Boiling diesels

Most of the world doesn't know it, but after Midnight Oil peaked in popularity around 1991 (just before Nirvana blew the doors off), they kept making music -- two live discs, three studio albums, a greatest hits collection, and now a new CD called Capricornia, which deserves to be a comeback of sorts.

Midnight Oil were around before The Police formed. They were legends in Australia before U2 or R.E.M. made an album. They've been my favourite band since university (where most people determine their long-term favourite bands, I suppose), and I've always aspired to make my drumming as good as Rob Hirst's. Yet somehow, I was completely unaware when they played here in Vancouver last fall. They're coming again May 11, and I won't make that mistake again.

If you like real power in your live rock 'n' roll, you won't either.
