Split Enz Newspaper & Magazine Articles

Hi Frenz, I have a rather long list of Split Enz articles from newspapers, magazines & street press that I have in my possession. I know that I don't have all of the articles that they ever appeared in so I would like to find out what I need to track down to complete my collection.

If anyone is interested in offloading their clippings collections, I am always very interested so send me a PM.

I am very interested in finding issues of "Hot Licks" magazine from New Zealand. This magazine featured Split Enz more than any other artist from Feb 74 to July 76 - only 27 issues.

Here is my current list. Please feel free to add to it (the title of the article, newspaper or magazine date & issue number & if they appeared on the front cover). I have not put in the number of pages. I have not included small clippings. Only articles of half a page or larger have been added to this list.

Any help would be much appreciated. I have article lists for all other Enz related bands & will list on the forum soon.

All articles with the * symbol next to them mean they appeared on the front cover.

Yo Enzboy, where you from?
You probably know about the 3 scrapbook volumes of press clippings (photocopied) in the Te Awamutu Museum? Last time I was there, I had to ask for the clippings, kids had been rough with them or something. Not sure if photocopy/scanning is allowed, but I killed 2 hours reading,while the rain p!ssed down outside (never!;-)) I only stopped because my head was hurting. If you can't find everything there, anything to do with TA (the place) is bound to be within the many pages.

Hi Affinity, I am from Oz. I've never been to NZ. Actually I have not been to too many places. I am just a boring old hermit who used to collect everything Split Enz & Related but over the last few years I have downsized my collection & I mainly am after the clippings & articles as I find it easier and I am very fond of my massive clippings collection on Split Enz & related artists. Always on the lookout for some good bundles. I like the Split Enz Facebook page as it gives me access to some great pictures and also the articles that I have never seen (Especially the Hot Licks ones, so hard to find).

 

A question for gryphon, do you have the first 4 or 5 issues of the extremely rare "Keeping It Kiwi" mags that featured heavily on Citizen Band & Split Enz. I have the first 4 plus the Citizen Band East Coast Tourzine but cannot get my hands on No.5. Murray Cammick claims there was a fifth issue but I have never seen it.

I hope that sort of thing makes it to the Facebook page in due course, gryph. I don't have time to get there often, but love the articles (and source info) I found last time I was there, being something of a collector myself, though not to Enzboy's level (too bad I had other proverbial fish to fry in my younger days, or I'd surely have many more).

Enzboy, it could be worth your while keeping an eye on ebay and Trade Me, setting up a favourite search perhaps. I've obtained Enz-related magazines and newspapers, sometimes collections of clippings (not a preferred method of collecting as, being from an academic background, I'm very meticulous that the Magazine info is included) from one or both of these sources in the past.

A lot of the very early NZ articles are going up, usually 1 or 2 a day...just trying to get a balance around all eras- obviously the more popular the band the more articles etc..  still I'm happy how it's all going. Dozens of emails a day from people, some major collectors who haven't seen the article etc before so that's pretty good.
