One of Australia’s most loved bands, Augie March is back. ‘After The Crack Up’ is the first song from Augie March’s forthcoming fifth album. The official video places the band in a piece of cinema history – the world’s first ever feature-length narrative film. The Story Of The Kelly Gang, made in 1906 was at its time a wildly successful film in Australia and abroad. Despite its fame, the historic film was thought to have been lost by 1940 as all known prints had disappeared. In 1976 a lucky find started a chain of events that eventually led to the film being painstakingly restored by the National Film and Sound Archive.

The video for After The Crack Up is faithful to the film’s silent-movie style. It was directed and edited by Colin and Cameron Cairnes, the team behind the Australian horror-comedy 100 Bloody Acres, for which Augie March singer-songwriter Glenn Richards provided the music score. The Cairnes brothers had also previously worked with the band on videos for their songs The Mothball (1998) and The Hole In Your Roof (2000).
The band and directors would like to thank the National Film and Sound Archive, and Madman Entertainment, for their assistance in the making of this video. More information from the NFSA:
