The Music Slut


Clinic @ Bowery Ballroom: Earth Angels

Donning Hawaiian button down shirts, matching gray khakis and their signature accessory (surgical masks), Clinic stunned NYC with a no fuss rip roaring 21 song mega set. The first half of the evening focused solely on their brand new release (Do It) and it was flawless. In particular, 'The Witch' & 'High Coin' radiated elegantly throughout the 600 capacity venue. For the latter portion of the gig, Clinic highlighted a selection of psych/punk favorites from their earlier efforts, stretching as far back as 1998's 'Kimberley' & 'Monkey On Your Back'.

Loudest cheers of the night would easily be awarded to Clinic's most well known track - 'Walking With Thee' as well as the 1-2 closing punch of Internal Wrangler's 'The Return Of Evil Bill' & '2/4'. For an act with eleven years under their collective belts, the Liverpool based noncomformists sounded as hypnotic and masterful as ever. In fact, I'd declare that the quartet currently rests upon their aural pinnacle. Visit Clinic on MySpace. View four more photos, analyze the complete setlist & download a Visitations era MP3 below.
