Jam this record
NZ On Screen have rediscovered this clip for NZ's first house record... Simon Grigg, who had a hand in it, has no recollection of this video existing... wonder who made it?
"NZ's first house record was a one-off studio project for Simon Grigg, Alan Jansson, Dave Bulog and James Pinker. With a nod to UK act MARRS' indie/electro hit 'Pump up the Volume' — and a sample from Indeep's 'Last Night a DJ Saved My Life' — it briefly featured in the UK club charts. The independently made music video borrows the record's original graphics (by novelist Chad Taylor) and marries them to a mash-up of 1960s black and white, music related archive footage (including C'mon) with the occasional novelty act and politician added for good measure." And there's Rob Muldoon. Woo.
