I assume we can categorize this group as a "friend" of the guys, especially given Jemaine and Tim Finn's collaborative efforts on the film and song "Predicament."

They've just released a new album called "Intriguer" (it has a creepy bear on the cover #shy#) which i think is excellent!


Also, I just wanted to say how AMAZING these guys are live. I saw them at the Nokia Theater here in L.A. last night, and they performed for about 3 hours straight, without seeming to lose any energy.

There was a fantastic bit where Neil was experiencing some technical difficulties, and their poor roadie John spent a good amount of time trying to fix things - in the meantime, Neil turned on his synthesizer and created an impromptu song about waiting around for things to work on stage. I am soooo impressed by him as an entertainer - he really had the audience in his thrall for the entirety of the performance.

I'll post some of my (albeit crappy) pictures here, as well as some youtube vids of the concert.


Please feel free to post news and/or encounters with Crowded House and their music here! :D
