This was filmed mostly in Wellington over the Christmas period by London-based New Zealand director Rueben Sutherland.The clip features the new gravity-defying Electric Petrol Car being put through its paces in an instructional video (produced by a mysterious crowd called the Petrol Crime Bureau). This clip should be of some concern to 4×4 drivers out there who snarl up the motorways of the world…

Damn the River
Directed by Luke Savage

The video was filmed in Auckland in April and features a time lapse of an old, cloud-gazing man who lies back and lets the world pass him by, amongst the chaos of man-made urban motorways and constructions sites.

HORSEPOWER (2003)

This Charming Van
Directed by Luke Savage

The band’s first music video.

Let Me Die A Woman
Directed by Richard Bell
Winner of the ‘Knack Award’ at the 2003 NZ Kodak Music Clip Awards

This is one of earliest videos and still one of our favourites.

Directed on the second smallest budget we have ever had (the smallest was for This Charming Van) I think Richard really pulled it out of the bag for us on this one. We made two great vids with Mr Bell, the other was Going Fishing, which once edited with scenes from Eagle Vs Shark and used to promote the film in the states has had a great deal of views on the old boob tube. Unfortunately I can’t find the original online. We were a bit useless with the online stuff back in old 2004 – It’s hard to imagine not loading a video straight to YT now, but I guess things have changed somewhat!
