Re: Time for a new SPLIT ENZ studio album?

Keri ·
Oh yes I would too, I think they would be fine to call it Split Enz too. Personally I'd like to see Phil as the leader contributing 60-70% of the material, to give it that Enz quirk also with them trying to be equal there is more likely to be ego clashes. As for Tim being Split Enz I don't think so, he needs at least Phil or Neil and Noel & Eddie. Phil was the early creative force. After Phil left Tim was the band leader, if anyone was, but Neil did write the big hits. Split Enz were...

For me, Split Enz were essentially: Tim Finn Neil Finn Eddie Rayner Nigel Griggs Noel Crombie It didn't matter who came or left, as long as it wasn't one of the above. I think Phil was a major part of the early Enz, but the Enz did carry on without him, although his place and importance within the band was openly acknowledged. There have been quite a lot of members of Split Enz, and I think they all contributed to the Band and left their own indelible mark on it. I don't think any one member...

Well I love that line up to, but like you I don't need any more. I'm quite happy with Tim solo and Crowded House and Finn Brothers. The reason i favour a Phil led Enz is that it would offer something different, I haven't got enough of that Judd/Finn combination, I'd love to hear Phil's edginess mitigated by some Finn pop. Still with a new Tim album and Love is a Moron coming there is nothing complain about.

Re: Tim NZ date

A very entertaining hour with Mr Finn last night. Just Tim on vocals and acoustic guitar with Brett Adams on lead guitar and backing vocal and Simen Aanerud on keyboard and BVs. Brett's partner Diane Swann joined on vocals for one song and Eddie Rayner was called up on stage to play keys on "I Hope I Never" - just Tim and Eddie alone on guitar and piano, very similar to the original 1979 demo. Other highlights for me included one of the best live performances I've heard to date of "Dirty...

Complete List of Split Enz & Beyond Studio Releases

Below is a generated folder list of every available Enz-related studio album/EP/project I can think of.

Re: Abu Dhabi

Flicker ·
Split Enz FAQ #99 ... In a radio documentary that aired some years ago ("Letters to my Frenz" I think it was called) Eddie Rayner said that the lyrics to "Abu Dhabi" were attacked as being "racist" by someone, and so Tim stopped singing them live. Maybe that's why they were left off the lyric sheet.

It's funny that you mention the keyboards being tasteful BWIG, I was reading the Something So Strong book today (as you do), and most of the keys on the record were played by Mitchell Froom.

I think Tim is the major influence on EIH, as opposed to Neil (who I fell was the major influence on Finn). Certainly the song writing credit for All The Colours is just T.Finn, while Edible Flowers is credited to Split Enz (N. Finn/T.Finn/Rayner/Griggs/Crombie). Luckiest Man Alive, Homesick, Disembodied Voices and Sunset Swim strike me as much more Tim than Neil, but I could be wrong.

Well the riff to shiver is hardly taxing is it? Are you sure that's Tim on Subway Dreaming and not Jay Joyce? I have to agree with Vieoray, Tim is a strummer.

I'll second that. That's correct, he was gone by 1977. I think you'll find that the band's most critically acclaimed work is the earlier material that one Phil Judd penned before he left the Enz. And I must say I am astounded with your your idea that Paul Hester deserves to be inducted into the 'Hall Of Fame' over Phil! For the record, the Enz's "commercial success" actually diminished a little once Paul joined. That's quite a big call labelling Judd's songs never melodic! , but all a matter...

I'm guessing it might be a band made up of the guys who originally played on the Visconti sessions of Everyone Is Here (Bones, Ross, etc.) and maybe some Dave Dobbyn and Bic Runga.

Homebake was only the second gig (the other one was Enmore) of the EIH tour without the Staceys and Tim Smith, as far as I know. I agree that a live album of Homebake would be pretty special, also because of the fact that Eddie Rayner was present. But I think that a live album with the Staceys and Tim Smith would be a better EIH experience. They toured together for a long time. The Dublin gig was pretty cool!

My fav piano solo is by Kenny Kirkland on the first track of the Sting live album 'Bring On The Night,' it goes for about 3 minutes, and effortlessly merges rock and jazz. Probably my favourite pianist, and thus favourite soloist, is Ben Folds, he's untouchable when he lets rip (check out 'Theme from Dr Pyser'). I also really like John Lewis from the Modern Jazz Quartet. And of course any live Eddie Rayner solo is a treat.
