The Clean Live from Johnny Brenda’s in Philadelphia June 6, 2012.
Just filmed a few songs – some are not complete and I didn’t have a tracklist so they are most likely not in the order they were played. I first heard the Clean (David Kilgour, Hamish Kilgour (RIP) & Robert Scott) when kdu got the Tuatara – A Flying Nun Compilation in the Mid-80s. Although I instantly became a fan of all the bands on the comp and it opened me up to the whole New Zealand scene, the Clean were my favorite. I soon go the compilation not sure if was album or cd at that point and tried to find anything by them. The one problem of discovering this band this way was they had broken up in 1982, so I figured I would never see them. I did manage to see the ex-members current band (ie. The Bats, The Mad Scene and David’s solo bands). Then they reunited and I got to see them at Maxwell’s and then more new music and tours that brought them to Philly. These vidoe clips were shoot on my phone from their show at Johnny Brenda’s. I wasn’t sure I was going to put them up but with the deeply sad passing of Hamish and no other clips that I could find for that show I decided to add them here.
