Left In The Gutter

Who directed the video clip?
Bodie J Smith

What's the concept behind the clip?
We're hanging out as cowboys in the desert, playing ten-pin bowling with longneck bottles, when Xavier (drums) cheats by rolling a spare and shooting the last bottle down to make it seem like he got a strike. Basically from that point on, all hell breaks loose and the whole band ends up killing each other, only to wake up in a room, bloodied up and playing our instruments.

How long did it take to make?
One day for the desert scene and half a day for the band shots.

Where did you film it?
The desert part was at Kurnell sand dunes in Sydney's south and the band part was shot at a friend's warehouse in the inner west.

Who filmed it and how'd they film it?
Bodie J Smith, Kael Leak and John Silver – three buddies of ours helped film. All on one camera, I don't know what kind. A deceptive gadget that looked like a regular film camera but wasn't.

What's your favourite part of the clip?
The scene where I, Cass (vocals), kill Mitch (bass) with a bowling ball. It was actually a condom full of fake blood that I smashed and not his real, pretty face.

Was anything in particular inspiring you during the making?
Probably just the fact that a) we got to play cowboys/use fake blood etc., and b) the director is a mate of ours from high school, so nobody had any reservations in terms of throwing ideas out, over-acting or being ridiculous.

Will you be launching it?
