  1. Mi-Sex

Synopsis

After a debut single that flirted with punk parody, this moody, accusatory follow-up firmly points Mi-Sex in the direction of the electronic influenced rock that will characterise their future sound — and make them one of Australia's leading acts in the 80s. In his leathers, lead singer Steve Gilpin has firmly said good-bye to his previous career in light entertainment. The video places the band members amongst outsized pieces on a giant chess board — a rather curious staging choice, perhaps, given that the king and queen in the lyrics are playing cards.

A chess set with stylised playing cards as pieces would be pretty choice. Obviously Clubs vs Hearts, with the off suits for the excess "good" units.

A: Knights
2-9: Pawns
10: Rooks
J: Bishops
Q: Queen
K: King

Also: as an aside, my first comment here and I really appreciate all these rad kiwi videos. I don't think I am going to achieve anything this morning.
