Check out Bold As Brass by Split Enz

I first heard this record in Houston. It was around 1980. They would soon have  a few hits, break up, Neil forming Crowded House, and Tim (the eccentric, far more interesting brother) had varied successes. These early records haven’t been heard by Americans. I think, if you like the Beatles, ELO, Supertramp, you will be pleasantly surprised by the genius of their first two records. Neil took them to the charts. Tim took them to different planets. Both are amazing, underrated songwriters.
Listen to this and the first one. It’s a true musical journey through very strange avenues of pop inventiveness. I promise.
