Don't dream it's over

Crowded House are one of Australasia's most successful acts. However, when they came to record their third album in 1990, the group was on the verge of splitting apart. In desperation, singer and songwriter Neil Finn fell back on his brother Tim to help. Tim Finn had led the group Split Enz from New Zealand to the top of the Australian charts and invited Neil to join the group, only to be eclipsed by him. The dynamic between the brothers had always been volatile. With that in mind, the brothers in two weeks composed a number of classic songs, and the result was Woodface. The album was considered a masterpiece but tensions in the group flared up to the point of mild violence and in the middle of a world tour, Tim was ousted from the band. Now that the dust has settled Neil and Tim Finn discuss the struggles and creative process of the writing and recording of such Crowded House hits as "Weather With You", "Fall at Your Feet", "Chocolate Cake" and "Four Seasons in one Day" while Nick Seymour, Jimmy Barnes, Rob Hirst (Midnight Oil), Reg Mombasa and Pete O'Doherty (Mental as Anything) join us in the exploration of this unforgettable album. It also features Neil Finn revisiting the master tapes, uncovering secrets that have lain hidden for a decade or more, and performing a number of Woodface songs exclusively for this documentary.
