Recensione album

Now that the post-punk revival has started winding down, it's up to new bands to start exploring deeper into the sub-sub-genres of rock & roll's past for new ideas. As a result, California's Clipd Beaks take as their starting point the meeting point between the artier, more conceptual end of progressive rock and punk's D.I.Y. aggression that led to bands like This Heat, very early Scritti Politti, the Homosexuals, and much of the late-'70s roster of Chris Cutler's Recommended Records label.

Founding members Ray Benjamin (drums) and Scott Ecklein (bass) knew each other since childhood, and they met Greg Pritchard (guitar) when they were all teenagers making noise on the local punk rock scene.
