Product Description

Product Description

Acclaimed Rock Quartet from Liverpool's Third Full Length. A Twist of Dub and 60s Garage, 'the Seeds Meet the Fall and Neu! '. Their Single 'the Second Line' was a Hit Levi's Jeans Commercial in the UK. Vocalist Ade Blackburn 'sounds a Bit Like Gordon Gano of the Violent Femmes and Frank Black During his Youthful Come on Pilgrim Days'. Japanese Version features Two Bonus Tracks: 'the Sphinx' and 'mechanical Madrigal'.

Fans of the Clinic's uniquely eerie take on '60s and '70s U.S. garage rock will be pleased by their second long player, Walking with Thee, which contains the same amount of malevolence lurking within. It also sounds quite marvelous. On their debut album, Internal Wrangler, this British four-piece displayed a ferocious, focused melding of garage, art rock, Krautrock, surf, and any other left-field genre you'd care to mention. Clinic will no doubt tire of the continual Velvet Underground comparisons, but while they have mined rock's cooler record collections, they've nevertheless created disorientating and utterly compelling music. From the bass-driven chug of "Welcome" (a heady collision of the Ronettes and '60s sci-fi soundtrack music) to the sweat-drenched derangement of "Pet Eunoch," Clinic are clearly in thrall to mid-'70s New York, but among the detached, icy vocals and Suicide-like minimalism, the album contains electronic undercurrents and off-kilter pop moments that are the band's own. The pervasive mood is of unease and disquiet; on the unsettling closer, "For the Wars," Ade Blackburn sings, "Now it's safe and warm." And, of course, it's anything but. --Suzannah Brown

...but is it rock and roll? What is this? Who cares, it's good. I'm not here to compare it to Internal Wrangler, only here to say that this record is amazing, it gives new hope to rock and roll (the new record comes out this year) and is a lot better than the White Stripes or the Strokes or Jet (etc, etc).
At first listen, it may seem too weird or daunting to you, but after awhile, you realize it's none of those things at all. Clinic can write a great, straightforward song ("Walking with Thee", with that buzzy organ and shouts of "no!") and a dancy, funky song like "Sunlight Bathes our Room". The songs are all brought to life with a nasal but unique lead singer and often have electronic touches to them, but take that away and the record is pretty simple rock and roll. "Welcome" might be my favorite song with its driving beat and cool whisperings of "disintegrate!". "Pet Eunuch" is the record's only straightforward rocker that is perfectly dense but in a weird, punkish way. "For the Wars" greatly closes the album with its great guitar melody and unsettling overall tone. "Walking with Thee" recalls everything (as one person said, right on the money if you ask me) from the Beach Boys to Zappa, but in a way that's not ironic or pretentious. A worthy new band makes a great record.

Clinic are self proclaimed Residents fans (check out the jacket for their full length debut 'Internal Wrangler' and you'll see black and white pictures of guys in tuxes with eyeballs for heads, thats the Residents) for those of you who don't know (and I don't blame you for not knowing who they are), the Residents are an eccentric bunch of guys who have pushed the limits of what music can be defined as since the late sixties (their first album was released in the early seventies), some call it brilliant, most call it unlistenable. But the history lessons aside, the differences between the Residents and Clinic (musically) is glaring in that the Residents desided very early on that they wanted to make something entirely new, no influences, not even structurally, and Clinic does what a really good art rock band should do and search wide and far for hundreds of obscure sounds and bring them together and brand it their own. The results for the Residents, moaning vocals resembling the eerie sounds that can be heard in your local asylum, and a song structure that can only be desribed as 'twisted', but for Clinic, the result is much more listenable, albiet less original (and that being said only in comparison to the Residents of course).
However heres what seperates the men from the boys, or Clinic from, oh say, the Strokes, Clinic wanders freely in all of their songs from a variety of influences, in a single three minutes Clinic can manage to mix Radiohead, Suicide, Joy Division, the Modern Lovers, Dan the Automator, early Beach Boys, the Monks, the Velvets, and even the Shengri-La's seemlessly. Countless critics will say they are another in a faceless alternative
wave of Radiohead wannabes, not true!

Yowza, these guys have claimed Radiohead's turf as their own and eviticted Thom Yorke and his pals for not paying the rent!
Seriously, "Kid A" suggested the future of rock, but "Walking With Thee" IS the future. I dig Radiohead, but these guys easily shine when compared to that supposedly infalible modern rock institution. Icy cold electronics and full blown straight-on Stooges style rock 'n roll happily co-exist on this modern classic.
"Walking With Thee" benefits from some genius album sequencing. This is what I feel puts it over their debut album, "Internal Wrangler." "Harmony" is the first track, and has much in common with the cool and intellectual sounding rock found on Radiohead albums. If the album continued like this, then Clinic would simply be a group of relatively skilled Radiohead copyists. As the disc continues though, things start to get a little more ragged and jagged. "The Equalizer" starts to dirty up the electronics a bit, and "Welcome" brings in the first prominant guitars on the album. The title track really starts to bring a go for broke sound into the mix (and it will forever be stuck in your head). "Pet Eunuch," the fifth track provides a totally stunning climax for the first side of the album (well, at least I assume that it would be the end of the first side; I've got the CD). Listening to this song is like sticking your head into a jet engine and then running around screaming, "Look Ma! I'm on fire!" While I'm not sure what that means, this track is some of the most cathartic rock n' roll you're likely to hear this side of the MC5.
The everything starts to build up again on "Come Into Our Room" (after a brief tangent on Mr.

Insert CD. Press play. What do you get? Well, you'll be started off with a gorgeous synth-pop gem in "Harmony" rich in eerieness and melancholy. Then the "Equaliser" will explode through your speakers and take you at least 25 years back to when new-wave was born with a bang. Immediately after that the tones subside as "Welcome" takes its tur, another gloomy and easy-paced affair.Then more brilliant synth-guitar compositions are to follow, and so it goes.

Clinic have found something in "Walking with Thee" that they lacked in their previous albums: production and cohesion.
Production is the first thing that will strike you if you know Clinic from previous efforts: more polished more defined. But the most important thing is that the band have finally the sound mix they can do wonders with. A mix of retro-wave, synthesizers and "indie" guitars.
Sure this will have more appeal in the 30-something crowd (for obvious reasons) but i can't see how this can be ignored by anyone with an ear for great music.
Hard to compare to one single other group since the musical influences here are coming from so many sources. You'll recognise many other groups here especially from alternative scenes hidden in the past, and if you dont, well, that's not a bad way to discover them.
It's actually better than that even. This could very well be one of the best kept musical secrets of the last 5 years.Hard to imagine when this would involve Clinic, a group that before this album seemed like going nowhere in particular, but hey, at the end of the day, it's surprises like this that keep the whole thing interesting. No?
