I am interested to see what others think of the latest Judd release. I tend to agree, Hellbilly59. Whilst Neil and Tim's solo efforts and the Pajama Club and CH releases since 2000 are all quality records, Judd's efforts since returning to recording 10 years ago has produced the best work of his career. For my money, UniQue would top of the list of "Best SE and related acts albums since 2000". I have only seen one review of UniQue , which happens to place it in a Best of 2016 list.

I am a relative newby here and I must say that I had noticed a bit of something going on here, whether it be from the "site" or "fans" I am not able to make a judgement. Me personally? I am unbiased! I love any great NZ Music! Split Enz were great! Post Enz Finn stuff was/is great! Post Enz Judd stuff was/is great! I just wanted to see if any other frequenters of these forums had listened to Judd's new album... If the answer is yes, please share your thoughts... If the answer is no, go buy...

@hellbilly59 .. yes, youre spot on there.. Phil and Peter Green had a falling out a few years ago, hence why there is no promotion whatsoever from Frenz, which sucks to be honest with you. You'd think that especially given the fact that if there was no Phil Judd, there'd've been no Split Enz, which means there'd be no Frenz.. So any personal issues they may have could be kept personal and Phil could get the little promotion he deserves as the others do, but sadly thats not how things operate...

I meant to post that Phil's website has been updated with ordering info for the signed CDs - philjudd.com . A couple of other updates there, including the news that 'Novelty Act' is now sold out in physical format, though you can still get it digitally via Bandcamp .

Detailed review still pending. First feedback is that the album is quite astonishing. He is a strange but undoubted musical genius.

Sadly the album is not promoted by this site or the fan club. They are happy to promote other enzers solo work. And even hangers on. This album not only is Phil's but wally walkinson and miles goldings as well. Leaves a bitter taste knowing that these guys are overlooked.

Alternative Versions

Freeby ·
So I read that Phil Judd and Noel Crombie both agreed that re recording some of their songs for their Second Thoughts album was a waste of time. I personally find the alternative versions of these songs to be a vast improvement on the originals. Especially when it comes to Phil Judd's performance of "spellbound and Titus". What are your second thoughts?

NOVELTY ACT CD's ARE BACK!

according to Phil's bandcamp page, he has just received 20 copies of Novelty Act from a collector in Japan.. For those who have been wanting to get a copy, do it now, because I think these will sell pretty fast! https://philjudd.bandcamp.com/merch

I personally think all the Second Thoughts versions are improvements over the Mental Notes versions. I do prefer the earlier BOTE version of "Spellbound" over the Mental Notes recording though.

Amazing news! I grabbed a copy as soon as I saw this and listened to the download from bandcamp. First time I've heard any of Phil's solo career and I must say it is BRILLIANT!! CD is a bit expensive as Phil bought them at a high price so he can't sell them for less, but it's totally worth it. Time to take a look at the rest of Phil's albums now

Tim Finn Kitchen Sink: a chronological reference guide

Lance LaSalle ·
Although Tim Finn has no convenient Kitchen Sink collections like that which Neil Finn (and Jaffaman) have generously provided to us fans, this is a list is meant to collate various Tim Finn or Tim Finn associated songs that have been released here and there in various forms in chronological. Due to the fact that there are no deluxe editions of Tim Finn albums as there are of Crowded House, this list of odds and sods is quite a bit longer than Neil's. I've also included prominent guest spots...

Complete List of Split Enz & Beyond Studio Releases

Secret God (Stew) ·
Below is a generated folder list of every available Enz-related studio album/EP/project I can think of. I own a physical CD copy of everything listed (with the exception of a few that are digital only), and everything in these folders are lossless FLAC files (all tagged properly, with cover art). However, I am missing the bold/italic releases. So I guess my question is, aside from the bold/italic releases, am I missing anything obvious? Also, has anyone managed to find themselves copies of...

Rank every band/project/solo work

The Pineapple Head ·
Here's a fun game. Let's rank every band/project done with the Finn Bros and solo work. To jog our memory here's a list of all the projects in the form of my ranking (by my count). I'm also separating Crowded House/Split Enz into two "eras". 1) Crowded House v.1 (1985-1996) 2) Finn Brothers 3) Neil Finn Solo Work 4) Tim Finn Solo Work 5) Crowded House v.2 (2007-2011/2016) 6) Split Enz v.1 (Judd Era) 7) Pajama Club 8) 7 Worlds Collide 9) Split Enz v.2 (Non Judd Era) 10) The Mullanes If I've...

So do we rank these individual bands / artists / projects out of 10 based on their entire output? As for other projects, I would include the likes of Citizen Band, The Swingers, Phil Judd, Schnell Fenster, The Makers, Enzso, ALT, Neil & Liam Finn, etc. Unless this is specifically about the Finn Brothers, in which case some of those might not count.

Cheers Spencer. Have since got myself a copy of K-Scope . Not sure I'd consider albums Neil has 'produced' as part of my canon, even if he did happen to co-write a song or two. I know Mark Hart has played with Supertramp a fair bit, even singing lead vocals on some of Roger Hodgson's songs, but has he played on any of their studio albums or sung on any studio recordings? I mean if we're including Supertramp where do we draw the line? Yeah hard to include some of Phil Judd's soundtrack work...

Hey Stew - have you considered the two Citizen Band albums (Citizen Band 1978, and Just Drive Thru Town 1979)? I’m guessing that they aren’t there because they were never released on CD, and Rust In My Car (which is on CD) isn’t there because it’s a compilation?

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.

Glad the list helps. The reason the album you mentioned wasn't included is because it's clearly a compilation �� Might start up another topic with all my compilations if anyone is interested though.

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.

Hmmm... this is quite difficult to rank one off projects against a body of work but I’ll give it a whirl... This is just based on my personal preference. I guess the way I have thought about it is who/what I would most like to see (while in their prime) or be most excited to see a new album from as opposed to rating against their full recorded output. 1 Split Enz v1 2 Split Enz v2 3 Crowded House v1 4 ALT 5 Finn Family* 6 Finn Brothers 7 Neil Finn and Paul Kelly 8 7 Worlds Collide 9 Crowded...
