Around 1994/95, the Melniks played a gig in Brisbane called Megapop. The gig was captured on home video, and you can watch some footage from the night by clicking on the links below. The quality isn't great, but it's better than nothing! Some of the clips start off a bit dark, but the lights do come on.
The Megapop show was Trevor Ludlow's last with his post-Melnik band Biro before he headed overseas. As a special treat for both Trevor and the audience, the Melniks let him jump up on stage to play some old Melniks ditties with Cass and John Swingle. The first video below features Cass, Trevor and John playing a song called Instrumental - which actually has words! There's also some banter and a dodgy cover of the Guns n Roses classic Sweet Child o Mine. In addition to the Cass/Ludlow/Swingle stuff, there's a couple of videos featuring the classic four piece Melniks.
- 3 Piece Melniks - Banter / instrumental / Sweet child o' mine
- 4 piece Melniks - Little Old Green Man
- 4 piece Melniks - Big Toe
