A couple of new Clinic tracks

One of the better press photos ever

Did you know that Clinic recently put out another album? Did you know that it sounds like all their other albums? Does that surprise you? It shouldn’t. Clinic has been playing the same songs for 10 years now. Why they continue to exist is a little bit beyond me – yes, Internal Wrangler and Walking With Thee were great in their day, but... really? Still playing the same old punk-filtered-through freak circus punk? Maybe there are die-hard Clinic fans out there who really need more of this stuff, and actually, Clinic are still “good.” The songs I’m posting here are "good." Clinic know what they want to do, and they do it well. They get paid along the way, too, and I’m happy that they’ve built the success of their early EPs and albums into a long career. Anyway, these songs are a good introduction to Clinic, because really any song from their entire catalog would do.

Clinic - Free Not Free [Do It! LP, 2008]
Clinic - Emotions [Do It! LP, 2008]
