The Chills share lost music video for 1982 debut single “Rolling Moon”
Coronavirus isolation has had an interesting silver lining side effect: artists are revisiting long abandoned projects, digging through their archives and unearthing lost treasures. For example, New Zealand indie icons The Chills have just shared a music video for their classic 1982 debut single, "Rolling Moon," which was filmed but never actually completed. The band's Martin Phillipps explains:
Something special for all you Chills fans as legendary New Zealand cameraman/director Peter Janes has used lockdown time to edit together the long-lost 'Rolling Moon' footage into a clip. The results of the 1982 shoot at Pilots Bay, Dunedin were originally deemed largely too dark for use and then the film was lost for over three decades and only recently discovered in time for a tiny piece of it to be included in the documentary 'The Chills: The Triumph & Tragedy Of Martin Phillipps'. But now we finally have a promo clip for our first 7" single from 1982. Enjoy!'
Amazing. Watch that video, 38 years in the making, below.
