Schnell Fenster, Ok Alright A Huh Oh Yeah [Single] (1990)
I loved Schnell Fenster. I love Schnell Fenster still. But discovering them, finding out all about this band – not just Phil Judd but other ex-Split Enz members too – it was just a whole new world, my mind was blown. I was about 10 or 11 when the first album came out, I must have heard it just shortly after. And then the second record. Here’s a 12” single taking from it – the title track – appearing in extended and album versions and a great b-side, from the original album. A friend chucked this my way just recently, knowing I’m a fan. It’d be worth it for the cover image alone. But of course it’s Phil Judd. So it’s worth it for the music too. I don’t think he looks too fondly on the Schnell material, or the era anyway; it wasn’t the greatest time for him personally. But the music on the two albums by this band is some of my all-time favourite music by anyone ever.
