Re: Tarmac Adam new album -Nick Seymour on bass

Sorry about the thread necrophilia, but after seeing Neil in concert, I'm revisiting various SE, CH, and Finn related unexplored things. I've been playing the Tarmac Adam album "The History Effect" on Spotify and it's really growing on me. It probably does help that I enjoyed The Psychedelic Furs back in the day. I imagine that I'm going to purchase the album, but I'm a bit disappointed that the actual CD is really expensive in the UK.

Tarmac Adam new album -Nick Seymour on bass

She will have her way ·
Some may remember Paul Hester's and Nick's involvement with Tarmac Adam and the first album Handheld Torch. The new album The History Effect is due for release 19 February and Nick is back on bass.  The band has a neat little website...

Hitting one's peak: The Paul Simon example

Dorthonion ·
When I read in a Neil thread about artists having their peak sometime (and facing their decline afterwards) I thought that this may be true often, but not always. A recent example is the latest album by Paul Simon, now 74 years old. Simon has refined and developed his art ever since going solo a full 46 years ago. Not everything may have been to the liking of all his fans (especially S&G fans), but looking over his work I cannot pinpoint a peak or decline in his output. Maybe the key is...

That's a terrific song. I like Wristband a lot as well, which I hear on the radio pretty frequently. I think you're right about Paul Simon. He has been remarkably consistent, and I don't think I've ever heard anything by him that I dislike. Although I can't say I'm a "Big Fan," and I only own a couple of his solo albums. I don't think Neil is stagnant at all. His current path seems to have him intentionally trying new approaches to music, most of which seems to consciously avoid falling into...

DORTHONION , Paul Simon may be one the best examples of longevity and success of a mainstream artist, despite or possibly thanks to, his many musical experiments and forays into uncharted territories. As much as I love Neil, I'm not sure that it's a fair comparison. Neil's #1 for me, but unfortunately he's never achieved the same level of Super-stardom as let's say Paul Simon, Peter Gabriel or Sting (I'm not saying he doesn't deserve it, it just hasn't happened yet). If we were to measure...

I've only just noticed that there's a new Tarmac Adam album "In Place". I can't find much information about it, so don't know if Nick was involved. (googles) Yes, Nick plays bass on the album. https://www.facebook.com/TarmacAdamMusic/

Farewell To The World 1996 or Encore 2016

allthingsfinn ·
Just wondering among fellow finn fans which is your favorite concert or what you love about each. Farewell is the best concert by any band in my opinion and also Pauls last which makes it that more emotional. Encore the band are so tight and you can tell from the music how much fun the guys are having.

Didn't see the farewell concert I wasn't well enough so missed it. The 2016 encore was amazing. I went with my daughter and she even said it was the most magical concert she's ever been to. She is only 18. Was great to have been able to share a concert with her. She also loves their music now too ��

I cannot answer this one fairly- the first one I wasn't alive to see, the second I attended in person. I will agree that FTTW is the best release from any artist I've ever heard.

Actually, I agree with the assessment that at that point the Crowdies were rather concerned that they might mess something up while writing themselves into history, so when it comes to concerts that have been a/v-documented, I would go for Fleadh '94 as a better concert than FTTW '96. The Encores I have neither watched on TV nor attended, so I cannot testify to the qualities of these.

Hey everyone, here's Mode Atlanta's new song, "I Don't Miss Then". Enjoy!

Mitchell Laney ·
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 talks Neil Finn

The Ligature ·
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...

Great to put that one to rest. And nice that even if the quote is false, Paul is still a fan.
