Summary
Midnight Oil?s 1990 New York concert, ?Black Rain Falls?, will be released for the first time on DVD on Friday 20th June. On May 30th 1990, Midnight Oil interrupted their North American tour for a <U+0027>(3z<U+0027>(Bspecial guerrilla action<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B outside of Exxon Oil headquarters on the crowded Avenue of the Americas in midtown Manhattan. The agitprop event from the back of a flat-bed truck drew more than 10,000 people out of the nearby office buildings and onto the street. The Oils were responding to one of the worst environmental disasters in US history when 11 million gallons of oil were spilled onto the pristine Alaskan coastline by the Exxon Valdez. Nearly twenty five years on the effects of the spill on the landscapes and wildlife of southern Alaska are still being felt. The long form concert features all six songs captured live that day: <U+0027>(S2<U+0027>(BProgress<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B (From the 1986 EP, Species Deceases); <U+0027>(S2<U+0027>(Bsometimes<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B and <U+0027>(S2<U+0027>(BDreamworld<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B (From 1987?s Diesel and Dust); <U+0027>(S2<U+0027>(BBlue Sky Mine<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B and <U+0027>(S2<U+0027>(BRiver Runs Red<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B (From Blue Skly Mining, 1990); the apropos tribute to John Lennon, <U+0027>(S2<U+0027>(BInstant Karma<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B and the video clip for Midnight Oil?s <U+0027>(S2<U+0027>(BKing Of The Mountain<U+0027>(S3<U+0027>(B (Also from Blue Sky Mining), plus commentary on each track from the band
