It’s NZ Music Month and the Herald has partnered with NZ On Screen to bring you a music video of a classic New Zealand song every day of the month. Today’s flashback is a number one from 1988.

Today's Music Month flashback for NZ Music Month is Nobody Else by Rikki Morris and Tex Pistol.

For the music video for this lush, spacious ballad, teenage director Paul Middleditch continues the striking visual style that he had established a year earlier with his video for the Tex Pistol hit, The Game of Love.

Tex (Ian Morris) wears the same outfit while his brother Rikki is clad in the reverse - white shirt and black jeans.

Backing vocalist Callie Blood appears again (although she didn't actually sing on this recording), a choir of children is added, along with some behind the scenes shots of the crew.


Nobody Else was a number one hit and spent 16 weeks in the pop charts.
