SPECIES DECEASES (GOLD SERIES CD)

SPECIES DECEASES (GOLD SERIES CD)

by Midnight Oil
$9.95

Released in 1985 Species Deceases was Midnight Oil's second four-track EP. Stand out tracks include "Progress" - a fine guitar anthem with tons of solid riffs, and "Hercules" - exciting dynamics, a nice singalong chorus, and even some backwards guitars on the fade.

REDNECK WONDERLAND (GOLD SERIES CD)

REDNECK WONDERLAND (GOLD SERIES CD)

by Midnight Oil
$9.95

 

This release is very much a response to the Australian political landscape of its time. With race and immigration issues dominant, then and today, Midnight Oil re-name Australia as something less than grand, Redneck Wonderland. Beneath the gun-toting kangaroo on the cover, you'll find a fortified, biting Midnight Oil. The title track is worth its weight in gold, while other stand-out moments include White Skin Black Heart and Safety Chain Blues. Fierce and true of heart, the Oils have never sounded better.

RED SAILS IN THE SUNSET (GOLD SERIES CD)
The sails refer to the shell-like roof of the Sydney Opera House. They're red because they're glowing - glowing in the aftermath of a nuclear blast, as the cover art so blatantly depicts. The amazing, futuristic artwork is by Japanese artist Tsunehisa Kimura, and its themes are echoed in tracks like Harrisburg (the plant is burning down ... you cannot get out) and When Generals Talk. Also includes the stomping Best Of Both Worlds.

PLACE WITHOUT A POSTCARD (GOLD SERIES CD)

 

I can’t believe the perfect family on my colour TV. If I don’t make it to the top it’ll never bother me.' Ah, but make it to the top they did, and with grace and integrity. This is vintage Oils, with the unforgettable title track dominating the show. Don't Wanna Be the One (from which the above lyrics were taken) is a stomper, while Lucky Country tells it like it is.

Already well on their way to becoming one of the best live acts this country has ever produced, Midnight Oil released this debut disc on their own, newly-formed label, Powderworks, in 1978.

A sense of urgency underlines this release. Recorded in Sydney in 1979, the power of Head Injuries remains undiminished. The biting No Reaction and Cold Cold Change are stand-out moments, but the centrepiece has got to be Section 5 (Bus To Bondi). You can't hop on a bus to Sydney's most famous beachside suburb without humming it. Classic, timeless Midnight Oil - a must-have release.

CAPRICORNIA (GOLD SERIES CD)

CAPRICORNIA (GOLD SERIES CD)

by Midnight Oil
$9.95

 

Since 1990's benchmark Blue Sky Mining disc, Australian agitprop rockers Midnight Oil have arguably functioned better in theory than in practice. You can't nitpick the band's politics--however left they may lean, they are at their core humanist--but while theirs is a noble cause, music, at its core, is entertainment. Tough talk about land misappropriated from aboriginals is just not what most folks crave day after day, record after record. While no one will walk away from Capricornia confusing Midnight Oil with knuckleheads like Sum 41, most will notice an appreciable softening of the edges, especially musically. Songs like the outstanding "Tone Poem," though lyrically driven by sobering ecological questions, is also notable for a bridge and chorus built on a chiming, instantly memorable guitar part. Similarly, "Under the Overpass" drapes a snippet of melody from Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" over a springy keyboard bit that Brian Wilson might have fashioned for a top-down corker. Capricornia--its title track buoyed by one of the Oil's most insistent choruses--is a rock record, but it's one with more settings than "pummel."

This long-surviving, quintessential Australian band has always been a multi-faced beast. This is not the rollicking, angry Oils we’re used to. Breathe sees Midnight Oil take a more subtle approach, without sacrificing any of the power that made them great. Country flavours dominate in One Too Many Times, while melody and rhythm meld in Underwater. The gorgeous Surf Up Tonight hints quietly at their roots, while other highlights include Gravelrash, Time To Heal and the mesmerising refrain of Star Of Hope. Country queen Emmylou Harris makes a guest appearance.

BLUE SKY MINING (GOLD SERIES CD)

Midnight Oil sing about yellow bellied black snakes and Peter Brock on King Of The Mountain, one of their most rockingly striking tunes to date. It’s worth getting this disc just for that track, but there’s heaps more here, such as Shakers And Movers, Antarctica and the song which gives the disc its name. Indispensable Oils.

'Bird Noises' reached the Top 30 on the Australian Singles Chart. The EP "continued the development heard on [their previous album], with 'No Time for Games' and 'I'm the Cure' being particularly impressive. It also boasted the anomalous, but delightful Shadows-like instrumental 'Wedding Cake Island'

This early Midnight Oil release contains many of the songs and stances which they would come to be identified with. A political album, the most unconservative Oils stomp their way through the incendiary US Forces and Power And The Passion. The intense Short Memory tells of their anti-war agenda, while Only the Strong remains one of their most potent tracks. Unbelievably excellent.

Released in 2002, Capricaornia saw Midnight Oil move to a stripped back sound, with acoustic and clean electric guitars dominating the sound of the album (Golden Age, Luritja Way, Under the Overpass), although some tracks (Too Much Sunshine, Mosquito March, Poets and Slaves) feature significant distorted guitars. These latter tracks also feature distorted vocals. The album also features a short piano solo track (A Crocodile Cries) in the middle of the record, the melody of which is reprised for the album closing Poets and Slaves.

The track Say Your Prayers, which appears on US version of the album and was one of the four new tracks on The Real Thing, has been included on this newly sequenced track listing, only for the vinyl release.

Red Sails in the Sunset was released in October 1984 under the Columbia Records label. It was recorded and produced in Tokyo, Japan and is significant for becoming their first No. 1 album in Australia. The cover image, by Japanese artist Tsunehisa Kimura, depicts Sydney Harbour after a hypothetical nuclear strike. Some of its tracks were performed live in January 1985 at a Sydney Harbour Goat Island concert to celebrate radio station Triple J's 10th birthday.

$42.99
Still recording on their own Powderworks label, Midnight Oil broke through to commercial success in their native Australia with their second album, Head Injuries, which, like their debut, was a record full of tightly arranged, furiously played and sung, fast-paced rock & roll numbers. Lead singer Peter Garrett, singing angry, sometimes politically oriented (but not, at least to international listeners, entirely clear) lyrics, took a backseat to the guitar work of Jim Moginie and Martin Rotsey and especially to the driving drumming of Rob Hirst. Head Injuries was a stirring collection that served notice Midnight Oil was ready to compete beyond the borders of Australia.

The single "Truganini" referenced multiple issues, including the 'last' Tasmanian Aboriginal, the treatment of indigenous artist Albert Namatjira, the Australian flag debate, and republicanism.
An album dear to many a heart, Earth and Sun and Moon is riff-laden and melodic, powerful and subtle, quintessentially Australian and universal. All at the same time. Behold the amazing “Renaissance Man”, “Outbreak Of Love” and the excellent title track “Earth and Sun and Moon”.
