The Kitchen Sink II
(Rarities)

B-sides, demos and rarities. This audio stream collection is exclusive to neilfinn.com.

Time On Earth (demo)
Neil Finn
Performed by Neil Finn.
"This is a lovely recording I had forgotten about, done in my basement around 2001 with Sebastian Steinberg, Lisa Germano, Shon Sullivan and Scott McPherson. My new music is very different to this but that’s how it should be and no doubt something obscure from the current sessions will turn up in 10 years time on this website and sound fresh again."
– Neil Finn, 2013.

Locked Out (Zen mix)
Neil Finn
Dub mix made during the Together Alone sessions, 1992-3, at Kare Kare, New Zealand. After its online debut here on The Kitchen Sink II in 2014, it was released on the Together Alone Deluxe Edition CD set in 2016.
The self-imposed rule of a Zen mix was to have only four channels from the multi-track tape open on the desk at any time.
"There was a late night mix of 'Locked Out.' A dubby kind of thing. We'd end most nights with them kind of hauling things around and adding big delays. That was fun."
- Neil Finn, 2016.
