I was also at The Forum in 96, as well as several other shows in London between 1993 and 1997, and several in the States in between 2001 and 2002.  The Vogue in Indianapolis being, sadly, the last time I saw them.  Was the Forum show in 96 when they played the slowed down version of Dead Heart?

I remember seeing this Jools Holland episode and being completely blown away.  Can't quite remember if this was aired before my first oils live experience at the Astoria Theater on April 29, 1993 or soon after.

That link took me straight back to October 96 in The Old Forum in Kentish Town London where I lost my Oily cherry so to speak, happy happy days.


Thanks for posting it Martin :-)

I rarely post, but always read the digest . I cannot express how much the Oils, their  music and 

keeping tuned in on Powderworks has meant to me. In 1980 my sister, who  emigrated to Melbourne,

sent me a vinyl of "10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1" and my musical horizons where forever changed. The 

last times I saw the Oils were 3 shows in 3 days in 2011 (NJ,NY and Boston). This on the heals of 9/11,

effected me profoundly.

Thanks to all the Powderworkers for their participation and keeping the Midnight Oil burning. I have a 

hoodie that I stitched the P-Workers tshirt (2-Sticks) logos to. I wear it with pride and love when people ask,

"What's that about?" 

Here's a gem that I just saw recently, this is why we love the Oils:
