Still recording on their own Powderworks label, Midnight Oil broke through to commercial success in their native Australia with their second album, 'Head Injuries,' which, like their debut, was a record full of tightly arranged, furiously played and sung, fast-paced rock & roll numbers.
Lead singer Peter Garrett, singing angry, sometimes politically oriented (but not, at least to international listeners, entirely clear) lyrics, took a backseat to the guitar work of Jim Moginie and Martin Rotsey and especially to the driving drumming of Rob Hirst.
'Head Injuries' was a stirring collection that served notice Midnight Oil was ready to compete beyond the borders of Australia.
Originally released in October 1979 on their own Powderworks label and distributed by Columbia Records. The album was produced by Leszek J. Karski. It was the last Midnight Oil album to feature founding bass guitarist Andrew James, who quit the band due to illness.
Newly remastered for vinyl, 180gm vinyl.
