Thanks for this list; indeed very useful for reference. I miss Tim's Rarities, Demos, Live Performances Vol. I on your list. Not sure if you didn't list it because it self-released, but just wanted to let you know.
Nice list! I would add Phil Manzanera's K-Scope which like Southern Cross featured Tim on lead vocals for a few tracks. Other Enzers were also involved. Mark Hart was a member of Supertramp for a few albums before and after Crowded House. Neil was featured prominently on several Dave Dobbyn albums including as producer and co-songwriter on Twist. Phil contributed music to a movie called Amy in 1997 but I don't know if the soundtrack was officially released.
Personally I'd love to see one! I loved both of them and I feel that they would collaborate well together. The song 'Alone' from Out of Silence is a good example. However, I'm really hoping Crowded House 3.0 and ForENZics are long term things and we will get at least 2-3 albums from each.
Any new Finn music is welcome. I do love to hear the brothers together, their voices complement so well, and the bond they have really comes across. I agree that I wouldn't want it to detract from CH. I'm guessing Forenzics is a one-off deal.
Yes. I think that their songs compliment each other so well. But I’m happy with anything Finn. I hope Tim goes back to doing albums or at least he could release something that he has done in the last 10 years even if it’s just demos or rough performances like the brilliant Fiery Maze.
Yes. Tim and Neil are a great combination. Personally, I feel Neil's involvement pushes Tim to greater (dizzier) heights, and the sum of the parts, pretty darn good. Like Lance wrote. I'm happy with anything Finn. But I do prefer that which sounds like genuine effort. Except the good stuff that appears so seamless, of course.
Can we just have Tim guest on the new Crowded House album? Honestly, I think it was a mistake not to have made Everyone Is Here a Crowded House album. It could have been phenomenal, IMHO. I know Paul couldn't have replicated some of the incredible percussion tracks on songs like "Homesick", but I think the trade off of marketing it as a true Crowded House album (with Tim Finn!) would have totally been worth it! Would a new Finn Brothers album be worth it if there were no tour to support it?
Feeding the Gods is one of my favorite albums of all time. But you have to prepared to rock out because it's a very energetic romp. After that, Say It Is So is my next favorite. Those two albums make a great one-two punch from the early aughts.
Hi Steve. I had one person say the same thing about www.neilfinn.com many months ago. It's a safe site but some older browsers or firewalls might have problems with it. The Crowded House site is set up the same way and, being brand new, it might take a while to gain trusted status. Are you using a desktop, laptop, iOS or Android device? Have you tried accessing the sites on a different device and via a different internet service provider?
Hi Jaffaman I've tried accessing the site on my desktop, laptop and iphone and have no joy with any of them. I've also tried numerous browsers - Firefox, Safari, Chrome amd Opera. I was able to access the fangradio page earlier this year, but now can't even get to that one either (since it's part of neilfinn.com) Are there any potential ways to get round this? Steve
I've not tried anywhere else, but will do when i get chance. Although the places where I go to work (as a contractor) tend to frown on using internet for personal use, so I doubt I'll be listening to any fangradio broadcasts...
I just tried and still can't access either site. I'm initially warned not to try due to 'malicious content' being contained, but when I choose to continue any way, the TLS handshake times out and I get nowhere. There must surely be some simple solution to this in terms of the site's security/configuration?
I've enabled a setting for both sites that hadn't been enabled, strangely, so see if that makes a difference in the next few days. Otherwise, there might be an issue with your browser... although it seems you've tried a number of different ones.
Hi Jaffaman, Thanks for the update. I tried again today, and while I no longer get a warning from my ISP stating that the site contains malicious content, the TLS handshake still times out and I can't connect. Is there any way to change the settings for that? I've tried a few browsers, so I don't think the problem is at my end. I'll be interested to see if what you've done has solved the issue for anyone else. thanks, Steve
Odd. I've checked both websites on many different browsers on various PCs, Macs, iPhones and iPads on different ISPs in different places. The security certificate always comes up as valid. Maybe some of the third party embeds on the site (YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, bandsintown, Soundcloud, etc) are throwing up a flag for your browser or virus protection.
I would check on your operating system, given that you get the issue on multiple different browsers. If its Windows, try here for info - https://blogs.technet.microsof...-its-the-ctl-engine/ - issue could be that all types of TLS are not selected, so could be the cause of the issue.
Has anyone else noticed the shapes and images which are hidden in the seemingly white background of the band’s picture on the website? I can’t figure out how to upload a picture to this forum, bit if you play around with the brightness and contrast, you’ll definitely see something is there; or maybe it’s just my imagination, running away with me...
Another thing to try, especially as it on multiple devices too, is that I assume when you tried on iPhone that you were on the same wifi network as your other devices? Try turning off wifi and trying - there is your router config that could also be causing issues... sites and certificates and all the bits in-between have so many variables.
@BRANDO BRANDT you are quite right ... there are "objects" in the background ... looking at the negative version of the picture it seems like it was taken in a garden/park, what looks like trees and buildings in the background have been processed to just almost out of sight
Solved the problem at last -- seems it was all down to having 'Web Protect' automatically installed as part of my BT broadband package. Turned it off and everything works fine. Of course I'll no longer get warned about sites that really are malicious, so an interesting trade-off. A shame the Neil Finn/Crowdies sites aren't considered safe in the first place, as I'd ideally like to keep some sort of security in place.
@foghorn Of course I'll no longer get warned about sites that really are malicious, so an interesting trade-off. You may consider keeping it turned on and only deactivating it when visiting the Neil Finn/Crowdies sites
That's the plan! Although it's obviously a pain to have to do it at all -- and the function can take up to 2 hours to activate/deactivate. Hope the sites eventually get considered legitimate and there's no need to do so...
