Re: Major Next 'coming up' CH 2003 dvd VERSUS current Dreaming The Videos dvd 2002

Secret God (Stew) ·
w.c.i.b.n. - I couldn't be too sure, but I'd say that the "Major" 2003 Crowded House DVD won't include all the video clips from Dreaming (I think PG even said that, but don't quote me on that). Anyway, you seem like a pretty big fan of everything Neil Finn / Crowded House , so sureley money isn't going to get in the way of purchacing both DVDs...! Trust me, you'll be happy with both... as long as your Christmas budget allows for that (you really do have to take these things into...

Crowded House - 'Something So Strong' by Chirs Bourke (MacMillan, 1997)is also a great read if you are interested in finn-related books. I also think Neil brought out a small book with his last tour but i'm not sure. I would love to get my hands on a copy of 'Stranger Than Fiction'. I think it was published in 1991.

Re: Relevance of the Finns in the music industry

magneto 2 ·
On a more serious note, for the last 25 YEARS it has been consistently believed in the music world that the Finn, Split Enz and Crowded House were making music OUTSIDE THEIR TIME. No-one ever called Split Enz relevant in the 70s and 80s - they were always, to quote a music journalist of the day, 'Just outside their time' and just out of the mainstream. To paraphrase Rolling Stone, 'Neil could have written anything, in any style of music and had hits coming out of his proverbial, but he chose...

The copyright is 1992. I seems to have been a happy time for the Finns. Crowded House was becoming famous and Tim Finn had high hopes on a solo career. I can not put that book down!

Yeah, especially when you people get Neil touring all year... and One All - yep, it must be a real shame . But seriously, I buy anything Neil Finn -related I can get my hands on (I even bought his book - Love This Life ... for AU$28 ). I actually bought the 7 Worlds Collide DVD without even owning a DVD player! - that's dedication for you! It sent me broke again, but at least I can have years of enjoyment out of it ... actually that won't be the case unless I can get hold of a DVD player...

Agreement with Paul H on that note. boarderGurl - thanks for posting those quotes from Neil. Neil Finn 's pretty quick & witty when he comes to replying to things. He's also quite funny & laid-back, so I doubt he'd get all emotional at a concert in front of thousands of people telling the guy that what he did was wrong & illeagal & how the artists are losing out on this... Yes, I know your comment ( "we have permission from the man himself"] ) was a joke & all, but Neil...

Wow Paul H, you took that WAY too seriously. I can see it now: I'll start my own Neil Finn pirating company, and when I get sued in court my defense will be, "But Neil SAID I could!" Yikes, chill out. The entire POINT of that post was to illustrate Neil's liberal stance on the subject in general, not to condone, or in ANY way imply that Neil condones illegal copying of music. Neil was just being Neil.......chatting comfortably with the hundred or so of us fans that turned up for the free...

Re: Bootlegs, Taboo????

Without making this any sort of official comment as I always prefer to leave stuff like that up to Neil, all of us have always been fine about fans swapping live material. The main thing has always been to keep it subtle. The times when we will get heavy (put on my Docs now) is when someone takes full advantage of fans. Example: a few years back (no names please) a club member who was one of the first Life members got a copy of "stage talk" with his kit (we included them in a lot, just as a...

Re: Split Enz DVD thoughts

I don't wanna sound negative here but I like playing The Devil's Advocate . If you compare the SE dvd against it's Australasian Top 20 chart competitors on the DVD market place like George, Something For Kate, Kasey Chambers, Silverchair & Regurgitator it does come up a tad bit weak. The SFK DVD has about 40 separate clips of live and studio versions as seen here: http://www.hmv.com.au/v4/product/dvd.asp?sku=849776 The reason why I'm comparing these two bands is that Neil Finn is listed...

Nice post, Peter . (I just thought you might have problems sleeping tonight if someone else didn't compliment you on your fantastic post ). Did anyone ever consider that the people paying that sort of price for dodgy bootlegs of fanclub CDs must already be pretty massive fans & would have probably already brought Neil Finn 's complete back catalogue? Just a thought. I'm sure that thought had already entered everyone's minds, but still worth mentioning... at least I thought it was ... The...

The only problem is getting it to him, though. Because they don't like people sending Neil tapes or CDs. I had an address where I could send my CD where I knew he'd get, and mailed him to ask if it was ok, and then Alice (from 'the office of Neil Finn' I think) said no, please don't send CDs or tapes to Neil. I think it's because he has too much stuff sent to him anyway. has anyone else ever had that?

Re: The Instrumental

Flicker ·
Yep, the track on Other Enz is the same Finn/Judd composition, but it's not a genuine Split Enz recording as such. It was released as the B-side of a 1980 single by Graham Brazier (ex Hello Sailor) and credited to "A Ripper Bunch of Blokes." The "blokes" who played on the recording included Mike Chunn, Eddie Rayner, Rob Gillies, and Mal Green. Part of the tune was later used in "I Wouldn't Dream of It" on True Colours .

Re: The Instrumental

Semi-Detached ·
'The Instrumental' is an awesome song, but sadly, it seems that it's another "lost" song from the early Judd/Finn era that was never properly recorded in a studio...along with scores of others, e.g. 'Wise Men', 'Buffs', 'City Of Dreams', 'True Colours', 'Prophecy', 'Hermine'........

Re: Crowded House DVD debuts at #18

I got my copy at Target Roselands for AU$26.95 - cheap compared to HMV etc. Love how Neil Finn sings on This Is Massive (originally studio Paul Hester sings it) - it's at the start of the Catch 22 interview Mean To Me intro playing softly but hear-able in the back ground - I'd love for that to come out as Afterglow 2 rare song - it sounds so good. Plus were any frenz fans at the CD / book store signing autograph in the US on the Catch 22 interview? You all looked so yound, fresh fanned and good!

Re: Bootlegs, Taboo????

My standpoint on bootlegs has always been, if record companies are not going to release the recordings then why should they bother if fans pass them amongst each other. The way I see it, the more CD's, tapes, video's and any other source with Neil Finn on them the better! Those interested should perhaps try this site - http://www.tapetrader.com it's a good community for traders of all artistes! Neil
