Reply to "Early Enz musical influences"

Actually, the band Family is a pretty good comparison - not so much for sound, but in the fact that they were likewise uncategorizeable. Very delicate at times, ferocious at others, with an astounding vocalist and front man in Roger Chapman, as unique in his own respect as early Enz-era Tim Finn - strong words! It was "prog rock" in the finest possible respect: on the same terms that The Beach Boys would merit being labeled "prog rock": by refusing to accept the current boundaries and raising the bar a bit. Early Enz prog? By those standards - yes. Proudly. BTW, Family had many records released and I imagine they're all re-released. They were big critical favorites of the time. I wouldn't begin to be able to tell you where to start. Their first was in 1968, I believe. Their timeline, coupled with all the press they received in British publications, could all point to their potential as an influence on Our Enz.
