Saturday read #8 . Warm up for multiple @midnightoilband releases, & two Rob Hirst (+friends/family) albums with WindBackWednesday's drop-in on talk of politics, youth & - of course - taking the hardest line.
He's got a @midnightoilband tour, EP & album coming later this year, & if this WindBackWindow archival score holds true - and you know it would - Rob Hirst will be thumping tubs musical & political as hard in 2020 as he did in 2007 and 1987.
For 36 years Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst told no one his secret. At the age of 17, he fathered a daughter who was promptly given up for adoption. Now they’re back together and making music. Rob & Jay’s incredible album, ‘The Lost & the Found’ will be released later this month.
Hey Rob, go easy on 'em. Ha! When it comes to living a musical life as Rob Hirst - yes, him from @midnightoilband - sometimes you've got to take the hardest line, as WindBackWednesday found out. "Every generation has to get out and do it.".
