Jim Moginie is perhaps best known as a keyboard/guitarist member of iconic Australian band, Midnight Oil. His musicality and vision helped shape the sound of the Oils taking them far from their early pub rock thunder into a highly original and sophisticated sound world, incorporating avant-garde elements side-by-side with jangling guitar Pop-classicism. Moginie is still active in record production, recently co-producing Melbourne band The Fauves latest LP "When Good Times Go Good" released September 2008 and working with Bill Chambers, Lyn Bowtell, Blind Valley, Leah Flanagan, The Backsliders, The New Christs, Jordan Leser, Catherine Britt, Kate Plummer, Love Parade and numerous others. He is currently touring and recording with Rob Hirst, Martin Rotsey and Brian Ritchie in The Break, whose surf rock album Church Of The Open Sky was produced by Moginie and released on 16 April 2010 on the Bombora label, distributed by MGM. The band's second release "Space Farm", a more adventurous and psychedelic work including Jack Howard on trumpet, was also produced by Moginie and was released worldwide on 15 March 2013 through the Sony Music label. With Brian Ritchie Moginie in 2013 and 2014 has been performing live with the ACO Underground (Australian Chamber Orchestra) performing in Sydney, Banff and New York City.
