iTunes Editors’ Notes

Clinic may be the only psychedelic freak-out band on the planet that perform wearing surgical masks and Hawaiian shirts, but they don’t rely on gimmicks or trendy tricks to make their interesting music. They do it the old fashioned way: with varied musical textures, an affection for layering, distortion and repetitive grooves, mind-bending imagery, and really glorious guitar sounds. Do It!, the Liverpool band’s fifth album, isn’t much of a departure from albums past, but that may be the point. A few tracks like “Mary and Eddie” start out as one thing and end as another, but the steady, high voltage charge of tracks like “Memories,” “The Witch,” and “Winged Wheel” carry the collection, carving bottomless grooves with layers of reverberating, acidic guitar, insistent, ominous floor toms, and bass drums beating as if on a war path. Singer Ade Blackburn sounds like a desperate, netherworld voice looking for the light; haunted tones of vintage keyboards and pianos, whispered vocal parts mixed in like an instrumental track, and occasional bongos and jingling bells create a colorful soundscape for a mind trip. The full-on garage punk assault of “Shopping Bag,” and the sinister overtones of “Corpus Christie” and “High Coin” are superb Clinic creations.

Customer Reviews

Who are those masked men?

Another great release by the mysterious Clinic. A little more mellow than usual, and this is a welcome change. As hypnotic and hallucinatory as their debut Internal Wrangler, and almost as good. I dig the new addition of crazy squealing saxophone (Shopping Bag, Corpus Christi) and the flute solo in Free Not Free. Don't worry, the fuzzed out guitars, creepy organ swells and ghostly soothing/frightening vocals are still here, but they've thrown in a few surprises. All in all another wonderfully twisted dose of rock n roll from Liverpool's finest. Remember, let go of the rail...

Finally!

Their best material since Walking With Thee!

yay clinic is back!

i hate to say it, because i love them, but the last two albums (visitations, winchester cathedral) were disappointments overall. with do it, clinic returns to being awesome. it's still no walking with thee or internal wrangler, but it was worth the (long) wait to see clinic return to form. i love this band.
