NZ Music Month

New Zealand Music Month - Day 13

The Clean are actually reasonably well served by re-releases and reissues... with one glaring exception. To the best of my knowledge, this, the original version of Thumbs Off, as heard on the Boodle Boodle Boodle EP, has never been re-released. The only versions I've heard on compilation and anthology releases have been either live or re-mixed (possibly re-recorded) ones without the they-probably-intended-it-to-sound-like-a-jangle sound in the chorus.

Video is somebody's home movies, for some unfathomable reason.
