Post-breakup, Neil launched a successful but low-key solo career, formed the charity Seven Worlds Collide, where he collaborated with members of {{Radiohead}}, Music/TheSmiths, Music/MidnightOil, and Music/PearlJam for a series of concerts and CD releases, as well as releasing a second album of songs with his brother Tim. Paul hosted a talk-show on Australian television and had a recurring role on TheWiggles as Paul the Cook. Nick moved to Ireland, and notably, produced the debut album of Bell X1. Mark, meanwhile, toured with several other artists, including Music/RingoStarr. A collection of rarities, ''Afterglow'', was released in 1999, and the final show at the Sydney Opera House was eventually released as the album and DVD ''Farewell To The World'' in celebration of the show's 10th anniversary in 2006.
