The pair has been touring with their show One of Those Tunes,  a selection of songs spanning decades. Both performers have contributed extensively to our musical heritage as founding members of iconic Australian bands, Neil with Warumpi Band and Jim with Midnight Oil.

The Big Wet.

“Are you in there, luv?”
“Of course I’m in here; you’re talkin’ to me, aren’t yer?”
“Sorry, love, but you’ve got to make a boat.”
“Fer fuck’s sake, woman, didn’t I just put up some shelves in the kitchen for yer?”
“No, I mean, yes…. but it’s not for me; it’s for God.”
“For God; you know… him upstairs. He said you have to build a boat.”
“What…. Now? Can’t it wait till I get out of the dunny?”
“I s’pose, so. He never said you had to build it today… but he said it was pretty urgent like.”
“Fer fuk’s sake… let me talk to him…. “

“God… God…!!  What’s all this about a boat?”
“Ah… there you are, Noah. I couldn’t find you…”
“Yeah, well, you didn’t look very hard, didjer…? I was in the dunny. It’s pretty hard to get any fukn peace and quiet around here.  What’s this boat for?”
“To save mankind and the animal kingdom from total destruction.”
“Pig’s arse…!!! What’re you really up to?”
“There will be a mighty flood that will cover the earth…”
“Hang on… a mighty fukn flood!!!! What about all that global warming crap they was goin’ on about?”
“Not global warming, Noah – climate change, I said. And it’s going to get a wee bit damp so you’ll need to build a boat to survive.”
“Can’t I buy one on eBay or something?”
“Not like the one I need you to have, Noah; it has to be exceedingly large to hold the breeding pairs of all the members of the animal kingdom.”
“How large?”
“I have the plans here, Noah. First, you will need Gopher wood…”
“Well, someone will have to, won’t they?”
“Go fer the fukn wood!! There’s none around here since the renaissance of forestry.”
“Well, your family can help you with that.”
“You’re pullin’ yourself, aren’t yer, God. They won’t even help with the washing up. I’ll get the stuff meself. What else?”
“You must make the ark 300 cubits long and 30 high ...”
“Cubits!!! What’s this fukn cubit business?? I don’t know where you’ve been hanging out but haven’t you noticed we’ve all gorne fukn metric!  Fer fuk’s sake get with it, Man. If you’re going to start flooding us all to death you could at least take a bit of interest in what the fuk we’re all doin’ down here.”
“Noah, that is precisely the reason I am flushing the whole lot of you down the toilet.  Anyway, you’d better get started on that boat….”
“Why? It hasn’t rained in yonks round here; it’s a dry as Bronwyn Bishop’s twinkie…. Hey! Is that a cloud on the horizon????”
“Looks Like it, Noah… snigger; snigger.”
Hammer Hammer; Saw Saw; nail nail….
Some time later.
“Rightey-ho. All done, God. Bring them fukn animals.”
And so God brung the critters. Noah’s family was amazed as they watched the animals enter two-by two.
“Will you look at that! Two of everything. Rabbits, rats,  lesser spotted gerbils, great bears, good gnus, bad gnus, Hey!!! Hang on a minute, God… you can forget the spiders. No good to anyone them spiders is… They hide under the dunny seat and bite yer arse.”
“Noah… some spiders do that but in the main, spiders eat insects – not arses - and therefore do more good than harm. There is a reason for everything under the sun, from the lowest to the highest order, and you will not regret their survival and, besides, there are many other things that will nip your arse with more malice than a wee spider.”
“Fair enough, I’ll buy that but I will not tolerate this... a breeding pair of politicians.”
“Hmmm; I admit you have me stumped there. They are the lowest and meanest form of life however, they are life, Jim, but not as we know it. Therefore I am obliged by the order of the Universe CEO to include them in the cargo.”
“But, God… this is a chance going begging. Drown the fukkers, now.”
“I don’t think I should, even though they are nought but the scum off of some festering hyena turds. They are on the manifest I was sent by fax from HQ so I must proceed as instructed. HQ knows what it’s doing  -  presumably.”
“God... has HQ ever made a mistake?”
“Not that I can recall… well, not too many, anyway.”
“Well… I think this one is gonna be one of those things that will come back and bite us all on the arse…  with Big Malice!”
