Split Enz - Six Months In A Leaky Boat


On this date in 1982, Split Enz released their twenty-first single, "Six Months In A Leaky Boat". It was backed by "Make Sense Of It". Both tracks appeared on their seventh album, Time And Tide. The A side was banned by the BBC as they thought it referenced the controversial Falklands War (the band denied this). The single, however, was much more successful closer to home. The single reached the #2 spot on the Australian singles chart. The Auckland, New Zealand new wave/power pop band called it quits in 1985.
