Curious about Clinic

You can never over-value originality. The Liverpool-based band Clinic have been living and breathing originality on every album they have produced since their inception in 1997. Clinic consists of Ade Blackburn (keyboard, melodica, vocals), Brian Campbell (bass, flute, vocals), Hartley (guitar, clarinet, keyboards), and Carl Turney (drums, piano, backing vocals). They have released three albums on the London independent record label Domino Records, as well as a compilation of their first three EP's. Their fourth full-length album titled Visitations will be released on October 16th in the UK, followed by two separate North American releases, first on iTunes on October 24 and then a Deluxe CD release which will include an additional track on January 23, 2007.

Visitations is one of the best albums that I have heard of 2006, and you can preview and pre-order the album as well as find other valuable information by clicking here.
