Watch Fat Freddy’s Drop’s new video, ‘Raleigh Twenty’ music video. It’s the latest drop off album ‘Special Edition Part 1.’
The song and video inspired by the classic Raleigh 20 bike, popular in New Zealand in the 70’s & early 80’s. The music video idea came about over a breakfast of muesli, orange juice and a stack of pancakes between Freddy’s vocalist Dallas Tamaira aka Joe Dukie and video director Mark Williams.
Peter Gallagher, the bike mechanic in the video, is a genuine veteran of the NZ BMX scene who runs Rad garage in Auckland. The lead biker is Tumohio Newman who discovers the Raleigh 20 and takes it to Pete to rebuild the classic bike and make it roadworthy again. The ride transports us to NYC and the awesome 537 Ryderz from the Lower East side of Manhattan.
