One of the most unlikely of band reunions of the last few years has been that of Midnight Oil. Frontman Peter Garret spent years working in politics following the original disbanding of the group in 2002 before a full scale reformation took place in 2016, with a subsequent world tour. New material is expected in 2020, so while we wait, we air three classics from the band at the top of the show. Aussie two-piece An Horse are back after a lengthy break since their last record and you can hear come-back single ‘This Is A Song’ on the show, along with our regular mix of new Oz and Canadian tracks.
