A recent trip to Portland with various contributors to this fine Internets Web Log resulted in many new records, perfect hangovers and a new found love for that city. A group of us were browsing records at one of the many great shops there, when the clerk put on the newest comp by New Zealand's The Clean (link included above). Early 80s, late 70s dark twang pop with perfect squawky keys, twangy guitars, etc....Nearly every one of us in the store that day left with a copy of this record. I am obsessed with them. My wife is obsessed with them. I don't know how I've been so blind for so many years. But now I know.
Here's a video I found for a great song "Tally Ho." Hellz yes sir.
