We return from hiatus as we turn 21 episodes old - a real man at last. What better way to mark the occasion than with the man behind many people’s favorite albums - Neil Finn, late of the Pajama Club, 7 Worlds Collide, The Mullanes, After Hours, Crowded House and Split Enz.
The first Kiwi on the podcast (and the first artist to go from subject of an episode to guest) waxes lyrical of two jam-packed episodes on four of the most influential albums in his record collection.
In part one, Neil and host Jeremy Dylan delve into The Beatles’ “Beatles for Sale” and Neil Young’s “After the Goldrush” and along the way talk about their shared memories of a bizarre Crowded House gig in Hyde Park, covering the Beatles with Paul Kelly, the Finn family record collection circa 1964, Neil’s planned first name-based supergroup, singing in falsetto and why he’s a self-described “perverse bastard”.
Come back next week to hear Neil and Jeremy talk Bowie and Radiohead, as they fail to solve rock’s most enduring mystery.
