Midnight Oil - Back On The Borderline


On this date in 1980, Midnight Oil released their third single, "Back On The Borderline". It was backed by "Section 5 (Bus To Bondi)". Both tracks appeared on their second album, Head Injuries. The power pop band from Sydney, Australia gained chart success in their homeland long before making any noise in the U.K. and U.S. That would arrive in the mid-80's. The band broke up in 2002
