Augie March Film Clip – Never Been Sad

Augie March Film Clip – Never Been Sad

augie march - nevere been sad clip

“Lissome Pete, Angelica apple cheek, ever the inheritors, you don’t strike as mild or meek
Just a genre, fodder, no canon, you read like a dunny wall I don’t want to read at all…”

The video for ‘Never Been Sad’ from the Augie March album ‘Havens Dumb’ sees the band working again with Ben Saunders, who made the wonderful clips for seminal Augie tracks The Vineyard, Little Wonder, The Cold Acre and One Crowded Hour.

You can watch it here ‘Never Been Sad’ 

The video was shot on the green fields of a farm near Meredith, Victoria and features ‘the kids of Jan Juc”.  As for the song itself, here’s what singer-songwriter Glenn Richards says about its conception:

“Grumpy old man song probably had it’s first flash in the sun-drenched courtyard of Preachers bar in Battery Point, surrounded by perky Young Liberals who were just beginning to scent the winds of change to come, fresh loads of premium Sandy Bay manure in preparation for dumping over the existing desiccated turd puzzle.  The insidious are always so very nice at the first meeting.  In that ozonic (not yet animalic) field, dazed by early afternoon red beer and the sensory marina of interchangeable Calvin Klein aquatics, this pretty misery guts of a tune had its divine spark flinted.”

“…their long-awaited return to the stage, better than ever. These songs, new and old, have a power, undiminished neither by absence nor nascence. Any quantifiable success, past or future, is arbitrary. Augie March are important, plain and simple. It’s very good to have them back.”
FASTER LOUDER (HOWLER)
In June 2014, one of Australia’s finest and most-loved bands Augie March announced their return from a six-year hiatus. This very welcome news was swiftly followed by the announcement that the band had quietly been creating a fifth studio album, Havens Dumb, in Hobart and Melbourne over the preceding three years. The band’s return to the live stage came in the form of playing at Howler, a few streets away from the scene of their first-ever show sixteen years earlier, in Brunswick Victoria. They ended up doing five nights in a row by popular demand. It was indeed a triumphant return, with the band in best-ever form, playing better than ever, and enjoying themselves for the first time in a long time.

Fans around the country and indeed the world have been hoping the band would decide to play some more shows and it is with the greatest pleasure that Augie March announce a national tour in some of the finest performances spaces the nation has to offer, from the Meredith Supernatural Amphitheatre to Hobart’s Mona to the Sydney Opera House, Melbourne Recital Centre, Her Majesty’s Theatre Adelaide and the Astor Theatre in Perth. They also play Brisbane’s great new live space The Triffid, the Ulumbarra Theatre in Bendigo and Tanks Art Centre in Cairns. Augie March – Glenn Richards, Kiernan Box, Edmondo Ammendola, Adam Donovan and Dave Williams, plus a horn section – will play these special concerts featuring songs from throughout their 17-year career.
