Performer Notes
  • Finn Brothers: Neil Finn, Tim Finn (vocals, various instruments).
  • Additional personnel: Dave Dobbyn (bass).
  • Recorded at York St. Studios, Auckland, New Zealand in November 1994 and March 1995.
  • Before they birthed Crowded House and Split Enz, Neil and Tim Finn did some nice stuff of their own, this 11 cut gem being the most notable. Features "Only Talking Sense," "Mood Swinging Man," and "Angels Heap."
  • Audio Mixer: Tchad Blake.
  • Recording information: York St Studios, Auckland (11/1994/03/1995).
  • Photographers: Darryl Ward; Kerry Brown .
  • This quirky album from the two brothers who were once part of the '70s-'80s band Split Enz, and who went on to become part of Crowded House, is full of strange noises, acoustic guitars and indigenous-sounding instruments. Lyrics touch on nightmares, angels, devils, shopping, and flying. FINN BROTHERS was released after Crowded House's final studio album, TOGETHER ALONE. It plays like it is: an album by two brothers who just decided to have some fun in the studio and write some interesting songs.
  • The brothers play all instruments--which include drums, electric and acoustic guitar, mandolin and other random outbursts--except for one song, where a bass player pitches in. Producer Tchad Blake helps lend an eerie, dark, yet spacious quality to the tunes which include "Only Talking Sense," "Last Day of June" (the only song penned by Neil alone), and the silly "Mood Swinging Man," sung by Tim Finn. Neil's voice is richer and deeper while Tim's is thinner and higher, which makes for harmonies as perfect as Lennon and McCartney's. Though the casual listener might not appreciate the eccentricities brought into play here, FINN BROTHERS will intrigue longtime Crowded House fans.

Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (6/21/96, p.66) - "So it's no Crowded House album. We shan't be having more of those, though, so best to accept just how casually terrific this initially underwhelming unsplitting of ex-Enzers Tim and Neil actually is..." - Rating: B+

"Finn" isn't quite right. Over the course of the their two careers Tim and Neil have written some wonderful songs. There are some good songs on this album, but some of them seem only half finished. The low key nature of the tracks also adds to this feeling. Not bad, but for the best of the Finn Brothers, try the absolutely superb "Everyone is Here".
