Formed in Melbourne in 1985, following the disbanding of new wave geniuses Split Enz, Crowded House quickly won a spot in our hearts with their 1986 debut album. We only grew fonder of the band as they continued to pump out perfect, intelligent pop songs across the ensuing decade.
Those songs remain iconic, anthemic and completely worthy of every cliché you can throw at them after all these years. The Crowdies are one of those special bands that just about everyone loves, no matter who you are or where you’re from.
Join Jacinta Parsons for a very special episode of The J Files on Double J from 8pm AEDT, Thursday 24 November.
