(Split Enz 1974 - Iggy Pop proclaimed them the future of Rock n' Roll - if only it were so)

Another dose of Split Enz tonight (I ran another post some months back). This time from a series of demo sessions just prior to their signing with Mushroom Records and the recording of the first album Mental Notes. Sadly, this lineup wouldn't last too much past 1977 after the band completed their first U.S. tour (a truly memorable one, as someone who was there can attest). But they continued on, honing and perfecting their sound and evolving into one of the more popular bands from "down under" during the 70s and 80s.

This track, Malmsbury Villa, never made it to an album and stayed only as a demo. Too bad. But even the demo is pretty sensational.

Perfect Monday night music.
