NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month - Day 22

During 1982, the band took a bit of a break while Tim Finn recorded a solo album. This didn't stop the new releases though. Next Exit was a later recording of a song first recorded in 1978 (and first released on the More Hits and Myths various artists compilation a year or so before the re-recording was released). As the style of the song no longer fit with where the band had gone, musically, it didn't make much of an impression on the public, and the video is yet another one that was missing off the DVD, although it was available on their earlier VHS video compilation.
