The Finns started their musical collaborating at the University of Auckland in the mid-1970s. The first full time act they assembled was their prog rock/New Wave outfit, Split Enz. Guess where the spelling of “Enz” comes from?

This act made it big in Canada, just like Crowded House.  They were New Zealand’s contribution to 1980s music, and you will still hear “I Got You” at classy 1980s parties…you know, the one’s deejayed by MuchMoreMusic on Saturday nights?  Yes, it’s on the television!

For kicks, here’s “Six Months in a Leaky Boat” about the perils of seafaring immigration.  I think.
