Noel Crombie, My Voice Keeps Changing On Me [Single] (1983)
I wonder if maybe Noel Crombie is the most underrated/under-valued member of Split Enz. By virtue of his role, or various roles, he helped them achieve such weirdness and within that or around that the stagecraft. You could argue that by costuming the band he was important enough but that might further undervalue his musical contributions. In his solo outings (rare) he got to really explore his role as a kinetic sculptor and sound artist. But he also enjoys just lampooning somewhat. As you see here. Well it’s one of each really – this single a joyous novelty tune. But its b-side is the work of a clever-clogs artist. That’s my take on it anyway. Noel is one of my heroes. I love his work.
