderful to see and hear live music in Sydney. Stay safe. Support Australian music ๐Ÿ‡ฆ๐Ÿ‡บ

And what a great launch it was. First time back at the Lansdowne for me for about 25 yrs! I saw 1/2 the Family dog play there several times in the late 80s/early 90s. Thanks Jim & the FD ๐Ÿ•

Thanks for a great night Jim. The band was amazing..... and not one folk song, ha. Live music is the best vaccine for all ailments

What a great Night attending the 10.30pm gig at The Lansdowne. ๐Ÿคฉ The ๐Ÿ• was off the leash! Four Oils classics, a Chicago great and Freak Out included in a powerful 1 hour 45 minute uninterrupted set made last night’s gig one we’ll never forget Adrian Adrianna Cook. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Thank you Jim, Kent, Tim and Paul for keeping live music alive. ๐ŸŽค๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐ŸŽธ๐Ÿฅ๐Ÿ• From little things...

Great song Jim! ๐Ÿ˜€ As a newbie who popped their ‘Dog cherry last night, I had a rollicking good time! Keen to help out next time a gig comes round! And just as an aside; I’m glad you found the harmonica! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

So great to hear you’ve been back on stage !!! Hope you guys can do a lot more now!!

Wonderful to see live music again Jim, thanks to you and the Dog for putting on a great show.

Love "Freak Out". Good luck with it.

Great show guys and good to be back in the Landsdowne after twenty years

Loved both shows and mix of songs ๐Ÿ‘

Curious to know the setlists!

Any chance of a Wollongong show, Jim? ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

I'd Love to see the Setlist Too, if Anyone has it???

A sad day for me. The master has gone. Julian Bream has died at his home in Wiltshire at the age of 87.
The virtuoso musician performed globally during his heyday, and was renowned for his recordings of new compositions and masterclasses.
He won four Grammy Awards and received 20 nominations between 1960 and 85.
A self-taught musician, Bream learned playing to radio dance bands with the lute his father bought from a sailor on London's Charing Cross Road in 1947 .
As a child prodigy, his early recitals led to him being "acknowledged as one of the most remarkable artists of the post-war era" , according to the Royal Academy of Music. After studying piano and composition at the Royal College of Music , and completing national service, he became one of the most prolific and best-selling recording artists in classical music.
He was made an OBE in 1964 and a CBE in 1985. His repertoire included new works by composers including Benjamin Britten, Sir William Walton and Sir Michael Tippett.
British cultural commentator and journalist Norman Lebrecht expressed his "sadness" at Bream's death.
Prestigious London venue Wigmore Hall called Bream "one of the greatest guitarists of all time" , adding: "Julian gave his first performance at Wigmore Hall in 1951. He will be greatly missed. RIP."
German classical guitarist Heike Matthiesen called the musician "My idol, my lifelong inspiration as musician and artist", while Helen Sanderson, director of National Youth Guitar Ensemble, said Bream was "my hero forever" .
Bream's passion for the Elizabethan lute resulted in him being given solo recitals in concert halls around the world, as well as programmes of poetry and music with the actress Dame Peggy Ashcroft. During the 1960s, he also founded the Julian Bream Consort a period-instrument ensemble with Bream as lutenist, putting the instrument firmly back on centre stage.
During a masterclass in California in 1991, he told the students : "Guitar was just a hobby, but it seemed to me that the instrument had possibilities, not least of which was that there was no one else playing it.
"I could be, as it were, the best boy in an all-girls school."

During a masterclass in California in 1991, he told the students : "Guitar was just a hobby, but it seemed to me that the instrument had possibilities, not least of which was that there was no one else playing it.

"I could be, as it were, the best boy in an all-girls school."
In 2008, he set up the The Julian Bream Trust to provide financial help for the less well-off, young and gifted music students, and to continue the work of commissioning new compositions for the guitar.
Bream told The Guardian in 2013 that he had to "renounce making music seriously" in 2011 after being knocked off his feet by a neighbour's dog while out walking.
He broke both hips and injured his left hand in the fall, but said: "There's nothing sad about not playing any more. The thing I feel a little annoyed about is that I know I'm a better musician than I was at 70, but I can't prove it."He added that he was still able to manage a few scales and arpeggios because "it's very good for one's brain and muscular system to work in harmony. If you keep up your playing it just keeps things ticking over".
Speaking about his career, he said: "I devoted my life to music for a reason, and the reason wasn't because I wanted to get on or make money, but to try to fulfil myself and also to give people pleasure. That's been my credo."

Hi Jim after reading your post this morning I went about my normal Saturday and first charity shop I went in I found a double cd of Julian bream the ultimate guitar collection so I thought I’d give it a go. I’d never heard of him until I read your post so this is my Sunday listening while my wife is at work

Can't say I even remotely heard of him. I will check him out. This was very interesting to read.

I felt a little sad as well. Like it was the end of an era

I get a sense his credo has rubbed off on you Jim.

Very sad news Jim. I saw him play when I lived in London. I think it was at Wigmore Hall. He was astonishing!

As a young classical guitar student, it was Julian Bream's beautiful tone & sensitive interpretations that most inspired me. Benjamin Britten's "Nocturnal after John Dowland", one of the most beautiful pieces of music for solo guitar, was written for him. RIP Julian Bream.

Lovely tribute, Jim. His music was the soundtrack to my childhood.

I had the pleasure of seeing him live at the Melbourne concert hall in 1986. One of the best concerts I ever went to.

In my ignorance, I'd not heard of him but thanks to your post, have had my horizons expanded.

Sorry to hear that Jim, did not know that much about him

Such a loss....

RIP Julian Bream. ๐Ÿ˜”

an inspiration

I saw a programme recently on BBC he was on there with John Williams UK guitarist about the 70s guitar era.. Not my usual fayre but intresting

It's a great song for sure. Let's hope it gets lots of radio play as this is well deserved :)

Today is #nationaltreeday. Iโ€™m next to a Moreton Bay Fig tree that was recently planted. Iโ€™ll never get to see it grow to maturity but thatโ€™s OK. Itโ€™s just good to know itโ€™s there doing itโ€™s thing. Shade, food and shelter for birds and insects, and looking good under all conditions. I grew up in Sydney with them all around and their majesty still never ceases to amaze me.
Especially the one on Razorback (which is no longer there) which bore the department store of Anthony Hordernโ€™s โ€˜While I Live Iโ€™ll Growโ€™. Our family would drive all the way from town on a Sunday just to gaze upon it.
Botanical notes:
Ficus macrophylla, commonly known as the Moreton Bay Fig, is a large evergreen banyan tree of the Moraceae family that is a native of most of the eastern coast of Australia, from the Atherton Tableland in the north to the Illawarra and Lord Howe Island. Its common name is derived from Moreton Bay in Queensland, Australia. It is best known for its beautiful buttress roots. Ficus macrophylla is a โ€œstrangler figโ€, it has an โ€œobligate mutualismโ€ with fig wasps and its roots are highly aggressive. Aborigines traditionally used the fibres for fishing nets. Nowadays, Ficus macrophylla is widely used as a feature tree in public parks and gardens in Australia and some other warmer climates such as California, Portugal, and Italy. Old specimens can reach notable size, over 30m tall or 40m in diameter, with rare individual trees reported to reach up to 60 m in height. @ Illawarra Grevillea Park

HeyJim Moginie ๐Ÿ™

I’m amongst many beautiful trees while I’m camping with my family in Pennsylvania, USA

Awesome information! Doc James "Jim" Moginie! Jim, by the way... I would like to know the reason why Midnight Oil never get involved with the trilogy "Music For Our Mother Ocean"? And another question....Wouldn't it be the moment we are in, opportune for a new trilogy "Music For Our Mother Ocean, IV, V and VI"?

One of my favourite quotes, taken in one of my favourite gardens, the Singapore Botanic Gardens.

what a wonderful write-up Jim Moginie - my own memories of Moreton Bay fig trees goes back to my youth way back in the 1950's, growing up near Lyne Park at Rose Bay, where there was a great parkland surrounded by many of these magnificent beauties just adjacent to Sydney Harbour - oh and remembering the "while I live I'll grow" tree too ... ๐ŸŒณ

I love that place, what those volunteers do is inspiring. And it’s so beautiful there.

They're a beautiful tree. There's a number of them around the grounds of the Royal Exhibition Building in Melbourne.

thing that gets me is how far the branches can reach out. The forces need to hold up the heavy branch are immense, real natural engineering feat thanks to Moreton

Love the massive ones on Moore Park golf course

Was it this kind of tree that was the inspiration for the cover of “the night garden”?

There's some lovely Moreton Bay Figs in Palermo Sicily

I was part of a small group that planted 1000 rainforest trees yesterday .. a perfect day to be outside and helping restore the Big Scrub in Northern NSW..let's hear it for the trees

So many wonderful memories of growing up under these magnificent trees Jim. I had the pleasure of playing in Southport’s most famous one when I was at Kindy. Thankfully we still have many of them around. ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’š

Jim, when Peter had his stint in politics we had him on the top of Razorback not far from the original Hordern tree which was the location of the King of the Mountain in the historic Goulburn to Sydney Bike race.

Living in Brisbane we have heaps up here - lovely big tree๐Ÿ˜

Love the Anthony Horderns Tree at Shellharbour

Adding to your already considerable legacy ...

Razorback Catherine Jamieson. Do you remember this tree?

Where's Razorback, Jim Moginie? Near Camden?

Check out the 2010 Qld film “The Tree” if you haven’t already.. good film..
