Pin Group

Spotted over at the excellent Mysterex blog. The Pin Group rehearsing, footage shot by Ronnie Van Hout in 1981. Playing their early Flying Nun single Coat/Ambivalence. Great stuff.

Ronnie Van Hout (via Youtube): "1981 film of The Pin Group. Shows band running through Ambivalence and Coat in practice room and gives a reasonably good idea of their dynamic and entertaining stage show. The first two and a half minutes feature verse by a Christchurch poet called Desmond Brice, who penned some of the Pin Group's lyrics including the above. Film closes with some flip remarks about Pin Group from local painter Marty Whitworth. Gives you some sense of how droll it was to live in this city in the early 1980s."
