I'm sitting here quite dumbfounded right now. I just got STF on ebay for $15 US. I had planned on spending A LOT more than that! No one else even bid on it. Where did everyone go? Another copy sold shortly before this one for $63! I kept rereading the item description trying to find the small print that says it's just a photocopy of the book or something. I just don't get it. I had the same thought, TR. This reunion is going to stir up the nostalgia and these books are going to be hard to...

Texas Rose looks like we'll all meet up at Seany's 'Ayyyye' place Paddy Maguires (without going back pages), sounds good to me, and Tracy doesn't look like anyone travelling over to Aus is going to be alone for long once the meet ups start happening !! Remember at the last finn brothers concert in brisbane there was much meeting out the front then much scurrying from seat to seat in the auditorium. Then once the music's on just go for it to the front. If i forgot to answer anyone just give...

Nothing Wrong With You ·
What is all this 'gang' and 'pack' rubbish? If you have got tickets to the concert, just go and have a good time. Sometimes, I think people get more more excited about meeting people they have never even met instead of looking forward to seeing the band. Focus on what is important here, talk about SPLIT ENZ!

You go girls, nothing wrong with getting excited is there!?!? Sorry Deb, but I found your post a bit lacking in humour. I'm sure the girls do all this in good spirits, and we're all flippin' excited!!!!!!!!!! (Please don't shoot me down - it's just an opinion). I for one am looking forward to meeting everyone I've spoken to here and elsewhere!

The reason i joined this forum is to get to the bottom of this dvd mystery. Many google searches brought me here. I remember seeing the gig on TV here in N ireland about 9 yaers ago i guess, and it was such an unexpected treat. I had been a fan before them but hadnt seen them do anything live before that. Surely after all this hype from fans they should release a ten year aniversery edition ? Or is because the tapes have gone missing or something ? Anyway nice to meet you all, this seems...

Re: why no reunion after ten years

Martine ·
this whole discussion reminds me of something George Harrison once said in response to "Will the Beatles get back together?"....he said something along the lines of "Not as long as John Lennon is dead..." Bands don't seem as anal about re-uniting years after breaking up these days as they did back in the an earlier era--and as sad as I am that the Beatles didn't reform for a concert tour--I'm also glad in a way that they never did. Their legacy seems somewhat more pure because they never did...

Re: why no reunion after ten years

Paul H ·
For myself, I think there may be three basic reasons why we've never had a full CH reunion (bear in mind that they HAVE reunited - Cold Live at The Chapel, f'rinstance): 1) The relations between band members. Obvious but, y'know... Split Enz broke up because Tim wanted to persue a solo career and Neil didn't want to lead Tim's band. No-one fell out. CH split - I guess - because Neil and Nick had a fractious relationship (did Nick get sacked once?) and once Paul had left, Neil felt...

Re: why no reunion after ten years

This is a key reason (for me, at least) that I suspect there have been SE reunions but none for CH in any incarnation (Paul or no Paul). The dynamics and reasons for the breakups of the two bands were different. You can see SE winding down over time, without any real falling outs, while CH came to a more abrupt end with less than aimable feelings between Neil and Nick. Coincidentally, I've been listening to an old VH1 interview with Neil in 2001 (?) and the interviewer asks him about 'ending...

I've been thinking about Paul all day. I had a dream about him last night, one of those incredibly vivid dreams that just feels so real. How far I feel I've travelled in the past 11 months. Yet I sit here, listening to LLT II (told you I would tonight didn't I Ash?), tears falling, and I feel the same as I did last year. Gutted. Bewildered. And so, so sad.

I have to agree with my fellow Pack members here. I admire your enthusiasm, peterholden81, but I don't think it's a very good idea. PG has got far too much to do already, I don't think he's got time to organise something as huge as this. And apart from anything else, it would be far too expensive, and if you managed to get Triple M involved, why would they do it for free? I do think a pre-show meet up is a good idea, but let's keep it informal.

Yowza! & there i was thinking that Robert Hughes (New York based art critic & author) had declared that "art" was dead! Could this be the birth of a new "ism"? Cromby-ism? One could say that Cromby-ism ENZ-capulates the SPLIT between life & art, combining it into a wholistic oneness, that transcends the now-ness of time, & the social & cultural mileau of the ephemeral. But then i could be wrong. (pauses to do an interprative dance on the dilemas inherent in modern art).

I'm sitting here working away on the computer listening to my Enz play list and I'm singing along to a song then I realized it was This Is Massive. All of a sudden I had tears in my eyes and started thinking about the times when I saw Paul playing the song live and how fantastic and fun it was. Then I thought about where he is now and how it's nearly 1 year since he departed us. It hit me of how joy much his music has brought me. Now I've got Noel doing Ninnie Knees Up. It's making me laugh.

I agree, what a find! Fan of 25 years here and only just found the forum myself! Quite ironically too, as I was searching for CDs all over the web to update my battered SE record collection and found Frenz just as the tour was announced (took me a bit to get the courage to register and post). Yes, I still play records and prefer them to CDs, but it needed to be done. Nice to know I am not the only latecomer despite my neverending fanhood! Welcome and See Ya' Round!

Re: Contact Muchmoremusic in honor of Paul

There's also MuchMoreRetro, which might be a likely venue for such a thing. Unfortunately probably few of us have access to it. It plays old videos from the 70's, 80's and 90's. We had a free preview of it while back on Rogers and it was pretty neat to see all the old videos. There was a healthy representation of the Enz and Crowded House. I didn't subscribe after the free preview finished, but it was tempting. It has a web site here: http://www.muchmoreretro.com/

Yeah, as dilemmas go, this one isn't bad, is it? I think I'll just take a summer jacket and a fleece jacket to go underneath it, if it is cold. It doesn't sound like it's going to be any colder down there in June, than it is here now, so if that's the case, I can't be bothered to lug a winter coat around. I probably won't wear it, so it'll just be in the way.

I've just been made aware that this topic has gone COMPLETELY off topic. This topic has become extremely personal, which is not allowed on the frenz side of this site. I'm closing the topic, and I ask that people NOT post about their personal lives here. I think if my boyfriend posted this type of stuff about me in a forum read by thousands of people, I'd consider dumping him too. If anybody wants to write about Split Enz live AND keep it about that, please start a new topic. Thanks.

I understand what you're saying TR. I think his article was very one sided, and I certainly don't know where he gets his authority from.

It is even rare to find someone these days who knows the name Crowded House! So, then, I throw a CD on and start, DDIO, and they say, "oh yeah, that song." For the most part, I think Crowded...

I find that incredible Tracy Obviously CH were very well known here, and I suppose that even if people don't know the name "Neil Finn" at least they know some of his songs. However, I still think that that was a pretty ignorant way to write a review. That writer had to know that even if Neil has been largely ignored in his part of the world, thankfully the same can't be said for everywhere. It would have come across as slightly better informed, IMHO, if the writer had perhaps acknowledged...
