Wow, great photos Lot of SPLIT ENZ fans out there !

I saw them play twice in San Francisco(they were wearing those suits for one of the shows)

SF's Kennel Club was a "way station" for all the touring New Zealand bands

I saw the Chills, The Bats, The Verlaines, Tall Dwarfs, and Straight Jacket Fits

I am flabbergasted that nobody is commenting on this amazing clip.

To me, this performance is, in its weird jolly Western way being totally incongruous in its aboriginal surroundings, a beautiful allegory, the personification of the mad culture clash that is.... TIKI STYLE!

I could watch this over and over again.

Must agree with you Sven, this is epic! What an amazing treasure.

"Epi Shalfoon, born in Opotiki in 1904 of a Maori mother and a Syrian father, became the most popular figure in the history of dance music in Auckland."
