‘Cruise Control’ is one of Headless Chicken’s most poppy and accessible songs, and became a hit in New Zealand, and (in remixed form), in Australia. This studio shot promo, for the ‘Eskimos in Egypt’ remix, has Fiona McDonald and the Chickens packed into a touring car, cruising through old school, rear projected cityscapes at night. It’s dark and moody: a wry touch of Hollywood glamour mixed with early 90s Auckland — dated by Knight Rider, bling and brick-sized mobile phones.
It made the national Top Ten, and, more significantly, became only the second Flying Nun record to gain widespread mainstream airplay.– Writer Russell Brown on 'Cruise Control', Rip It Up 171, October 1991, page 19,
