Every now and then a moment happens when you're making a film that keeps you going. It's a cockatil of people who come together and produce something far beyond your expectation. That's what happened one night at the legendary Studio 301 in Sydney some forty years ago when we assembled to record the main theme for our film GOING DOWN. Ian Nimmo one of the actors had written a song we all thought would suit. The guitar player's guitar player Tim Piper arranged it and our friend Julie Cook said she'd have a go at singing it. Spencer Lee was producing for us. Spencer had recorded every great act in Australia - he'd seen it all. We laid down an instrument track and then the unknown Julie walked into the studio. She opened her mouth and the glass in the control room vibrated. Spencer stared out into the studio transfixed then looked across and asked "Who's this girl?". That night something special happened. Julie's not with us anymore but she was one of Australia's great undiscovered talents.
We had a roll of film and cameraman Tony Gailey suggested we shoot a music vid. It disappeared over the years and only resurfaced a few weeks ago. Here it is. A creatiive explosion that had us all amazed.
