BummerÖI went through a huge World Party phase around 91-93. Then I was really let down by the follow up to Goodbye Jumbo. Saw him at 930ÖI donít believe live performance was his strengthÖ..more like in the studio.  I think he had a stroke more than 20 years ago which affected him quite a bit.

"Goodbye Jumbo" an absolutely great record. Almost every song on that is amazing.

Apparently itís been a while since anyone listened to World Party, judging from Spotify plays - The big hit Way Down Now has only 3M and Put the Message in the Box only 6M. But damn, those songs hold up and are incredible power pop songs perfectly executed. Exhilarating and melancholy - the definitive 90ís formula delivered at the start of the decade.

Found this Mojo interview from 2021 which helps answer the question Ďwhat happened to Karl Wallinger?í

how it Ren taking it?

google is your friend
actually knew it was about a tree, but felt comedy was more appropriate here

small ornamental trees are low in priority IMO
 there are 100+ year old trees being cutdown as fast as we can and those we should be more concerned about
