The lifespan of these Christchurch experimental rockers was short but sure; they were rumoured to be a major early influence for Sonic Youth. They disbanded after releasing early 80s records awash in driving guitar. One of the founding members, Alister Parker, went on to form Nelsh Bailter Space (later Bailterspace). Melody Maker: "saying Gordons were loud is like saying the Beatles were a pop group". NME: "When you put it on not only will your lawn die, your Motorhead albums will shrivel in their sleeves."
Bold lighting and caterwauling guitars push this largely black and white performance clip above others of the era. Silhouette and strobing make for a mesmerising video that deserves a consumer health warning for those affected by flashing lights. After line-up changes and much remembered live gigs, the Christchurch noise-meisters ultimately morphed into Bailterspace.
