"Live Review - Clowns"

"Featuring members of Brakes, The Poppycocks and Restlesslist, Clowns are without a doubt one of Brighton’s finest live bands, turning wherever they play into a sweaty, heaving mass. Oh and they rock like one mean bastard. For the uninitiated among you, expect peculiar and twisted tales set to dirty garage rock riffs, combining the rockabilly swagger of the Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster with the pop sensibilities of early Squeeze. Disturbing yet darkly playful, if you haven’t had the live experience before then where the hell have you been? Prepare to be well and truly clowned." - BRIGHTON SOURCE - Source Magazine

Bio

Clowns as they are, came together at the end of 2009, with Heathfield (word), Claridge (noise), Waters (bang) and White (boom). The chemistry set exploded! And now, with another White (plink) on board, live shows are celebrations of gleeful, bloody-minded fury.
