This song was a limited-edition, non-album single released in 1982, inbetween the Models 1981 album "Local &/or General" and 1983 album "The Pleasure of Your Company". The video is set in some sort of bizarre post-apocalyptic cross between a car wrecking yard and an abbatoir. Don't watch this video if severed pigs heads make you squeamish. The original mix of the song used on this video is extremely rare and only available on the limited release 7" vinyl. The version I've used here is slightly different, taken from the 1993 compilation album "Models Collection". The original version of the song has never been re-released anywhere.
Models were an alternative rock group formed in Melbourne, Australia, in August 1978 and went into hiatus in 1988. They are often referred to as "The Models" (Mark Ferrie refers to "The Models" in his work bio for example). They re-formed in 2000, 2006 and 2008 to perform reunion concerts. "Out of Mind, Out of Sight", their only No. 1 hit, appeared on the Australian singles charts in July 1985. The related album, Out of Mind, Out of Sight, peaked at No. 3 on the Australian albums charts after its release in August. Out of Mind, Out of Sight appeared on the Billboard 200 albums chart, with the single, "Out of Mind, Out of Sight", peaking at No. 37 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. An earlier song from the same album, "Barbados", had peaked at No. 2 on the Australian singles chart.
