Crowded House

Post by TracyJosh » 03 Jun 2017, 02:34

Anyone else on here a big Crowded House fan? I think they are genuinely one of the most underrated bands ever. A band that maybe suffered from having their hits only being one particular style of a diverse musical pallet across an expansive, overlooked discography.

Have always thought there were huge similarities musicially to Parkflife and TGE era Blur too. Maybe not so much lyrically and vocally but songs like 'In my command', 'Kill eye, 'Mean to me' and 'Locked Out' have a similar musical aesthetic as Blur songs like 'Stereotypes', 'Tracy Jacks' and 'Badhead'. I suppose it's maybe just down to the fact both bands are very influenced by the more psychedelic leanings of The Beatles..

I've always been an immense fan of theirs and also of Neil Finn..... "Better Be Home Soon" ranks among my top 50 all-time tracks from the 80s!
