Clever Thing are a sequin ball-gown dripping in kaleidoscopic vomit. If the vigour of swing music is their skeleton, then the visceral spirit of unforgiving rock ’n roll abandon is their guts. They exist in the little explored musical space between Billie Holiday and Black Flag so expect mean riffs & pretty harmonies in a sea of dark grooves.
Their past outfits (Bad For Lazarus / Pink Lizards / The James Cleaver Quintet & Atomic Kitten – no, seriously) were all revered for live shows as soulful as they were cataclysmic. Together this could get a little messy.
