Said Jackson's manager: "Jackson has a high degree of respect for the memory of Merrick. He has read and studied all material about the Elephant Man, and has visited the hospital in London twice to view Merrick's remains."

Midnight Oil Protest Exxon

Australian rockers Midnight Oil make headlines when they stage a protest concert outside of the Exxon building in New York City in response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill that devastated Prince William Sound in Alaska the year before. Vocalist Peter Garrett says: "We can't treat the world like a garbage dump, and there's more to life than profit and loss."

The company's refusal to accept responsibility for the disaster, which was caused when one of their oil tankers crashed into Bligh Reef and leaked nearly 11 million gallons of crude oil into the ocean and surrounding coastline, outraged the " Beds Are Burning " hitmakers. Armed with a banner that proclaims "Midnight Oil Makes You Dance, Exxon Oil Makes Us Sick," the band pulls up on the back of a flatbed truck and blasts through an eight-song set for the astonished Exxon employees and thousands of passersby during the lunchtime rush. "The day was completely chaotic, even though it had been planned with military precision. It was a guerrilla raid on New York City," the Oils' guitarist and keyboardist Jim Moginie tells Blurt Magazine . "The police wanted to shut it down as we were disrupting traffic. There were heated negotiations between the mayor's office, our record label Sony and the NYPD to keep it open for us." They manage to squeeze in eight songs, including the Blue Sky Mining track "River Runs Red" and a cover of John Lennon's " Instant Karma! " The event makes headlines the next day, with clips of the performance airing on MTV News. Says Moginie: "We played 'Instant Karma' for the first time, which summed up matters pretty well about the oil spill. It felt good to make the point that needed to be made about Exxon. It was only afterwards I realized the event was front page news all around the world. I’m so glad it was filmed and recorded. Everybody heard about it in the mainstream media world so in that sense it put us in front of more people." The concert is included in the documentary Black Rain Falls , with proceeds going to Greenpeace.

Midnight Oil: Black Rain Falls

Midnight Oil: Black Rain Falls

  • Features the ecologically minded Aussie's widely publicized six-song performance on May 30 from a flatbed truck in front of Manhattan's Exxon Building. Also includes the conceptual clip of "King of the Mountain," plus interview and documentary footage. — sTv0
  • On May 30, 1990, Midnight Oil interrupted its North American tour for a "special guerrilla action" on the crowded Avenue of the Americas in midtown Manhattan. The agit prop event was a live concert from the back of a flat-bed truck that eventually drew more than 10,000 people at the high noon hour. The Australian band took this chance to make public its feelings on the planet's crumbling environment "There are things we think are so important that they need to be said." Lead singer Peter Garrett told a packed international press conference after the performance. "and the best way we could say it was with song." Here are the six songs captured live that day: "Progress" (from the 1986 EP, Species Deceases); "Sometimes" and "Dreamworld" (from 1987's Diesel And Dust); Blue Sky Mine" and "River Runs Red" (from Blue Sky Mining); the apropos tribute to John Lennon, "Instant Karma"; and finally, the video clip for Midnight Oil's "King Of The Mountain" (from Blue Sky Mining) available here for the first time. The message is clear and continues to reverberate through the canyon known as Sixth Avenue, the symbol of corporate responsibility for so many of our global problems. "What happened this morning," says Garrett, "was just another of the things that this band has tried to do for the last decade or so. We want to take some of the issues that are in the songs back onto the streets where they belong."

Albums That Should Exist

Sunday, april 23, 2023, midnight oil - bbc in concert, wembley arena, london, britain, 5-12-1990.

midnight oil tour 1990

Actually, the bit about great sound quality wasn't entirely true. When I found this bootleg, I thought the lead vocals were too low in the mix. But I was able to use an audio editing program to fix that. So now it does sound great.

I also discovered another problem: there are two popular versions on the Internet, and they have different song lists. I found the correct song list, which consists of all of the songs from one version, and just two extra songs from the other one (which misses some from the first version). So I've combined the two to create the full concert. I believe the two songs from the other source are "Lucky Country" and "Only the Strong." They had a different level of cheering from the others, so I patched in more cheering at the ends of those. 

Midnight Oil is known for almost always doing all their own songs.  But in this concert they did two covers: "(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding" and "Know Your Product."

This concert is an hour and 26 minutes long.
