CLEVER - Kewdi Udi LP
Limited to 400 copies.
"A degenerate amalgam of mutated underground punk and venomous noise rock, CLEVER are one the most furious forces to hit the Brisbane underground music scene in 2016. A shambolic collection of Brisbane locals drawn from PER PURPOSE, THE WRONG MAN, SEWERS, and PSY ANTS, the four-piece comprises of drummer CALLUM GALLETLY, guitarist FRED GOOCH, bassist HARRY BRYNE and front man MITCH PERKINS. Formed in 2015 the group’s incisive noise punk has become a regular feature within Brisbane’s underground scene. Their music is rage incarnate, exacerbated by the swelter of Queensland’s oppressive heat. Backed by malicious guitar riffs and pounding rhythms Perkins inhabits the role of the tortured and bitterly twisted demagogue. The question of where this persona comes from is too dark of a notion to consider, but there’s an undeniably seductive rawness to the group’s tormented signature sound. Cutting the chaos of their live act into two minute track, 'Your Eyesore’s Sweat' is the first single from the group’s forthcoming debut Kewdi Udi. The fevered track takes the form of an adrenaline fueled confessional. Littered with fevered allusions, threats, stifled screams and dark contemplations the song draws the listener into the stifling underbelly of Australian suburbia."
