Pub Jukebox Record No.0421 : Clinic : "Harmony" [2002]

This is the opening track on Clinic's second album "Walking With Thee" and, like the rest of the set, veers between indie-guitars, electronica and dance music. Like the great Welsh combo Melys, they ventured into the Maida Vale studios on several occasions to produce some tip-top sessions for John Peel. During this period the Liverpool 'art-rock' outfit were on top of their game. They had been honing their sound for over a decade in one form or another.

Complete with hi-hat tish-tishing, "Harmony" has a great rhythm with some haunting piano whilst the melodica provides a spaghetti western element. And midway through there's even something like a Laurie Anderson backing vocal popping up. Sure, they are mix-and-matching but this is really cooking. At the time, Clinic were lauded as the new Radiohead, a band with whom they toured. This album was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album in 2003, but the conservative judging panel went for Coldplay. John Peel and his audience knew better and placed Clinic in the Festive 50 several times.
