Splendour People's Choir

Introducing the Splendour People's Choir!

31 December 1900

If you were at Splendour this year, you might have spotted a very last-minute addition to the line up. Straight after You Am I’s blistering set, the boys from Powderfinger took to the stage to record the Super Top crowd singing the chorus to a song from their new album, which they were recording right across the road at 301 Studios.
 
That sing-a-long has ended up on the track “Think It Over”, from Powderfinger’s new album “Golden Rule”, and the Supertop crowd have become known as the Splendour People’s Choir.


If you were there, you can add your name to the Splendour People's Choir below! Just leave your full name as a comment to this article.

由于我完全不同观<,一>专业词汇就<的似懂非懂的。所以想请教一<<面这句话的正确的翻译:”Mass loss from cool giants and sutgpeianrs is evidenced by P Cygni profiles in optical spectra, by the 10 μm silicate feature in IR spectra, and by maser line emission from OH and other molecules in radio-frequency spectra.“

I'm excited to say that this was my second time in a Powderfinger recording,at Splendour for this moment, and also at Festival Hall way back when double allergic came out (was it 97 or 98?) and the film clip for DAF was recorded. I love that you guys use your fans and local crowds to recordings!

I love Powderfinger. They're just so innovative in their musical ideas. They're INCREDIIBLY talented musicians. And their song writing is unmatched by anyone, including The Beatles. Seriously, best band to have ever set foot on this planet.


And obviously, NONE of that was sarcastic.

Why be my face the sum of antelope and moose on mondays? Why does my face = my face + x^2? If My face = My face + x^2 then x = 0. duh.
