Midnight Oil

Midnight Oil

Curses - you're right. I have a preposterous number of old VHS tapes with film clips recorded in the eighties, and which I discovered today I had written contents lists for at some stage (clearly nothing better to do at the time!) and came across this one on a list. Not being in a position to actually play said tape, I took a punt that this might have been it, as  I'm sure his band had a one-word name (excluding "The" obviously) 

So, the mystery continues...

The Change were the original name for the band Noiseworks. They released one single, Forever Young b/w Out There. As far as I know they were exactly the same band members as Noiseworks. No Andrew James.

Thanks for the pic.

A couple of comments:

Can understand Bones not being able to make it, being in Nashville  and all, but if Andrew James is there (as well he should be), where's Martin?

(On AJ, I think I've discovered his post Oils band's name. They popped out a single in the late 80s which was about Auschwitz (I dimly recall). They were called The Change and the song was Forever young. Does this ring any bells with anyone? I can't find it on the Intertubes.)

Is Giffo wearing some Wicked weasel attire beneath his otherwise conventional outfit - he may be laughing because he's keeping his more idiosyncratic fashion choices to himself, unlike....

... Rob. Oh Rob. Wearing a hot pink jumpsuit and matching Buggles specs (thanks to an earlier poster for pointing out this parallel) may or may not have been a great fashion statement, but unless there is a high population density of yellow bellied black snakes in in the gallery, tucking the legs into long blue Explorer socks isn't really helping.
