Where it all began. The Clean (David and Hamish Kilgour and Robert Scott) provided the impetus for Flying Nun and the inspiration for a whole load of bands who drove the so-called Dunedin sound and alternative music around the world. I just love this comment on you tube
The Clean is the Velvet Underground of the Southern Pacific! I’m from Finland and The Clean was my favorite band in 1986 and still is. Your tiny little part of the world touched very much my tiny? little part of the world in the far north. Strange, eh?
They continue to make great music, collectively and through solo projects and Robert’s leadership of The Bats. This song is 29 years old, and it still sounds as fresh and spikey as ever. The first time I heard it live was at Sammys at the Flying Nun 10th anniversary party. I am not sure you could call what followed dancing, but my god I loved it!
