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).
