Car headlights creep across the sea (The Mutton Birds) #500

The Mutton Birds She's Been Talking/ He Turned Around/ Inbetween Man (EMI, 1997)

Don McGlashan is the main man of The Mutton Birds. 

A talented musician - he's been in a few seminal N.Z. bands - Blam Blam Blam and Front Lawn. I especially liked the humour of Front Lawn - a kind of precursor to Flight Of The Conchords.

He's a nice guy too. He and I were once doing the same English papers at Auckland University back in the late 1970's, early 1980's.

She's Been Talking is a typical catchy Mutton Birds song and Don's distinctive tones are a lovely feature.

Hidden Gem: He Turned Around is absent from the parent album Envy Of Angels.
