Get Sweet

by Rosie Sutherland

In the late seventies Dave Seymour and Murray Ingersole used an 8mm camera to film their friends (including my husband Mark) surfing, skateboarding and just goofing around. They made two 30 minute films, Little Tuesday and Surfarosso Antiko, and presented an entire show including mock cinema advertising for such items as ‘Murray’s Durries’ cigarettes! They cued the soundtrack live from a record player, with epic tunes from bands like The Doors and Fleetwood Mac. The live production was recorded onto VHS and resurfaced recently to be transferred to DVD (by me). The footage captures the surfside lifestyle of the late seventies in Australia so well that I couldn’t resist asking to use it for a music video. Having the cover of a Beach Boys song on the album made it the obvious choice…
