Horns at Midnight Oil

Breaking News: For the final 2017 Sydney and Melbourne shows, the entire Hunters and Collectors brass section – The Horns of Contempt – will be joining Midnight Oil!

The magnificent Jack Howard – best known here for the Hunters brass we know and love – has been touring the world with Midnight Oil throughout this year.

He’s not just doing occasional trumpet, as he told us:

…as the days and weeks roll on and the immense scope of the song list becomes apparent, I am given a myriad of cowbell, keyboard, backing vocal, flugel horn, trumpet and lemon shaker roles to fulfill. I even get to provide comic relief during the shows eventually – playing Rob’s drums (Simmons pads in Generals Talk) when he ventures front of stage to play the cocktail kit and sing.

Jack has plenty more to share on Facebook!

Midnight Oil and Hunters and Collectors have a long standing relationship over the last thirty years – remembered fondly by many international fans for the 1990 tour where Hunters supported the Oils.
