Progrography

Split Enz
Pity the island its poor feng shui, tucked behind Australia in some dusty corner of the globe. No one was looking to New Zealand for the second coming of The Beatles, so when Split Enz came onto the scene most missed it. They were handily the equal of Squeeze, The Undertones and the second wave of pop stars who were raised on Eleanor Rigby and Penny Lane. Of course don't take my word for it. Buy True Colours. Buy Time and Tide. Buy Waiata. Make up your own mind. Then decide if you want to dig deeper into the homespun sound of earlier efforts or the underinspired music of later albums. Or fork off into the solo music of Crowded House and Tim Finn. But to not know the pleasure of Split Enz... that's just bad karma, mate.
