The Clean’s Hamish Kilgour and The Gordons’ Alister Parker in the same band? It didn’t seem right at first – with The Clean being a collision of psych-rock and folk-pop and The Gordons leaning more to metallic art rock.

But it brought out the best from both, delivering a diversity of sound around an underlying common ground of post-punk discord and German early 1970s rhythms and beats.
