This week on Talking 80s Music, we look to a little island called New Zealand and focus on the band called Split Enz. Evolving from progressive rock to punk to pop, the band would have several hits before finding greater success separately. Expect to hear a retrospective mix, their rare non-album single "No Exit," "I Wouldn't Dream Of It" and a live version of their classic "Message To My Girl." Sure, we could have made a 2 hour episode out of this but also wanted to leave a little something for a future episode about their even more successful spin-off band.
Word from in the chat room was that the audio sounded better than ever. Do we believe them... yes, because we have to. Think we chose a good mix of fast, slow, well-know and lesser-known tracks for this one to showcase more of their range. Yes, Martin did mention the CES that he attended this week. His dream is to host the show live at one of those locations someday... Tommy Lee was running around there this year.
