  1. Extremely interesting post thank you for sharing I have added your site to my bookmarks and will be back :) By the way this is off subject but I really like your sites layout.

  2. Tom says:

    Hallo Matt,
    Do you know how many singles were made from:
    - underneath the colours? I don't find the single;
    - simple simon  – PB 8596?
    Greets,
    Tom

  3. Matt says:

    Hi Tom,

    At the moment only have MH's solo discography.  Will be adding a look at MH's INXS work in the future.  The 2 singles you mentioned are very rare!  I do own both of them myself. 

    Underneath The Colours was only released as a 7" single in New Zealand when INXS toured there supporting Cold Chisel in early 1982. 

    Simple Simon 7" you mentioned is the French 7" which came with a picture sleeve, the Australian 7" didn't.  Again very rare, your best bet is just to keep checking eBay and hope they come up.

  4. Chelsea says:

    appreciated this post!

  5. Tom says:

    Hallo Matt,
    Are there still songs (unreleased) of Michael Hutchence that can be published?
    Greets,
    Tom
     

  6. Tom says:

    Hello Matt,
    By the way thank you for your quick  answer on my first question on your website.
    Greets Tom
     

  7. Matt says:

    Hey Tom – yes there is quite a few unreleased MH songs we have especially from his solo album that no one has heard before. 

  8. Tom says:

    Hello Matt,
    Interesting!
    I've read that Michale Hutchence also worked with Tim Simenon from Bomb the Bass. They recorded over a dozen songs. Is this true? What will happen with these songs? Are these songs only demos?
    Greets,
    Tom

  9. Matt says:

    Hey Tom – yes MH worked on about 12 songs with Tim Simenon.  There is a number of other unreleased songs he also did with Danny Saber.  There is enough unreleased songs for another Michael Hutchence solo album.

  10. Tom says:

    Matt,
    Thank you for the answer!
    Greets,
    Tom

    I leave a reply when I enjoy reading an article on a website or if I have got something of value to bring towards discussion. And on this particular article I was seriously moved enough to leave a remark ;) I do have some questions for you if it’s allright?. Could it be simply me or do some of these comments come across as coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you list every one of your community pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile? Thanks!
