Clinic | RUG179 | Released: 11/07/04
'The Magician' is the story of one person's recovery after 11 years in the wilderness, to become a professional magician. It's enhanced with marimba and harsh fuzztones. Erasmus Benedict, Tape Op. Clinic have a sense of humour so black they make 'Psycho' look like a horror film. Perhaps that's why Clinic are certain that they've just made their most accessible record yet. Extract 1 from the beautiful song-cycle that is upcoming album Winchester Cathedral (August 23rd), The Magician is another slice of Clinic's longplayer of a mind. This is 2 minutes of hypnotic, psych-disco - refined, Clinic-style. Expect to hear it drenching decks around town soon.
