Also, Something For Kate and george (note the lowercase "g") probably have every single show recorded for them & wouldn't have to buy old documentries or TV appearances for their DVDs, plus it would have to be a lot easier to produce & you probably wouldn't need to do as mch research as the Split Enz one.
george are probably the best band in Australia at the moment, by the way (IMO). Check them out! Go & buy all their singles, also!
Ok, ok... I now understand that you can't just copy material to a VHS like that, especially so many years ago... however, I thought ABC's clearout was more recent than 20 years ago .
One more thing... those 1983 Countdown Awards I saw & taped from Rage a while ago were actually the 1984 Countdown Awards from really early 1985 (maybe even Christmas 1984). Sorry about the mix up.
I'm just thinking that next time any given popular band does an interview or perfermance on any given TV show, they should demand they have full ownership of that part of the show or else they wont appear... so they can release the interview / song on their DVD without having to pay the owners royalties. Thoughts?
