“The Oils” have got mixed comments ,mainly negative, when I’ve lauded their talents on the blog previously. But I still think they are a great band and have every confidence that this return to touring will result in some great performances.
Each time they have done one-offs the cohesion has been remarkable . I might have recounted hearing on the radio broadcast of one of the benefit concerts someone shout “give up your day job” to Garrett who by then was a full time Federal Politician.
I’m surprised Hirst was the one to initially say no, as I always thought of him as the keeper of the flame.
