Live news from alt-pop oddball Liam Finn, who is back over in the UK come September time, for 3 shows at London’s Bloomsbury Theatre with his Dad (as one does), who just happens to be Crowded House frontman and NZ Music elder statesman Neil Finn. Be great if there’s any mentions you might consider?
The Bloomsbury dates follow Liam’s suitably chaotic ‘Murmuration’ residency at the Lexington last Autumn, which saw him joined by collaborators including Connan Mockasin & Kirin J Callinan to play tracks from Liam’s new LP The Nihilist (out now on YepRoc Records).

Liam & Neil are trailing the ‘Wrestle With Dad’ tour (which takes its name from The Nihilist’s closing track) with this new video, in which father & son interpret the title in flamboyantly literal fashion…..
