Creed McTaggart’s Hawaiian Home Video

Iggy Pop at Pipe, rooster hunting and an abundance of surf-mats on the North Shore.

“Down Hill From Here” – a handycam wonder and home job edit from Creed and the Rage gangs December North Shore escapades. 

If you’ve come here for the smooth lines and back-footed hacks of Creed, you’ll likely be bitterly disappointed. However, what the film lacks in hi-fidelity shredding, it makes up for in surf-mat skipping, slow-mo rooster captures, Stab’s Iggy Pop shoot with the Bong’s biggest hitters and a heavily distorted recollection of Iggy’s North Shore takeover. 

Creed described the trip as one of the best of his life, and taking to the stage with the Stooges frontman – in an impromptu appearance – would’ve had any one of us foaming at the mouth.  

If your immutable surf thirst must be quenched though, then you’ll find some form of “surfing” from the 5:50 mark, which is predominantly a mat sliding and shorey booging compilation. And if you’re only here for onstage visuals of Iggy’s leather handbag hips and velvety voice then skip along to 12 minutes and onwards. 

The film has left the Stab office pondering a few questions about the boys trip, including the editing process adopted – this ain’t not Academy Award winner that’s for sure.

1 – Why does Beauy insist on an eye-popping, yet honest, purple rashy?

2 – Who and why is that inebriated man on a rooster hunting mission?

3 – Do any of them even surf anymore?

And finally, is Creedo available to edit the next Stab concept shoot with his impeccable visual editiing and cartoon splicing. 

If you have 20 minutes to blow this very-minute, hop right in, if not, perhaps settle yourself down for more than a few post-work beverages and indulge in the film; a few illicit condiments wouldn’t go astray either.  

Don’t say we didn’t warn you on this one.
