Synopsis

Title track and first single from the debut Straitjacket Fits album with the trademark epic, brooding menace that they did so well. An old brass tap dripping rust (or blood) and a plumber threatening with a wrench are among the disquieting scenes; and director Peter Cathro gets his Alfred Hitchcock moment as the reaper figure runs through tunnels on Waiheke Island. The video effects of the day get a good work out as do the carnival/merry-go-round images that graced the cover of the LP (but not the subsequent CD versions which had completely different artwork).
