About

You may recall the band ‘Midnight Oil’ from the mid 1980s, they sold millions of records and had a few hits world wide. On their 1987 album, they featured an image of an old stone country house, which is an iconic representation of the band’s commitment to aboriginal awareness. In 1986, Midnight Oil went on tour to play for some of the aboriginal tribes in the northern part of Australia. Upon seeing the poverty and conditions in which the aboriginal people lived, the band was so angered it immensely inspired their next album “Diesel and Dust.” Producing hits such as, ‘The Dead Heart’ and ‘Beds are Burning,’ Midnight Oil helped spread awareness of the treatment of aboriginal people in Australia.
