Thankyou Jim and the Oils. An awesome experience and such a contrast to the GCT gig I went to at the Big Pineapple

Fantastic So disappointed I couldn’t be there

It was fantastic. Of course there is that song by the Proclaimers. I would walk 500 miles. Well I just drove 2000 kilometres And now I’ll drive 2000 more. And so on...

Fantastic article. Shame it was the Australian .... Murdoch rag

Awesome Jim. Amazing location, good luck with the gig!

We have been compiling an intro tape as a playlist on Spotify, something to do on all the trains we have been on criss crossing sweltering Europe. It's of the great protest songs written over the decades, ones from our childhood and today. They say modern music is all nursery rhymes and auto tune but it isn’t true. It’s a tradition that should be celebrated, send suggestions for more, check it out here. Link in bio or open.spotify.com/user/1251098182/playlist/48EPevCQm3zsgDVpNr3gGf?si=efjs7MIeSvemd4mcKpVggA ...

'Deportees' – Mick Thomas covering the classic Woody Guthrie song, adding a topical verse of his own. I can't find this version online, although I have it, and was privileged to hear him perform it on tour a few years back.

Great playlist! Here’s a few more from the Australian Music Vault ‘Agents of Change’ playlist. https://open.spotify.com/user/tenmigaht7yr60blhlupg58g4/playlist/7hCsupuoRGAX1ylwUUgWvg?si=0xU99FmQTSqm2HCo1GW4jQ

Jim “Armstrong” John Stewart Also sung by Australian Reg Lindsay

Jim. Amazing set list from the BRB tonight. Loved tin legs. And everything else, some songs are just extra special though. I know that’s off topic but you guys topped off an amazing three days of music. Didn’t see a bad act. The version of treaty with Busby Maru was delightful. See you in Brisbane 2/8/19 with the pub choir and family dog.

Been listening to it at work. I’m loving the playlist!! Two additional suggestions: Marvin Gaye: Mercy Mercy Me and What’s Going On.

My favs in the list: Revolution, War, Strange Fruit, Thou Shalt Not Steal, Eve of Destruction, I Am Women, This Land is Your Land, Fight The Power, Desolation Row, From Little Things, Gottta Serve Somebody, Fortunate Son, Get Up Stand Up, Give Peace a Chance, Won't Get Fooled Again, Respect, Holiday in Cambodia, War Pigs, Guns of Brixton, Eton Rifles, Something in the Air, Solid Rock, Blackfella/Whitefella, I Was Only 19, God Save the Queen, Generals and Majors..no way...(what we need is a...)Melting Pot! Sunday Bloody Sunday, Masters of War, Children of the Revolution, Talkin' Bout a Revolution, We have Survived, Treaty, In the Ghetto, Russians, Don't Tear it Down, Two Tribes, Rockin in the Free World, Rock the Casbah, Ghost Town, We Shall Overcome....shows how many powerful tunes are out there that shape us :-o

http://www.openculture.com/2018/12/david-byrne-curates-a-playlist-of-great-protest-songs-written-over-the-past-60-years.html

How about some Neil Murray with Sammy Butcher. Great new album from one of Australia's finest! Plus a certain MO shredder!

'Hope Street' – The Levellers, also covered by Billy Bragg https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZDjdHe6U3Mo

Father Ted is one of the best sitcoms ever made. I hope there is a techno remix of Ted and Dougal saying those lines. "Careful now" *DJ scratch* "Down With This Sort Of Thing" *Huge drop*.

Really solid list of songs there Jim!

Great list. I would add the Call’s The Walls Came Down and Bruce Cockburn’s If I Had A Rocket Launcher.

Jim Cuyahoga REM I’ll talk to Micheal re a Co - Headline world tour with the Oils You guys decide where to donate the “loot” Two of the most trustworthy bands going around

Alabama, Southern Man, pretty much the entirety of Living With War or The Monsanto Years all by Neil Young.

'Sisters of Mercy' – Weddings Parties Anything

Father Ted!

That would be an ecumenical matter.

https://youtu.be/FkHCaH-rt5M A classic of its time πŸ˜‰

This is not America (Bowie/Metheny)

Lol Father Ted!

wheres spider baby?

Cows with guns

Neil Young’s Alabama. And sinead’s blackboys on mopeds

Gary Clark, Jr's 'This Land' is incredibly relevant and powerful. https://open.spotify.com/track/0Jxl1PdSbiQPYRPVdzBdES?si=nDKkZO2XR9aaSb1dDn0IjQ

So happy to see that the Only 19 is the Herd mix with John Schuman....showing the everlasting relevance

Nice one. While not a protest song I often like to put on Crowded House “Transit Lounge” while waiting in the Qantas lounge

I think the two most trenchant anti-war sons ever written are The Bravery of Being Out of Range by Roger Waters and War Pigs by Black Sabbath. The cowardice of war makers very bitterly exposed in both. Also would be good to see The Phillip Ruddock Blues by This is Serious Mum added. A fine unpicking of the viciousness of neo-liberal conservatism in Australia.

It's a great mix! It lacks “Scatterlings of Africa“ or have I overseen it ?

Great to see some Billy Bragg on there. I’ve always thought Help Save the Youth of America was pretty strong. Also Waax FU and Thelma Plumb Better in Blak are strong new releases and great examples of a new loud female voice coming through.

Thanks for adding New Model Army :)!

War Plan Red , Peter Perrett.. brilliant album too

Spy vs Spy, Don’t Tear it down, Sallie Anne

Ben Harper’s ‘Excuse Me Mr’, and ‘Fight For Your Mind’

Billy Bragg got a good run but I’d have included “It Says Here” too

Comfortably numb is a protest song?

Been loving the intro tape playlist Jim, some great tracks and some surprises, New Model Army fantastic! Didnt know they were on your radar. May in suggest some Blyth Power to you :)

WOW, quite a selection!!! Many to discover. Cannot hear preview though..yet?

Great list! Following.

Nice! Thanks for sharing.

Awesome list. How about Johnny Clegg (R.I.P.) “One (Hu)man One Vote and Bruce Cockburn’s “Trouble With Normal” or If I Had a Rocket Launcher

That pic Jim, are those Weiwei’s sunflower seeds on the floor?

Hmm, I did not see anything from Midnight Oil.

Wow

Hopefully we will hear “The times they are changing” and hopefully in the right direction.. A change to acceptance and embracing difference.

Strange times we are having here in the US. It's embarrassing.

Thanks for all the gigs! Watching you doing some jumps during the songs was such a joy- you had so much fun. And we had fun too! Safe travels to Birdsville!

Living at the opposite side of the planet I never knew anything about the Tarkine rainforest. Now I do. What a wonderful poetry and beautiful tunes this marvellous song contains! We hope it will help to preserve this unique area. Thank you for that and for your musical ride through Western Europe. It was a great pleasure for us to welcome you to Trier and Mainz, both shows were absolutely hot. Hope to see you back here soon again. All the very best to you, keep on rocking. πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

Excellent. Cover plates is the preferred term though. I have what is probably the world's largest photographic collection of cover plates, taken in hundreds of cities and towns in dozens of countries since 1983.

Adelaide hills today; inspiration and imitated in honour of the 'Jim Moginie Sewer Covers' refined EU collection, circa 2019

The French ones fascinated me, lots of shots.

...I'd take some printing ink...roll it over them...lay some shirts or material over and press like mad...and of course, clean up after yourself in an environmentally friendly manner...these products could deliver, for you, some nice cash pound notes!

I also love shooting sewer covers!

So cool

Here's one you missed from England or is the UK no longer part of Europe because of Brexit

This one is missing .... Jim .... Gelsenkirchen πŸ–οΈπŸ–οΈ

Melancholic in Paris

You should start a sewer cover band !

If you put your ear to a sewer cover, you can hear Donald Trump talking.

Fantastic playlist. Thanks for sharing Jim. Great to see XTC Generals and Majors.... Melt the Guns is another poignant one of theirs

Great list. I would add: Requiem for the Masses—The Association If I Had a Rocket Launcher—Bruce Cockburn Maman—Mata Hari cast album The Assistant Undersecretary of State for Human Rights—Rap Master Ronnie cast album Zombie—The Cranberries I Ain't Marchin' Anymore—Phil Ochs

Nice to see The Kinks included too! πŸ‘

Love to see RATM, SOAD, and Dropkick Murphys in there! New Model Army are a serious omission, though!

Always an education JM of MO & OZ

What a top playlist! No Oils? No Xavier Rudd? 😊

Foodie heaven. Did you get up the top to the cathedral?

Hi Jim Moginie, It was a huge performance, thanks guys for the show. See you on the next tour. Keep on being awsome

Looks so cool. Wish they could have had a complete set. Sucks for the fans and you guys.

Leaving the toms at home helps for sure

I played drums in school bands and held the sticks a bit like that. I peaked then!

Luv the T shirt!

Nice. You all should record as a hootenanny, You on Drums, Rob on Guitar, Martin on Bass, Peter on Keyboard, Bones on Guitar.

Yeah. I tried singing and drumming together once. It did not go well.

Solid advice πŸ‘πŸ»

Best not. Leave it to the expert!!! πŸ˜‚

It's all about feel and groove, just ask McCartney

Does rob know your playing with his drum kit Jim?

You could make music with your toothbrush Mr Mogenius

Hey nice try tho. I recognise that snare too.

I’m the opposite. I’m a guitar playing drummer and have to do the same

holding the sticks , military drummer style ?!? Yeah !! It's a LONG way to Birdsville .. πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸΎ

Took me a while...

Are those metal sidewalks, or possibly something for catching any run off, maybe there is a sewer system below. Either way it's something I've never seen before.

...I think I'll apply that into acrylic...interesting...

The shadow is black,the pavement is white
