Crowded House: Crowded House OBE

Phil Sutcliffe, Q, August 1993

WHAT A QUEER old month it's been for past and present members of Crowded House. In June they visited the UK to sequence their album and, surreally, it was announced that Neil and his brother Tim had been awarded OBEs in the Birthday Honours for services to music. They celebrated the event when Neil joined Tim on stage for a brief acoustic set at The Borderline to promote the elder's new solo LP.
