As "The Front Lawn", Harry Sinclair and Don McGlashan released two albums and made three short films between 1985 and 1990. Many of their songs such as "Andy", "When You Come Back Home" and "How You Doing?" have become classics.
Since then they've both found individual success; Sinclair as an actor and director of films including The Price of Milk and Topless Women Talk About Their Lives, and McGlashan as a solo musician, composer, and founder of The Mutton Birds.
They're now back working together on a kiwi stop motion children's show Kiri and Lou. Set in prehistoric New Zealand the show features work by animator Ant Elworthy (Isle of Dogs, Coraline, and The Corpse Bride) and the voices of Olivia Tennet, Jemaine Clement, Rima Te Wiata and Jaquie Brown. The series has just been sold to the BBC for screening on its children's network CBeebies.
