Matthew Joseph I accept your challenge and will connect Crowded House to KISS in six steps or less.

Crowded House are a wonderful Australian band fronted by a brilliant Kiwi songwriter named Neil Finn. How am I going to connect them to KISS in six steps or less? Like this:

1. “Locked Out” by Crowded House is on the Reality Bites soundtrack alongside a song called “Going Going Gone” by Seattle power poppers The Posies.


2. The Posies’ 1993 album Frosting on the Beater was produced by Don Fleming.


3. Don Fleming was a member of indie rock supergroup Dim Stars with punk rock pioneer Richard Hell.


4. The drummer in Richard Hell’s seminal punk rock band the Voidoids was a guy named Marc Bell (far left).


5. Marc Bell had previously been a member of early seventies NYC heavy rock band Dust with Richie Wise (so there’s one link) and he would eventually replace late drummer Tommy Ramone and become Marky Ramone in the Ramones.


6. KISS recorded a version of the Ramones song “Do You Remember Rock n’ Roll Radio” for the 2003 tribute album We’re a Happy Family.


And there you have it.
