Lost links & Re-ups

On any post, if the link is no longer good, leave a comment if you want the music re-uploaded. As long as I still have the file, or the record, cd, or cassette to re-rip, I will gladly accommodate in a timely manner all such requests.

Time to Come Clean

I suppose I don’t really need to go to any great lengths telling you all about The Clean. Formed in Dunedin, New Zealand by brothers David (guitar) & Hamish (drums) Kilgour. After a few line-up changes, the brothers K settled on Robert Scott as their bass player. The band was the forerunner of NZ punk. They are practically the reason why the phenomenal label Flying Nun came into existence. Their sound is unique, combining elements as divergent as surf rock, pop, dub, psychedelia, kraut rock, & punk. They influenced myriad bands such as Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Pavement, Guided By Voices & many, many more.

The Clean’s Syd's Pink Wiring System is made up of material recorded in 2000 (tracks 1-9 recorded live at Sammy's, Dunedin, NZ on 13 Oct 2000 for a live Broadcast from Dunedin by KFJC 89.7 FM Foothill College, Palo Alto, CA. - 10-11 recorded live at Arc Cafe, Dunedin, NZ on 7 Nov 2000) & was released to help support the bands June 2003 US tour. The music here is chameleon-like, mesmerizing, improvisational…variations on many of their best tunes. This release is currently OOP.
