Would love to, but Canada is a bit of a jaunt away. Bark Overtures is officially a modern classic in my books. Can’t stop listening!!

Got my bodies sorted Jim. See you there! 👍👍

Can you provide baby sitting backstage? 😂 its a no this time from me I am afraid

Looking forward to Rock Heaven at The Brightside

I wish!!!

See you at the Sol Bar!

I wish

Please come to North Carolina. Our live music scene sucks.

Honoured to have this total legend supporting our Qld and Byron Bay Family Dog shows (link in bio) this weekend...BEN ELY (solo).
Ben is generally known for his work with the band REGURGITATOR and other various projects over the years (Pangaea, Brokenhead, The Stalkers, Jump to Light Speed, Radio 5…) although over the last few years has spent a large amount of time writing and recording material for contemporary dance and theatre shows. He has also chanelled that energy into solo performances and tow resulting albums - the more recent STRANGE TALES OF DRUGS & LOST LOVE and the debut release GOODBYE MACHINE. Over the past 3 years as well as semi-regular solo shows he has also embarked on a national tour with Dan Kelly as well as played at Island Vibe and Dashville Skyline festivals.
After spending 16 years living in the southern capital cities Ben relocated back to his home town of Brisbane at the start of 2016. Driving around the city visiting certain locations of the inner city brought back recollections and feelings of events that took place in his youth. Flashbacks of stage diving for the first time at St Pauls Tavern in Spring Hill... his first girlfriend getting possessed by the Devil out at Capalaba... getting into car chases with violent bouncers in Red Hill... and many other bizarre events that now seem like an entire life time away. These stories made their way subconciously into songs that composed the album STRANGE TALES OF DRUGS & LOST LOVE.
Prior to that with GOODBYE MACHINE… Ben collected many lyrical ideas in a strange kind of therapy that reflected his discomfort with government, state of the environment, and our place as human beings in this world. Gathering up these sketches he retreated to a studio to the West of Brisbane City called Wild Mountain Sound. Over a time frame of 3 days with the assistance of Jamie Trevaskis, Ben tracked 11 songs straight to 2 inch tape without the use of a computer. No mobile phone could gain reception and a complete focus of attention was achieved. Cut off from the world, Goodbye Machine came to life.
Enjoy listening… find yourself in the solitude of the wood grain.

C’mon Powderworkers. Go and see Jim and the Family Dog 🐕 because they’re great. I saw them blow the roof off Marrickville Bowlo and had the honour and privilege of meeting them after the gig. Tell your family, tell your friends, tell your family dog to see Jim Moginie and the Family Dog 🐕 at a venue near you. As the other man in the hat would say, “Do yourself a favour” and go and see the Family Dog 🐕 in Queensland or anywhere else on their Summer of the Dog tour. Don’t forget to buy a t-shirt, Bark Overtures on CD or vinyl and Jim’s other amazing CDs available at the merchandise stand. I promise you’ll remember it for the rest of your life. PS You may even see a famous face or two in the crowd. #mogenius #jimmogonieandthefamilydog #barkovertures #summerofthedogtour #lovethedog

Trying to make the Bright side. Anyone else. Marrickville was awesome.

You may even get the privilege of helping pack the family truckster after the show...

Get to a show! Don’t make the Jim Moginie and the Family Dog gig the best gig you NEVER saw in 2018!!

Jim it's great to be part of your social media . As an overseas fans it brings your music closer for all to enjoy! Many thanks !

Way to go Hamish Christie!!!

Well done Hamish 😎 Nice one.

Jim, is only thanking me for sharing this. I had nothing to do do with the Auslan version of Forgotten Years. Nevertheless I am happy to talk about this and share it around and even will arrange to meet the interpreter in the very near future.

Well done, Hamish!!

Nice one Hamish Christie 😃👍

Hey Jeremy, that's Julia.

Awesome now for a sign interpreter at the next round of concerts

Great stuff Hamish

Poetry in motion... literally!

That's so cool. I took ASL last year, it's absolutely beautiful.

Very cool and a nice shout out!

I actually cried through that video, music touches all corners and effects all senses. Much love and respect ✊

Music has no boundaries, this is fantastic

Fantastic to all involved! Bring on more I say!

Thanks Jim, Tim, Kent & Paul for giving us your time to sign CDs, albums, posters, having photos with your fans and general conversations. Thanks for the music, laughs and good times. Until next time, GO THE DOG!!! 🐶🐾

Thanks for another incredible weekend of music Jim. The great venue made it all the more special. Catch you in Brisvegas Friday night. 🐾🐾

Thanks very much Jim, absolutely loved it! Hearing you launch into Aqualung at the soundcheck was pretty cool too.

Great pic of an awesome gig

Will we see any live recordings for those of us unable to attend?

Would love to see you guys out in central west NSW

Any chance of being able to pick up a signed vinyl at one of the gigs please Jim?

Got my tee at Marrickville. Forgot to get the CD. I went iTunes. I must be the only Powderworker without a signed one!

I'm probably going to have to get a couple of things for myself to make it worth the shipping 😁

I wrote a note I the comments when ordering and he signed the CD for me! Still loving the album 👍 As said before very friendly and has time to talk after the shows if he can.

I'm waiting for the post office to deliver me 😁👍

Still waiting on the band camp order.

Or through my letterbox this morning! Cheers Jim!

What do you say about this bloke Neil Murray? For one, he is supporting us at The Karova Lounge in Ballarat tonight. Two, he has penned a catalog of definitive Australian songs that have and will still stand the test of time: Eddie Mabo, Native Born, Good Light in Broome, Whispering Casuarinas, Blackfella Whitefella, Anywhere Tonight. Another was sung at The 2000 Olympics by Christine Anu (My Island Home), he was part of the legendary aboriginal/white fella Warumpi band from Papunya. A teacher, a bard and a speaker of Western Desert languages. We have cooked up a few things over the years that I (and I hope he) am really proud of. Including a beautiful one long in gestation and coming out soon, with Neil and Western Desert guitar king Sammy Butcher called Tjungkutu (Still Together). He still operates out there somewhere on that long dusty road, and writes books, poems and songs of great authenticity and quality. As one of Australia’s treasures and as a trusted friend it will be great to have him onboard tonight as the Summer of The Dog wends it’s way to Ballarat.

It is said you can bump into half of Australia’s music community at any given time if you push a trolley around the Coles in Northcote. Therefore, the Family Dog and I will play some tunes tonight at Northcote Social Club. Reason enuff. Come on down Melbourne, a few tickets are left on the door or book at
www.eventbrite.com/e/jim-moginie-the-family-dog-tickets-50844508293
...or if you know me hit me up!
It will be lovely to see you one and all and we’ll sign albums etc afterwards and I dearly love playing with this amazing band. ❤️ JimJim Moginie & The Family Dog.

Paul Loughhead (The Celibate Rifles, The New Christs, Ed Kuepper & The AInts)
Kent Steedman (The Celibate Rifles, Tubular Greens, Modern Gong Ritual).

It's a SUPERGROUP. But we've been playing on and off for 12 years! It's true, we have many bands but in DOG, we trust.

We also have 3 Victorian shows this weekend as part of the SUMMER OF THE DOG tour, playing songs from our back pages and those from our new snazzily named LP ‘Bark Overtures’.

‘Moginie, of course, is the antithesis of flashiness, preferring instead to let his music do the talking and ..there's a great blend of surf sounds, psychedelic indulgences and good old fashioned groove. It's a diverse, rollicking album’ SMH

Shameless Plug for our show this Saturday in Ballarat. ‪End the year right.
SAT 8 DEC - KAROVA LOUNGE, BALLARAT‬
tickets.oztix.com.au/?Event=94466.
Supported by legendary songman #neilmurray.
The Dog is bringing it’s brand of space rock to your town so we need you Ballarat, on the anniversary of the Eureka Rebellion.
The Eureka flag has been appropriated by certain groups, but the real history is fascinating, and the resulting laws saw the colony grow into a nation. I quote: ‘December 3, 1854) in which gold prospectors in Ballarat, Victoria, Australia—who sought various reforms, notably the abolition of mining licenses—clashed with government forces. It was named for the rebels’ hastily constructed fortification in the Eureka goldfield. The rebellion was the culmination of long-standing grievances on the part of the miners, or “diggers,” over exorbitant prospecting-license fees, brutal police procedures for collecting those fees, lack of the vote, and lack of representation in the Legislative Council. While Charles J. La Trobe, the lieutenant governor of Victoria who had introduced the license fee in 1851, pressed the Legislative Council for reform on these issues, the diggers underwent increased harassment by the police and responded with greater militancy. The murder of a digger named James Scobie in October 1854 and the acquittal of his alleged killers by a government board of inquiry further inflamed the situation. Demonstrations and clashes with the police followed. On November 11 the diggers formed the Ballarat Reform League to petition the new lieutenant governor Charles Hotham for redress of their grievances. Although Hotham’s response was promising, the arrival of troop reinforcements on November 28 led to further clashes. On November 30 many of the diggers organized themselves into military companies and elected Peter Lalor, one of the Reform League’s representatives, as their commander in chief. Work then began on the stockade. Troops and police surrounded the 150 diggers who were within the structure on December 3. After refusing to come out, the diggers opened fire on the government forces. The ensuing battle lasted for 15 minutes, with the miners defeated conclusively’.

Buy a 🎫 to as many upcoming 🐕 gigs as you can music lovers because you will love them. I saw them at Marrickville Bowlo last Saturday night with my best mate Adrian Adrianna Cook and they were absolutely magnificent. I also had the privilege and honour to meet the band members and have them autograph my vinyl copy of Bark Overtures. They are a wonderful group of man and very appreciative of their audience. So don’t forget to buy a 🎫 to an upcoming 🐕 give for a great night of Oz rock. #mogenius #barkovertures #summerofthedogtour #lovethedog

If you're in Ballarat or Melbourne, get there. A great show last Saturday night at the Marrickville Bowlo. New Dog songs, old Jim songs (eg from Alas Folkloric) and a sprinkling of Oils for good measure. Enjoy.

I want more Dog. That sounds so wrong but regrettably time and circumstance won’t allow me another me the opportunity to see you guys again this tour. For those who do, enjoy - it is awesome!

Gershwin Room Matt Evans, Pesky McNuggets, Michael Chadwick, Rodney Apcar, Nat de P, Chris Bond, Mish Cat, Sean Seeliger

If you want some colour shots, swing past my joint on the way to the way to the Espy.

Shady looking crew🥰 sounds good

Bring the Dog to Europe next year. You can support yourself. See you at Brixton and hopefully the Emerald Isle too

A wonderful band of others.

Great timing! This is my last week in Melbs before moving back to Sydney!!!

Look like mug shots

What an awesome band!!

...and don't forget the marvellous band CRENT that Kent was a member. What a great sound they had. Who can forget the classic "Greiner is a...."? Gold!

Enjoy.

Wow that's gonna be awesome. I was having a drink with Paul's wife Robyn last night. He's a nice fella.

really looking forwards to friday Night 🙂

Great, will see you guys at Dee Why !!!!!!! So excited.

Im off to Ballarat to see you guys this weekend! Cant wait!

I love these! 😂 Almost as much as the album, almost. We need a special edition of Bark Overtures after the tour with all these shameless plugs tacked on the end! Lol

Ur love for the Portuguese turn Hawaiian instrument continues Jim. Four strings of magic

The uke! LOL

Sydney certainly was stonking! The show at Marrickville Bowlo last Saturday was stella.

Exceptionally brilliant plug Mogenius! 😍

blues power

At first I thought it said “shameless pug”. Guess I got the dogs on the brain.

There is still time to get that real job! Just sayin

Too bloody good mate! 💜T

Sounds like a great weekend🔥 wish I was there 🎸

You're a true blue ledge Jim! Love it mate!

He's going down to Espy take his rider by his side

The Melbourne Blues. 🙂

Your one crazy cat jim 😎

Love it

I loved it at the Bowlo on Sat night. Kent singing it in sound check soothed his soul. Good therapy!

Needed this, thanks! Well done. May the Summer of the Dog successfully roll on! ☮️🎶💜T

This is great

Thanks Jim, one for a great gig last Saturday night and two for taking the time to chat to this dope in the locker room at the Bowlo before your gig when most probably you were just trying to get a couple of minutes to yourself. You impressed me as a real gentleman.

That's one sturdy chair

Loved your Marrickville Bowlo 🐕 gig last Saturday night. I’m really happy...

Stephen Bock

Catchy tune. Had me singing along. Everyone wants to be Happy.

Love it 😊 Well done and such a catchy son it’s awesome 👏

I want a fireman’s hat too

Great to see you at the Marrickville Bowlo and thanks for signing the cd!

Looking forward to welcoming you to Vic 🎸😀

That’s totally awesome guys...

Yes...a single! Love it.

LOVE your happy....How much we all need your happy. 🤩
