it was NEVER released on CD. So its been... umm... 26 years coming.. it will be VERY limited.. maybe round about 300 copies, perhaps even with new artwork by Phil himself and as mentioned BONUS TRACKS, including the (infamous) Al Kooper remixes which ended up on the USA only Mini-LP 'the Swinger', some demos, and some especially rare outtakes! It will again self financed by Phil, so make sure you all buy one to support the guy who without, there would've been no Split Enz, so then there...

Re: Talkin' all about......Phil Judd

Some of the stuff on the Swinger E.P is worth checking out. the Schnell Fenster album "The Sound of Trees" is a good bet - and of course (Juddites will crucify me for not remembering the original title of the album here) The Swingers album that was re-released as Counting The Beat. Personally - I love some of the stuff on Beginning of The Enz too. Malmsbury Villa, No Bother To Me etc. My memory fails me as to whether they're Judd compositions or Judd\Finn compositions. And if you can track...

I've got a feeling the dressing gown and oven mitts pic was on the US 'The Swinger' EP. Oh ****, right, it's going straight back to Whammo records then. (And I should say.... For all your Frenz needs click here! :0) ) Looks like Phil had a bad attack of poison ivy(or maybe something else down under)....and this was the remedy for scratching too much....I'm imagining his Mum was just about to add a shed load of brown tape to the top of those mitts

"Starstruck" was a Summer hit here, in the same way that "Puberty Blues" became a hit. .. but "Puberty Blues " went a bit deeper into the "troubles of youth" *grin*....."Starstruck" was more glitz. They probably both made their money back... The album did chart, and Jo Kennedy hosted Countdown (music TV show)....the cameo by The Swingers is one of the few good bits in the movie... The Swingers themselves, one hit wonders here, Mushroom tried to get "Aint what you Dance.." off the ground,...

I like it too but to my ears it's definitely disjointed. I prefer side one to side two. Here's an interview from Australian mag RAM promoting the album. RAM, December 9, 1983 Invasion of Privacy Phil Judd has become something of a recluse since his Split Enz and Swinger days. Greg Taylor tracks him down and finds that making solo albums is just as traumatic as group efforts. “Once upon a time it was Hastings, New Zealand, a medium sized town surrounded by orchards and hops and tobacco...

Re: sound of trees...

I've always preferred Sound of Trees to "OK, Alright..." They're both standout bits of Phil's work, but Sound just hangs together better I think - not a duff track on it, and for a while it even edged out CH's stuff as my favourite post-Enz album. Private Lives I've never been able to track down, so good luck finding a copy Peedenmark7. I saw one copy on eBay a few months back, but bidding went too high for me. Vinyl copies of the Swinger seem to crop up regularly tho' if you've got a...

I am coming late to this party, having only just received my copy of the Rootin Tootin Luton Tapes (the 15-track edition, that is). But I'm thrilled and surprised to discover how good the album is. I was always much more partial to Split Enz's pre-True Colours output; still, I'd assumed the phantom Luton tapes would be little more than a drunken lo-fi mess by a band at its lowest ebb. It's great to be proven wrong. I think this is as good as anything they did in the harlequin-suit and...

That's a hard question Mr. Sadly, since I love all three. I can tell you about some favorite tracks though... On Come Fly With Me , On the Road to Mandalay is the real swinger with bouncy deep drum notes. On Swingin' Affair , Lonesome Road has a gorgeous bassline, starts off quiet and builds to such a funky crescendo, it's exceptional! On Songs For Swingin' Lovers , I've Got You Under My Skin is the classic -- the bridge is as emotional as a Neil Finn bridge "Don't you know little fool, you...

Re: Enzso "Dirty Creature" documentary

Hi - this was a documentary that played on NZ TV around the time (or not too long after the original NZ ENZSO concerts). From the YouTube clip, it looks like it appeared on TV in some other countries as well. It was never released commercially on DVD. A similarly good NZ documentary was done for Neil Finn's "Band of Strangers" tour where he created a new band each gig with local musicians. It would be great to have these available on DVD...

So Good. When you strip all the reverb off you realise that most of the track is just a band in a room letting loose. Interesting that's there's no snare yet. A pretty hard rocking track considering it's driven by tambourine and handclaps. There must be so much stuff out there for crowded house nerds. Bring it on!

Re: Black And White Boy- 1993 Rough Mix

slowpogo ·
Yes, that's super fun!! The only thing that's glaringly different from the studio version is the lack of backing vocals. Otherwise, you hear all the little guitar riffs popping out, and Neil's singing is fantastic. This emphasizes how the final mix has a bit of a sawtooth effect added to Neil's voice...a good call by Bob C, it fits the song and brings out his snarl. I think there is actually snare drum, but it's with the snares off so it's hard to hear (and sounds more like a tom).

Just want to say a huge huge thank you to Jeremy and all those who've made this happen. Releases from the vaults are the holy grail. New music (in whatever form) is always the ultimate and, while I'd ideally like this stuff to be available to download in a lossless format, I'm very very grateful for whatever nuggets we can get. So thank you again to all. Made one Together Alone fanatic very happy

Yikes, I gave this one another chance and I just absolutely hate listening to it. I think it just brings me too down...maybe that is the genius in it. If only Neil went the other way to surprise us and go all out in a rockin way...maybe on a Led Zepp tangent. This one just should not be on a cd and I don't care how experimental Neil is.....it is B side stuff at best.

I really do love this song, but I absolutely can't see it as a single. I was nonplussed at first, as many of you seem to have been, and I don't think that's the reaction most musicians are going for when they release a single. Then again, Neil often seems to be going for that effect. (P.S. I haven't posted here in forever. Everything is totally different. I might need to lurk around for a while to get used to things again.)

What are the chances of the Split Enz unfinished attempts? So far all I've heard is Lord Nord. Would love to hear Edible Flowers in whatever condition it was left, plus the other fragments.

For this sort of thing, I sometimes wonder why a musician or group wouldn't just release every obscurity at once, in no particular order, for 99 cents apiece. I love the boxed set idea, and the general principle of arranging this music into a particular order that makes for a compelling listen, but if all of these tracks were suddenly available online, we'd all buy them. Maybe we wouldn't each pick up all ten demo versions of "As Sure As I Am" (to pick a song at random), but we'd buy enough...

Thanks, Jaffa. It's kind of hard for me to even imagine "Flowers" as an Enz song. How different is it from the Brothers version (acknowledging that it was rough and unfinished)?

Fairly similar as far as the piano and vocals go, but the Enz version is a bit faster, has no strings and the drums and bass are more prominent, with the bass busier.
