Aussie rockers shouted about land usage in their home country, back in 1987. Probably, you’ve never heard of the Pintupi people, Australian aboriginals considered to be among the last of indigenous people in this country to hang on to their traditional ways of life. Alas, they were evicted from where they lived back in the 1950s and 1960s, which this rocking song is about.
Singer Peter Garrett later became an Australian member of parliament, and even, minister of environment, in a political career from 2004-2013.
