Yes it was a killer set list.  For those who don’t have this recording it is still being seeded at yeeshkul.com for people who like to download torrents. 




The 2 Anthoilogy DVD’s as well as the 15cd Oils Live set are also being seeded there.


For those who don’t do torrents and want the Kansas City recording then as my contribution to the 10 year anniversary celebrations I will send it to you via We Transfer.  Just contact me off group.

Sadly I last saw them in Kansas City in 2002. Absolute killer setlist though:

  1. Bullroarer
  1. Too Much Sunshine
  1. Brave Faces
  1. Put Down That Weapon
  1. World That I See
  1. Written in the Heart
  1. Luritja Way
  1. Warakurna
  1. Beds Are Burning
  1. Now or Never Land
  1. Blue Sky Mine
  1. Say Your Prayers
  1. The Real Thing

(Russell Morris cover)

  1. Hercules
  1. Golden Age
  1. US Forces
  1. The Dead Heart
  1. Dreamworld
  1. One Too Many Times
  1. Don't Wanna Be the One

I couldn’t have honestly picked a better setlist myself. Dead in the middle of the front row and 3 songs from PWAP!


It just doesn’t get much better than that. Thanks for all the memories to all list members, and to the Oils for making it all possible.

I rarely post, but always read the digest . I cannot express how much the Oils, their  music and 

keeping tuned in on Powderworks has meant to me. In 1980 my sister, who  emigrated to Melbourne,

sent me a vinyl of "10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1" and my musical horizons where forever changed. The

last times I saw the Oils were 3 shows in 3 days in 2011 (NJ,NY and Boston). This on the heals of 9/11,

effected me profoundly.

Thanks to all the Powderworkers for their participation and keeping the Midnight Oil burning. I have a

hoodie that I stitched the P-Workers tshirt (2-Sticks) logos to. I wear it with pride and love when people ask,

"What's that about?"

Here's a gem that I just saw recently, this is why we love the Oils:
