Practice


On turning 60, legendary producer Clive Langer decided it was time to get a band together. Previous to that moment, Clive's CV read like a route map of the last four decades of the very best British music. As a member of legendary rock''roll misfits Deaf School, Langer had helped influence a generation of kids who'd go on to form bands as diverse as Madness and Frankie Goes to Hollywood. Later on - with studio partner Alan Winstanley - he helped steer everything from One Step Beyond to Kilimanjaro Too-Rye-Ay to Shipbuilding (a co-write with Elvis Costello) with stop offs for the Attractions, the Commotions, Morrissey, Roddy Frame and even the Dame himself (Bowie\'s timeless classic Absolute Beginners). But something about that significant age set him on a different path. Formed two years ago, The Clang Group are that band. Their first LP is called 'Practice'. Recorded at Iguana Studio in Brixton with musician mates and long time cohorts (including Suggs and Roxy Music's Andy Mackay), 'Practice' is jagged, melodious, ingenious, impulsive and exhilarating. Usually all the same time. Driven by a frantic and restless energy, it's exactly the kind of record you'd hope someone would make if they woke up aged 60 thinking, "Fuck it, I'm going to start a rock''roll band." Yes, that good.
