I'm an American. I'm also a 20-something, so I no longer have CD players (i never thought the day would come). So I pretty much buy all my music digitally, now. I found Tim's debut, I found big canoe, the view, say it is so, imaginary kingdom, even a couple others. Any word/reason/other on why his s/t album hasn't been released digitally yet? That's the one i'm dying to obtain. But it seems to be the only one not on any digital music retailer. Makes me sad.
FB lawyers! I truly hope not! Neither Neil or Tim have been that greedy or small minded in the past and its not as if these guy have sampled it without credit. They might have been inspired by it, the similarity might be a coincidence. The day the Finn become vexatious litigants is the day I stop listening.
Suffer Never was in open "D" , this one appears to be in "E" and the opening is exactly the same structure ( but not as complex) - still a good sound and could be a winner for FB's lawyers / royalties haha
Well I have a feeling that I'm either right next to you vicarious or a couple of seats away. My friends and I will be in D11-D13. You'll have the pleasure (or not) of being close to us Hopefully between here or Facebook I'll be able to sell the tickets.
Ah, no, you can breathe easy - we're D23-25, on the other side of the aisle. All irrelevant once we have charged to the front two-thirds of the way through (at a rough guess . . ). You'll know who we are cos my husband will be the one left behind, staying resolutely in his seat, with a grumpy face .

Hi all, Has anyone else had problems accessing either crowdedhouse.com or neilfinn.com? I am unable to view either site -- initially I get a warning message from BT (my internet provider - see attached image) saying the site is malicious, and then when i choose the 'continue any way' option it simply hangs and fails to connect. I think this may be a 'TLS handshake' issue, but as a technophobe I have no idea how to correct, despite googling possible solutions. If anyone else has had the same...
Last week Todd Rundgren was interviewed on WXRV in Boston about a song he loves. Todd chose "Don't Dream It's Over", and talked about why he loves the song. Interestingly, he also reveals that he has recently been in contact with Neil Finn and they have a collaboration "in the works". Todd's current album pairs him with other artists, and he's working on an additional collaborative album. Hear the interview: http://wrsi.com/riversound-cafe/todd-rundgren/ ...
I have 2 tickets for sale for Neil Finn for the Bristol Colston Hall show on Saturday 26th April (less than 3 weeks away). Some friends aren't able to go now and I'd hate for them to go to waste. Anyone here need any tickets? They're stalls seats D9-D10, £32.50 per ticket (face value). I'm happy to split the tickets if necessary. Here's the seating plan for the Colston Hall: http://stage.colstonhall.org/w...7/Seating_plan_A.pdf Thanks.
Now I love Todd's work, but he has a checkered past when it comes to collaboration. Andy Partridge had a pissing match on Twitter regarding Todd's production work on an XTC album. I've read that Todd tends to impose his will and wizardry on those acts he's produced. With that being said, Neil's More Than One of You on his latest has that Todd feeling. I'm curious. If they can connect musically on equal footing, I'm hopeful. I would be interested to hear what they concoct.
Very interested in hearing what Neil/Todd come up with together. Looks like Todd has album projects where he collaborates with established artists on one song each. Sounds like Neil isn't sleep much these days with so many projects on the table.
The song Neil and Todd Rundgren collaborated on is called "Artist In Residence". It's unreleased almost two years after it came on the radar, but can currently be heard here: https://www.nts.live/shows/gue...ren-1st-october-2019
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...
