Push Push, from Auckland's North Shore, took elements of LA hair metal and glam rock and combined them with the presence and huge voice of lead singer (and future radio and TV presenter) Mikey Havoc. Their infectious debut single 'Trippin'' spent six weeks at number one in 1991 but two further singles, and a respectably-received album in A Trillion Shades of Happy, couldn't emulate its success. 'Trippin'' later had a second life in a techno version by Miz Ima Starr and Baitercell which featured in Athina Tsoulis' feature film I'll Make You Happy.
'Trippin'' was the debut single and biggest hit for these early 90s North Shore rockers who were powered by the lung-filled squall of future media personality Mikey Havoc. It spent six weeks on top of the NZ singles chart, propelled in part by this highly effective performance video from Chris and Tim Mauger. The clip provides ample testimony to the power of guitars, hair, t-shirts, that voice and a healthy dose of strobe lighting. It's worth noting that, even at this formative stage of his career, Mr Havoc isn't exactly shy of a camera.
