Story

Split Enz was one of the most successful acts New Zealand ever produced. Even so, I Got You was their only moderate hit in the US which peaked at #53 on the Billboard charts in 1981. Perhaps their music style was a bit too eclectic for American radio, but the band also saw a lot of personnel changes throughout their 12 year career, which ended in 1984, and some members did go onto bigger notoriety, particularly the Finn brothers (Neil and Tim). Crowded House's brooding ballad Don't Dream It's Over would reach #2 in the US and earn them a Best New Artist award at the MTV Music Video Awards in 1987. I guess that's what happens when you try to catch a deluge in a paper cup...
