Renowned for building artful sweet'n'dirty musings from basic pop frames, Superette was born in 1993 when David Mulcahy (ex-JPS Experience) teamed up with Ben Howe and Greta Anderson. In 1995, the trio unleashed the aural animal within, by way of their debut EP Rosepig, and then 1996's full-length album Tiger. Both releases showcased the songwriting talent of Mulcahy, and were applauded as paragons of languid, dark but lilting kiwi pop.
Stuart Page's work is sometimes controversial, often breathtakingly beautiful, and always memorable. And Killer Clown, one of the most exhilaratingly engaging and original music videos NZ has ever produced, is no exception. The delightful colours, simple special effects and outstanding performances merge to produce a kind of sickly sweet malevolence, rendering this work of art greater than the sum of its parts.
