Well, yes, the Catch 22 interview is full of video clips, but it is certainly worth seeing. It cracks me up every time I watch it, especially the way Neil mangles the pronunciation of a major Asian city so as to render what he's talking about completely incomprehensible (the first time I heard him say it, I thought to myself "what??" and at the exact same time Nick said "what??" in the same tone of voice that I was thinking it. LOL!) You'd have to see it. And Paul also has a few choice...

Re: POLL: Finn On Finn>> Influence On Woodface's Success

Paul H ·
Much as I adore Neil's music and (if I'm honest) don't think much of Tim's work (with a few exceptions), it can't be denied that a) CH's (and therefore by connection, Neil's) most famous song was mostly Tim's, and b) CH's most succesful CD was mostly co-composed with Tim. I think it just shows that they work very well together, rather than that Neil needs Tim to get commercial success. Clearly that didn't happen with the Finn CD. Its simply that the with-Tim Woodface was the right record at...

I agree that Tim made the record a commercial success - and not solely through his songwriting. Anyone I speak to about Crowded House always talks about Woodface being the record the brothers made after making up after falling out over Split Enz...and then they fell out again after Woodface etc...not very accurate, but the relationship between the brothers has always interested the public/critics and that has to reflect on sales. Also, Nick and Paul didn't play AT ALL on WWY? I find that a...

Re: POLL: Finn On Finn>> Influence On Woodface's Success

Paul left the band during the recording of WWY, All I ask and There goes god. Because both he and Nick had their doubts about Tim joining the band. Later on Paul decided to be back in the band. All I know about Nick is, he had left the band during the first Woodface sessions, from wich none of the songs made the album (Legs are gone, Dr livistone etc). For as far as I know Nick plays bass on all Woodface songs.

Re: Neil being arrogant>

Neil Fann (Guest) ·
I'll start the list of people that vehemently disagree by saying that I've never heard anyone imply that he was arrogant and he hasn't come across as as anything other than a friendly music enthusiast on the many times I've seen him personally. The only slight on his character I've heard was when he broke the band and Nick for excample was not happy but then again you would expect that, wouldn't you? I move that you would struggle to find a more friendly man in music.

Re: Crowded House Reunion.....

Heidi in Pittsburgh ·
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. I'm not sure I'd really want that. Recommended...

I'm going to be quite blunt here and say that i'm relieved that they called it a day when they did.

I think most of these have already been mentioned but I'll say them again anyway Nick Hornby's High Fidelity & Fever Pitch are both fantastic. The Bridget Jones books by Helen Fielding are well worth a read. Mort by Terry Pratchett is one of my favourite books. It's part of the Discworld series. Being the big kid in adults clothing that I am I LOVE the Harry Potter & Artemis Fowl books. Harry Potter & The Prisoner of Azkaban is quite possibly the greatest thing ever written.

Quite right, Shakespeare. Paulo was really into his own nudity there for some time, he and Nick were pretty wild. I think that the whole naked thing was a part of their hedonistic lifestyle during that period, not to mention their humour. I guess becoming a parent has morphed him into a more sober, fully-clothed individual. Have you SEEN the ubiquitous Wiggles?

Ahhh, my blue Crowded House t-shirt from the first CH tour, the one with the burning building on the back. I hardly ever wear it anymore because I'm so scared of something happening to it. I have, however, worn it to at least one show on every Neil Finn tour. I also wore it to the Woodface show. After, Nick came up and said, "Great shirt, I love the artwork!" Of course he does, it's his. I wasn't quick enough to say anything witty back, but I think of that every time I put the shirt on.

I'll have to disagree with you there. I don't have a problem with Nick's comments; I'm glad he could be truthful. After all, it was his band. Wasn't he fired (temporarily) before Woodface? If so, considering he was also the only non-Enz member of CH, I can see why he'd be a little insecure and/or territorial. It seems most of his bitterness comes from a lack of control in the group (including its end). I can't blame him for feeling that way. WRT Tim's music, I'd also have to side with Nick.

Well it's pretty easy for most people to be truthful and still be tactful. Sadly thats not an artform that Nick has mastered. I'll have to disagree that CH was even partly Nicks band. Neil was always in total control. He hired Nick, fired Nick for a time, and only when Neil felt ready did he invite Nick back. When Tim joined, Nick and Paul didn't get a say in it, they were just told by Neil. CH breaking up wasn't a band decision, Neil just decided that was it and told the others. Paul, Tim...
