Re: Bootlegs, Taboo????

Secret God (Stew) ·
Nice post, Peter . (I just thought you might have problems sleeping tonight if someone else didn't compliment you on your fantastic post ). Did anyone ever consider that the people paying that sort of price for dodgy bootlegs of fanclub CDs must already be pretty massive fans & would have probably already brought Neil Finn 's complete back catalogue? Just a thought. I'm sure that thought had already entered everyone's minds, but still worth mentioning... at least I thought it was ... The...

Yep, the track on Other Enz is the same Finn/Judd composition, but it's not a genuine Split Enz recording as such. It was released as the B-side of a 1980 single by Graham Brazier (ex Hello Sailor) and credited to "A Ripper Bunch of Blokes." The "blokes" who played on the recording included Mike Chunn, Eddie Rayner, Rob Gillies, and Mal Green. Part of the tune was later used in "I Wouldn't Dream of It" on True Colours .

Oh, one thing I really loved about the movie which Brandi mentioned was the character Gollum. Wow, he was incredible! So realistic looking! I was in total awe! The funny thing is, I remembered this character because of Joanna's dream about Neil Finn last night. Her description of how Neil looked when his wig fell off, balding with only tufts of hair, made me think of Gollum.

Re: POLL: Finn On Finn>> Influence On Woodface's Success

Kill Eye ·
Sorry to put this right after your post ValerieH, but... I hate Weather With You. It is the worst Crowded house song ever. I want to claw off my ears when I hear it. It's taken me years to come to terms with the fact that I hate it, but I've finally made my peace with it. It's the only Crowded House song I've ever had such a violent reaction to, but it makes me feel good to know that Neil is not perfect. And Woodface is my least favourite Crowded House album. I do like most of the other...

Re: Neil Finn in France

I think if more people knew which songs were by Crowded House there would be more fans. We have some french friends and they didn't know who I meant when I said Crowded House. But when I sang a bit of Don't Dream It's Over, 5 out of 5 knew it and 4 out of the 5 knew Weather With You. On holiday in France though, I never ever see any Crowded House CDs But I did hear Fall At Your Feet getting played in a french supermarket, so obviously the songs are liked and popular. People just need to know...

Re: Neil on "Open Mike" tonight???!!

I saw the whole show - it was great. Neil was the first guest and was interviewed for about ten minutes. The interview consisted of Mike Bullard insisting there were crocs and kangaroos in New Zealand and Neil correcting him; and then Neil telling a story about being kept awake by some people having a loud party the night before the opening 'Seven Worlds' concert. Neil then went on to perform Human Kindness (without a drummer - only Steinberg and Sullivan as backup). Neil returned to close...

Originally posted by Mlee Mains: Yep, that would be hard for me too. There is at least one "connection" between Neil Finn and Elvis Costello: Mitchell Froom plays on King of America, and I think he worked on that right before he went on to produce the first album by Crowded House. Everytime I listen to the organ part in "I'll Wear It Proudly" I always think of the organ part in "Don't Dream It's Over" - anyone else?

The year was 1995, the concert was R.E.M. The opening act was Crowded House. This was like a dream come true for me but sadly the concert was in Auckland and i was a 17 year old at school with no money living in Wellington, i was crushed. 2 of my all time favourite bands playing the same venue on the same night. But there it was, the greatest pairing in the history of music.
