Christchurch music videos: Block of Wood – The Bats

Director Jonathan Ogilvie’s clip features a chainsaw of Damocles and the ventriloquist’s dummy from the album cover — and a poignant Christchurch location. The distinctive, triangular ANZ Bank Chambers (where the band members play on the balconies) and surrounding buildings at the intersection of Manchester, High and Lichfield streets were devastated in the city’s earthquakes.
