Today’s post is a request. Sort of.
A recent Musical coincidence featured three Australian bands all playing pretty much the same riff. One of those bands was the long-forgotten Finch. (Not to be confused with Welsh heavy metal band Budgie, or American soft rock band the Eagles, or English moody rock band Doves.) The Finch song was called “Hey Spunky”. (And still is, I dare say.)
When that Musical coincidence was posted, commenter Paul (Hi, Paul!) offered this about one of Finch’s other songs:
I’d rate Finch’s “Short Changed Again” as one of the greatest Australian rock recordings. An ignored classic.
I’m going to interpret that as a request. Thanks, Paul.
Finch – “Short Changed Again” (1976)
As a bonus, here’s a live version that was recorded in December 1976 but released a year later:
