Jim Moginie's 'Perpetua EP' is out today, get it here: http://radi.al/Perpetua

In Jim's own words: "This picture of me was taken in Fluntern Cemetery in Switzerland, where James Joyce is buried. We came there to honour the great man and his wife Nora. "During recuperation after the amazing Midnight Oil world tour I was mostly horizontal. So I put together an EP of songs I recorded a couple of years ago, along the lines of last year窶冱 窶篭nder The Motherland窶冱 Flag窶 EP. "In 2016 I had just turned a significant age, so barricaded myself into the studio with engineer El Ninety and banged them out during the winter months, playing most of the instruments myself with my son Sam on drums. "The text was thus. 窶狼he moment is now. There is no time to dilly dally around the periphery窶. So, while I'm thus philosophically engaged, I'm releasing the 4 song EP, called PERPETUA, on Ash Wednesday (or if you like) St. Valentine窶冱 Day, February 14. Because there窶冱 a song called Eternal Love on there. There窶冱 a co write with Sarah Blasko on there too, and another with some Nashville cats. "Perpetua. The title fits: it's in honour of the glorious dead: ancestors, relatives, friends, childhood heroes. We are but passing through, it窶冱 feckin perpetual. OK. That窶冱 a mawkish idea to some. And I say 窶郎ou窶决e on earth, there窶冱 no cure for that.窶 窶朗o, I regret nothing, all I regret is having been born, dying is such a long tiresome business I always found.窶 Actually that was Beckett." Share the 笶、ク on Valentine's Day.
Unfortunately it窶冱 not possible for Midnight Oil to police every item that is sold on the internet, but as a general comment, buyers should always beware that there are lots of scammers out there, and fans should therefore always act with appropriately high levels of skepticism before making any unofficial Midnight Oil-related purchases. In this particular instance, given the price and quantity of the items, we want to make it clear that Midnight Oil did NOT sign these guitars. In other words they are NOT authentic as the seller is claiming. This has been communicated to the website which is enabling the sale and the seller. - Oils HQ
