I really had liked them. Don't have CD though.

I don't know where you guys are located, but this DVD won't be released in the US until January 16th.

It's been a long time coming. Came out here in Oz the week of the 10 year anniversary.

The DVD is incredibly well put together, with remastered audio and the 6 tracks that were missing from the 1997 video version. But for me the best inclusion was very casual band commentary of the entire gig from Neil, Mark & Nick - great banter & insights from the guys.

Not sure when it will be out in Europe, but I'm sure it's out in the UK now, and as greenlight said January for the US.

A great teaser before the upcoming Seymour/Finn release in March.

I really, really need to pick up a copy of this DVD. Anyone know where I can get it cheaply in Australia?

I've only heard a little bit about this. What exactly's happening?

Also, what are your thoughts on Tim Finn's Imaginary Kingdom? I just recently checked it out and it was better than I expected it to be, given what I've heard about Tim's solo work being a bit hit and miss. I absolutely HATE the cover, though.

I have this on audio CD. Downloaded it from the Finn FTP or whatever it's called.

Great stuff.

It's not one I'd recommend rushing out to buy, but it's a pleasant listen.

According to Neil it's a new realease around March. Neil wrote, Nick provided bass on all tracks and "gay cowboy vocals" on some, and Johnny Marr played (wrote maybe?) on some of the tracks that were recorded at Real World studios in UK. No idea about the touring band, now that Marr has joined Modest Mouse - but one can only pray that Nick & Neil tour together.

Actually e was in LA mixing down a week back and did his yearly gig at Largo with Jon Brion & co, where he debuted half the album. Theres a half complete recording floating around on the web, it's pretty hard to make out what the end product will actually sound like since its practically just him on acoustic - but to me the melodies/chord structures sound way more One Nilish than anything the Crowdies did though.

I think I got through it thrice. It's nice enough - probably one of his weaker outings though... after Feeding The Gods (his previous one) I was hoping for somthing equally as good. But anyway it results in a few gigs - so thats fine with me.

And yes, the cover isn't exactly my favourite.

Thanks for the info! I'll be looking forward to this album, and a tour by Nick and Neil would be amaaazing.

What is Nick doing these days anyway? Any commitments that would stop him from being able to tour with Neil?

And I'm yet to hear One Nil. I'm hoping to score some stuff at Boxing Day sales ...

It's the first solo Tim release that I've heard, and after hearing that his solo stuff can be really patchy, I found it quite consistent and pleasant enough background music, but put it this way: I won't be replacing my downloaded copy with a bought one in a hurry. I can't say I want that cover on my shelf either.

Oh, by the way, I don't suppose you have an MP3 of The Swingers' Counting The Beat that you could send my way? I can't find one online and I'd like a copy for old times' sake.

And I've been listening to a fair bit of Dave Dobbyn lately. It's so sad that although NZ's produced so much great musical talent, it usually goes ignored by everyone else.

I got given this for Christmas. Yet to watch it though, will do so on my day off on Thursday. And for whoever wanted to pick it up in Australia cheaply, go to JB Hi-Fi, they had it for $19.

I've been a Crowdies fan forever, so I rushed out and got the DVD and CD on the day they came out. Come to think of it, I tried several different shops before I finally tracked down a copy and then raced off to queue up for U2!! Seriously.

I was just so glad to have the entire show (almost) on DVD after so many years of wearing out the VHS version. Not to mention the hilarious moments they had to cut out in the original. Go Hessie!

The commentary is great as is the live CD which can finally replace my simulcast cassette from 1996. It's also great to hear that the three demo's featured may also appear on a CH box set, rumoured to be coming out sometime this year! All that, plus a new album from Neil/Nick and a possible tour in 2007?


Ooooh! Before I forget, I also got Tim's new album and was pleasantly surprised. Now I'm not usually much of a Tim fan but this album convinced me to go and see him live. And yeah, there's something... almost creepy about that cover...what was he thinking?

I was just thinking about that awesome version of 'Sister Madly' on the way home.

Ahhh yes...it really is. The fluffed lines, the laughter, those harmonies......PERFECT!



I'd always wondered where "in our little brown constellation" had originated from in Italian Plastic.

Now we know it was from the middle part of Sister Madly where Paul makes a reference to 'ice-cream' , followed by 'chocolate'!
