The Chills - Lost In Space (live at the Windsor Castle, Auckland, 10 May 1985)


"Lost In Space" was among the first generation of songs that Martin Phillipps wrote for The Chills, along with other compositions such as "I Saw Your Silhouette", "Rolling Moon", "16 Heart Throbs" and "Juicy Creaming Soda", among others. It was performed on a regular basis from early 1981 until the demise of the Phase 9 line up in February 1986, and after a long absence was reinstated into the bands set in 2007 and has been performed live ever since then. Unfortunately the song was never properly recorded in a studio. In 2000, however, a live version of the song, recorded on a cassette recorder by a member of the audience at a concert in Auckland nearly three years before this performance was filmed, was included as the opening track on disk one of the 3CD "Secret Box" compilation. This concert was filmed by Bob Sutton on a Panasonic video camera, the same video camera that was used to film the Doublehappys "Needles and Plastic" video the following month. It was digitised from the original master tape in December 2010. The Chills lineup at this point was Martin Phillipps (guitars/vocals), Terry Moore (bass/vocals), Peter Allison (keyboards/vocals), Alan Haig (drums).

The Chills - Juicy Creaming Soda (live at the Windsor Castle, Auckland, 10 May 1985)


"Juicy Creaming Soda" was among the first generation of songs that Martin Phillipps wrote for The Chills, along with other compositions such as "I Saw Your Silhouette", "Rolling Moon", "16 Heart Throbs" and "Lost In Space", among others. It was first performed in early 1981 and remained in the band's set until the demise of the Phase 9 line up in February 1986, however it has been occasionally performed by Martin Phillipps at solo shows since then. Unfortunately the song was never properly recorded in a studio, and eventually a live recording of the song, recorded at a concert in Dunedin from the mixing desk onto a cassette recorder under a month before this performance was filmed, was included on disk one of the 3CD "Secret Box" compilation, released in 2000. This concert was filmed by Bob Sutton on a Panasonic video camera, the same video camera that was used to film the Doublehappys "Needles and Plastic" video (with negative effect seen briefly at the start) the following month. This was digitised from the original master tape in December 2010. The Chills lineup at this point was Martin Phillipps (guitars/vocals), Terry Moore (bass/vocals), Peter Allison (keyboards/vocals), Alan Haig (drums).

Flamethrower - live at the Rumba Bar, Auckland 1982



Despite this being the released version of Flamethrower that subsequently appeared on the Rolling Moon single (the last half of the official video clip is taken directly from this footage), the audio you are hearing is from the T.V.N.Z camera's inbuilt microphone, not the Chris Knox and Doug Hood 4-Track mix.

This was a private show, other bands on the bill included The Clean, Tall Dwarfs, Nocturnal Projections and This Sporting Life. The show was not only was filmed by T.V.N.Z. but was also recorded on a TEAC 4-Track by Chris Knox and Doug Hood; some of the audio subsequently released includes "Flamethrower" by the Chills as one of two B-sides to the Rolling Moon single (1982) and "Two Fat Sisters" and "Happy Birthday John" by The Clean, released on their posthumous 12" E.P. Live Dead Clean (1986). The Chills line up at this point in time was Martin Phillipps (guitars / vocals), Terry Moore (bass / vocals), Rachel Phillipps (keyboards) and Martyn Bull (drums).

Bite -Live at the Rumba Bar 1982



"Bite" was the first of two B-sides on the "Rolling Moon" single. David Kilgour plays second guitar on this live version as well as the released version (which was, along with "Rolling Moon", recorded at the Deer Stalkers Hall in Auckland, four days after this concert was filmed). Some of the other people joining in on stage are Robert Scott of the Clean, Chris Knox, Alec Bathgate, Paul Kean and what looks like Jane Walker (all from Toy Love), and Steve Android. Note the camera operator knocking one of the overhead drum mics onto Martyn Bull's drum kit, Martyn gives a hand pushing it back up and doesn't miss a beat.
