DDIO is a hard song to sing, For me, it involved a lot of switching between chest and head registers. I remember an Aus Idol contestant singing quite a nice reggae version of "Now We're Getting Somewhere". I remember the face but not the name and can't seem to find the clip anywhere.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eL5NVNC5_UY Aiden Grimshaw - DDIO - very grim indeed http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z__-4df8kc4 Anthony Kavanagh - DDIO butcherd again. I can only conclude this song is alot harder to sing than we might think.

I'm decluttering and getting rid of my Finn-related CD singles. They're all UK releases from 1998 onward: She Will Have Her Way 1&2 Sinner 1&2 Last One Standing EP Wherever You Are 1&2 Hole In the Ice 1&2 Won't Give In 1&2 Nothing Wrong With You 1&2 Edible Flowers Don't Stop Now 1&2 And Also: Fingers of Love (from 1994 I think) and Don't Dream It's Over (1996 re-release I think). I'm open to offers, including simply just paying for postage from the UK. Drop me a...
Well Neil has encouraged us to get up in the past so you never know Originally Posted by vicarious: Ah, no, you can breathe easy - we're D23-25, on the other side of the aisle. All irrelevant once we have charged to the front two-thirds of the way through (at a rough guess . . ). You'll know who we are cos my husband will be the one left behind, staying resolutely in his seat, with a grumpy face .

Well I have a feeling that I'm either right next to you vicarious or a couple of seats away. My friends and I will be in D11-D13. You'll have the pleasure (or not) of being close to us Hopefully between here or Facebook I'll be able to sell the tickets.
Suffer Never was in open "D" , this one appears to be in "E" and the opening is exactly the same structure ( but not as complex) - still a good sound and could be a winner for FB's lawyers / royalties haha
FB lawyers! I truly hope not! Neither Neil or Tim have been that greedy or small minded in the past and its not as if these guy have sampled it without credit. They might have been inspired by it, the similarity might be a coincidence. The day the Finn become vexatious litigants is the day I stop listening.
Dear Frenz, My DH and I wanted to surprise each other and both of us bought two tickets for the Neil Finn concert on 9 may. This is very sweet but sadly now we have double the amount of tickets. We would...
Just announced by the festival: Neil Finn will perform at the Lokerse Feesten in Lokeren, Belgium (near Gand and Bruges) on 8 August. Also performing that day are Garbage and Trixie Whitley. Lokersefeesten.be Tickets are already on sale.
I have 2 tickets for sale for Neil Finn for the Bristol Colston Hall show on Saturday 26th April (less than 3 weeks away). Some friends aren't able to go now and I'd hate for them to go to waste. Anyone here need any tickets? They're stalls seats D9-D10, £32.50 per ticket (face value). I'm happy to split the tickets if necessary. Here's the seating plan for the Colston Hall: http://stage.colstonhall.org/w...7/Seating_plan_A.pdf Thanks.
I have one spare ticket (first class) for sale because my wife can't make it next Friday (she doesn't know what she's missing). I paid 66 euro for it and I want to sell it for a reduced price of 45 euro's, to make another fan happy. Neil Finn (support act: Tiny Ruins) Friday May 9th 2014 20.00-23.30h Royal CarrÉ theater Amsterdam Seat: Parterre Midden, rij 2, stoel 35 (1st class seat, just behind and above stalls) Price: 45 euro Mail me and we can discuss the details! greetings, Lucien
I'm an American. I'm also a 20-something, so I no longer have CD players (i never thought the day would come). So I pretty much buy all my music digitally, now. I found Tim's debut, I found big canoe, the view, say it is so, imaginary kingdom, even a couple others. Any word/reason/other on why his s/t album hasn't been released digitally yet? That's the one i'm dying to obtain. But it seems to be the only one not on any digital music retailer. Makes me sad.
Hi, I'm having a clear out and getting rid of my CDs, as I can no longer cope with too much plastic under the bed! I wondered if any fan club members wanted to make an offer for one or (preferably) all of the following fan club CDs? They're listed below with name, location, recording dates and links to the tracklistings. ******** Crowded House Acoustically Live (Various, 1994-1996 I think): https://musicbrainz.org/release/7e07eafe-6eb3-4c5c-99de-9406b8174b55 Ghost Cars (Various, 1991-1994):...
Hi, Not posted here before, although been reading for years. I've joined up to share a blog I recently wrote about Crowded House, and Neil's writing in general. I was getting frustrated with telling people I like Crowded House and them breaking into 'everywhere you go, always take the weather with you!' But not knowing any of the other stuff. I don't mean that in a snobby, elitest way. There are plenty of bands who I only really like one song by, whilst the rest of their catalogue doesn't do...
Hey Mark, thanks for sharing your blog. It's an interesting perspective on CH. I've been a fan for 30 years and to me their music simply sounds like home. I had a listen to your 'Twisted Logic' demo and it felt more XTC than Crowded House (please take that as a compliment). Keep rocking!
Thanks both Brando, I know what you mean with the XTC comment. I guess a line like 'visions of body parts floating in formaldehyde' (which is, of course, tongue in cheek) isn't quite Neil Finn! When I played it to a friend of mine, he said he heard it as a Tears For Fears type thing, with a big production. We'll have to wait and see how it turns out when I have the money to do some proper work on it. Love your comment about Crowded House sounding like home.
Tomorrow (26/08/2016) sees the first UK release from Auckland based classical guitar duo Pablo Vasquez. 'Teasero' will be available as a free download here: http://recordiaucaegwyn.com/ You can also stream the single here: https://soundcloud.com/recordiaucaegwynrecords/pablo-vasquez-teasero-1 During the last week or so the track has been receiving some significant radio support from the likes of BBC 6 Music (Tom Ravenscroft) as well as various BBC regional stations, including BBC Radio 1 DJ...
Below is a generated folder list of every available Enz-related studio album/EP/project I can think of. I own a physical CD copy of everything listed (with the exception of a few that are digital only), and everything in these folders are lossless FLAC files (all tagged properly, with cover art). However, I am missing the bold/italic releases. So I guess my question is, aside from the bold/italic releases, am I missing anything obvious? Also, has anyone managed to find themselves copies of...
Thanks for this list; indeed very useful for reference. I miss Tim's Rarities, Demos, Live Performances Vol. I on your list. Not sure if you didn't list it because it self-released, but just wanted to let you know.
Nice list! I would add Phil Manzanera's K-Scope which like Southern Cross featured Tim on lead vocals for a few tracks. Other Enzers were also involved. Mark Hart was a member of Supertramp for a few albums before and after Crowded House. Neil was featured prominently on several Dave Dobbyn albums including as producer and co-songwriter on Twist. Phil contributed music to a movie called Amy in 1997 but I don't know if the soundtrack was officially released.
Hi Michael, I did get one reply but the person hasn't got back to me with an address. If you're interested, I'd be happy to send that person one more nag and, if they don't get back to me tomorrow, post the CDs to you instead. Whereabouts are you based?

If you still have them I will take them all for 20 dollars NZ. If you would not mind perhaps you could include the tracklist for each disc as this is kind of a collectors type of page and that interests these sorts of people. I would want these for rare live songs and any b sides I haven't heard or have on mp3 file. Suffer never.
Hey everyone, my name's Mitch and I posted my band's songs here about 9 months ago (they're called "Garden Varieties" and "They Love You"). For those of you who heard them, and everyone else of course, here's our new song called "I Don't Miss Then". Huge Paul Kelly influence on this one, and naturally there's a bit of Mr Neil Finn in there too. Tell us what you think! Song can be found in the link! https://soundcloud.com/mode-atlanta/tracks
Absolutely awesome stuff!! Has what I'm starting to recognise as the 'Brisbane sound' with those sunny guitar tones. Definitely a Paul Kelly/Beatles sound to it too. I can't decide whether I like this or Garden Varieties more... Keep them coming!
Paul McCartney held a Facebook live chat today hosted by Tim Minchin during which he confirmed a run of shows in Australia and New Zealand. Neil Finn received a mention: "McCartney also confirmed in the over-30 minute chat that the long-running rumour he once referred to Crowded House frontman, Neil Finn, as the world's greatest songwriter is false." "After being teased by Minchin that he doesn't even like Finn's music, McCartney joked back, "I didn't say that. I don't, but I didn't say...
