HUGE hit on National Radio. Video of the EYE song "Mandate!" Thought to be the first tune with Australian Prime Minister John Howard on guest vocals. Recorded just after the national election, which the Liberal (conservative) party really LOST with a minority vote (yet remained in power due to flaws in the electoral system) this was a big hit on student/community radio around Australia - all those years ago! The video was played on ABC TV's "Rage" and SBS TV's "Alchemy" programs.
Other possibly slightly of interest details: The video was made by DigiHed Productions for free (gracias!) at a military installation video editing suite. The "band" footage was filmed on the lawns of Australia's Parliament House. EYE were soon asked to leave by security in squad cars or be arrested. Kind of fun if you were there perhaps. NOTE: The video accidentally has the unmastered (lower quality) audio of this song!
PS - To know more on what this song is about - how a major political party can win power in Australia even when the majority of people votes against it, and how a huge amount of votes, 20%, for smaller parties or independent candidates, get "lost in the wash", see http://www.blatantpropaganda.org/prop...
