[quote]Midnight Oil was an Australian hard rock band from Sydney, Australia. Through a long and distinguished career, the band became known for its driving hard-rock sound, intense live performances and political activism, particularly in aid of environmentalist and indigenous causes.
Between 1990 and 1993, the band's Blue Sky Mining and Earth and Sun and Moon albums also drew critical acclaim and international success. The subject matter of their singles included the CSR asbestos mine incident (Blue Sky mine) and racism (Redneck Wonderland, White Skin-Black Heart), while the song Truganani referenced multiple issues including the 'last' Tasmanian Aboriginal, the treatment of Albert Namatjira and the Australian flag debate. In 1989 Garrett was appointed the President of the Australian Conservation Foundation, and in 1990 Midnight Oil played an impromptu lunchtime set in front of Exxon headquarters in New York with a banner reading, "Midnight Oil Makes You Dance, Exxon Oil Makes Us Sick", protesting the Exxon Valdez oil spill the previous year.
Breathe is an album by Midnight Oil that was released in 1996 under the Columbia Records label.
