Hey Phil....I know Im going a bit crazy with the posts here...but what can you do! I have just been listening to all your stuff over the past couple of days....and I think I like The Swingers the best. I remember a few things about The Swingers reforming and playing at the mushroom 25th concert....what happened there? And this'll seem strange, but I remember watching the an old Countdown ages ago when they used to play them on rage.....and I remember good old Molly saying that you left the...

Hello there to Phil Judd, Phil dude - there's so many people interested in your tunes and art - it's a shame they don't appear - is this a personal choice or copyright malarkey ?

I've got a feeling the dressing gown and oven mitts pic was on the US 'The Swinger' EP. Oh ****, right, it's going straight back to Whammo records then. (And I should say.... For all your Frenz needs click here! :0) ) Looks like Phil had a bad attack of poison ivy(or maybe something else down under)....and this was the remedy for scratching too much....I'm imagining his Mum was just about to add a shed load of brown tape to the top of those mitts

it was NEVER released on CD.

"Starstruck" was a Summer hit here, in the same way that "Puberty Blues" became a hit. .. but "Puberty Blues " went a bit deeper into the "troubles of youth" *grin*....."Starstruck" was more glitz. They probably both made their money back... The album did chart, and Jo Kennedy hosted Countdown (music TV show)....the cameo by The Swingers is one of the few good bits in the movie... The Swingers themselves, one hit wonders here, Mushroom tried to get "Aint what you Dance.." off the ground,...

I like it too but to my ears it's definitely disjointed. I prefer side one to side two. Here's an interview from Australian mag RAM promoting the album. RAM, December 9, 1983 Invasion of Privacy Phil Judd has become something of a recluse since his Split Enz and Swinger days. Greg Taylor tracks him down and finds that making solo albums is just as traumatic as group efforts. “Once upon a time it was Hastings, New Zealand, a medium sized town surrounded by orchards and hops and tobacco...

Some of the stuff on the Swinger E.P is worth checking out. the Schnell Fenster album "The Sound of Trees" is a good bet - and of course (Juddites will crucify me for not remembering the original title of the album here) The Swingers album that was re-released as Counting The Beat. Personally - I love some of the stuff on Beginning of The Enz too. Malmsbury Villa, No Bother To Me etc. My memory fails me as to whether they're Judd compositions or Judd\Finn compositions.

I've always preferred Sound of Trees to "OK, Alright..." They're both standout bits of Phil's work, but Sound just hangs together better I think - not a duff track on it, and for a while it even edged out CH's stuff as my favourite post-Enz album. Private Lives I've never been able to track down, so good luck finding a copy Peedenmark7. I saw one copy on eBay a few months back, but bidding went too high for me.

I am coming late to this party, having only just received my copy of the Rootin Tootin Luton Tapes (the 15-track edition, that is). But I'm thrilled and surprised to discover how good the album is. I was always much more partial to Split Enz's pre-True Colours output; still, I'd assumed the phantom Luton tapes would be little more than a drunken lo-fi mess by a band at its lowest ebb. It's great to be proven wrong. I think this is as good as anything they did in the harlequin-suit and...

On Swingin' Affair , Lonesome Road has a gorgeous bassline, starts off quiet and builds to such a funky crescendo, it's exceptional!

Hi Cinnamon: If last night's show at the 9:30 Club in DC is anything to go by, you'll get your wish. Mark's slide was front and centre-stage -- including an absolutely incandescent work-out on Private Universe -- but he used it most beautifully on the new songs, including Isolation, Turn It Around, and 789. Thanks to his haunting slide sound, all these songs have just a hint of Polynesia in them, though not in any immediately obvious way. They're not in the genre of Bali Ha'i, or Don Ho.

Why not get the original band ... ie.. Tim Finn Phil Judd Eddie Rayner Wally Wilkinson Jonathan Michael Chunn Emlyn Crowther Noel Crombie Into the studio to re record Mental Notes .. and give it a 21st century mix .. just think of the fun that would be had doing it .. for a band that exuded peace,love and harmony in their music and lyrics .. isn't it time that hatchets were buried and people just got the **** over themselves .. not getting any younger are you chaps .. worth thinking about?

There are some problems you can't put behind you or put to one side briefly. I know there are people from my past who I was in bands with who I was good friends with at the time, but now I couldn't stand even being in the same room as, let alone having to rehearse with and be on stage with. You honestly couldn't pay me enough to do it, or if you did, I wouldn't speak to them the entire time, so it wouldn't work. I suspect there may be similar feelings in the Mental Notes lineup.

Clearly the best way to make a few thousand more sales would be to have Mental Notes re-issued as a 2cd set with the second disc containing more rare songs from that era (if there are any ???) or demos or a DVD of live performances from 1974/1975 (again, if there are any available).

I think there are plenty of examples where record companies have bought their own records to manipulate sales for chart position and gold albums etc. Despite this, I kind of agree with Enzboy.

Hows about putting the cash into this stuff? Any of these would get enough geniune sales to get it across the...
