One of New Zealand music’s maverick spirits, Hamish Kilgour formed The Clean with younger brother David in Dunedin in the late 70s.

A major part of Flying Nun’s early success, they have been hugely influential internationally, particularly in US indie circles, where fans include members of Pavement and Yo La Tengo.
