SHEEN OF GOLD - SKEPTICS FILM NOW STREAMING AT NZ ON SCREEN

News

The news is written by a mysterious person. Maybe Wendy Broccoli.


NZ on Screen is now streaming the excellent film Sheen of Gold, by Simon Ogston. Watch it below or on their website.

Experimental noise band the Skeptics are best known for their 1987 single 'AFFCO' (named after a meat processing company) and its controversial video. For devoted fans, the band's mix of what Flying Nun founder Roger Shepherd calls "chopped up bits of sound" with vocalist David D'Ath's enigmatic lyrics makes the Skeptics one of New Zealand's most fascinating bands. Simon Ogston's feature-length documentary explores the band's Palmerston North origins, and interviews band members and collaborators. The presence of D'Ath looms large; his untimely death at age 26 ended the Skeptics' singular musical journey. 

It's a cartoon of horror...for us it was like Motorhead's 'Ace of Spades' played on a lot of mushrooms and acid, by a Flying Nun band.
