Remembering Jim Niven

The Real Canadian Music Blog

Jim Niven was an Australian piano/organ player who was in 2 notable bands of the 1970’s Australian music scene.  He was in “The Captain Matchbox Whoopee Band” followed by a stint with “The Sports“.  He passed after a short battle with cancer on April 9.  In memory, I have placed 2 videos.  The first is from his time with the Sports, the second is with Captain Matchbox, although I can’t confirm he is in this one.  It is still an interesting song.
