A message from Neil before his tour:

From frenz.com...

' Dear All, at last some shows with you Americans and Canadians- sorry I'm not getting down south or much in the middle. It's economics I'm afraid (one bus, no truck, not even room for Mr Green this time!). Glad to hear lots of you are travelling to make your presence felt. I can feel it already...and it is good. Love Neil'

He's so nice to us!

There's a reason I continue to assert that Kiwis are the super-race.

When I was a little girl, and first started listening to Crowded House, I ended up doing a TON of research on New Zealand. I had decided at that time that I wanted to become the ambassador to New Zealand because that was... well the only job I knew of that could get me working there. Heh. I was a teensy bit obsessed. I currently own every Split Enz album, every CH album and most of the singles, all of Tim's solo albums and most of Neil's... I guess I still am a teensy bit obsessed. I will be seeing Neil at the 9:30 club, and came VERY near to buying tickets for the Philly show, but decided to try to be mellow about it.

I have heard of the Mutton Birds, but haven't yet run out and bought any of their stuff; perhaps I should!!

Re: There's a Fraction too much Friction
I would love to come visit - of course, at this point, it would have to be sometime in august or after, as my weekends are full up for july! not to mention - my schedule gets all complicated because sometimes i work weekends.

And on an australian-band note, I went looking for Hunters and Collectors and Icehouse cds on amazon the other day... they're all expensive imports! what's up with that!!

Re: There's a Fraction too much Friction
thanks for the recommendation!!! i will check it out. i kind of looked for some mutton birds today, but didn't find any. nor icehouse nor hunters and collectors. have you heard fo straghtjacket fits? i think they are from NZ as well but i haven't heard their stuff.

as far as icehouse being just iva davies and some other dudes, i had finally learned about that this week. thanks to VH-1 classics, i am back into all kinds of one hit wonders i loved as a kid. some are easier to track down than others...
