Re: Why Beginning of the Enz?

Phil is on all the tracks on acoustic, the stuff for Six of the Best, Phil is only a guest, he had left the band at that point. According to STF, the tracks were all arranged without Phil, so he is on all of them, he's only a member of the band for half the album though. When he rejoined, he brought an electric with him, and Geoff Chunn headed out the door as Emlyn Crowther came in.

Re: The Influence of Led Zeppelin

Led Zep were a big inspiration for Tim and Phil during the Malmsbury Villa days. As I recall from Stranger Than Fiction , they were the only contemporary artist the guys listened to back then. In Enzology , Paul Crowther also mentions being under their influence, specifically his drumming on 'Sweet Dreams' being directly inspired by 'Kashmir'. I dunno about Juddsy's vocals being influenced by Robert Plant. Some people say Plant's vocals were inspired by Janis Joplin. Heaven help us if Judd...

Hmm, i seem to remember Emlyn Crowther hearing a Zepplin song on the radio while on the way to record an Enz song, & deciding to play the drum part in a Zepplinesque fashion. Can't remember the song now. The end of Great Divide is a little bit like "been a long time since i rock & rolled", well imho. I remember every guitar store in Sydney in the '80's had a sign up forbading the playing of "Stairway To Heaven". There has been no other song so fumbuly strummed, plucked & shreaded...

Erm, well ah no. I was actually wearing my Bette Davis Eyes, which i'd borrowed of Kim Carne. They seem to match my authentic Robert Plant Wig, & fit nicely into my "Man Bag".

Don't forget Paul was the drummer in the Enz latterly. It's only because they'd had other drummers (Crombie, Crowther etc) that the "Not without Paul" brigade aren't stuck with the same issue every time the Enz reform these days!!

Re: Crowded House Back On The Road!! Seriously!!

Point taken, but Split Enz were very successful before Paul joined, which means he couldn't be credited with having anywhere near the same input on their commercial success as is the case with Crowded House. And I guess now I'll have to start two other 'brigades' - 'not without Neil' and 'not without Nick'.

On the album, I reckon it's a Fender Strat avec Crowther Audio Hotcake Pedal. Live, It was the Gretsch Duojet with the Hotcake Pedal. Not sure what sort of Amp Neil used. Could guess at a Vox AC30, or a Fender Twin of some sort, but could be well wrong. On the album, there's also a very light Chorus\Flange effect used. Sounds a little similar to some of the chorus\flange used on When You Come, so it could be a something Neil uses, or something Mitchell Froom or Tchad Blake brought in to the...

I don't think anyone really minds that there is a new drummer, I certainly don't, just that it was odd they hadn't asked one of the other prev Enz drummers that's all. Afterall, Crowther played with Split Enz in 2002 and he's still pretty hot as a drummer.

It would be so good if Mike Chunn made it...I'm hanging onto the " So far confirmed". Mike has been exceptionally generous in allowing the book scans of 'Stranger than fiction' to be published online (with his consent). I KNOW I said I wasn't complaining, but having all the main Enz contributors actually at the Induction...well...I feel as though something will have been made complete, and all the boys will have a chance to share the spotlight one more time.

Re: Favourite Enz Drummer

Camus ·
Paul Crowther (Emlyn) gets my vote. Tough call between him and Geoff Chunn, I love his drumming on the latter Beginning of the Enz tracks, but there's more of Crowther and he wins out. Noel was pretty good, and Mal was good too, just not enough intersting things going on in their drumming, just very good solid rock drumming. Noel's hihat work is particularly note worthy. Unfortunately, Hester never really impressed me that much in the Enz, (he's brilliant in CH of course).

Surely if Mal wasn't available for a tour they'd use Paul Crowther? Especially if they play mental Notes era stuff. They could even use Geoff Chunn rather than getting in a non Enz drummer. Or Noel as already pointed out.

Re: The return of Split Enz...maybe?

Camus ·
And Paul Crowther was the drummer for the reunion gigs in 2003 (?) sharing drumming/percussion with Noel at the Paul Holmes gig and being the sole drummer at Neil's basement webcast. If Mal wasn't going to do it and Noel wanted to do percussion, then I hope they'd ask Paul Crowther. Wasn't Noel the drummer for the restr of the Millenium gigs? He also drummed a lot on the Anniversary tour, with Paul Hester playing some great percussion.

During Betchadupa he used a couple of SG Juniors and a 90's Korg era Vox AC30. I don't know for sure, but Im guessing he used a Hotcake too. He's had one on his board since he went solo and due to the Crowther connection, I'm sure he's had one since the early days.

I've been to two shows there. One was in November 1999. Tim Finn played a two and a half hour set. It was a very intimate performance, because the venue is quite small.
