CLOWNS embody the carefree, kick-around attitude that helped make Australian guitar music a worldwide fascination. Their rapid-fire 2013 debut album 'I'm Not Right' was labelled 'savage','sharp' and a 'full on onslaught.' Fast forward twelve months and Clowns have completed a tough touring apprenticeship with some of the nation's greats; Hard Ons, The Meanies, Frenzal Rhomb, Cosmic Psychos and more. Plus slots with Poison Idea and Adolescents.
'Bad Blood' is Clowns latest destructive offering, written amongst the suburban jungle of Cheltenham (where the band grew up) in a complex that houses a bakery, a cattery and a morgue, right across the road from a cemetery. Recorded at at St.Kilda's lauded Hot House Studios with Craig Harnath and Jeremy Giddings using their famous Neve desk and a truckload of vintage and boutique gear, the production is rich, raw and dirty. Urgent but natural. Reflective of the band's can-do DIY approach and go hard or go home attitude.
