Australia's politically-charged '
Midnight Oil has just released its best ,
album so far this year. Only one word
can describe the music and lyrics on
the 10-song LP Diesel and Dust
potent. This is the band s sixth record .
but only its third U.S. release.
The Oilers use a double guitar
attack of Jim Moginie and Martin
Rotsey and a compact rhythm section
of bassist Peter Gifford and drummer
Rob Hirst to produce infectious
melodies and a resounding beat that
allow charismatic lead singer Peter -Garrett
to take on the problems of
Australia and the world.
Midnight Oil is political without
being pretentious. The Oilers' ego
never rises above its desire to write
great music and improve life on
To understand the problems of its
country's first inhabitants, the band
toured some of the Australian abo-
rigines' remote communities in the
Northern Territory. The first song of
the album, "Beds Are Burning," asks
the Australian government and
people to return land back to the "
aborigines. "The time has come to say
fair's fair, to pay the rent, to pay our '
share ... it belongs to them, let's give
it back." The song "Dead Heart"
describes the spirit and perseverance
of the people. "We carry in our hearts
the true country and that cannot be
Much had been said about the twin
cyclonic guitar attack of Moginie and
Rotsey as well as the passionate voice
of Garrett, but Hirst is the core of
the band. Recognized as Australia's
best drummer for seven years run
ning, Hirst could also hold the title
of the world's premier beatkeeper. He
shifts the Oilers into fast and slow
speeds flawlessly on "Put Down That
Weapon," a song in which Garrett
pleas for nuclear disarmament, and
rips and rocks throughout the rest of
While Midnight Oil has not come
anywhere close to reaching the
amount of success in the U.S. as it
has in Australia, the members are
hoping their music can speak to
people of all nations. Hirst says
Midnight Oil wants "to write Aus
tralian music, which people overseas
could get into and understand, which
would enlarge their whole vision of
Australia past vegimite sandwiches
and kangaroo hops." Diesel and Dust
should do that. If this album isn't in
your record collection, it ought to be.
