Tally Ho

by The Clean.

The music video for the Flying Nun classic was the directing debut of label-mate Chris Knox.

Knox shot the band walking up the street, with a borrowed 16mm camera set at a slow frame rate.

He also played around with negative reversal film, to obtain some of the video's more distinctive images.

The song made it to number 19 in the local charts.
