Midnight Oil split after their last show on the Capricornia tour in 2002. The band formed as The Farm in 1972 with Rob Hirst, Andrew James and Jim Moginie. They recruited ANU student Peter Garrett as their singer and then when Garrett moved to Sydney in 1976 to study law the band changed its name to Midnight Oil.
Midnight Oil was complete when guitarist Martin Rotsey joined in 1977. The group were pioneers of independent music, forming their own label Powderworks and then releasing their debut album on their own label in 1978.
‘Head Injuries’, the second album was a platinum album in Australia, 1981’s ‘Place Without A Postcard’ sold double platinum and then the big one came with ‘10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1’ in 1982 selling 7x platinum in Australia.
1984’s ‘Red Sails In The Sunset’ was another 4x platinum seller in Australia then ‘Diesel and Dust’ happened and Midnight Oil broke worldwide.
‘Diesel and Dust’ was a million seller in the USA and the follow-up ‘Blue Sky Mine’ also sold Gold for the band stateside making them Australia’s biggest rock export at the time.
The last Midnight Oil album ‘Capricornia’ was released in 2002.
Further Midnight Oil dates will be revealed at 9am Friday 17 February 2017.
