Dear Powderworks friends!!!

How many have seen 1984 in the limited cinema release???
Check the pre-order on Madman site and at JB Hi Fi for aussie or region 4 DVDers… no doubt to be expanded elsewhere by one means or another…

I knew it would be inspiring and a great glimpse of the 1980s but wasn’t ready for Michael Lippold to ‘steal the show’ and to be so closely reminded this was exactly when I was first forced to listen to the Oils and ‘got hooked’…

This egroup has always held legend status for me even before I found my way here…

I’d like to think 1984 is a celebration of long haul passionate Oils fans who knew what it was about before the world discovered this part of our heart and soul as Aussies!!! ‘The Great Circle’ was a brilliant reminder of the guitar brilliance lurking in the band…

I wonder what rumour and fact exists re recordings of new Oils material… they must, last year was too good to be nostalgia!!!
