I now have every release, and am obsessed with finding obscure rarities. So I have to warn you, Finn music can be addictive!
Good to have you on the board, but things are a little quiet right now. Maybe there will be a new release soon to spice things up.
That's precisely what I hope will happen to me, it's nice to have a good addiction! And it's been a long time since I've felt this kind of excitement over a group, so it could indeed go that way. Thank you for the kind welcome!

There really is! I'm enjoying every minute of it. Good activity for all these snowy months.

Which are your favourite moments?
Me? I saw the Enz on their reunion tour, was completely blown away and ordered around 4 albums at once. Disrhythmia
would be my favourite.
After that, I got into Tim's solo stuff, in a huge way. My now tiny avatar was once a larger pic of the tattoo on my lower back, that I had done 4 1/2 years ago. Songs I have heard 1000 times still blow me away. The album that truly sealed the deal for me is The Conversation
. It came out just before Christmas of '08 and I must have bought around 7 copies. I just wanted everyone to hear it!
As for Crowded House, I actually did get to see/hear their beginning. I thought "Mean To Me" was OK, but I loved "Don't Dream It's Over", as did many people. I enjoyed pretty much all of their singles from then on. The albums I most recommend are Woodface
and Together Alone
I slightly remember Don't Dream It's Over, and loving the phrase "try to catch the deluge in a paper cup", despite likely thinking a deluge was some sort of sled. I enjoy Dizrhythmia a lot as well, and a lot of the early stuff. Nobody really does it like that anymore. And I've not even gotten to the solo stuff yet, apart from Neil's newest. So much to do...
