2nd generation pop rockers that aren’t too bad. a young liam (son of neil) finn started playing music in his pre-teen years, and it looks like he’s developed quite an ear for good melody. joined by matt eccles (son of australian hero brent eccles of the angels), chris garland and joe bramley, they continue to improve and improve, both live and on record.
very popular across new zealand and now spreading into australia, betchadupa have built up a strong catelogue of singles and albums, having a heavy video presence, whilst still retaining some level of independent credibility – even splitting from flying nun around the time of their amalgamation into the international festival mushroom group.
