Don’t Ask Why – video
For his 2001 album One Nil, Neil wrote numerous songs with Wendy Melvoin, best known as one half of Wendy & Lisa and for her guitar playing in Prince’s band The Revolution. We’ve compiled a video for their song “Don’t Ask Why” using live and rehearsal footage shot in 2000 at the old Roundhead studio, Auckland’s Tabac bar and The Domain in Sydney.
In the band with Neil and Wendy are Lisa Coleman on keyboards and Midnight Oil’s Jim Moginie on guitar. The Roundhead and Sydney sequences feature 17 year old Liam Finn on drums. At Tabac, it’s JJ Johnson. On the original recording, it’s Wendy!
