Do yourselves a favour....its a flippin good album

I love it! And I go more and more into 'Eternal Love' ... Just a little peak: The 3 EPs are soo individual that I would have loved a little break between them. Just a 3 Sec blind track to clear the ears... especially to rectify Tracks 4 and 5...

Very nice Mr Moginie. I am happy to have it in my collection. 👌🖐️

Been on repeat in my car ever since I got it Jim. That Bonfire is a cracking great song. 🧨🔥

As a Yarr Ngunawal man I always get a chuckle out of things like this.

Standing over the Hawkesbury

My ancestor got along with the aborigines on the river. . he was accused of witchcraft.

Funny

If you want to read a great book/diary that was written back then. Have a look at the Watkin Tench diaries. They are a great read and seem to be a truthful insight about the first fleets arrival.

I'm sure that the indigenous people arrived later...

It's true though, he didn't know it was there or what it was called. I am in Ireland at the moment, discovering and naming things.

The year after the First Fleet landed.

Here Jim, I’ll whitewash this history for you - “in 1789 local aboriginals were heard to profusely thank Governor Phillip for locating a large and useful source of water for them”. Now it’s perfectly white.

Wind in my head and Pikilyi my faves, Blood & Longing Neil’s new one is great, not to mention Motherland. You guys are just tearing it up!!!

Do you play on the album Jim? I’m sorry I missed the Album launch in Alice. I heard there was a gig the week before I arrived

And I am happy having one copy of this masterpiece over here. When friends ask this is my "Australian J. J. Cale album".

Beautiful album Jim. 👍💖

On a completely unrelated note - Jim, when are you going to play a gig in Scotland? I yearn for it!!!! 🙂

Delaunay. Colour theory ❤️ . This pic was taken in Lyon a couple of months ago when we were there to play at the Roman amphitheatre above the town. The idea of the history of Colour has long fascinated me, and where sound and colour meet in a heady collision to create a third happening: synaesthesia. Some people have acute synaesthesia and I met many doing our Colour Wheel shows a few years back. We’ve a few signed copies in of the LP and CD of ‘The Colour Wheel’ recorded live at the #sydneyoperahouse at the Reverberama online store.

Here's where my Oils/Moginie fandom meets my XTC/And Partridge fandom - at the intersection called synesthesia.

Jim Moginie, this is right! History and color theory are so great. I highly recommand this book as a start😀

My 'Oil' from last night. For some reason it looks just like an artwork 🙂 Thankyou for this wonderful series at MAGAM - truly magical.

Interesting Sound going on there! (Bring on November) 🎸🎼🎶

Gorgeous guitar!

Ross Hannaford would be proud mate

I have endured unimaginable things but that suffering also provided the opportunity to meet some wonderful caring Australians. Many thanks Jim Moginie for sharing my music.

Thank you Jim for this. He is right we are all the same. I have met a number of refugees over the years, there are good, bad, traumatised. The statistics speak for themselves, most (the majority) are legitimate refugees. Why would anyone risk life to leave a safe home? I'll stop there. Thanks for posting this.

Boss is Best

If you’re ever looking for a home for it you know where we are Jim 😉

Lovely ... AND Legacy

Well Used & Loved!

The Best of Both Worlds wobble!

Love this post, ultimate nerd school, got any more pics and stories of other guitar gear Jim? 😎

Sparked the sounds that sent shivers down our spines and moved a generation, Thanks 🙏

Lol.... love it

One more day of eating and sleeping Baawhawhawhawhawhawaaa?

Could utilize that pick for ur next album cover??

That sound - burned into my ears forever

Man!!! That is work of art! Beautiful shot,Jim.

Love Boss pedals...

should have bought yourself a Fender Twin Reverb that comes with vibrato. Worth a fortune these days!

That is your sound Jim Moginie. Here's my re-issue.

Nice! That's one well loved pedal. Jim, was this used on Armistice Day? Love the guitars on that..

The most beautiful example of entropy I've ever seen.

I'll give you $500 for it. lol jkjk

This is an incredible post!! But...what did you use BEFORE 1983?

Was this used in “Only the Strong?”

Classic! 😎👍🏻 I cringe every time I see one of these; I had a VB-2 as well as one of the old Spectrum Pedals, & sold them both for next to nothing (I think I actually gave the Spectrum away!). Both worth a fortune now.

New screensaver🖐

Spotted here with a few other well worn relics

Still safer than being Robs drum kit.

Vibrato???

Ruing the days when Perth felt far away from all these wonderful things ... now it's "if only" ...

Me too, sitting in the Northern hemisphere...

Greetings chaps have a good one :)

Oh so looking forward to it!

And I am sitting on the wrong side of the planet. Would love to listen to you playing "Tjungu" songs and others. <3

A shame I'm so far away in South Gippsland. I'm sure it will be 'calm and crystal clear'! Memories of Neil Murray and The Rain Makers touring with the Oils back in 1990.

That's going to be a great night!

Her conviction. Her Passion. Her Power to compel others to make a stand on a Global Scale. Absolutely awe inspiring 😍

I cried when she gave her speech We are lucky to have such an extraordinary human being to lead the way She is right - it shouldn’t be her but it is And I’m sorry for her that it is But she is incredible

This silly girl has been 1000% brainwashed... what the hell would she know about what controls the climate trends ? She's a jumped up little loudmouth ..

I always feel ashamed not being brave enough doing what she does. Absolutely stunning and memorable! Now we all need to take the action and continue what started in the wider sense (incl. adults) last Friday. I am relieved that someone from the MO space recognizes her - finally - because there must be / is that link that both parties stand for!

I love her. So many tiny righteous white men are putting her down in the most tiny way.

Yes!

She’s a hero for speaking absolute truth to absolute power. And the look she gave Trump was set to kill.

There has to be a song in this Jim. Incredible speech.

Is there a flower that expresses outrage?

ABC Goulburn Murray

Your guitars will work beatifull"💉

I love it....theres no stopping her

I prefer to listen and learn from professors of atmospheric gases and geology then a young girl

What a girl!! and I really loved the look she had when she saw Trump!!!

Little legend

Okay, Janina Palmer, would you share a counterpoint to even just one thing Greta said, about those present and their collective response to A.C.C.?

The motel of lost companions waits with heated pool and bar. Neil Young got that right. I took the photo on my old Nikon 35mm film camera on a timer. Blast from the past and an existential moment rolled into one. Boston 1990 methinks. #midnightoilband ... See MoreSee Less

Loving the H&C t shirt there Jim 🙂

1990. The posters have you in blue shirt & white(ish) jeans, swinging the Villager 12 & generally looking like a true blue author of verse & melody.

I know that band shirt too. Hunters ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Beatific wings in the aroma of the past

The support band merch t-shirts come in handy when the washing is on.

Not a Ramada Inn?

You look as if you want to be with a cinnamon girl.

Very atmospheric. Love it.

Climate strike today. Its because our kids are terrified of a future where nothing is being done by our leaders (et al) to slow down this onrushing climate emergency that it is happening. And schools should teach children to try and make a difference in the world by standing up and calling out wrongdoing. So it should be called an ‘authorized absence’ SCOMO (et al), like you get when your parents wrote a note to say you’re sick or such. I would have thought the threat of extinction is more important than just having a cold.
I commend you to listen to The 1975, link in bio or open.spotify.com/track/1E0WHM7g26mSxhgTq16KF3?si=y8JuHmOsT0CXDjBlrZMyXw

Grade 8 Gap High students are way smart already

Thanks Jim Moginie - shared 👌

U-18's only school kids gigs please

Thanks Jim

Thanks for your support🖐

The spike starts at the beginning of the industrial revolution. Unless you call that a naturally occurring climate cycle, we should take responsibility for the situation we now find ourselves in and work collectively toward more sustainable energy sources. No blame aimed anywhere, just an acknowledgement that we have a problem and should act responsibly to address it. Politicians don’t listen so protests become necessary. If I was 15 today, I’d be worried and I’d certainly be remembering the current government inaction when I got my chance to vote in a few years time.

I'll be authorizing an absence in Boston. Proud of my 16 year old son and his friends for taking a stand.

Really hope the Oils write a song to encourage these kids further and let them know that we are behind them. A school near to where I live will be have hundreds attend the protest today, yet here in western Sydney, kids at my school are all still here. The good part these days is that environmental education is part of our syllabuses.
