The next weekend I'm seeing Shihad (very, very good back catalogue but there new album sucks amazingly) at some rinky-dink little club a lot closer to home. Then I not a great deal until U2 or Cy decide to pay us a visit. Whoever does first is cooler. I will probably die without seeing U2 I suspect.
That attitude ends now! U2 better make it down to Australia/New Zealand.

Wow. You'll be seeing them three days in a row? (I'm just drooling at the thought of seeing my favorite musicians three days in a row as I've yet to hear anything the Finn brothers have ever recorded )

Shihad, huh? My friend in New Zealand included them on one of the two New Zealand music compilations she sent me 2 years ago (which I still haven't listened to ). Are you familiar with The Feelers? I keep meaning to check them out; they're her favorite band after U2.

hi tim-tam

yes i don't like it at all

we were going to do some more unpacking tomorrow, go to the movies, mayhaps the mall...looks like that's not going to happen.

there's not that much left in the apartment (we seriously just ran out of room in the car) so i'm hoping this time we really won't be over there but for like...i dunno, an hour? i mean seriously how long does it take to pack up a few things that are on the kitchen counter and mop a floor?

Sorry for the negative attidude it must be the Cy talking. They'll play Australia I believe - although I'm really doubting my ability to get tickets at a reasonable price for multiple dates.

The Finn Brothers are Tim & Neil Finn. They both played in Split Enz (Electica for the first 2 albums, Nu-Wave Pop thereafter)1972-84 14 albums), Neil was in Crowded House 1986-96 (Rock & Lyrical Brilliance) (5 albums). They both have solo careers Neil's (3 albums), Tim's somewhere around 7 or 8. You know Crowded House, they make you vomit.

I'd be interested to see what he/she sent you of theres. There is a song of theres called Home Again which is just . Anything off General Electric or Pacifier is brilliant too. They are an epic live act.

The Feelers are good too, but they are no Shihad. I must share a bit of vision of a few of these - you may be more likely to watch a clip or two of them rather than listen to a whole album.

They actually have a broader NZ musical taste than I. I've never really delved into Stellar*'s catalogue for example. Although I've been reccomended them around 100 times.

The ones I would reccomend are

The Split Enz Run..
Betchadupa (Neil Finn's son's band )
Shihad/Pacifier (They are the same band)
The Swingers - Counting The Beat is amongst my 5 favourite songs of all time - it's fucking brilliant.

Otherwise . OMC was very good for 1996 - but watching the film clip the other day How Bizzare is very uh... bizzare - but catchy.

You will like Shihad/Pacifier the most I thinks

that's not being nosey. being nosey would be asking me something like what colour knickers am i wearing.

anyway, the countdown is for when i get to see duran duran in nashville. i also get to see them the very next day right here in my own town*! the first time EVER they've played here. seriously, ever! not even in the 80s or 90s did they ever come here, i checked.


* i would not consider where i live to be my hometown, just my town, or where i live. i wasn't born or raised here, i just learned to become bitchy and bitter here

Oh, so Stellar is supposed to have the asterisk at the end of their name! I kept looking for a side note at the bottom of this tracklisting page I'm looking at.
