Re: NEWS: Nick Seymour Slams Neil Finn

Sandra ·
Hey, isnt' this "Headline" doing a good work? I mean, look how many people had to say something about it. How many of us, read the article cause of that, without ever knowing the Hearld Sun before? The reaction about this article, is what the maker of it expected. The best think to do, is to calm down and don't take it too serious. As Kia Kaha said there are no dates mentioned and no proofs that this was a serious interview.

Re: Neil's guitars, effects, amps

RavingChat ·
Yeah, certainly agree with that. Maton do make great sounding guitars; the small-bodied ones, the "BlueGrass" series (BG, EBG) have such a big sound! Sure, Maton will do any customisation you want (at a price). Maton offer a set of custom options to make the guitar look different, so sure, you can make your EBG808 look like one of Neil's if you want. Check out the website www.maton.com.au But Martin and Collings also make very nice-sounding small-bodied guitars. Check out (if you're in a...

Re: Crowdies vs Neil Finn solo

Paul H ·
I kind of agree although I think the thing is simply that Neil's music has matured somewhat so the songs are more sophisticated. It means they're good enough without really being as exciting. Its just two different musical approaches I think, but obviously the CH stuff gets you emotionally more than the solo stuff which is perhaps more "to be appreciated". Does any of that make sense?? As AlanM (I think) said elsewhere, that doesn't mean that his current stuff isn't good enough. One Nil is...

Re: One Nil - NME Review

In response to various things - the review isn't an early April Fools joke, as its now, what? 4 years old? It's not that they've only just got round to reviewing One Nil, more they've uploaded the review to their website and someone found it in the database. Yes, the NME always do reviews like that, and articles, and other stuff. They cannot hold the same view from the start of a piece to the end of it, never mind the start of the magazine till the end of it. Those of you who don't live in...

Re: One Nil - NME Review

sevenworlds ·
Wasn't it the NME who used to dismiss CH pretty harshly in the early days - usually cheap jibes about them being Antipodeans, etc - and then awarded Distant Sun 'single of the week' and proclaimed Neil Finn "pisses genius" in 1994. I think even Neil was amused at the irony in that. I haven't bought any music magazines for a few years (when I did it was usually Q), so I didn't realise this was such a common approach from NME - to call artists c***s - from the odd times I've read it. I'm...

Re: One Nil - NME Review

Well, the "Neil Finn pisses genius" quote was from Pete Paphides' TA review in the Melody Maker, but it was printed on a full-page ad in the NME once. I used to get the NME every week when I was working in record stores, but that was a few years ago. I remember seeing that review first time around and not being too surprised by it. I was more surprised at the amount of coverage they gave all the St. James gigs, but considering it was more the Jonny Marr/Radiohead connection, maybe I...

Kinky KBB ·
I can remember years ago reading an review of one of his albums years ago in either the NME or Melody Maker where thie stupid women (can't remeber her name) clearly fancied Neil and not Tim and appeared to base her whole review around that fact. She went so far as to say Tim was the ugly less talented brother!!!! As you can imagine I was livid! I mean, I only fancy a couple of people from the Enz but I love then all and would not judge their work on whether I fancied them or not!

Also, if you go to the nz herald site, www.nzherald.co.nz and do a search for Tim Finn, it comes up with loads and loads of articles, many of which are just arts diaries, or some strange sporting thing, also that wine maker who is called Tim Finn (lol), but a few really good articles on Tim at various stages of his life since returning to NZ a few years ago. They give a glimmer of what he and Marie are up to. But you have to scroll through alot of dross to get to the goodies.

Spot on Mrs.! I think the band and Neil have even said as much in the past when being interviewed about the reformation. Definitely not an 80s nostalgia ($$ maker) type thing.

Mojo did an article on FWTTW in about January or February 1997. David Hepworth wrote it, so no suprise there... Haven't seen it for years, but remember it being a fairly decent sized piece - a few pages, containing the full interviews in text that the excerpts on the video were taken from, and plenty of photos. And wasn't it Melody Maker that claimed that "Neil Finn pisses genius", when reviewing Distant Sun.

Caitlin Moran talking about her love for CH . . .

. . . on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs, today. An affecting little anecdote about how she and Pete Paphides fell in together over a mutual "confession" of their love for Crowded House, when they were both journalists at Melody Maker, where the band were considered deeply uncool. The whole programme makes for a good listen, of course. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08b3k40 Hope that link works - I'm away from home using a hand-cranked internet connection.

I do remember reading in Melody Maker Thom Yorke referring to WWY whilst talking about good music.

This point was discussed in another thread around the time that the BBC was refusing to playlist Saturday Sun in preference to, among other things, Rick Astley.

I'm not sure he is. Even with all that promotion, his comeback stiffed, reaching #97 in the UK singles charts. So much for regular playlisting.

Not sure there's a way round that, in terms of mass popularity barring some sort of freak occurrence. Better then to carry on not searching for a 'hit'.
