Drinking in the midnight oil without a safety net

The great Australian rock band Midnight Oil is reuniting after not playing for seven years (except for a one-off benefit), for a series to aid victims of vast bushfires in Victoria.

Problem is, former lead singer Peter Garrett won't have time to rehearse because he's too busy as a member of the cabinet of Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd.

I was lucky enough to see Midnight Oil perform three times back when they were touring the US. We won't be lucky enough to see much of this reunion beyond the inevitable YouTube clips.
