Cold Chisel – Cheap Wine

Cold Chisel’s promo-video for the hit single ‘Cheap Wine’ (May, 1980) taken from the 1980 album ‘East’.

The cover art for ‘East’ was inspired by the 1793 painting The Death of Marat. The photo of Barnes was taken at Philip Mortlock’s apartment in Elizabeth Bay, where the video for Cheap Wine was later shot. Barnes had purchased the headband in Japan, and years later discovered he had worn it upside-down.

The album was preceded by the release of the single “Choirgirl” that was actually recorded in October 1979 and released in November, the band’s first recording with Mark Opitz who would then work on all subsequent Cold Chisel albums. The songs “Cheap Wine” and “My Baby” were also released as singles. East was the first Cold Chisel album to feature tracks written by all members of the band.
