Crowded House has changed line-up about 5 times over the years. This is just the latest incarnation. It hasn’t hurt their musical output in the past. I’m excited about this new version.
Disagree . 86-89 aside , Mark has been there for the whole journey . This in my opinion is a very bad move .
Tim Finn would disagree with that.
Look at Split Enz. They barely made more than 2 consecutive albums with the same line-up.
I find it weird that an auxiliary band member who has co-written approx 1% of Crowded House’s output can cause someone to question their love of their favourite band.
But, each to their own.
What makes Mark an “ auxiliary “ member ?! I’m curious . I’m actually curious to what an auxiliary member is !
Looking at Together Alone , time on earth , and Intriguer album covers , Mark just looks like a member of a 4 piece band . He’s hardly a mention on the album credits if that’s what you are getting at .
Does that make Ringo Starr or John Entwhistle or Brian Jones an “ auxiliary “ member ?!
I’d say you’ve summed up my argument for me perfectly. Yes. They were all auxiliary members that were easily replaced. Thanks 😉
