4 Midnight Oil Midnight Oil Midnight Oil are an Australian rock band, who originally performed as Farm from 1972 with drummer Rob Hirst, bass guitarist Andrew James and keyboard player/lead guitarist Jim Moginie.

They should be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame...and will be back again in 2017! I really miss their energy, lyrics, and just straight out musical ability. I agree with another rock groups: Beatles, Rush and Midnight Oil. I still quote lyrics to folks here in the USA, especially now with T-Rump about to be "in charge".
