    I enjoy the early Enz before they got influenced by the british new wave. The early stuff I perceive as more personal as from the new wave stuff was more mainstream back then.

    From what I recall Noel is the percussionist, got dragged into drums didn’t enjoy it and went back to the percussion, including playing some awesome spoons and designing the clothes to this very day when ever they get together

    I enjoy both Split Enz and Crowded House. But from what I’ve seen, the Enz have better videos.

    My parents have connections to these guys kind of. They used to be friends with Eddie Rayner, and my dad told me Noel Crombie’s his neighbour.

    in nz there was no other band that was like split enz.. they were unique there and are probably nz’s most loved band and a nz icon. neil finn of course went on to form crowded house and enjoyed more success internationally

    1977… was it that Glam Rock lasted longer in the Southern Hemisphere than it did in the North, or is this an art rock kind of look. In other words, were there other bands in NZ who looked like Split Enz? Or were they unique down there?

    As a resident of the times (and regular watcher of Countdown) I remember thinking that the bands who were Kiwi had more quirky/original videos than the Oz bands. I always thought it was because they had better weed across the water.

  15. He was their clothing designer, he only played spoons live and became part of the ‘joke’.

    anyone know what year this was ?

  17. LokiClock says:

    Tambourine, it looks like.

  18. bittenof says:

    that may be so but i am sure he is doing his best in what might for him be a difficult situation!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Stefan1368 says:

    What intrument does that guy play that is wearing the yellow suite and black tie? Cause it dosnt look like he’s doing much.

  20. dantweedy says:

    I think the video is more bizarre than the song. Fortunately, they tamed their image to their muisc, eventually.

  21. grimdreamer says:

    One of my favourite songs by them. This and “Poor Boy”.
