Clinic est un groupe originaire de Liverpool, formÃ© en 1997 de Ade Blackburn (guitare, clavier, voix), Brian Campbell (basse, choeurs), Hartley (guitare, clavier) et Carl Turney (batterie).
Sâ€™evertuant Ã porter des masques de chirurgiens, les membres de Clinic font une musique noisy et dÃ©rangeante. Clinic avait dÃ©jÃ sortis deux albums en 2000, John Peel (de la BBC1) leur avait donnÃ© un coup de pouce, mais le succÃ¨s viendra vraiment pour le groupe quand Radiohead, qui apprÃ©ciait assez sa musique leur propose de faire les premiÃ¨res parties de leurs concerts Ã deux reprisesÂ : de juin Ã octobre 2000, puis de septembre Ã octobre 2001.
Clinic a sorti notamment lâ€™album Walking With Thee en 2002 et Winchester Cathedral en 2004. Un 5e album intitulÃ© Â«Â VisitationsÂ Â» comportant 12 titres est sorti le 9 Octobre 2006.
Your profile has been raised considerably since the Radiohead tour. How was thatÂ ?
From â€™Kid Aâ€™ to â€™Amnesiacâ€™, they were touring almost constantly, and we played in Europe and in Japan with them. It was fine. We werenâ€™t treated like the obscure support band that no-one gives a toss about. We really were appreciated both by Radiohead and the audiences. They knew some of the stuff weâ€™d done and they werenâ€™t staying at the bar or whatever.
CarlÂ :Â I think weâ€™re more suitable for Radiohead at this time in their career than at any other. Their audiences are now more receptive to something less mainstream.
Did you socialise with them muchÂ ?
AidenÂ :Â Because a lot of it so geared around the show, and itâ€™s not like going on holiday with someone around Europe, you donâ€™t see that much of each other.
CarlÂ :Â There were communal areas, where we socialised, and itâ€™s cool because youâ€™re sharing the same venue and billing, and you have common ground because youâ€™re into the same music. It was nice, there was no major socialising but it was a nice atmosphere. They werenâ€™t difficult at all. It was an exciting time to hear them doing something different. It was quite a challenging period and to see that over a number of gigs was interesting.
