Apols if this has been posted elsewhere but i stumbled across this newly added to youtube full length concert of the ‘get woodfaced’ tour with tim still in the band ...

really quite rare to find full length concert of this era.

they were playing really well at this point, tho the dynamic was already a little stilted (awkward rendition of throw yr arms with nice moments but neil looking like he’s uncomfy) ... i suspect this is the antipodean tour before heading the europe and things falling apart...

anyway, some really good moments in this concert and a genuine slice of history

It’s a great show. But there is something off. They hadn’t worked out the three frontmen (counting Paul) thing. So they all tend to talk at once.

During the older songs Tim disappears but once he comes up front his greater height and stage presence makes Neil look “little brotherish” and once Tim really gets going, with “Six Months” they seem more like Tim’s backing band than a fully integrated group. I think had Tim stayed it all would have eventually worked out, but the transition into a new kind of band was a painful one that wasn’t good for Neil and Tim, so they called it quits before it happened.

As far as the music goes I think it’s fine though, not sure why they really needed Mark: I can only assume that this is a good show and others were not. Or they saw the writing in the wall was that it was not going to last.

The piano break in Sister Madly is a pretty good example of why they needed Mark. Or Something So Strong with an acoustic guitar and no organ.

Tim’s got a very particular way of putting himself across on stage, and it’s very unlike the vibe Crowded House has. With the obvious caveat that the harmony isn’t mixed high enough, I think this Chocolate Cake smokes the one in that ‘91 video: https://youtu.be/V_kM9QqMJF0
