I spotted that alright - it's not often I feel glad I read the comments!  I didn't know about this at the time, but found out about it through the board (most likely the goth contingent, aka Jim Campbell).  Was that Tony Luke's model Nemesis?  I know it was used in another music video.

I have mentioned it in the past, although I remain vaguely baffled by the contention that Shriekback are/were a goth band. The album this is from — Oil and Gold — is great, but oddly schizophrenic. If you've seen the film 'Manhunter' then you've heard about half of it… all the ethereal pan-pipey stuff on the soundtrack is from Oil and Gold.

The rest is stuff like the aforementioned 'Nemesis' or the splendidly loopy Hammerheads, which scores bonus points for the line "This is our mission: to be the Daleks of God."

Is it not a proud Goth band tradition to deny they are/were a Goth band?
You may quote me on that.

That’s the thing — bands don’t get to decide, goths decide! All I know is that in about fifteen fairly active years in the gothic scene, I never heard ‘em played at a single club night, nor saw them listed on DJ’s playlists that got posted to online forums/newsgroups.

Fair enough... Was a wee bit gothy myself but only really scratched the surface.  I hopped around a few scenes and never really found my own one. 

EDIT - But I do know it wasn't Britpop.

EDIT 2 - So which video had the Tony Luke models then?
