On a more serious note, for the last 25 YEARS it has been consistently believed in the music world that the Finn, Split Enz and Crowded House were making music OUTSIDE THEIR TIME. No-one ever called Split Enz relevant in the 70s and 80s - they were always, to quote a music journalist of the day, 'Just outside their time' and just out of the mainstream. To paraphrase Rolling Stone, 'Neil could have written anything, in any style of music and had hits coming out of his proverbial, but he chose...

Hey Grace, I looked it up here: https://www.frenzforum.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic;f=2;t=000356 Go down to the posting and link for World Time Server. It says Midnight on the 10th in Minneapolis so I'm assuming that's the same for Chicago. So that makes it the night of December 9th.... I think!

I suppose it was inevitable that the end would come after twenty-five years, but it's still a little sad in a way.

Yeah, especially when you people get Neil touring all year... and One All - yep, it must be a real shame . But seriously, I buy anything Neil Finn -related I can get my hands on (I even bought his book - Love This Life ... for AU$28 ). I actually bought the 7 Worlds Collide DVD without even owning a DVD player! - that's dedication for you! It sent me broke again, but at least I can have years of enjoyment out of it ... actually that won't be the case unless I can get hold of a DVD player...

Oh, sorry, I couldn't help but laugh at that In a perfect world maybe. The BBC are even worse, the gaps in their archives are enormous. When you think of classic programmes like The Goon Show (radio), Doctor Who, Till Death Us Do Part, The Avengers, Not Only But Also, The Goodies, Dad's Army, Top Of The Pops etc.. are all very incomplete in their archives (most are missing for good) is it any surprise to learn that our own ABC isn't any better?

Maybe in a perfect world (before it really is too late and the footage in question is either destroyed or damaged beyond repair), the likes of the BBC would release their own DVD collection of Enz performances from 'Sight & Sound', 'Top Of The Pops' and 'The Old Grey Whistle Test', for example, amongst other BBC music shows that featured the Enz. I feel like these TV stations are taking the "dog-in-the-manger" approach to the footage they have in their archives. In other words, they...

Well, Gryph', I forsee some karma for those TV stations that wouldn't help you. It reminds me of the Little Red Rooster story we learnt at school as kids. But, sadly, it really seems like the BBC just doesn't know what a goldmine they're sitting on with the Enz footage they have. Just because the Enz weren't mega-stars (although we the fans know different), they don't seem interested in cashing in on a potentially lucrative market. There is widespread world interest in this material. Anyway,...

Your feelings are partly hormonal, I imagine. Or maybe it's maternal. I developed a sense of criticality when pregnant. You're looking at the world a little differently - it's to be your child's future home - Dammit! and it - and everybody in it -better shape up fast. Then you have your baby and it turns out that the outside world is not as much of a problem for your child as the fact that he has you for a parent!! That keeps your mind off world problems for, oh, several years.
