Clinic Live In Session

2 06 2008

Here’s a couple of videos featuring the marvellous Clinic in session at the spacious studios for 89.3 The Current. They perform two of my favourite songs from their current album, ‘Do It’ – them being Emotions and Shopping Bag. They sound pretty much as you’d expect but that’s the make of a great band, I think. Most of my favourite bands have a very distinctive sound – many of them, such as Stereolab, Clinic, The Fall, New Order, etc. are often accused of only having one tune. But if it’s a fucking great tune, I don’t really care.





Clinic – The Witch

9 03 2008

Another new Clinic video and it’s pretty much business as usual. Certainly less of a diversion than the last one, ‘Free Not Free’ but still as pleasurable as ever. It’s taken from ‘Do It’ which comes out in April. It looks like it was probably shot in the same afternoon as the last video what with it’s swirling psychedelic lights.

Things may be a little quieter than usual around here for the next week or so but I’ll definitely blog if I get the chance.





Clinic – Free Not Free

4 02 2008

Here’s the new video for Clinic’s new single – ‘Free Not Free’ which you can also download for free here, along with another track ‘Thor’. ‘Free Not Free’ is taken from their forthcoming album, ‘Do It’ which comes out in April and despite the distorted guitar chords at the beginning and the end is mostly a fairly laidback mellow tune, even featuring a flute! Clinic have this great trick, not unlike Stereolab and The Fall, of always sounding distinctly like themselves – almost like they have a uni-song no matter what style of music they put their hands to. I’m not sure if ‘Free Not Free’ was ironically chosen to be the free download single or if it’s a comment on the way music is currently going but either way it’s a rather fantastic tune and bodes well for their next album.
