Today's Music Month Flashback is Lydia by Fur Patrol, from 1999.
Prolific music video director Jonathan King delivers a simple but nicely-executed clip for this evoca-tive song with its great snarling vocal performance from singer Julia Deans.
Although the band act like nothing is wrong and pull off an artful mime, it soon becomes clear that they have no instruments.
Shot in extremely narrow focus, singer Deans' some-times wistful, sometimes sneering performance matches the brooding tone of the song, which topped the Kiwi charts.
The clip was shot at Verona Cafe on Auckland's K Road.
Lydia was the third single from the band's debut album Pet.
