SKEPTICS - III LP
A stunning New Zealand industrial group on the country's best known label, Flying Nun. They went mostly ignored from their beginnings in 1979 until they released the III LP with that infamous video. See below for that story. I love this record and it would fit well in any collection with industrial tastes. -Jensen
In August 1987 Skeptics made a video for the Skeptics III track "AFFCO", named after the New Zealand meat processing company AFFCO. Directed by Stuart Page, the video was filmed in the Westfield Freezing Company and Kellax meat packers in Auckland and included graphic footage of lambs being slaughtered and cut up, contrasted with footage of lambs in a field. Singer David d'Ath also appeared wrapped in plastic cling film and fake blood.Due to its graphic content, the video has rarely been broadcast on New Zealand television, but has been screened at various art exhibitions in New Zealand and at Film Archive screenings and is now freely available to watch here:
