An open letter to all Crowdies

The Pineapple Head ·
Hello everyone. I've always felt that the Crowded House/Frenz community has been a like minded and mostly agreeing place. Sure, we have different opinions but there's always underlying respect. However, after the recent business with Mark Hart, I'm worried what will become of this fandom. Neil's decision has been extremely divisive and have no doubt that no matter what some people will be unhappy with the result. I, myself have my reservations. Still it will be interesting to see what...

+1 to Sylvan Esso. I continue to hate the Grande/Cyrus versions (any of them). It's clear by her singing and demeanor that Miley Cyrus has no idea of the meaning of "my possessions were causing me suspicion but there's no proof." A well-meaning performance by a couple of talented but callow kids, who embody the worst of modern pop vocal affectations.

I enjoyed the instrumental tinkerings of the Boy & Bear cover, but was not a fan of the vocals at all.

I still haven't listened to them, nor do I want to. I appreciate the charitable nature of the covers, I just don't like feeling disappointment with a Finn song.

Kit Richardson’s Private Universe gave me chills! Still not as good as the CH version but she and her group captured the spirit of the original. That is not an easy thing to do.

I feel that this decision, from the limited info we have, has already divided the fandom like nothing before it. We may well be the greatest and more friendliest bunch of fans on the planet, but we're all human. Elsewhere on the internet (Facebook) there have been major arguments that have transitioned into flat-out name-calling. We're all going to have our own opinions and disagree with others, but that's really where it should end in my opinion. Ideally we shouldn't be taking offence at...

Good points! One thing I've learnt from fan communities is that if the artist isn't reading and not commenting, then 100 percent people around them are.

Unfortunatley , being told what to think , or what not to think , or that it’s ridiculous to put so much importance on Mark - are all things very likely to cause offence - along with the blatant name calling . ive found the “ finn bros appreciation “ page on Facebook to be the worst . The rest of the sites including this one seem fine really

Having seen several fan communities become boiling cesspools of hate when a band does something that some fans disagree with, I can understand the concern of the OP here. Some people seem to take decisions made by bands very personally, and while I can understand that some people may be disappointed by various things happening, some 'fans' seem to become obsessed with bringing the band down. And, to an extent, that can ruin things for actual fans of the band who might want to continue...

Oh yes there are different opinions out there but I dont think it is as out of control as the LB/FM saga ..the angst that went and still goes on! (will they ever let go?) I dont think the same can be said about Frenz and our own band lineup change. I think the divide is more about the why ( which has not been stated) and who is worthy to replace Mark. No one in my fandom eyes but that is just me

I've seen worse than the FM saga, much worse. But, I don't want to say which band as I've moved on from that argument and don't want to start it again.

Crowdies/Neil Finn website issues

foghorn ·
Hi all, Has anyone else had problems accessing either crowdedhouse.com or neilfinn.com? I am unable to view either site -- initially I get a warning message from BT (my internet provider - see attached image) saying the site is malicious, and then when i choose the 'continue any way' option it simply hangs and fails to connect. I think this may be a 'TLS handshake' issue, but as a technophobe I have no idea how to correct, despite googling possible solutions. If anyone else has had the same...

Hi Steve. I had one person say the same thing about www.neilfinn.com many months ago. It's a safe site but some older browsers or firewalls might have problems with it. The Crowded House site is set up the same way and, being brand new, it might take a while to gain trusted status. Are you using a desktop, laptop, iOS or Android device? Have you tried accessing the sites on a different device and via a different internet service provider?

Hi Jaffaman I've tried accessing the site on my desktop, laptop and iphone and have no joy with any of them. I've also tried numerous browsers - Firefox, Safari, Chrome amd Opera. I was able to access the fangradio page earlier this year, but now can't even get to that one either (since it's part of neilfinn.com) Are there any potential ways to get round this? Steve

I've not tried anywhere else, but will do when i get chance. Although the places where I go to work (as a contractor) tend to frown on using internet for personal use, so I doubt I'll be listening to any fangradio broadcasts...
