Hero image for Super Gyration

'Super Gyration' was the first release for Waikato band The Datsuns, initially as a vinyl only 7 inch 45. Director Greg Page had to abandon his original concept the night before the shoot, when he lost his location. Instead, he prevailed on an Onehunga panel beater’s shop and filmed the band rocking out amidst cars were provided by the Ooga Rodders hot rod club. They weren’t huge fans of Datsun automobiles and took some persuading, but the band’s music won them over. In a clip full of cars, the only Datsun is the one 35 seconds in — and the one visible on the single’s picture sleeve, on a dishwasher in the kitchen.
