Hero image for Trippin'

'Trippin'' was the debut single and biggest hit for early 90s North Shore rockers Push Push, who were powered by the lung-filled squall of future media personality Mikey Havoc. It spent six weeks on top of the Kiwi singles chart, propelled in part by this highly effective, and award-winning 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 the camera.

From the moment the hyper, hairy, hallucinogenic video for Push Push’s 'Trippin'’ first appeared on New Zealand television, the single was bound for glory. The noisy Auckland rock act’s debut single spent six weeks at the top of the NZ Singles Chart through April and May 1991, at a time when local music struggled to be noticed.
