My girlfriend's [pregnancy] test turned blue she had become pregnant I can't afford to be a daddy so I leave tonight". The lyrics towards the very end of the song are: "There's a hole in my pocket!
My pocket! The original release Hard-Fi - Cash Machine (Vinyl) "Cash Machine" was not intended by the band to be chart eligible, instead it was released to get the band radio play and hype for the following release, " Tied Up Too Tight ". As a result, it was released with a free sticker, a stunt pulled to force the single into being released. The band had pre-planned to release the song later which turned out to be on 26 Decemberwhere it reached number 14 in the UK Singles Chartsnumber 15 in the US Modern Rock chart and top 40 in the NetherlandsItaly and Ireland.
This is the original video which has Hard-Fi's boss "Mr. Big" telling the band that "the reason you boys are so skint is the record company hasn't paid us. The band, wearing masks of political figures such as Queen Elizabeth II and Tony Blairend up mostly fighting each other, while lead singer Archer discovers the case believed to hold the tapes. He is then held at gunpoint by the courier, but saved by the other three band members, guitarist Ross Phillips, Hard-Fi - Cash Machine (Vinyl), drummer Steve Kemp and bassist Kai Stephenswho jump on the courier and take the case.
The band cover him with Silly String and take the case to a hideout to discover that it contains only the courier's lunch. Archer then exclaims "Oh knickers! The video is interspersed with shots of the band playing in a field near an airport as large planes fly overhead. It contains a sly reference to their idols the Clash : during the performance in the field, Archer pulls a mask off Hard-Fi - Cash Machine (Vinyl) Stephens' face - in the video for " Rock the Casbah ", when Joe Strummer reveals guitarist Mick Jones ' face.
The whole budget was pizzabeer and world leader masks. The rest was favours from friends, but for the second one we had much more money. When we made that single we weren't signed to a major label yet but a small independent who we're still signed to but have licensed to the major.
And we thought we needed a single and a video for it. But we had no money. A mate of mine Hard-Fi - Cash Machine (Vinyl) pretty good with a camera, and we decided to make a Heist movie, because we'd seen a documentary about a heist and the U2 " Beautiful Day " video - obviously that was done with CGI graphics and hundreds of thousands of pounds, but we thought 'Let's use our brains, our resources, what's round us.
We live right underneath Heathrow Airport, let's go and do it for real. That's pretty bad. But we were there for about half an hour. The security must have seen us with all this gear, playing a gig at the end of the runway and thought we must've had permission.
The hardest bit was we had a portable stereo playing the track to mime along to, which sounded loud in the room but outdoors with a going over your head and the ground shaking you can't hear anything. So, if you look carefully we're all out of sync.
And then we'd gone by then. I love it when a plan comes together. And of course, the airport's on our doorstep so we thought we'd use it. The guy who was directing it went into the visitors centre and said 'I'm moving into the area. Can you tell me where the planes will be coming in tomorrow cos I want to know how they relate to the house Hard-Fi - Cash Machine (Vinyl) buying. But I think the people who saw us - a band set up and playing music - though they must have permission otherwise it's too ridiculous, so they left us to get on with it.
So we got what we needed then quickly got out of there. This is the second video made, but is the one most often used on television. This due to that many channels would not play either of the other two as they feature too much illegal activity, Hard-Fi - Cash Machine (Vinyl).
It also shows the interior of a cash machine staffed by miniature humans, including the four band members, who are working in conditions akin to coal mines. The images are similar to the Fire planet from season 3 of the science fantasy television series Lexx. The video shows these people involved in all steps of making the money, from cutting down the trees used for the paper, to painting the money, to pushing it through the slot when someone requires it.
The workers finally rebel, and destroy the interior of the machine in a series of explosions. Life-sized Archer comes to the machine shortly after these events and, finding a message declaring the machine out of service, again proclaims, "Oh knickers! The third video is an X-rated version of the video which the band put up as a download for mobile phones and is still available on iTunes. The video follows a ten-pound note through several owners.
