Another window is at the Crowded House webcast. The band, reformed and now including ex-Beck drummer Matt Sherrod, is sounding great. There are more details at the fan site frenz. Yes, there will be a new album.
I love Crowded House. I only saw them once, on the Woodface tour, with my hero (and theirs) Richard Thompson opening, and joining them to play lead guitar on “Sister Madly.” I also saw Neil Finn, with band including his son, once.
Hey now, hey now, they’re playing “Don’t Dream It’s Over,” one of my very favorite songs… even when Neil forgets the words.
