Jim Moginie and The Family Dog @ Twist Lounge, Jan 5th, 2017
Jim Moginie and The Family Dog will be live in the Twist Lounge Jan 5th, 2017 Comprising Paul Loughhead (Celibate Rifles, The New Christs), Jim Moginie (Midnight Oil, The Break, ACO Underground, Jim Moginie’s Electric Guitar Orchestra, Shameless Seamus), Kent Steedman (Celibate Rifles, Modern Gong Ritual, Jim Moginie’s Electric Guitar Orchestra) and Tim Kevin (The Exiles, Youth Group, La Huva, Jim Moginie’s Electric Guitar Orchestra.) This is a trip into psychedelic rock and roll. Think Mogwai, Moby Grape, Fugazi and Radio Birdman. Or a cross between MC5 and The Beatles. Performing Jim songs, the odd chestnut from the Midnight Oil days and some highly prized covers. The band came together in 2006 to promote Jim’s first solo album ‘Alas Folkloric’ touring the country and playing Bluesfest, The Festival of Sydney and the Apollo Bay Music Festival. Since then they have been on hiatus, recording sporadically but recently have come together for some special Eastcoast shows.
