Clean Up Your Act, They're Back

The Clean are back! Your 70’s punk legends are jet setting across the Pacific to bring you a four show tour. It’s been five years since Melbourne have caught up with the band, and only their third visit to the country, this is definitely a rare opportunity that would be gosh darn unfortunate to miss.

Playing Melbourne for the first time in five years as part of their third Australian tour in 25 years. Prime architects of the Flying Nun sound, The Clean influenced everyone from Pavement, Cat Power and Yo La Tengo to the current crop of Australian jangle pop. Named by Pitchfork as "the Halley's comet of indie-rock", The Clean return to play The Corner on Thursday, January 22 with Lower Plenty and special guests. 

What can be said about The Clean? In 1978, they were the seeds of New Zealand punk and the reason for the founding of the mighty Flying Nun label. A truly magical band who are as vital as ever, The Clean have carved out a big sandbox for everyone to play in. Their influence resonated not only in their homeland but around the world, with followers such as Yo La Tengo, Sonic Youth and Pavement. They can be heard loud and clear in the new generation of indie bands who have The Clean deeply etched into their DNA.

If you’re keen (and why wouldn’t you be) all your ticket information can be found from Corner Presents, and they’re on sale now. So don’t chill, get on it!
