Skateboarding with Nitzer Ebb

This previously unreleased video features Nitzer Ebb founding members Bon Harris, Douglas McCarthy and David Gooday skateboarding in their hometown of Chelmsford, Essex, UK circa 1984. The video was shot by the band’s then manager Chris Piper. Nitzer Ebb were heavily into skateboarding in the ‘80s/‘90s and ended up befriending Tony Hawk when their “Showtime” album blew up in 1990. The song used for the video is Nitzer Ebb’s “Fun To Be Had” from “Showtime”.
