Crowded House

It’s 2021 and there’s plenty to be hopeful about, but for now, dreamers are waiting. Given that I have a bit more time than usual to explore threads, and in the interests of keeping my brain active and you entertained, I have started a special weekly show on Fangradio, Thursdays at 11am, NZ time.

Each week we will dive into a different Crowded House album and render intimate acoustic versions, a comprehensive selection of the best tracks in my opinion. There will be discussion about the making of and I shall invite friends and colleagues like Nick Seymour and Mitchell Froom to take part with reminiscence and anecdotes.

Some of the songs I am relearning seem fresh and more attractive in their new guise. Hope you will join me as I gallivant though the repertoire.
