My understanding is that Tim joined on the basis of the extraordinary batch of songs that he had written with Neil at the time, including Weather With You and It’s Only Natural.
Not necessarily a solid foundation for a long term place in the band.
Tim made a wonderful contribution to the band’s evolution, but I don’t think he was ever going to be there for more than a year.
I remember seeing them together for the first time at Ausmusic Day in 1990? Myer Music Bowl? Am I remembering it correctly?
How I miss those shiver-down-the-spine days of new Finn compositions, and how I treasure the memories!
Fantastic videos, thanks for posting. The provocative title serves its purpose I suppose ;-)
