Hey Campus no sadly ABC/Countdown threw out/erased about 80% of their stuff many many years ago, the 'No Bother to me" that some fans have came from our own library...it's just a bad quality video that I own and fading fast. Sad though as so much cool Countdown stuff is gone forever. Some of the Anniversary stuff is good, some can't be used as the sound recording didn't work out....my main fear is because it was filmed by Stratford Productions would it be in the hands of the liquidators too-...

I forgot to mention another sad piece of trivia that got me all excited! When I was watching the Anniversary clip of Shark Attack, I noticed that the percussion roles were reversed. Noel playing drums, and Paul playing percussion. Was this standard for the anniversary tour? I always presumed it was noel playing the hi hats on the anniversary version of Strait Old Line, and speaking of this version of the song, has anyone noticed the absence of any vocals by Tim (except 'everybody into the...

I suppose it was inevitable that the end would come after twenty-five years, but it's still a little sad in a way. I just received my copy of Capricornia in the mail a couple of weeks ago and haven't even had time to get into it. Peter Garrett is a talented and caring man. I'm sure he'll make a difference in the world again at whatever he chooses to do next.

Without making this any sort of official comment as I always prefer to leave stuff like that up to Neil, all of us have always been fine about fans swapping live material. The main thing has always been to keep it subtle. The times when we will get heavy (put on my Docs now) is when someone takes full advantage of fans. Example: a few years back (no names please) a club member who was one of the first Life members got a copy of "stage talk" with his kit (we included them in a lot, just as a...

I really wouldn't worry. The media has an annoying tendency to OVER-sensationalise things since TIME IMMEMORIAL . That's the media's job. It wouldn't be media without (me) in it. Just have a look at what Tim Finn had to say it about it in his latest single "What You've Done" : "And the newspaper reporters spoiling ALL the fun" If you think about it there have been over 400 days since 9/11/2001 . There have ONLY been terrorist attacks on NO more than 20 or so of those days. That's a very low...

Good list, Bono . I think you pretty much covered it. Most of those songs are probably the ones you'd use to get someone into the artists. Donovan - Your list wasn't really all that much different to Bono 's (the one you ripped shreds into) - you just selected different bands with basically the same style... although your selection must be way superior! The Mavis's - cry george (probably not "party music", but classic stuff) Paul Kelly (take your pick!) Savage Garden (again, take your pick.

IMO, it would be an ridiculously unfavorable comparison. The lead is good for the most part, but he is certainly not in Neil's league. There are some parts that bugged me (sorry, can't think of them now, except the end parts we're great). Not that I'm saying the cover isn't good -- it is. I also sang in an acapella group that covered DDIO. (It was pretty bad ... as much as I love the guy who sang lead, he couldn't cut it.) I realize how hard it is to perform that song.

Heidi in Pittsburgh ·
Does a Tim Finn injury count? We saw him in Napier, New Zealand on Oct. 12, 2001...and during the jam session part of "Weather With You," Tim was twirling his guitar around, in preparation to go back into the chorus, and the end of the guitar whacked him right in the head, pretty hard! You could hear the whole crowd go, "OOOOH!" and it obviously had to hurt, because we were in the front row and heard the WHACK it made. It left a big red mark, and I hope he used ice later. Nobody would have...

Not so much an injury but a near death experience. V2001, Powderfinger had just finished and they were running out of time before Neil Finn was meant to be on, so my friend & I thought we'd be fine staying where we were (about 2/3 rows of people back from the barriers, roughly in the middle of the crowd) when on came some band whose name began with I. I think. I would say who but I'm not sure of the name (choice of 2 could be huge error if I get the wrong one) And the moshing started. Oh...

I watched the first one and walked out of it near halfway through. I just don't understand the plot and it's boring.

GENERAL SPOILERS BELOW Donovan's right. I found it a bit scary in places. I wonder if he ever - or since making the film - has got closer to answering the question of why Americans use their guns to kill each other. He picks apart the theories about this one by one, the main ones being that the US has more guns, more poverty, more alienated youth, a greater ethnic mix, a more violent history than other countries, and proves them all wrong.

OK, I have seen it myself now, and I call my review Did anyone pray for giant shoes? Okely dokely! Let�s get this whole lyric thing out of the way first. Honest and for true, I tried very hard to be completely unbiased when I saw it and I can�t see what all the fuss is about. I went with someone who is not into Judd/Enz at all, so nothing invested there. He couldn�t understand the negative comments either.

I've always had Neil as the more melodic one while Tim brings the rhythm. Of course, they overlap but that's how I'd seperate them. Neil brings control and subtlety to the music - that odd chord change that takes the song somewhere else yet still seems as if it has to be there. The 'other-worldly' melody that always gets you in the end. Tim seems more spontaneous, maybe creating the initial spark, getting a good groove going, more care-free about letting it go and seeing what's there...

While I certainly think that musically, the guys had at least one more album in them, all indications point to the fact that things had run their course. Neil has said he feels there'd be no point to a CH reunion, since they're now all involved in their own successful projects. And you know, they made incredible music while together, but if they were ready to end the band, then continuing it now could cheapen the music and legacy they left.
