Fault in the Frog
Able Tasmans – 1992
An "essay on global warming" written by Leslie Jonkers. Skirling bagpipes and spinning pomegranates give away to amoeba and swirling shots of trees. The band is shot in colour amongst Christmas decorations - and in black and white in a forest as the song spins and builds. A Chrysler Valiant is the car of choice giving way to footage of a village in Africa, a forest in Asia, the Golden Gate Bridge and Speakers' Corner in London. And why a frog? Because in water being gradually heated it doesn't notice the changing temperature and will be poached.
