Jesus I Was Evil

Darcy Clay , Music Video – 1997

from the EP Jesus I Was Evil (EP) (1997)

This raw and rowdy video gives a fleeting insight into the all-too-short life of Darcy Clay. Recorded on a primitive four-track tape machine, 'Jesus I Was Evilwas a demented fusion of country and garage rock that, combined with Clay's fetching Evel Knievel-style onesies, heralded the arrival of an eccentric new voice. Darcy's school friend David Gunson agreed to shoot the video for a few hundred dollars and a bottle of whisky — editor Ian Bennett ended up getting the whisky. The wry humour and energy captured in the video stands as a fitting testament to his subject.

The video for 'Jesus I Was Evil' was shot on a Handycam, the narrative uniquely Darcy Clay. It cost $250 and a bottle of whisky! So Darcy Clay.
– Producer Tim Moon, May 2009
