APTER, JEFF
Together Alone : The Story of the Finn Brothers
Australia, William Heinemann. 2010, First Edition. (ISBN: 1741668166) Soft Cover, 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 'Success for the brothers was a long time coming: it took several turbulent years in Split Enz - an art-pop band Neil would join in 1977, despite Tim's reservations - before they produced a genuine hit and connected with the mainstream. And it was achieved by one of Neil's songs, 'I Got You', which wasn't the sweetest pill brother Tim had ever tasted. After all, Split Enz was his band, his odyssey, his obsession. When the Enz came undone, their paths split. Neil led world-beaters Crowded House, while Tim immersed himself in a series solo projects. Based on interviews, critical analysis, extensive research and more than 30 years of Finns watching and listening, a story of breakthroughs, breakdowns, sibling rivalry and respect - and some of the best pop songs this side of Lennon and McCartney.' CONDITION 340 pages with photo plate section and discography. Crisp copy with light creasing at cnrs of front cover o/w unworn. #New Zealand Biography#. Very Good/N/A.
